5.0 out of 5 stars 14 years overdue! 6 Feb 2007
By NICO VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Caron Wheeler, widely known for her stint in Soul 2 Soul and, in particular, the massive hit Keep on Moving, has to be the most underrated UK soul star! I stumbled across this album from 1993 by pure accident but I'm so glad I found it. Although now somewhat dated, this is full of fresh and funky gems and Caron's voice is outstanding. I would have bought this just for the remake of Hendrix's Wind Cries Mary - which is not only brilliantly re-vamped but also excellently executed, with elements of the original live recording of the track interweaved.

If you like your soul original, funky and thoughtful then get this immediately! Perhaps a re-release is in order!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid 2nd CD From Caron!! 12 Jan 2002
By Seand67 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This IS NOT the Debut CD by Caron Wheeler!! Her 1st (& out of print) CD was 1990's 'UK Blak', but 'Beach Of The War Goddess' is a solid project with a variety of innovative producers. The 1st single from this CD was 'I Adore You' (produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and originally on the 'Mo Money' soundtrack). Caron's vocals are strong, but yet subtle at the same time, and those who loved her Soul II Soul music, will enjoy this effort. This CD was not promoted properly, and that's a shame because Caron is a pioneer of the 'Neo Soul' genre of music (incl.Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, India.Arie, Jill Scott, etc.). All 'Neo Soul' Music lovers should get BOTH of Caron's solo CDs, her Soul II Soul projects, and 'Cookie-The Anthropological Mixtape' by Me'Shell NdeGeOcello (Caron sings on many of the tracks). Highly recommended tracks on 'Beach Of The War Goddess':'I Adore You', 'Soul Street', 'Lite As A Feather', 'Do You Care', 'Father', In Our Love', and MORE!
Peace, SD (of 'Chaka's World')

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible singer matched with incredible production 9 Mar 2000
By Scott Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Former Soul II Soul songstress Caron Wheeler gives us a vastly-underrated, incredible second solo album that quietly set the standard for intellectually-minded, truly soul-searching R&B that artists like Erykah Badu, Amel Larrieux and others are mining now. Wheeler has one of the most increible voices and singing styles of any singer out today, and it's a shame more people didn't buy this record when it was out and she could have used the sales. There's a smashing ballad ("Do You Care?"), Jam&Lewis production ("I Adore You", which was the only really good song on the deplorable MO' MONEY soundtrack) and some other great, surprising gifts of vocal agility, grand production and simply good songwriting. The best R&B album you never heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beach of the War Goddess :Caron Wheeler 15 April 2013
By MissK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Caron when she worked with Soul II Soul , and I also enjoyed her solo project! This woman from the UK has soul! I like every song on this CD! There are uptempo and slower melodies, all wonderful! My favorite song is Adore. I can recall when it first came out, and it received alot of radio airplay! The other songs are not to be slept on! If you enjoy Neo soul artist or just damn good R&B music pick this up for your collection asap! I'm pleased with my purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treasure! 14 Dec 2009
By Geri A. Polk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some of the greatest artists are truly hard to find and Caron Wheeler is one of them. I was so happy to have found not only this CD but also her first UK Black on Amazon. The vendor I purchased from was very friendly and helpful and open to making sure that my shopping experience with them be a satisfied one. It was! I was very pleased with the product, shipping, the safe packaging and the customer service. The price was a big bonus as well! I will definitely purchase from this vendor again!
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest 24 Mar 2014
By Joseph Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection of songs is one of the greatest albums ever produced. Caron Wheeler is simply a person with a GOD given gift. She has shared her gift with us and I say this because I want all of her listeners to realize how fortunate we truly are. Whenever I introduce someone to this album they think it was recorded, published and distributed recently. When I inform them it was made a few decades ago, their jaw usually drops to the floor. We both end up staring at the floor wondering when they will decide to pick it up! I am enamored with her sound, her voice, the pulsating rhythm. The arrangements are just blissful to the ear. The tribute to Jimi Hendrix is a bonus. It is surely a collector's item for the serious music fan.
