Product Description

Amazon.com

It's hard to imagine two more talented hipsters than Floetry singer Marsha Ambrosius and emcee Natalie Stewart, a.k.a. the Songstress and Floacist. The U.K. duo's Floetic debut has it all--smooth R&B, soulful jazz, hip-hop, spoken word, supple ballads and a warmth that cradles the listener from beginning to end. In short, it's exquisitely, decidedly feminine. The pair occasional raise the roof with sizzling rhymes and beats, but they clearly place a premium on vibe, evident in Floetic's mostly chilled, after-dark feel. Jill Scott and Michael Jackson have already benefited from Floetry's deft songwriting; Jacko covered Floetry's "Butterflies" on his Invincible disc. A demo version of that song is included here, but that's the least of the bounty. "Hello" is pure honey with the women's silky voices braided in harmony while the dreamy, gently gurgling "Sunshine" is like a soundtrack to a daydream. Comparisons abound (Lauryn Hill-meets-Dionne Warwick as scored by a blunted De La Soul maybe?) but perhaps the best description of Floetic yet unearthed is "sass and soul." And, at almost 70 minutes long, it's a steal. --Kim Hughes

I must say I was very impressed wit this album from the very talented Floetry - quite frankly I was blown away, even after I dismissed the first single "Floetic". Every track is brilliantly prepared, and the 2 bonus tracks (Butterflies demo and Now You're Gone) are excellent. Even if you are not a fan of Natalie's spoken flows (which are very good), Marsha's voice is enough to keep anyone listening, Here is my analysis on each song:
1. Big Ben - hypnotic intro, but you'd prefer to skip it after the first few listens
2. Floetic - i was NOT feeling this song. i do not like it at all. its sound is not very catching, especially for a 1st single
3. Ms. Stress - wonderful! nat and marsha work very well 2gether on this song.
4. Fun - upbeat, nice song. it doesnt knock you off ur feet but still a nice song
5. Sunshine - this song makes you think. very relaxing
6. Headache - also very good. not too mch to say about this record, but its good
7. Possibilities - kinda like the intro, you'd prefer 2 skip it over after the first few listens. not that its a bad song, yo'd just be in a hurry 2 hear the better songs after it. emotional song, inspiring
8. Say Yes - hypnotic! this should've been the 1st single. very sexy song and its a definite "cut jam"
9. Hello - not much 2 say about this song. its wonderful tho
10. Getting Late - another cut jam... its got a innocence to it. very pure, but still sexy
11. Hey You - everyone can relate to this song. its another floetry slow jam, and its wonderful
12. If I Was A Bird - very pretty. almost predictable lyrics, but the way marsha sings makes it seem all brand new
13. Opera - ok song... u have to be in the mood for it, but if u are then its grade a quality
14. Mr.

I have had an advance of this album for several months, and I think this is one of the most BRILLIANT debuts I have heard in a while. Floetry is the London-bred duo of Marsha Ambrosius "The Songstress" and Natalie Stewart "The Floacist" (the songwriters responsible for Michael Jackson's "Butterflies", the only hit that came from his "Invincible" album). Together they deliver a soulful fusion of Soul and Poetry. Floetry blends Marsha's soulful voice with Natalie's thought provoking words and the product is a success that deserves to be heard by anyone who truly appreciates good music. From the hip-hop intro of "Big Ben" to the sure fire dance floor hit "Mr Messed Up",and everything in between, Floetry brings much needed soul to the airwaves. The lead single/video "Floetic" is already a buzzclip on MTV and in constant rotation. Other highlights on the album are the poignant "Ms. Stress" and the soulful "Sunshine," "Say Yes," and "Hello". EVERYONE I have played this CD for has loved it. This is one of those albums where you will play it from start to finish and want to press repeat. Floetry is to 2002 what Jill Scott was to 2000. I can not recommend this CD enough. GET THIS CD, you won't be disappointed

Pure floetry in motion is how to describe this brilliant debut from Floacist and Songtress. The unique mixture of rap/poetry, soulful singing, and skillful production from the A Touch Of Jazz boys have produced my favourite album release of the year so far. The Floetic single alerted me to Floetry a while back with a fresh non-artificial sound, so when I saw the album in a Soho CD store a couple of weeks ago I took a chance and bought it. It hasn't been out of my player since.
All cuts are killers, but my standouts include 'Getting Late' 'Say Yes' 'Hey You', ultra sensual, sexy tracks that caress your feelings, and 'Mr. Messed Up' a potential single that will get you moving. Other favorites include 'Ms. Stressed' 'Sunshine' and 'Hello'.
Both Floacist and Songstress's vocals are top draw, easily eclipsing the majority of manufactured so called R&B artists out there (who are boring me). They prove that strong songs and vocals are sexier to me than the latest skimpy outfit. They are backed up superbly by A Touch Of Jazz, who are responsible for my other favorite artists like Jill Scott and Glenn Lewis (who I just found out Floetry also penned songs for).
Sweet, sensual, sexy, soul is what this album is all about, all done with a native London accent (I'm not biased honestly). Perfect music to chill out after a hard day!

The Philly females that make up Neo-Soul RnB/Rap group Floetry are very talented women, women who still have positive insights on political issues, love & the world. If you pop this into your cd player, you won't hear no drug dealing, no sexual encounters, and absolutely no bullets flying through the air. Just inspirational lyrics over smooth instrumentals that would be right at home in smokey underground jazz clubs that open their doors at midnight. As usual though, the true musicians in the industry today will be overlooked for artists that sell strictly on their look alone, and its a shame, for this album should not be slept on.
The ground-breaking special effects in the video for the album's first single "Floetic" was a very smart move. Without these, the video most likely would not even get noticed, because the women that make up Floetry actually keep their clothes on in the video, something rare in the world today. The album is very diverse, the topics range from many different issues, however songs are still enjoyable instead of feeling like your in school. Tracks like "Fun", "Sunshine", "Headache" & "Possibilites" are all hot as hell and will definetly keep the attention of fans of Erykah Badu or D'Angelo.
The album is also laced with gorgeous ballads such as "Say Yes", "Hey You" & "If I Was a Bird". Fans who don't understand the metaphors & poetic invisions imbedded in the Neo-Soul music will think these girls are insane and speaking some form of gibberish, but for those who can, they will find themselves agreeing with their opinions & spiritual offerings.
The debut album from these women is very impressive and I hope to hear a great deal more from them in the future.
