Rick James Dominated the funk in the 80's and he pretty much single handly kept the Funk Alive back in the day. he has never gotten his due because others stole his Concepts and Ideas. well on this Album Rick played a whole different hand and it works. Rick already did Funk, R&B,Blues, Jazz, Pop,Rap and everything else in between. He is a Underrated Smooth Singer. Rick has some of the tightest slow Jams Ever. the Man was a Musical Genius. He understood style. the title track along with 'Taste" are on point."Sapphire" is a Great tribute Song to Black Women. Rick was a strong Poet and never afraid to show his emotions. you ain't gonna catch Rick James having to Perform behind a Sheet on National Tv or something. he was striaght to the Point and direct. He should Win more Grammys and be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was One of a Kind and he left a lasting impact. he was Soulful. He was a Strong Soul Brother who understood changing the game up. His game got stolen,but Rick this time went into a whole different direction and it works. RIP to Brother Rick James. the Genius Lives on.

I know some of you will beg to differ but I am the BIGGEST RICK JAMES fan ever! I never missed a concert and bought every album that he released. I waited for 2 1/2 long years for this album to be released and when it finally was I was no where near disapointed. A lot of folk want to harp on his legal troubles and the deamons in his life but push that crap aside and listen to the genius that was Rick James. From "COME GET IT" to "URBAN RAPSODY", the funk was alive and kickin. His voice was one of the best in music. We have all heard the classics (YOU AND I, MARY JANE, BUSTIN OUT, FIRE IT UP, GIVE IT TO ME BABY, SUPERFREAK etc), but take the time to listen to Rick's ballads and I'm not just talking about "FIRE & DESIRE" and "EBONY EYES". One listen to "JEFFERSON BALL" from the Bustin Out album or "MY LOVE" from the "THROWIN DOWN" album and you too should be convinced that his voice was superior to most. This new album "DEEPER STILL" will go down as a classic. After all the drama in his life, "DEEPER STILL" represents RICK JAMES THE ADULT. The title track is tearing adult radio down and shows that the funk in him still lives...it never died. His remake of "GUINNEVERE" is simply beautiful. The groovy "STOP IT" is straight riding music and could possibly be the next single from this album. "DO YOU WANNA PLAY" with JOHNNY GILL and HOWARD HEWITT is a stone cold blue lights in the basement joint and Rick more than holds his own with two of R&B's greatest voices ever. "SAPPHIRE" is his ode to the black woman (i.e. EBONY EYES). It's a beautiful song (BLOW DANNY)! This album will not disappoint. From the funk of "NOT ALONE" and "STROKE" (about his trying times) to the smoothness of "Maybe" Rick was headed back to the top of the charts with this one. PICK IT UP...you will totally love it.Read more ›

I recently purchased the late legendary Rick James new cd, "Deeper Still", and let me tell you that this is without a doubt his best work since his glory days of pinning classic albums like 1981's "Street Songs", 1983's "Cold Blooded", 1982's "Throwin' Down, and 1978's "Come Get It". I know that some fans were probably turned off by Rick's embarrassing performance months before his untimely death on the BET Awards where he attempted to sing his classic duet "Fire and Desire" with R&B ivory queen and also legendary Teena Marie, I definitely was. But being one of Rick James biggest fans, I decided to give his new cd a chance anyway. On this instant classic, tracks like "Deeper Still", "Stop It", "Taste", "Not Alone" and the love ballad "Do You Wanna Play", are all Slick Rick at his very best. It's unlikely that it will go platinum, because today's younger generation does not identify with an oldschool legend like Rick James. But anyone who loved Rick in his prime will undoubtedly enjoy "Deeper Still". Check it out, you won't be dissappointed!!!

DEEPER STILL is Rick James at his romantic best. The title track and "Stop It" simmer with funk and salsa, while the funky "Taste" and "Stroke" cleverly blend in details from his troubled 1990's run-ins with the law. The biggest surprises here are Mr. James' soulful reading of Crosby, Stills and Nash's "Guinnevere" and "Sapphire", a heartfelt tribute to strong black women. And of course Rick's sexy side comes through on "Do You Wanna Play" and "Funk With Me". Musicianship is top-notch throughout, especially on the hopeful ballad "Maybe". The best part about DEEPER STILL is that the whole album is 52 minutes, a great length for an album that doesn't overstay its welcome.

I would give 5 stars to Rick Jame's latest CD for how much I have played it and loved it since I purchased it last week! In honor of Rick - I appreciate the fact that the record producer pushed to have this CD released! My fave song is "Stop It.." I hear it in my head constantly. I also enjoyed "Deeper Still" and "Taste". "Do you Wanna Play?" with Howard Hewitt was quite simply a classic Rick ballad. He had (and always will) have a unique voice; you always knew it was Rick. I have been a fan of Rick's since he and the Stone City Band first toured in Oakland - even checked out Prince as the "opening act for Rick". He was "the Man" back in the day and will be missed always...

Rick James was a musical genious and definitely the "King of Funk"!!If you are a true Rick James fan (and loved his vocals and ballads), pick up this CD! If you miss the old Rick with the upbeat, fast-paced songs, this CD isn't for you. It is for the true Rick James fans that saw "Deeper Still" into who Rick was, a soulful balladeer....

Enjoy!
