definitely one to listen to ... a rising star,
This review is from: Ashanti (Audio CD)
Brilliant first album by a rising star. She writes her own lyrics and sings them like she owns them. Foolish and Rescue are definitely the best tracks on the album, they stand out, are unique and well produced.
Her voice still sounds quite young, unlike people like Alicia Keys - who seems to have reached her vocal peak and belts out tunes full force, and very emotively.
Ashanti seems to hold back on the rest of the tracks & loses stars on that. Maybe she wasn't really "feeling" them. But having said that, there is alot of room for development.
Her voice has a smoothness and a sensuality to it but she needs to put in a bit more energy and emotion. I would still recommend you get it and look forward to what she has to offer next.
