5.0 out of 5 stars Goapele- Break of Dawn October 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I saw Goapele last night at BB King's in NYC and she was amazing. Hush is my favorite new song I heard last night. I can barely put into words how wonderful her voice and energy was last night. You need beautiful music-you need Break of Dawn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album! October 26, 2011
By Jo El
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was worried when I saw there were only 9 tracks, 2 of which I'd already heard. For better or worse, this leaves very little margin for error, but Goapele pulled it off! Each track is meticulously laid out and executed to perfection. I can't wait to see her perform these new songs live.

If you like India Arie, Jill Scott, John legend and other neo-soul artist you will love her sound. And the album only contains very strong tracks.

Missed her in NY, but it would be fun to catch her in a small club before she graduates to bigger venues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Break of Dawn - 4.5 stars November 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a Goapele fan since her debut - love her voice and the lyrics of her music. This collection is very short, clocking in at about 40 minutes and of the 9 tracks, I dislike 1 and think another is just ok. This is certainly her most accessible collection and with a little radio play I'm sure she'd attract new fans but radio being what it is hopefully word of mouth can help.

The tracks I really like & have on repeat:

HUSH - a beautiful lullaby for her child
PLAY - sexy lyrics, slinky production
BREAK OF DAWN - catchy uptempo track
TEARS ON MY PILLOW - gorgeous production, love the organ playing in the background
UNDERTOW - not quite slow enough to be classified a ballad but really plaintive lyrics about having love for someone you know is bad for you but getting caught in the "undertow"
MONEY - the use of distorted vocals & the lyrics about money not being as important as real love make this an interesting track
MILK & HONEY - another mid-tempo gem

The ok track: PIECES - while pretty, I just haven't connected with this one yet

The track I dislike: RIGHT HERE - there is too much going on production wise and it drowns out Goapele's voice

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of all her albums (to me) November 4, 2011
By yjmice
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is my first time ever posting on Amazon, but I had to give a shout out to this album. I've listen to her past albums with only a few songs that I actually like, but this album is my all time favorite of hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goapele - Break of Dawn April 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
One of the most under appreciated artists of our time. Play makes you want to do just that funky erotic, love it. tears on my Pillow - girl I been there, gets me every time. Get this album period point blank. Awesome if I didn't by it already when it came out back in October I would definitely be getting it now. the samples don't do it justice! Get this now!

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING December 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a little concerned because there are only 9 tracks on this CD but Goapele does an outstanding job with each track. My absolute favorite is track 3 Undertow. I highly recommend this CD as you will find quality music that showcases her talen and not over production that distracts from the quality of each song. Goapele is an artist that everyone should hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Every Track December 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of her best albums yet. A great buy if you're a fan of neo-soul, R&B or just great music in general. I played this album at a party and everyone added this to their wish list. Soulful, rich, and engaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique voice
I heard Closer in an aqua zumba class. It was always played near the end of the class, the cool down/relaxing part. Beautiful song. Had to have the album. Was not disappointed.
