A few years before the teenage-to-womanhood liberation of Janet Jackson's epic Control album, Stacy Lattisaw stripped a lot of her R&B roots away on this album-length ode to being teenager. It's a heavily sugarcoated synth pop affair, no doubt due in part to the production aesthetics of Narada Michael Walden, who took many of the ideas implemented here and evolved them for other artists such as Whitney Houston later in the decade. The topics are highly predictable in nature, with titles like "16," "Black Pumps and Pink Lipstick," and "What's So Hot 'Bout Bad Boys" pretty much delivering as advertised. However, Lattisaw's vocals are in prime form, as she easily reaches a wide range of notes and delivers passages with relative ease, something that a very young diva in training by the name of Beyonc‚ no doubt heard on her parents' turntable. ~ Rob Theakston

Rating 4.0 Diamond in the rough Music Lover: from Zanadu -- February, 9, 2008

It's really a travisty that Stacy Lattisaw never gained the crossover status and appeal that she well deserved. She possessed the vocal skills that would put many of today's so called "divas" to shame. All of her projects on the cotillion label were both well written and adroitly produced for their time. The album "Sixteen" for some reason fell through the cracks and sold poorly at the time of it's release; a shame because there is much here to enjoy.
Most of the uptempo selections sound dated by today's standards, but the ballads in my opinion remain pure, lighthearted and sweet. Take a listen to, "I've loved you somewhere before", "Miracles", "The Ways of love" and "Johey" and see don't they leave you with a smile on your face. "Sixteen" is definately a must have for any Stacy Lattisaw fan and it's well over due for this underrated singers back catalogue to become available.
