Badu Explicit Lyrics
Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
This is a display of some of Erykah Badu's finest collaborations and rare material... Think Differently provide us with some very interesting pairings (Sa Ra, Georgia Anne Muldrow, D'Angelo and more) as well as an incredible cover of Diana Ross' 'Love Hangover' on this one of a kind collection.
Top Customer Reviews
According to a few Googles, the 2008 album isn't available until late February but, you've already bought and sold your copy.
It might be small evidence but even Amazon, who note that the disc is 'in stock' are unwilling/unable to list the album tracks. It suggests that, despite the cover art, that the album is not yet out.
My last piece of evidence is e-bay, of course, which is usually awash with music, expecially from the states. There is NOT A SINGLE MENTION OF THIS ALBUM ON E-BAY. Not a one.
And, in review, Ms Badu say that she hasn't even finalised the name of the album.
Erykah Badu might is all about quality. She might have lost her record label but, did she really lose her mind? I don't think so.
I was gutted with the d'angelo album. Another poor quality rehash of previouly released album tracks. Do not buy...! Thinking that I will be consoled by the new (ha!) Erykah album, it went from bad to extremely bad.
Today I've learnt an important lesson about buying albums on amazon.
Afro - I fear you're right! Approx 5 mins after I posted my review a friend of mine found all the same little clues as you! I've triple checked & you're right - the new album isn't out 'til Feb - so I'm no longer disappointed with Erykah, I'm now peed off with Amazon for selling BOOTLEGS! Are you listening, Amazon, YOU ARE SELLING BOOTLEGS!
Anyway, I've had a listen to the new track "Honey" (off the REAL new album) & it is delicious! Can't wait for it's release... and the other good news? She's still with Motown! : )
OK - I'll start by saying that I am a huge Erykah Badu fan... I have the whole back catalogue so was really looking forward to this CD landing on my doorstep... Unfortunately, I don't think I have ever been so disappointed by an album.
Lets start at the beginning...
I opened the packaging and was taken aback by how cheap the production of album was - the artwork was pretty ropey; the inlay "card" was one piece of paper & the cd artwork itself was v minimalist... but in a bad way. Compared to the effort put into Worldwide Underground, this was comparable to an album sold after a gig by a Pub Singer. None the less, I put my first impressions behind me & put the CD in the drive...
At first, I thought there was a problem with my player - then it dawned on me, it wasn't my player, it was the quality of the recording. It was a recording of a live gig, but the sound was really dull & muffled - it was like it had been recorded on a dictaphone! Track 2 was exactly the same sound quality, but this was a mediocre cover of a Diana Ross song.Read more ›
I'm just shocked this CD is offered to purchase on Amazon. I received this today as a gift, but have given it back, so my other half can get a refund. Do not waste your money on this - save it for Erykah's actual forthcoming album. At least you know she'll be benefiting from the profits! Who knows who/what is making money out of this...

Like many others that have reviewed this album I confused this excuse for a release with the current new album. Read morePublished on 10 May 2008 by ESP
This label 'Think Differently' is not Erykah's official label and this cd isn't an official release. Read more
No reflection on Erykah herself I am sure, indeed I doubt she authorised or even knows about this poor quality bootleg. It is, however, a complete waste of money. Read morePublished on 7 Feb. 2008 by S. Ball
