Customer Review

on 17 June 2005
After three albums on the Bad Boy label, Faith Evans returns with "The First Lady," her debut release on Capitol/EMI. The widow of the Notorious B.I.G., Evans has a bruised and gusty voice that, when armed with the right material, sets her apart from the faceless studio creations that often dominate the airwaves. But as is the case with most divas, Evans is not without her share of personal drama. The lyrics in "Again" are anything but ambiguous: the directly reflect on her recent run-in with the law and prior battle with drugs. "Mesmerized" has a tight groove that recalls James Brown; the Neptunes-produced track "Goin' Out" will find a welcome home in many clubs, and "Until You Came" is a tender slow jam that compliments Faith's voice nicely. Compared to her last three records, the production on "The First Lady" is less trendy and relies a bit more on live instrumentation, but the street sensibility remains. My "faith" has been renewed.
