I listened to this album for the first time yesterday and for a debut, it's not bad. The Roots provide live instrumentation with appearances by Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter and Bilal. As we have seen on Jay Z's Unplugged and in those infamous Coke commercials, Ms. Wright's voice is full of power & range. I heard so many comments about this joint which prompted me to check it out for myself. She definitely has a soulful/smooth flow and an "in yo face" delivery.
Why the 3-star rating? I have to say the cursing peppered throughout the lyrics and even track names raised eyebrows, not to mention the "endearing" liner notes. I know folks are trying to "keep it real" and things but do we really want to know how much she hates her in-laws and family members? or how she hopes her brother rots in hell because he is "nasty to the core"? I was reading that negativity and shaking my head. And true to form, it came out in her music. One song she is calling someone a ... threatening to beat her down and the constant usage of [profanity] is not cool at all. These factors are going to keep her music off the radio for fear of offending the wrong people. This is definitely not an album you can play at work or around your kids, lest you get the "clean" version. (curiousity got me)
I'm not trying to bash Ms. Wright and maybe with a few more listen throughs I'll change my mind but for now I'd have to say D, D & D is not what I expected. Also, the lengths of the tracks are so short! Once you start getting into a song ("Stay" for example) the fade out came. A two and a half minute song? That's an appetizer. Not a meal. She does a remake of "Love Need and Want You" which is nice, but again, the fade out comes just as your getting into her adlibs.

I had heard of Mrs. Wright prior to her appearance on Jay's MTV Unplugged recording, and so i was pleased to be able to actually see and hear her courtesy of that recording.
I just got my cd today, and I can say that after listening to it i'm really happy i bought this! The music is great and there is a nice flow to the album. As the Amazon.com reviewer noted, Jaguar Wright can SANG! and she delivers all of her vocals with energy and verve. Unlike the reviewer, however, I think that she doesn't need more energy and doesn't "fail" to deliver vocally. An album of ALL passionate wailing would get monotonous, and what we get instead is variety. Like Jill Scott, her lyrics let you know that she's got smarts, mad flavor and is sometimes ghetto but not gutter (and there is a difference).
Its not often that i can listen to a cd on the first time through and just let it flow and not feel like i need to skip to the next track because a song rubs me the wrong way. When a cd is great the first time through, you know that you've made a good investment, and i feel great about sending some love her way by paying my money (as Jaguar herself puts it in the liner notes).
The first 5 songs on the album are my favorites thus far and make the album a good investment for me. Tracks 6 and 7 are my next favorites. Track #1 "the what if's" is a very funky slow-to-mid tempo cut with sultry vocals by Jaguar, and #2 "country song" picks up the pace and has a nice guitar riff that carries you through the song. There are layers of vocals in this track that are very nice ear candy. Track #3 "Stay," is a fast tempo but smooth flowing track, very nice bass line driving it and more luscious vocals ... Then there is track #4 -- a very good cover of a soul classic "love need and want you" (P Labelle).

Like all the other reviewers, I think the album would be a lot tighter if she didn't curse so much. It takes away from the quality of the album. One reviewer says that it's a double standard issue, but it's not. I think that this kind of language is trashy and uneccesary regardless of who does it. R. Kelly, D'Angelo, Avant, Montell Jordan, Jaguar (not Jaquar) Wright, whoever.....it's ignorant no matter who does it. They all have dirty mouths. She can talk like the people where she comes from all she wants, but if she's trying to sell her album to other people, then she needs to use a little tact. Not everyone speaks like that. Some of us have the vocabulary to say what's on our minds. It's a good album that should've been great. And though all the swearing wasn't the only reason for her commercial failure, it was definitley one of the most noticable ones.

This CD could've bigger and better than what it was for many reasons, but the two biggest reasons that stand out to me are:

1) The lack of promotion this album got. Me finding this at Best Buy was a complete accident. I didn't even know it was out. I think more of a buzz would've got this album the recognition it deserves.

2) The excessive cursing. She swears more than Andrew Dice Clay.

Remember back when singers actually had to know how to sing? Jaguar Wright is one of those singers....a throwback if you will. As far as her voice goes, I'd even dare to say that it's right up there with (and very similar to) the voice of the great Stephanie Mills. But her foul mouth will prevent her from ever reaching the same status as Ms. Mills. I first heard her sing on a coca cola commercial (like the other reviewers), and I too was blown away. That doesn't happen often. So after that commercial, I waited patiently for her album to come out. I can remember ONE commercial that wasn't a coca cola commercial. After that, nothing. I never saw her video for the awesome "The What If's" until AFTER I'd already bought the album. Her lack of promotion borders on criminal.

Upon first listen to this CD I thought it was great. I didn't even mind the swearing she does on "The What If's", it actually fit there. But where she falls flat is on tracks like "Same Sh*t, Different Day" Pts 1 & 2 and "Ain't Nobody Playin'". Both songs have awesome potential, but it's as if she's just cursing for the sake of cursing. Honestly, that's my ONLY complaint about this album. There really isn't anything else that's bad about this album. When she leaves the gutter speak alone, she produces some powerful stuff.
