Product Description

Blaque ~ Blaque

Amazon.com

In a spoken interlude midway through their debut album, teen R&B trio Blaque protest comparison to TLC. Never mind that everything from attitude to production on Blaque owes a lot to that zillion-selling act and that the group is a collective protégé of TLC's Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes. Not that there's anything wrong with that; in fact, while hardly earthshaking, the disc is a stylish entry in 1999's soul stakes. Blaque's material isn't always top-drawer, but several cuts make real marks, particularly the single "808" and the '60s-retro-chorused "I Do." --Rickey Wright

I gotta say this is one of the best r&b/pop albums out their today. Each member of Blaque brings a unique sound on every song. Lead vocalist Shamari adds a strong sense of soulfulness on some songs, Brandi adds pure sweetness with her sweet baby breath-like voice, and Natina adds pure hip-hop with her constant rapping and plus, she adds a few laid back vocals on "Mind of a King". As you can see, or hear, Blaque's sensual debut proves they have staying power. Let's go through the tracks:
1.Blaque intro- nice intro, that's all I can say. 5/5
2.Roll With Me- really good song. This should have been the intro instead of track #1. This one has a heavy r&b flavor, so any r&b fanatic will love this song. 5/5
3.I Do- Very nice track with a retro 60's sound in it. Nice rapping done by Natina. 5/5
4.Leny- This one is okay. that's all I can say. 4/5
5.Rainbow Drive- Beautiful and very positive. This one is kinda like a theme for Blaque because of their name and message to the public (Believing in Life and A cheiving a Quest for Unity in Everything). 5/5
6.808- Great song. Penned by R.Kelly (you know it's gonna be good!). 5/5
7.Time After Time- DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS SONG!! It is a wonderful cover version of Cyndi Lauper's song. Blaque's version is a little upbeat, but still beautiful. 6/10
8.Bring it All to Me- Okay people, the best thing about this song is NOT J.C's appearance!!! He does NOT sound good, so quit using that as an excuse to like this song! 7/10 (excluding J.C's performance).
9.Mind of a King- Great performance from Natina! Very laid-back and cool. 7/10
10.Don't Go Looking for Love- Beautiful ballad!!!! Penned by diva Mariah Carey. It sounds like something Mariah would sing herself.

this is a very good CD. I recommend buying it, it is worth the $$, and you'll be glad you bought it. I am giving it 5 stars because each song is great in different ways. It is great to know that Left-Eye of TLC is thier manager, it shows that they will be successful themselves. And I love that duet they do with N Sync, "Bring It All To Me". That's one of the best songs by them. So buy it if you havent already!

When i 1st heard "808" i was really interested in Blaque so when their album was released i got it straight away! Not all the songs are for some people's appetite but this album is a blend of pop and r'n'b - which is a good blend! (well, i think so!) TRACKS
1) Blaque Ivory intro - doesn't last long, maybe trying 2 copy TLC'S "Fanmail" beginning.
2) Roll with me - quite a good start, a real "pump up the volume tune".
3) I do - Great track to dance to, fab chorus. one of my fave's!Good rapping from member Brandi.
4) Leny - maybe......skip this song, a bit depressing if u ask me..........
5) Rainbow drive - really nice summer song, gives u a lift on a bad day!
6) 808 - Complete r'n'b tune, written by R.Kelly (thats when u know its gonna be good!)Good rap by member Brandi. Another fave of mine.
7) Time after time - a cover of Cyndie Lauper's, as they say originals r best but this is a good cover.
8) Bring it all to me - Another fave of mine, a really good track, real r'n'b featuring JC from N'sync who gives it a bit of pop.
9) Mind of a king - I like this, its a bit weird at first and the chorus is 2 but give it a listen, the words r crafted 2gether very well. Not very dancy but u can always tap ur foot 2 it...........
10) Don't go looking for love - written by Mariah Carey, should have been sung by Mariah Carey!Lead singer Shamari hits a few dodgy high notes here......
11) Release me - the music in the background of this reminds me of THE EXORCIST theme (!)good thing, bad thing....dunno also this has lots of heavy breathing and talking in it. Give it a listen. might make u laugh!
12) Right next to me - ok song, maybe skip this!

This is one of my favorite albums, I listen to it all the time. I especially liked the songs "I Do", "Rainbow Drive," "Bring it All to Me", and "When the Last Teardrop Falls." I am SOOO glad that Left-Eye from TLC found this amazing group.

Blaque hit the big time in 1999 with the radio smash second single "Bring It All To Me", featuring a guest vocal from *NSYNC heartthrob JC Chasez. The track is best of infectious R&B pop, and the best of this debut album release. Other singles from the album include "808" and "I Do", both of which did better with quite a bit of reworking. The former was totally redone practically, with the familiar line "She ain't got the boom like I do". The latter was vamped up with a guest rap from the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, who had made the girls her proteges. The cheesy uplifting "Rainbow Drive" is a surpisingly strong cut. The rest of the album is weighted down with dismal slushy ballads. None of them are stand-out, even the cover of Cyndi Lauper's pop classic "Time After Time" is totally stale. Maybe after so many cover versions, the song just can't stand up for yet another reworking. Either way, the album in general is totally bland dissapointment. It's a one listen album IF that. Buy at your own risk.
