4.0 out of 5 stars Fame Academy, 11 Dec 2002
This review is from: Fame Academy (Audio CD)
Fame Academy has introduced some fresh talent to the music scene, as the numerous other 'pop stars' competitions have.
The album is composed of mainly well known hits, and they are all performed well. Everybody who followed BBC's Fame Academy will enjoy this CD.
It includes a mix of old songs, and new, covered aptly by the Fame Academy students, who are not afraid to let their personalities give the songs a unique edge.
This album is impressive, and stands out from the other manufactured pop act CDs. It consists of some of the best songs performed on the television series. It also includes songs written by the contestants, such as Lemar's outstanding 'Lullaby'.
I feel this album was released prematurely, and the production has suffered from this. Great performances, such as Lemar and David's version of Stevie Wonder's "As" were not included on the album due to this.
Despite the rushed production, I still rate this recording
excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curtis Mayfield - Superfly, 2 July 2002
This review is from: Superfly (Audio CD)
This limited edition version of the Curtis Mayfield soundtrack contains additional tracks and alternative versions.
The first CD is full of Mayfield classics which make him a representative for the social movements of the 60's and early 70's. He makes a stand against racism and for race pride. 'Pusherman', 'Freddie's Dead', 'Superfly' and 'You should know better' are great tracks symbolising characteristics of black american culture that would exist long into the future.
The content of this record is still very much relevant today, which makes the lyrics interesting. The beats are tuneful and rhythmic, this soul album is truly a classic. Anybody who listens to any type of music of black origin, will love this album and should own it.
Disk 2 is packed with instrumentals, remixes, demos and alternative tracks. The music is soulful and has a chill out quality to it, something you can listen to whilst relaxing, and something you can dance to.
Altogether a great album. 5 out of 5 for this relevant soul classic.
