CD Oh How Life Is EPIC, 494423, 10 Track
Macy Gray's debut is the kind of album that lends itself to comparisons: Bill Withers (he of "Lovely Day" fame), for the rapturous, laid-back funk vibe; Lauryn Hill, as a fellow nouveau-soul-diva who's not willing to let something as silly as genre-lines let her stop from appropriating a great sound; Liz Phair, from her Exile in Guyville days, for the stark, honest, everyday take on relationship politics; Lenny Kravitz, for pure iconoclastic self-confidence; and, yes, Billie Holiday for the sheer sound of her voice (youngish, raw, slightly otherworldly, but strangely powerful). One album into her career, it's unfair to ask Lady Gray to live up to most of the above--no matter what the diva in question might have to say about it--so accept On How Life Is on its own terms. Eminently danceable and groovy without a single clunker and though some songs ("Why Didn't You Call Me", "I've Committed Murder" and "Do Something", on which Gray sings "..and I'm the latest craze") are more equal than others, the album is well worth its share of hype. --Randy Silver

Delighted to find this on minidisc, my new dead format of choice (cassettes are so 3 weeks ago, and frankly pretty much unlistenable), so I can enjoy the soundtrack to Y2K pretty much anywhere.
the songs themselves cover a wide range of topics from the everyday letdowns of life to topics such as religion and domestic violence yet never once does this album get morose or depressing the songs "i try" and "still" although dealing with sad subjects both contain a quiet optimism which seeps through the songs and into the listener that says "nothing will ever keep me down" this probably comes from macy's rock solid faith which can be sampled on i cant wait to meet you-the funkiest hymn in history!
if i was forced to pick my favorite from here i'd struggle they are all five star songs but at a push id say it has to be still, or i try, or do something, or-what the hell all of them!
if you dont own this album-why the hell not!

Bought for my twenty one year old daughter. She loves it. She loves to listen and dance and this fulfils those needs.Published on 21 Sept. 2013 by cathy
Classy all the way; a great singer and album (there's an old fashion word). I bought it a few years ago and still enjoy listening to it.Published on 27 Sept. 2012 by M. Seeckts
