3 albums deep Amel Larrieux has proved that positivity,spirituality and love are still things that exist in our ever changing society."Morning" is one of her most original projects an undefying music style that only can be interpreted as 'Amels Music'.

1.Trouble - Starts the album off on a warm notion the only true upbeat song on this set it does have an infectious guitar riff which give it a smokey jazz cafe vibe.Her vocals reminded me alot of Emiliana Torrini a very enjoyable song the only thing negative about it is that its so short clocking in at 2:45 10/10

2.Unanswered Questions - One thing that Amel is great out (apart from singing) is story telling and the way she brings lyrics to life with her soft yet powerful voice this song was one that i instantly took a liking to.She just sings about things that she wants to find out but never found the answers to a nice song for summer nights 10/10

3.No One Else - One of the low points for me i didn't take to this at all it just never took off as much as i wanted it to i think she tried to match the greatness of her previous song of this calibre "Makes Me Whole" but comes up short (that song is so beautiful) 4/10

4.Earn My Affections - I thought i was gonna love this song the beat is sick! but thats all really i find that Amel comes off to high and mighty on this song like shes better than everyone else i just couldn't get into this one 3/10

5.Weary - This is the first single which can tell why she picked it as lead.It's one of the only songs that has a commericial sound in terms of production the video was great and she looked beautiful and song about just loving someone and having there back and being their soulmate 10/10

Amel Larrieux's third album "Morning" is quite similar to her first two releases although it sounds slightly less interesting and has less variety. It is also much shorter with only ten tracks and fails to make 40 minutes in length. Nevertheless, most of the songs are very attractive and her originality shines through once again, creating another strong record.

The opener "Trouble" is quite a mediocre Neo Soul number with a very simple and disappointing chorus. "Unanswered Question" has a gentle and hypnotic rhythm and melody which make it strangely appealing in its simplicity. "No One Else" is a very sweet piano led ballad with some mild jazz influences. "Earn My Affections" has a very addictive melody and original vocal harmonies with some very suave sounding beats. "Weary" is a straight up funky groove with an infectious chorus. "Morning" is a bit of a sleepy and flat sounding track halfway between soul and pop but not quite making either genre. "Gills And Tails" is a soothing jazzy composition with sweet light vocals. "Magic" is once again quite monotonous and simple with just a beat, bass and vocals but it seems to work and I enjoy this song each time I listen to it. The most interesting track is the Neo Soul influenced "Just Once" as it has an infectious melody and chorus with a great funky bass. "Mountain Of When" is a mesmerising dark hip-hop influenced track with soothing vocals.

Overall, "Morning" is very good and has some really strong highlights. But from an artist who has penned some amazing tracks over the past 6 years, I would have expected more variety and a wider selection of songs. Amel Larrieux could have done better.

Format: Audio CD
Ive just bought the album and already Im melting into Mrs Larrieux's voice that view artists can achieve. I have to say for some this may seem like a bias review as Ive loved her other two albums but I assure you I give merit where merit is due. If you have never heard of this lovely lady then please do. 'Infinite Possibilities,' her first album is always going to be my favourite but who knows this album is really working its charm on me!

Im not sure who I can compare her to but I personally think she does fit the neo-soul category. Her vocals allow her to differ from the likes of Erykah Badu (also one of my fav artists...shes amazing live) and Jill Scott yet if I had to make a comparison shes leaning more to Jill. Easily lacing your ears and mind with a silky layer of sheer effortless bliss. Not so poetic. Her lyrics read like a book...actually she has the simplicity of India Aire but beauty and smoothness of Jill Scotts voice...though dont be fooled into thinking Ms Larrieux is fairly new. Shes been around since I was in High School and thats a long time near enough 12 odd years...god Im getting old! ;o) Hope this review helps.

Personally, maybe its because I didn't have amazingly high expectations for this album, but after several plays... all I can say is I'm almost completely blown away! So why 4 stars I hear you say... 38 minutes is why.

Apart from the fact that this is genuinely a well put together piece of classical magic, it is a true return to form for Amel and once again all I can say is "Thank you very very much"

Fave tracks (in absolutely no particular order) Gills & Tails, No One Else, Unanswered Question and Morning.

