Editorial Reviews

Debut self-titled album. A mixture of strong, uptempo R&B with pop hooks and a healthy dose of Hip Hop beats, but it is their lyrics which make them unique. Their subject matters are a far cry from R&B's usual 'bump n grind' and 'luv U down' lines instead dealing with real issues that face the youth growing up in inner-cities. Includes 3 tracks not on USA version:'Do The Right Thing','It Ain't The Same' & the cd-rom video of 'What Would You Do'.

City High has become one of my favorite CD's lately and I think we are looking at an EXTEMELEY talented group! This CD brings back "true" music. This is my scale of 1-10 on every song:
1. Didn't Ya- 9.0 Great Chorus
2. 3-Way- 9.5 Catchy Tune, one of my favs!
3. Why- 8.5 A pretty good song, 8.5 is not bad
4. Song For You- 8.0 A good song, but not on my favs list
5. 15 Will Get You 20- 9.5 An awesome chorus
6. Cats and Dogs- 9.0 Another great chorus from City High
7. Caramel- 9.0 A very good song with great vocals
8. Best Friends- 9.5 A song with meaning, tracks 8,9, and 10 are the 3 best
9. Sista- 9.5 This great song kinds makes you think...
10. What Would You Do- 10.0 This All-Around GREAT song gets a perfect score from me
11. So Many Things- 9.0 A catchy song that keeps City High great
12. The Only One I Trust- 9.0 A very moving song
13. CIty High Anthem- 9.5 Catchy, catchy, catchy, anyone who has heard it, its all true
14. You Don't Know Me- 8.0 Just doesn't catch on with me

There are so many reasons City High is the best... They're the next Fugees- after all, Wyclef Jean is one of they're executive producers! They're Cd, though, shows that they're talented too! 1. Didn't Ya- I really like this song. Claudette sounds like Janet Jackson in it. 2. Three Way- This song is kewl too! It has great rhythm and beat, and the vocals are fab! 3. Why- kewl beginning to the song! Its kinda slow, but I luv this song to. The chorus is absolutely beautiful. 4. Song For You- I luv how they say "Let's Reminisce, Ya'll" in the background (and the background music too). Yet again, you hear Ryans beautiful voice! 5. 15 Will Get You 20- You hear more of Claudette in this song. Actually, you hear the whole group! They make a great trio! 6. Cats and Dogs- Claudette raps!! And so do the boys! That is so cool!! The Chorus is really good too. I love this song! 7. Caramel- This is my friends personal favorite. I like it too, but not as much as her. Claudette sings in this too! The chorus yet again is catchy and cool. 8. Best Friends- this is one of my personal favorites. The song is very touching, kinda sad, but totally beautiful! 9. Sista- Great beat! Great Lyrics! Great vocals! 'nuff said!! 10. What Would You Do- Im guessing if you are reading this you've already heard the song. It was their first hit single! Great song though, I heard it once and went out and bought the single. 11. So Many Things- great song to slow dance to. 12. The Only One I Trust- I don't hate this song, but its not one of my fave. Its pretty good though. 13. City High Anthem- Not at all like the Ruff Ryders Anthem, but its still great! 14. You Dont Know Me- Good message in this song, I think we all can relate. All in all, this cd is the best!! Its seriously for everyone! So help this new band out- buy their cd!! And trust me, you will not be disappointed!

City High is the first group to debut off J records after olivia made the way. Is this new group worth checking out?? Just from the first single alone I knew this would be worth listening to. I knew it was different just from the chorus "what would you do if your son was at home lying all alone on the bathroom floor and he's hungry, and the way to feed him is to sleep with a man fo ra little bit of money". Sounnded liek something one of thier friends went through. This cd is probably one of the best R+B/Hip cds to drop form a group in a while. The first thing you see with city high is they have the same formula their mentor "wyclef" had in his former group Fugees with 2 guys and a girl. This formula never goes wrong except this time around everyone comes strong and doesnt let the talents of one overshadow everyone else. First I'll let everyone know that all these joints were produced and written completly by all members of the group. I give 2 stars just for that alone. Now for the tracks, ...whats good?
(1/5(worst) - 5/5(best))
1-This is about a cheating lover. The beat is tight...one of my favorite on the cd. Claudette reminds me of beyonce at certain times but has a style all her own...really makes this track. (4/5)
2- This is about being in a love triangle(not what u was thinking..LOl). This is a funky track that plays like a story. they all sound good on this track. (3/5)
3-This is a slow to midtempo song with a tight beat about a love gone wrong. (4/5)
4- This is a latin/hip-hop track where robby lets u see how much he can blow. This song is dedicated to someone he loved or liekd a lot(I think). Tight track. (3.5/5)
5- This song is one of the deepest on the album. It talks about how a 15 year old can get you 20 years in jail.

I bought this cd for the song "What Would You Do", of course. Turns out it's one of the few cds that I love every song(the only other cds=Janet Jackson and TLC). One of my favourites in my collection. Nice r'n'b with a hip-hop touch. Some of the songs are thought-provoking, not preachy, like "What Would U Do" and "City HIgh Anthem". City High Anthem actually is my favourite track, seems to me like Rhythm Nation1814(my favourite cd) summed up: "What happened to all those Issac Hayes/the Curtis Mayfields/the Marvin Gayes", "We Don't Need Your Education/We Don't Want NO Past Advice/We Are The Leaders Of Your Nation/We're gonna maek sure the world survives/there's no justice, there's just us/what happened to the meaning in God we trust?/so as we grow older and our children grow up/ we ain't gonna teach them what y'all showed us". The cd's real life, not that sugar-coated, sappy, sweet-but-not-so-innocent Britney Spears. My favourite tracks, even though I love all of them, are Didn't Ya, Three Way, Why, 15 Will Get You 20, Cats And Dogs, Caramel, Sista, What Would Ya Do, City High Anthem, and YOu don't know Me. Basically all the songs. Caramel sounds good for the next single, and it shows more Claudette. For any TLC or Sisqo fan.
