I bought "Copasetik & Cool" on a whim back in March '04, lured only by the cover photo of Hil St. Soul's beautiful lead singer, Hilary Mwelwa. Little did I know that this impulse purchase would become one of my favorite albums of 2004 (I know - I'm a little late). Equal parts Whitney Houston (the good parts) and India.Arie, Hil St. Soul is a UK R&B band who easily weaves from classic soul to jazz to hip hop without (literally) missing a beat. All songs on "Copasetik & Cool" are well done, especially the standout track "Pieces," an exceptional cover of "For The Love of You," and the title track (which sounds just like Soul II Soul). I can't wait for more from this talented group, and am glad to have learned that, once in a while, you can judge a book by its cover.
