Beverley Knight - Prodigal Sista - Cd
Britain hasn't been at a loss in producing promising young female R&B stars in the 1990s--Gabrielle, Eternal, N'Dea Davenport, Shola Ama, Carleen Anderson and Neneh Cherry all spring to mind--but none have really managed to capture the lightning that accompanied their debuts. Like the others mentioned, Beverley Knight finds herself a confident veteran at a young age (just 25 at the release of Prodigal Sista, her second album) but, like maybe only Cherry before her, Knight brings that attitude to her self-assuared dealings with the world at large. Where Cherry uses it to create freedom to devote time to her family, Knight is an outspoken proponent of local talent; her speech at the 1999 awards was, by report, both barbed and impassioned. She's less prickley on Sista, leaving that to guest rapper Redman (on "Made it Back"), preferring to sing about love and heartbreak, fate and inner strength and focusing on the positive. It doesn't always work--the occasional growl would be welcome, in both voice and instrumentation--but Knight's sweet, caressing voice and top-notch (if largely unsurprising) production makes for a handful of must-listens: "Sista, Sista", "Made it Back" (original and remix versions), the funky "Greatest Day" and "That's Alright" amongst them. --Randy Silver

This is album I can never tire of, It's laid back and unlike a lot of albums - it slowy builds track after track to get even better.
This Mobo Winning album was released to rave reviews - just check out the back cover & you will see what I mean.
Beverley Knight has a very special chemistry, in a genre which started & is still dominated by Americans, she can remain sophisticated, while still sounding unmistakedly British through out.
Listen to this album a few times & I guarantee you will hear one of the best - if not best; soul albums of recent years.
this is a SUBLIME piece of work. I can't believe the words bland and disappointing have been usd in other reviews. i would only suggest that those people have a short attention span and weren't willing to let these compositions penetrate. they have penetrated deep within me and every song is a classic. this record was released 10 years ago and i still find myself listening to it start to finish at least once a week.
the lyrical content is phenomenal. using similies and metaphors that are so clever and fitting to each songs message. they aren't used in a tacky way, but in a way that allows the listener to relate and create their own mental images that take you to another place.
"lovers rock describes your groove, rude boy love is heavenly' wehey!!
don't even get me started on the harmonies. they are so layered and genius. she obviously worked so incredibly hard on this whole record.... start to finish and i imagine it was a labour of love.
DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS RECORD
This is by far my favourite album I think because it's the most soulful. If you're looking for the perfect chill out album then you just found it.
Very Sincerely, Beverly Knight's Greatest Fan.

I am an R&B/Soul fan, but this isn't the strongest album i've heard. There are some great tracks: Made it Back '99 (REMIX), Greatest Day '99 (REMIX) & SistaSista. Read morePublished on 8 April 2000
A truly excellent and magical album from Miss Knight. She is a jewel in the crown of soul and an asset to the UK. Who said it was only American's who could produce good r&b? Read morePublished on 3 Mar. 2000
