The platinum-selling Mint Condition continues to make an impact as one of the hottest bands In R&B music. Now the band brings their trademark sound with something a little extra to their exciting new album, E-Life: a rumination on life and love in the Information Age.

I remember when Mint Condition first came out with their unforgettable hit song, "Pretty Brown Eyes." What made that song shine was lead singer Stokley's smooth voice and that great live instrumentation which accompanied him. They would go on to have other hits like "U Send Me Swangin'", "What Kind of Man Would I Be?" and "You Don't Have to Hurt No More." Fast forward to May 6, 2008, and the men of Mint Condition have released new material; an album entitled "E Life." I always go to Amazon to find out who has released new music for the week, and when I discovered that these fellers had a new album, I had to purchase it because I recognize true talent when I see it.

"E Life" is a good album, but lacks consistency. Stokley's voice is still good and he makes sure he gives us enough doses of his likable upper register, but some of the tracks on this album are boring and forgettable. However, there are several songs on here with replay value. The ultimate highlight and easily the most memorable moment on this album is "Nothing Left to Say." This song is nothing short of amazing. This mid-tempo is beautiful for it has an outstanding beat, melody and Stokey delivers it well. "Right Here" is another strong moment found on this album. This ballad is classic Mint Condition. It actually brings "Pretty Brown Eyes" to mind for some reason. Perhaps because of the great quality of the song. "Something" and "Back and Forth" are two of the album's missteps. These songs weren't especially easy to get into, and, although not terrible material, it simply falls short. It feels like they were inspired by other bands but not in a good way.

I recommend this album to Mint Condition fans because I'm sure you'll find something which is pleasing to you.

Mikeisha's Top 5

1. "Nothing Left to Say"
2. "Just Can't Believe"
3. "Right Here"
4. "Moan"
5. "Goldigger"

The 2009 Grammy nominations are out, and, not surprisingly, Mint Condition is not among the list of nominees. That is a further indictment against a system that applauds superficiality over style and substance. For Mint Condition is, and has been, one of the best bands in the music industry since it burst out on the scene almost two decades ago.

"E-Life," like its predecessors, features tight musicianship from the band members, thought-provoking lyrics, and the most unique voice in all of music, as embodied in the one-and-only Stokley Williams. His is an instrument that should be the envy of others of equal and lesser talent. He brings life to every song that he leads, making it truly a wonder to hear.

As can be said about most Mint Condition albums, there is no filler. ALL of the tunes are award-worthy, with special recognition going to "Golddigger," "Baby Boy, Baby Girl" (featuring Anthony Hamilton), "Moan," "Nothing Left to Say," "Why Do We Try," and "Somethin'."

Hopefully, the music-buying masses will wise up and "discover" this stellar band. Until that time happens, however, those of us with discriminating tastes will have to be content that we appreciate something really special.

Its great to see the guys out with another release.

E-Life will gain them new fans and still keep the ones they have happy that Mint continues to hit us off with some great music at almost every turn. Mint Condition as a band continues to function as a well tuned machine with each member and their speciality instrument all flowing together to make what is E-Life. Also although Stokley is the lead vocalist another one of the MC members has a turn or two at leads on the cd which is a different turn.

I find myself enjoying E-Life the 2nd time through even more than the first time. My attitudes have changed and i like a couple more songs than the first listen through.

Favorites on E-Life:

Baby Boy, Baby Girl Feat Anthony Hamilton
Something Feat Phonte of Little Brother
Just Can't Believe (it owns without question)
Golddigger
Nothing Left to Say (another excellent ballad from Mint)
Right Here (MC does it again with an excellent ballad)
Why Do We Try Feat Ali Shaheed Muhammad (different feel to it, but i like)
Moan (it's just what the song says, love it)
Queen of Come Here, Go Away (about a woman that is into him then pushes him away later)

E-Life is another well done release from Mint Condition and as a band or anyone who's been listening to music for years. They all know about Mint Condtion "Pretty Brown Eyes", "You Send Me Swingin", "What Kind of Man Would I Be" and so much more. They stand as a statement of a true R&B group/band and i believe this cd and others in the future will be just as a successful as most of the stuff out there now.

5 Star cd from Mint Condition

Mint Condition are the R.E.M. of R&B groups
Well I just picked up the CD and am only half-way through but so far i'm liking. It is a little different (i.e. more mainstream sounding) so far but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I became a fan in 1993 when I heard "From the Mint Factory" and have every disc they've released thus... Read More
