5.0 out of 5 stars unfoolish, 30 Oct 2002
This review is from: Ashanti (Audio CD)
Ashanti Douglas was a star even before anyone had heard any of her solo material, with r'n'b hits "whats luv" and "always on time" alongside Fat Joe and Ja Rule respectively. "Foolish" was the single with which the mainstream truly embraced her, and it isn't hard to see why. The song shows off her chilled-out voice and has a funky beat. Other highlights are "happy", "leaving", "scared", "rescue" and "dreams". While one must admit that two or three of the tracks featured ("voodoo",""movies") are hardly outstanding, you never really want to skip the track. Other reviewers have claimed that Ashantui's voice is yet to develop but personally I think it's beautiful as it is, but one thing that came across to me was that in places Irv Gotti(executive producer) appears quite inexperienced producing tracks for and r'n'b starlet such as Ashanti. The skits here, especially "shi shi" are sweet, funny and charming, which is really the same feeling the listener gets for Ashanti by the end of the album. While not up to the classic status of "the miseducation on lauryn hill" and "miss e...so addictive", "Ashanti" will certainly establish the princess of Murder Inc as one of today's biggest female vocalists. It won't go down in history but by album two I suspect that she(and irv gotti) will be up to the challenge. Despite this, Ashanti has an album of r'n'b greatness here, one of the albums of 2002, so I can only recommend you buy it as soon as possible.
