Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Angela's debut album is superb. As a member of Cooly's Hot Box she made some fantastic music. Now, stepping forward to front her own music she has produced a wonderful selection of songs, steeped in an old school soul/funk tradition. She is an excellent keyboardist, handling the Rhodes with aplomb, and has a voice that reminds me of a younger Jean Carne.
All the tunes are good, some are top notch. The picks for me are "Call", a lovely lilting melody. "Don't Wanna Be The One", this is an excellent mid-tempo number, has some lovely changes. "Rescue Me" is an excellent song, full stop.
I was lucky enough to see her on 23rd April at the Jazz Cafe in London, performing cuts from the album and with Cooly's, so most of the tunes I heard live first before the CD. Fantastic live, and some great production touches on the CD.
It's a keeper, I hope Angela gets the recognition she deserves with this CD!

I read the previous reviews with some intrepidation and chanced this purchase based upon the Coolys Hot Box release. What can I say - a very talented Lady, who oozes class. Buy it, play it and enjoy. Wonderful 21st century soul.

Format: Audio CD
Angela Johnson's <They Don't Know> represents the coming of age for one of the lead singers from the underground soul faves Cooley's Hotbox. This is a record of consumate soul, deeply studied in the tradition of soul and gospel musics. Ms. Johnson is in full possession of this record, crafting 16 songs that are a fine showcase for her ample talents. As a musiscian, singer, songwriter and producer, Ms. Johnson shows that she has few peers with her breadth of talent. The grooves on the album are simple, familiar and fresh sounding. Free from the gloss and over- production of modern R&B, this album will have a long shelf life. Tracks of particular note are the title track "They don't know' which sounds like it could have fallen off a mid 70' Norman Connors record; I won't cry over you -- is a torchy soul blues number that contains immaculate vocals; "Money don't Grow on trees" is a funny catchy ditty filled with some funny little truths about self serving friends. Elsewhere the album has a consistent funky, soulful flow. Enjoy.

Criminally unknown Artist creates a brilliant Debut 29 May 2003
By Donovan Juan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The world of music today is a very sad one. Those with a thing called TALENT are so often ignored in a world where popularity stakes and the bottom line are what is most important to a major record label and thus the public at large.
Angela Johnson's debut album, along with recent releases by Peven Everett and the slightly more popular Donnie show that some of the best music today is happening not on the pop charts, but in a more talented underground scene.
Angela is a highly talented singer, songwriter and musician remeniscent in skill to Babyface in writing love songs with a story while her sound is like a female Musiq mixed with Alicia Keys and the new funky Babyface. The album's best tracks are those that let her show her writing skills such as "Sad Days", "Call" and "I Still Care".
This is probably one of the best Soul albums I have purchased in recent months and it is a shame that so many people are missing out on her talent. What makes it so much worse is that she actually does have the talent, songwriting abilities and good looks to make it big, but in the world we live in today, a talent like hers is not always appreciated. All I can say it that I feel like someone who has stumbled upon a rare gem and I am glad to own this album.

THIS IS IT 10 Jun. 2003
By JonnyG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well here is that new link to what Aretha was doing. I saw this young Lady live and as she sat at the piano and belted out her songs it reminded me of when Aretha would sit at the piano and do the same. Angela vocals are amazing without over singing. Gospel, the blues, jazz, real soul music is alive and well in this woman.

A Class Act - Truly A Soulful Systa' 9 Jan. 2007
By SoulChild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard this Cd again while surfing the net looking for new artists. Instantly I was pleased with what I heard. Everything is so well put together (the arrangements, lyrics, and then her voice tops it off by soothing the soul). She is in the elite class. I hope this Systa' goes places, and gets the recognition that she is due!

You'll either love it or hate it 19 Jun. 2002
By munzeeyun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're reading this review, you must be a real soul music connoisseur. Angela Johnson is virtually unknown here in the US. She is the singer of the band Cooly's Hotbox (also unknown in the US unless you're into very underground urban music). Their song "Make Me Happy" is one of my all time favorites.
Angela is a very talented singer with a nice voice, and objectively speaking this is a good album. However, the songs were a little too earthy/organic/bluesy for my taste, with that whole neo-classic soul vibe going on (which I hate!). There are no songs that can match "Make Me Happy" here. Anyway, you will probably love this album if you enjoy listening to artists like Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Lauryn Hill, India Arie, Maxwell and all the other neo-classic soul stuff (personally I really do not like that style!). On the other hand, you will probably be very disappointed if you're like me and expect something more along the lines of Mary J., Faith Evans, SWV, Aaliyah, etc.
