It's been a long time coming (5years & counting)since Faith's last c.d. All I can say is that it was well worth the wait. I went to the local Wal-Mart on lunch today to pick it up, and couldn't stop smiling the whole way back to work. Faith is back and better than ever. Her voice is great, and to me sounds even more mature, and solid. So glad she's back, and I love the range of music from laid back to hype party music, and from ballads to concious songs, she covers it all. Gotta love her!
The Something about Faith intro, sets the tone for this cd, and just gets you excited for what's to come.
I Still is classic Faith, (the girl sounds good) and I love the theme! In a day and time when people are breaking up over the smallest things, it's good to know that love can last when you put in the work (Big up Faye & Todd)(This is one of the stronger songs on the c.d and has potential to be the next single, I hope it is!)
Way you move, I loved from the first time I heard it. Snoop is so smooth, and this is such a feel good song. It's very simple and has a throwback feel to it, love it!
Real Things lyrically is very impressive, however I had a hard time catching the rythym so I could truly appreciate the lyrics. I do like the song, just wish the beat was a little more cohesive with her lyrics. The more you listen to it, the more it grows on you.
Worth it is Faith's spin on the classic, my man ain't doing me right type song, but it's actually enjoyable because of her vocal capability. You'll be singing right along with her, the hook is just infectious,I like it a lot!
Gone Alredy was a great choice for her first single. While it is really radio friendly, her voice is just awesome, and if you've ever been in that type of situation you feel it even more. Her voice just gets stronger throught the song. Perfection!
Party featuring Redman is an upbeat number, it sounds a little dated. It's definitely a party song, but not one of my favorites on the c.d.
Right Here, is just plain sexy, classic Faith puts you in the mind of some slower ballads of hers (Catching Feelings, Reasons). Really nice!
Your Lover is nice, the beat is really funky too,(if you can get over all of the clapping in the background), love the intro, and I love her style of singing here, where she's really matching her vocals with the jazzy style of the song.I picture her in a beautiful dress singing in front of a big gand, Dinah Washington syle.I really like the song it's cute and really fun.
Can't Stay away is another one for the radio. I really like Keyshia's take on the song, as she's singing a little higher (note wise) than Faith. Faith really takes a laid back vocal approach to the song. I like this song, even though I thought it would be more trading vocals between the two. This song also has potential to be a single,the beat is super hot, and the addition of Keyshia will pull in a new generation of listeners.
Sunshine is another upbeat song. Made me smile :)Faith always has to have an upbeat song e.g (Love like this, You used to love me) so this is one of them, while it's simple it's very catcy. I like!
Everday Struggle Feat Raekwon is good. It samples her former husband(Notorious Big. This song starts the more concious side of this c.d. It's real laid back,and reminds you to not take life for granted.
The love in me is for all of the faithfuls out there explaining just why we love her so much. Love it! The music at times reminds me of Billie Holiday .
Change is just a reminder that we all can make a difference. Very good job for the message, but production was very simple, (maybe too simple):(. It sounds like it would be used for a disaster situation (911, Haiti, etc). I don't listen to it every time. :(
Troubled World, has been out all over the web for awhile. I like the additions of Kelly Price, and Jessica Reedy (who is absolutely fab, just listen to the low notes she hits on the very first line!), and I love how it builds to the end. Another stellar performance vocally. All I can say is wow!
The Bonus Ballad Baby Lay is another sexy song. I really feel her on this one! She's simply telling her man relax, baby I got this! Love it, and her too!
I'm actually really happy with this outing! I am hopeful that a strong 2nd single will really push this project in the right direction. Love you Faith!
