Editorial Reviews

A musical sorority sister of Alicia Keys and Angie Stone--though she'd doubtless bristle at the suggestion--Philly-reared soul singer Res nevertheless manages to strike a convincing balance between the street and the studio on How I Do, juxtaposing saucy, melodic pop with more ragged funk and R&B. That kind of crossover is impressive, but Res (pronounced Reese) uses her elastic and surprisingly vibrato-free voice to poke around in various corners, even taking tentative steps toward rhyme. Co-conspirator and producer Martin "Doc" McKinney's thumbprints are evident in the smooth flow of beats and gurgling ambient washes, though unlike his previous work with Toronto trip-hop unit Esthero, McKinney's sonic high jinks are opposite a voice with the muscle to stay in the spotlight. At once smoochy and sassy, How I Do goes a long way toward establishing Res as a powerful new voice on the pop and urban scenes. --Kim Hughes

5.0 out of 5 stars Plays Like a Greatest Hits Album!!! October 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Res is too damn unknown for someone as pretty and talented as she is. There's got to be a conspiracy. This is one of the top 5 albums ever made. I listen to it anytime I'm in the mood to be impressed by music. Its perfect. Its much different than a lot of other stuff, too. Res is pretty unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES to RES July 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Res (actually pronounced "Reese") and Alicia Keys are two female contemporary urban/soul artists who are destined to be HUGE, and if you haven't yet heard of Res, you will...from track #1, Golden Boys, to the very last track, New York newcomer Res debuts with a CD that's consistent, high quality (songs, vocals, production) and quite special. Res is cool, hip, intelligent, talented and apart from the fact that she somewhat resembles Lauryn Hill, she's in the same calibre when it comes to sheer talent. if you're looking for some new, street soul, songs that mean something and accessible, yet blissfully superior music to what's currently out there, treat yourself to some RES!

5.0 out of 5 stars How she does her own February 17, 2002
By Omagus
Format:Audio CD
With the so-called "neo-soul" movement being in the forefront of music today, many of the artists' who fit under that umbrella, such as Jill Scott (deserverdly so) and Alicia Keys (less deservedly so...thus far) have been lauded by critics. Some people would be quick to put Res in that same category, but anyone doing so would just be revealing to the world that they are not even pretending to listen to her music. There may be some underlying similarities between the three artists' but only in the way that a dove and a bald eagle are similar.
Res' music is very much a product of her own invention; a refreshing mix of funk, hip hop and who knows what else type of influences she has. She would be more comparable to Nelly Furtado (but in a less pop vein) with some Red Hot Chili Peppers thrown in. And Rick Rubin handling the production.
Blessings to Res for doing her thing. I can only hope more people learn to appreciate it for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously underrated March 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've owned this album for nearly four years and I can never grow tired of it. Res provides hip-hop beats, trip-hop grooves and smooth jams--all at once--while delivering Santi White's rock solid and truthful lyrics in a syrupy, raspy style I've never heard roll from anyone else's tongue. This album was released back in 2001 and as I said before, is timeless. How I Do is more than "neo-soul", it blatantly forces you to redefine what "black music"(aka the type of music black people are "allowed" to sing). I echo another reviewer's sentiments concerning her sophmore album: just like the wonderful Esthero, Res seems to be plagued by her label's lack of interest. Hopefully 2007 will see a new Res album! But in the meantime, pick this one up, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love This CD!!!! October 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I got this CD a year ago and it's one of my favorites. A Black artist who branches out and experiments with varying, eclectic sounds. The fact that music like hers doesn't get more airplay is the injustice of the mainstream music world. She runs rings around the likes of Ashanti. My favorite songs of the disc are "700 Mile Situation" and "If There Ain't Nothing." Although, I love the whole disc. It's definitely worth the investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Res October 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Res is quite the artist, who should be well respected for her skills. The thing that stands out to me about "Res" debut is her lyrics. If you listen closely, the words are saying something. It's refreshing to get away from the shake that thang, bling bling, lyrics. The other notable thing is that Res' style is more rock and roll than r&b. But if you're a broad minded music lover, you will appreciate this. A great CD all around.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars Is How She Does April 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Res' album has to be THE most slept on album of 2001. I think a lot of people wanted to slap it with a "neo soul" tag but couldn't. I'm one of many people that believe there is no such thing as "neo soul". Therefore, whenever you see me type that, it will ALWAYS be in qoutations. If people would've taken a listen before condemning her with imaginary tags, they would've heard innovative, inspirational, and very strong music that sounds like nothing "inside the box".
1) Golden Boys - Res starts off with a bang while touchig on the foolishness of praising false idols. Here voice is almost hypnotizing.
2) They Say Vision - The lead single. You've probably heard it. Now does this REALLY sound like "neo soul"? I certainly didn't think so. I'm STILL trying to figure out how ANYONE could think so.
3) 100 Mile Situation - Long distance love never sounded better. Again, her voice is almost hypnotizing. And the production is on point. Great song.
4) Ice King - My favorite song on the album. The beat is hot. She talks about the attractions and the pitfalls of being in a relationship with someone that doesn't reciprocate after she gave all she had. Great theme, amazing production.
5) Sittin' Back - This song seems somewhat out of place, it's still hot though. But it's not the Res that commands your attention like on most of the other tracks. Tight production though.
6) How I Do - Not terrible, but not great either. I like it, but I don't think many will. The production is a little odd and her voice can be viewed as annoying on this song. It's not a song that compliments her abilities.
7) If There Ain't Nothing - Aahhhhhhh, back to the great voice and production blend. Most of her beats compliment her voice very well.
