Editorial Reviews

Product Description

MACY exploded onto the music scene with her incredibly successful debut album, 'On How Life Is.' Her single 'I Try' landed her a Grammy for Best New Artist and the albu went on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide.Macy has partnered with Will.I.Am to create what she calls her favorite CD yet, BIG. She joins platinum selling artist Fergie, becoming the second release on the will.i.am Music Group label. CD has guest appearances from Natalie Cole, will.i.am, Fergie and Nas.

Amazon.com

For a while there, the helium-voiced Macy Gray seemed to be coasting instead of crashing down the walls between funk, rock, and R&B the way scads of breathless music pundits once said she would. That was before will.i.am and a handful of other skillful knob-twisters entered her life. Now, multi-genre destruction and utter domination once again seem possible: Big, as its title suggests, is a huge record--bold in all the right places and subdued where it needs to be; scruffy around the edges but slick below the surface; at once nonchalant and reckless to the bone. Gray, in her way, is a vocal Timbaland--it's tempting to think she's too imposing to make a random-seeming hook-up work, but she stretches her singular gift around pretty much any collaborator a producer can throw at her, and with style to burn. On Big, those tossed on for the challenge include Natalie Cole, who lights up opener "Finally Made Me Happy"; Nas, who gives up the grit likably on "Ghetto Love"; and Fergie, who coos efficiently throughout "Glad You're Here." As vibes go, the one given off here is cool, casual, and slightly crazy--all Macy, in other words. She does her thing up right, and she does it Big. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

This album is one of those albums you can pop in your cd and dont even have to hit Skip.
Will_From_Florida
"Finally made me happy", "Shoo be doo", "One for me" "What i gotta do" and "Strange behavior" are really my favorites at this point.
Devine Brown
They generally have upbeat themes that are inspiring and make you feel good when you listen to them.

This is Macy's first album since 2003's "The Trouble With Being Myself", the release of a greatest hits compilation, and the supposed demise of her career. The collaborations with producer will.i.am may not be that different from her previous releases, but for Macy fans, more of the same is a good thing.

BIG consists of 12 new songs. Disc packaged in clear jewel case; total running time: 43:54. Booklet includes song lyrics, song credits, and several "Technicolor" photos of Macy (her Thanks includes a statement of support for Barack Obama).

Her "collaborations" are similar to those on "The id" - Natalie Cole and Fergie do little more than sing backing vocals; wil.i.am performs a short rap. I must admit the songs Justin Timberlake co-wrote and co-produced (4, 10) are some of the stronger tracks. The reported/rumored rap by Nas is not on "Ghetto Love".

Interestingly, the songwriting credits are given to Natalie Hinds - the civilian name of singer Macy Gray. The album packaging does not indicate "explicit lyrics" and listening to the album reveals no presence of anything truly explicit. Oddly, the printed lyrics include so-called profanity not heard on the disc.

This is a must-have for those of us who appreciate Macy's voice, enjoy Macy's music, and just dig Macy.

I have to say that one thing that bothers me about the user reviews I'm seeing online is a complete lack of understanding of the history of Macy's music. I read one review where the user complained about The Id and The Trouble with Being Myself as being copies of each other, while inferior to On How Life Is.

There is one string of common truth throughout these reviews in that there are similarities between albums - but those conclusions are based on superficial observations.

If you deconstruct all of the albums, there are several long-running parallels - one of the major reasons that I'm so pleased with all of the albums. This is not a process of carbon copying - this is a process of creating and sustaining artistic motifs that are very unique and creative. These motifs comprise the qualities that distinguish Macy Gray from ALL of her contemporaries.

We have appearances of song types that become her motifs... for example, we have I've Committed Murder, Gimme all Your Lovin or I Will Kill You, My Fondest Childhood Memories, and Strange Behavior appearing on the four albums respectively. People - this is a motif - this is a consistent delivery from Macy to her listeners. This motif of killing folks as extreme acts of love and/or desperation is a comedic element - it's funny. It's not supposed to be taken literally (as was a critique from one reader on Strange Behavior).

We also have other such motifs as I Can't Wait to Meetchu, My Nutmeg Fantasy, Every Now and Then, and Everybody - across the four albums respectively. Listen to the songs... they all appeal to that same universal "I can jam to this" feeling. They generally have upbeat themes that are inspiring and make you feel good when you listen to them.

I'm excited about this CD! Macy has outdone herself!! I am happy to say that it is FILLED with great music. The songs are beautifully done...creative, unique, relatable, and thought provoking . Macy is Macy at her best. There are a few songs that made me laugh out loud, like "Treat Me Like Your Money" (I wish I had thought of that)...and "Strange Behavior", which is in classic Macy Gray style. I have 8 strong favorites on this CD; you can just put this CD on 'repeat' and let it go...There are a few songs that will be placed on the Female Anthem List, like "Finally Made Me Happy", "Shoo Be Doo", and "Okay"...I've been a Macy Gray fan for a while, and I feel this CD will have me saying "See, I told you, she's great" to a lot of people who didn't get her music before now ...Please, pick this one up...you won't be disappointed.

In my humble opinion, the first five songs and the ninth song on this CD have the potential to become classics. ! (That is, if radio weren't in the dire--recycled, bubble gum music--state that it is in...). These tracks are absolutely fabulous! The only reason that I didn't give the CD the full five stars is that the remaining songs are a bit bizarre to me. Perhaps they'll grow on me. But the tracks that are good put this CD on top and make it well worth your buy. And the duet with Natalie Cole is a pure treat. Trust me, this CD will NOT disappoint. Macy IS back!

This album is one of those albums you can pop in your cd and dont even have to hit Skip. I love how her personality comes out in this album. All the songs are completely different but they all seem to have one comon thread which is they all fit righ in with the album. No songs felt out of place. No adays it very very hard to fine a great produced album. Its rare. Its as rare as finding a white lion. I loved that some of the songs was witty. I loved that they all was artistic but they still had a theme not like some songs that dont have any themes that just ramble about things like putting a paraphrase about chicking soup with your dead dog dying. It doesn't make sense but all the songs had a theme and developed those themes quite well. I didn't really expect this album to be this great. Some albums take a long time to grow on you but for me this album grew on my right away i didn't have to listen to it like a 1000 times for it to grow on me. This is what great music is all about.
