City High's two-guys-and-a-girl combination will strike inevitable comparisons to their predecessors in the hip-hop neo-soulster sweepstakes, namely Digable Planets and The Fugees. But their perimeters have been adjusted to fit the post-millennial tension that urban radio is currently experiencing. Bypassing all sorts of obvious "conscious" hipsterisms, the trio's music strikes a fine balance between self-realisation and street-level realness. The fact that they chose to address such basic concerns as low income single motherhood (on "What Would You Do") and the perils of creeping with jailbait ("15 Will Get You 20") immediately sets them apart from both the Missy Elliotts and the Lucy Pearls of the world. Stylistically, the record is surprisingly heavy on the smoothed-out R&B tip, and singer Claudette Ortiz is unquestionably more Destiny's Child than L-Boogie. But the production, handled by Executive Producer Wyclef Jean, DJ Clark Kent and others, subverts the classic quiet storm formula and serves as an interesting counterpoint to the group's capable vocals. City High is a keeper. --Rebecca Levine

While the concept of a trio with one female vocalist isn't new (Lucy Pearl springs to mind) the subject matters in this album are dripping in fresh youthful honesty, and the tunes behind the lyrics are straight outta the streets in summertime. Are they singing from experience? It sounds like it.
This is a must have for all R&B fans, and truly a 5/5

The moment I heard the first song: 'What Would You Do?', I loved it. It seemed like something pretty different to any other group I have ever heard before and I wanted to hear more and more. The lyrics were much more significant than the ordinary (Steps) song and seemed to be a lot more like a real life situation. I bought the single, and liked the remixes and video that accompanied it.
Along with the video was a sample of three songs from their album ('Why', 'Song For You', 'Caramel', and 'You Don't Know Me'). I really liked the songs, and as soon as the debut album 'City High' was out, I bought it. I listened to it over and over, but I never got sick of it...I still love it!
Although this is only their first album and I have no idea whether they will be a long lasting band, or one of those that just come and go, I still love listening to their music. Each and every song has a different style, mood and feel to it...they are all different. No matter how many times I listen to the album, it never, ever gets tiresome.
City High truly have undeniable talent. They are poised to become a formidable force in contemporary Hip-Hop/R&B music, and reach world success!

Problably the best r&b album of 2001 when you compare this album with likes of Mary J. Blige: No More Drama, Miss Elliott: So Addictive, Maxwell: Now or the hundreds of r&b artists pushing albums this year.
First singel "What Would You Do", released february 2001 hit the Billboard Top 100 chart for one week in april 2001 and disappeared the next week, on grounds of its strong anti-social lyrics. Radiostations in the States wouldn't play the single. Late summer this album was finally released in the USA alongside their debut-single in the UK. Lots of fantastic songs are included like the wonderful soulful ballade "Why", the strong "City High Anthem", "Do The Right Thing"(a bit of garage here) and "You Don't Know Me". Every track filled with frank, heartful and clear views of national and social politics in a devided USA. But once and again a slide touch of romance.
Beautiful Claudette Ortiz, Ryan Toby and Robby Pardlo makin' sweet r&b for minds and ears with at little help from executive producer Wyclef "all-over-the-place" Jean. Buy this record and you'll be amazed. Michael Mørch, Radio HNR, Copenhagen, Denmark
