4.0 out of 5 stars America Got X Idol Talent?, 13 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Coming Back to You (Audio CD)
Despite the talent show launch; I was ignorant of this when I checked out this album and in a way I am glad I was.I had no pre-conceptions about this fine album, which means I can judge it for the slice of entertainmet it is.Reading the other low scoring and also vague reviews I find it quite sad that 'fans' from the show condemn an artist for trying to assert her artistic integrity into what she is doing.Clearly homage is paid to some great blues music (Dust My Broomand) and also southern soul (Id I'm Not In Love With You) on this album,which,I suspect, is what the manufactured RnB/pop audience is struggling to grasp.This is a shame because we have here an album of RnB music that mixes new with old in an admirable fashion.The best tracks in my opmnion are 'Wonderful' and the great retro jazz ballad 'I'll Never Stop Lovin You'. This is a stab at a mainly soul album marketed towards the RnB fans who really don't appreciate it.If you like gospel influenced soul with a bit of a bluesy feel than I suggest you give this a listen.To say this is a collection of ordinary or mediocre tracks is inaccurate and, if I may say so, a bit ignorant about what constitutes good music(I do appreciate that this matter will always be subjective).Listen without predjudice,you may be pleasantly suprised!
