Great soul, funk, reggae and rap.
on 4 November 2012
For an artist who has released only 3 full length CDs including this one, her discography may appear a bit confusing. Her first full length CD (preceded by a 3 track EP "The Uncomfortable Truth") is "Victim of Truth", and came out in 2005 (not 2008 as on Amazon). Her second "No Longer At Ease" came out in 2008. This one, "Soul is Heavy" is her 2012 release. This straightforward career is confused by a greatest hits CD, "Concrete Jungle", taken from her first two CDs, and presumably intended to launch her career beyond Germany to the USA, and a re-issue of her first two CDs in a boxed set along with a third CD of outtakes and live tracks etc., both the latter disk and the whole set entitled "To And Fro". All remaining items in her name are either maxi singles, or other artists with different surnames. As for quality, well, I've been listening to a lot of soul and funk lately, and this one, with a hefty dose of reggae and rap mixed in, is the cream of the crop, with her soulful, passionate voice winning every number hands down, and songwriting catchy enough to keep you coming back for more for a very long time. I don't think I will ever get tired of listening to her, long after others have gone to the back of the cupboard.
