Biography

She grew up listening to '70s soul and '80s hip-hop, but Erykah Badu drew more comparisons to Billie

Holiday upon her breakout in 1997, after the release of her first album, Baduizm. The grooves and production on the album are bass-heavy R&B, but Badu's languorous, occasionally tortured vocals and delicate phrasing immediately removed her from the legion of cookie-cutter ...

Thank you Robert for your review. Although that isn't how you spell Mama, yours seemed a very fair and even handed appraisal. However, I get the impression that you did buy some bootleg tape that must be doing the rounds.

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 have to add to all the previous comments about this album. If I could rate this album less than one star I would. I discovered its existance whilst browsing amazon and pre-ordered it straight away. Unfortunately for me, i also spotted the new d'angelo album (yoda) just after and purchases both them.

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.

****UPDATE ON ORIGINAL REVIEW****

Hello again!

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! : )

****ORIGINAL REVIEW****

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.

This purported new album release from Erykah Badu seems to be an attempt by a shoddy so-called label to release random / previously released material mixed in with some extremely poor live recordings (you can picture them standing there during one of Erykah's gigs with their mobile phone on voice record!). Everything the other reviewers have said is true - this looks, feels and sounds like a bootleg. The back cover of the CD lists the "Excutive Produceder" as Think Differently Music. The TDM website, as far as I can see, doesn't even exist, and its MySpace page is less than helpful.

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...
