5.0 out of 5 stars Who is Jill Scott?, 11 April 2002
This review is from: Who is Jill Scott? (Audio CD)
Who is Jill Scott? This is the question i asked myself when hearing of this lady's talents. I had 14 pounds and i had the choice between going clubbing or buying this album. Thankfully i took the gamble and bought this album. You cannot describe this album, incredible, breathtaking just sounds to shallow. I have owned it for more than one year and you discover things about each song every time you listen to it. When i first heard the album i naturally took to the widely appreciated 'gettin in the way' and 'a long walk'. I now love 'the way' and 'love rain'. Thats what is so great about her album, you can appreciate it for the soulful tunes and her beautiful voice but once you hear it loads of times you begin to understand the lyrics and appreciate how amazing this ladys grasp of words is. You also have to give credit to the production team coz they have managed to encapture the tone of each song with stunning originality. To try and bottle talent like Ms. Scott's in a studio and put it on cd must be have been incredibly difficult but they have done brilliantly! I think to simply label this lady nu-soul, another erykah badu etc. is totally wrong. Her album blows everything else away! In some ways this is bad, since buying the album my expectance level has gone up so when i buy a new album im nearly always disappointed! If she blows you away when you hear this album (trust me she will), see her live, you will be totally stunned!! If you are a rnb/soul or any type of good music fan you have got to get this cd, if not you will not have been touched by if not the, one of the greatest artists today!! Be prepared!
