Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

T-Pain opens the liner notes to his hotly anticipated second disc with a couple of helpful definitions: An epiphany is "the manifestation of a supernatural being" (definition No. 1) or "a sudden moment of insight or revelation" (No. 2), the opening page puts forth. Because most of the R&B record-buying world knows that T-Pain is not a supernatural being, but a stylish and inventive singer from Tallahassee, it would seem the second definition inspired the title--T-Pain probably felt flashes of inspiration when laying out the lyrics. A single spin ought to convince listeners a little of both factored in, though: Songs like "Bartender" and "Buy U a Drank" send out a southern hip-hop vibe silky enough to be considered a revelation (thanks partially to Akon, who pitches in on "Bartender"). And because the entire album leans hard on the vocoder, tracks such as opener "Tallahassee Love," a nod to Tupac's "California Love," sound otherworldly, a la definition one. Throughout, T-Pain hands out hooks like there's been a two-for-one sale. Maybe they came to him in a series of epiphanies. Or maybe a benevolent R&B being--some supernatural force who knows how to make a hit record--whispered them in his ear. --Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

The Tallahassee rapper-turned-singer's second album features guest appearances by his mentor, Akon, as well as Yung Joc, who accompanies T-Pain on the album's first single, the stripped-down, seductive "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')."

1.0 out of 5 stars Lowering The Bar August 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As if the bar hasnt been set low enough in the last few years of pop music TPain with songs like Im in love wit a stripper and Buy you a drank, has actually made the bar lower. I thought that would be impossible with acts like the Ying Yang Twins and numerous other hip hop acts already circulating but no, T has done it. In short, the dumbest most worthless music ever to grace the airwaves and otherwise. HIP HOP IS DEAD!

3.0 out of 5 stars While not the drink coaster I expected it to be... October 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was never too impressed by T-Pain because I felt he only made average songs, and his use of the vocoder was so forced that it seemed like he was trying a little too hard to emulate the late Roger Troutman (a notion later confirmed on THIS album with the intro, "Tallahassee Love", which bears more than a striking similarity to Tupac's "California Love"). And now here comes Epiphany, which is supposed to be a more mature album than Rappa Ternt Sanga. But is it?

Well, I never heard his first album, so I can't really compare, but one thing that surprises me is that T really can sing when he wants to (see the final track, "Sounds Bad"). But songs like "Church" and "Put It Down" made me decide that it was good that he stopped rapping; and another thing, I don't know if there are really guest rappers in these songs or if it's just T himself rapping in different voices. And the obligatory reggae crossover "Shottas" (with Kardinal Offishall and Cham) is really just a whole bunch of noise.

For the most part, there isn't a lot of variety on this album. T usually talks about either getting drunk or having sex -- actually, most of the time he talks about a little bit of both, like in "Buy U a Drank" and the filler track "Tipsy". What's more, a lot of the songs aren't very memorable, like "Yo Stomach", "69", or the badly produced "Backseat Action" (but T-Pain and Shawnna didn't sound like a winning combination anyway).

Even when T tries to change the subject, he still has problems. "Suicide" details life after finding out that his girl infected him with HIV, but as another reviewer said, that song could have been written a little better. And "Time Machine" is just retarded. In short, this is the kind of album that you should maybe listen to in the store rather than purchase (or don't stores allow that any more?) because Epiphany really isn't much of one.

So I joined the bandwagon and bought EPIPHANY. Why you ask? Well my friends, "Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')" was bumping and it was one of the most undeniably catchy (as well as stupid) songs of 2007. I couldn't resist. I'm not a big fan of "clubby" R&B albums, but sometimes i give into guilty pleasures. In some respects with EPIPHANY (which I have to agree with one of the reviewers that this is no "epiphany" by any means), I wish I'd let the album itself pass by and just downloaded "Buy U A Drank". But I had to indulge and I can't help to say that ultimately EPIPHANY is a disappointment. Then, you also have to think mentally, that with such club-savvy artist as T-Pain, Akon, and sometimes R. Kelly (though excluding nis great new album DOUBLE UP), that the club-centric albums only tend to have one hit. Sure, EPIPHANY is good for a couple of worthy numbers (first single and "Church" to name a few), but overall, it is nothing but a mess. Sure, I'm happy T-Pain surprised everybody to take the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, hold back both Rihanna and expected chart-topper Paul McCartney, but still you wonder if people were expecting a real "epiphany" for the money. Oh well.