"Morning" by Amel Larrieux 25 April 2006
By RyGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Oh man what an album! It may even be better than her last one (Bravebird). The album starts out with "Trouble" which is one of the best songs on the album, and then slides to "Unanswered Question" which is almost as up-tempo and good. "'No One Else'" is a slow-moving song built on a beautiful piano and shows off Amel's gorgeous vocals. The beef of the album lies in the middle and the stretch from "Earn My Affections" to "Magic" is amazing!!! The album might be a little short but the 10 strong songs will surely keep me happy for a long, long time. This will definately be the best R&B album released this year, and probobly one of the best albums released. I am very impressed!

Best Songs: "Weary," "Trouble," "Gills And Tails," "Earn My Affections," & "Magic"

A LOT OF GOOD MORNINGS WITH MORNING 16 Jun 2006
By candisweets - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I hate the way record companies use the cookie-cutter approach to backing/promoting artists, i.e. if it worked for one artist then the rest must sound really similar. Amel Larrieux has been a breath of fresh air to me and she has been criminally underrated. This cd has not altered my opinion one bit. The imagery of "Gills and Tails" was literally 'breath-taking'. "Weary" should be my own personal anthem because it was like Amel was walking around in my brain. Her work sometimes seems to be a throw-back to another time and at other times it seems futuristic. I heard "Bravebird" one day and was intrigued by this woman. I went and found her previous cd "Infinite Possibilities" and anxiously awaited the release of "Morning". I have yet to be disappointed. If you're solely interested in top-forty music, Amel is not for you. However, if you're looking for music that moves, is familiar and foreign at the same time, give Ms. Larrieux a listen. No cookie-cutter here!

Miss Larrieux Did IT Again! 28 April 2006
By T. Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Amel Larrieux IS my FAVORITE artist! Naturally, when I heard her third album would be released on April 25th, I had to purchase it immediately. Her music, especially this album is always tranquil, purposeful, it has a silent humbleness, yet a strong boldness. It is sweet and genuine,even the harmonies contain this vivid magnetism. She is an awesome artist, a seemingly humble person and an incredible performer! My favorite song on this album,besides, "Weary," is the first track, "Trouble." Please purchase all of Amel's Albums..one, two, and three, your SOUL album collection is not complete wthout them!

PEACE

(3.5 Stars) A Good 'Morning' Despite The Occasional Clouds Here And There 8 May 2006
By Charles L. Hubbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most everybody remembers the R&B duo Groove Theory back in the 90s. Songs like "Tell Me" and "Baby Luv" commanded the airwaves. Nowadays, Amel Larrieux goes the independent route with a solo career minus her former partner Bryce Wilson. Her best solo record was Infinite Possibilities, her first release that wet the appetites of her loyal listeners. Her last album Bravebird did much the same, but was the first of her independent efforts and didn't do much for her ongoing career. Even with the drawbacks of less promotion and little press from being on a small indie label, Amel goes forward with her latest album Morning. Although not as great as her first solo album, Morning is a decent enough to check out if you're a longtime fan.

The album starts off with "Trouble," a rather amateurish sound compared to her traditional cuts. "Unanswered Question" gets back on track to what most are used to hearing from Amel. "No One Else" is just as powerful as "Make Me Whole" from her first solo album. "Earn My Affection" is an okay track, but "Weary" is a great choice for what will probably amount to the only single release from the album. The title cut "Morning" reminds me of the ambient sounds of Radiohead's Kid A. "Gills And Tails" is the mellow cut that would get the most play in a lounge or jazz club. "Magic" talks about tapping into your creative side to solving everyday problems like bills, stress, and the like. "Just Once" is a fine song even though the background beat somehow reminds me of the bassline from Volume 10's "Pistol Grip Pump" somehow! The album wraps up with a rather peculiar sounding "Mountain of When."

Morning is not something you would run out and get if you are just looking for any kind of R&B album. Fans of Amel Larrieux will appreciate this album the most, as well as those who are into the more mellow, alternative R&B scene.

Wow. 26 April 2006
By Brae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
She has never sounded better. I'd been awaiting this album, though I wasn't in love with either of her previous solo albums. But I caught her vh1 soul "Listening Party" and I have to say after hearing how Amel speaks about music, I feel her soul was captured on Morning. The arrangements are fresh, her voice doesn't get lost or overpower the music, the lyrics are thoughtful and elegant. Oh her voice is such a gift. It's all uplifting.

And the album is perfectly titled - something to wake up to and carry with you throughout your day.