The album begins with the introductory track, "Tallahassee Love" in which T-Pain not only defines "epiphany" but also gives love back to his hometown, Tallahassee. It is completely unnecessary, as with most intro tracks, but it is actually better than some of the full length tracks on EPIPHANY. "Church" has the most undeniably catchy groove of EPIPHANY with an incredibly soulful guitar riff, tropical sounding drum-programming, and random interspersed "rah!" during the verse. Vocally, T-Pain sounds top notch, even if he is halfway between singing and rapping.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'll take a drink over this album anyday! June 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I only bought this album for the hit single Buy you a drink. And its funny because thats the only jammin' song on there ! Thank God I bought it bootleg for 3 bucks because its not worth the retail price!( Yeah Yeah I know alot of people may look down on others that buy or sell bootleg copies of cd's but hey if the artist only drops one hot single and nothing else what can you expect! Im sure as hell not gonna chance all my money for a cd that dont jam!)

1.0 out of 5 stars No Epiphany At All June 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It's said that T-Pain (Faheem Najm) recorded a personal take one of Akon's songs and when Akon heard it, he immediatly signed him to his Konvict label. T-Pain's debut album "Rappa Ternt Sanga" he managed to get 2 top 10 hits with "I'm Sprung" and "I'm N Luv (Wit A Stripper)" with Mike Jones. His topics are neither very deep or multiple. Basically he dealt with sex and clubbing on most of the songs and apart from these 2 hits, the rest of the album wasn't that special. But T-Pain appeared on countless of other artists albums, mostly singing hooks and he suddenly became a in-demand artist in the R&B world. T-Pain is mostly a R&B singer but he's occasionally a rapper aswell kind of like Akon, but T-Pain uses a vocoder to generate his voice, kind of like Roger Troutman did in the 80's with Zapp and what Cher did on her megahit "Believe". Unfortunately T-Pain overuses this tecnique to the point that it gets redundant and un-natural and it makes you wonder wether he would be as fascinating without?. I'll see wether his sophmore album offers more then his debut.

His sophmore album is tited "Epiphany" but I don't know why cause there isn't anything religious or serious by this album at all. It seems like it follows the formula of his debut in detail. Just like his debut album it also got 2 hit singles, mainly the overplayed "Buy U a Drank" with Young Joc reaching #1 that a club song that deals with getting tipsy and hooking up with ladies. The other song is called "Bartender" (with Akon) and is almost "I'm N Luv (Wit A Stripper)" Part 2 but ex-changing the Stripper for Bartender. Both are decent club songs but with nonsense lyrics but I doubt most people care aslong as they're catchy. After that the album is flooded with mediocracy. Another song about drinking called "Tipsy".

Buy you a drink ........ This cd is great!!!!!!!!!!
I have to agree, and I don't like 95 percent of the stuff on the radio today. T-Pain is a very talented composer and arranger who has a real gift and understands music. It's evident that he knows alot about musical notes and song composition on a level deeper than some guy who just picked it up... Read More

Wow, I Didn't Know This Guy Was a Musician
Wow, strictly based on your opinion, I might get this cd. I don't really like T-Pain either and thought he was just a gimmick, but if what you say is true, he sounds like he actually has some talent.

this cd sucks!!!!
This CD is ABSOLUTELY WACK! You need a drink to get through this non-sense. T-Pain needs to stick to singing hooks. I won't be purchasing any of his CD's in the future.
