I first heard You Gotta Be, and was very pleased with positive lyrics in a time of total absurdities (the 90's and Unfortunately-the current times).Bought the Cd, and have been playing it ever since.I cannot state in words how much I like the title track-it brings me to tears!! If everybody was forced to listen to this cd, the world would be a better place, and everybody would be more grounded in the reality of what life really means, instead of absurdities like Jerry Springer,and the various disgusting displays of the worst of humanity which permeate the afternoon tv airwaves.Herald the day says it all,honesty always pays,people can only blame themselves for their mistakes,just mend your ways .We are unfortunately living in a crazy maze-much crazier than 1994, when this came out!! A truly great artist who doesnt play the commercial game most contemporary artists do.The Fender rhodes electric piano on Living in the city reminds me of Songs In The Key Of Life(Stevie Wonder)-THE MOST INCREDIBLE ALBUM EVER. If you can still find it-the CD single of Feel So HIGH has an outstanding rare bluesy track called Innocent and Naive. PS.I'm also an IRON MAIDEN fan,so never judge anything or anybody until you've seen things from their point of view.Believe it or not,Iron Maiden has a few songs not unlike what are on this DESREE cd, even with the positive messages.Next time you see a kid with the grunge look,he just might be a desree fan!!!!

This is one of my favorite CDs and I have been listening to it for years. It's very rare to find a CD on which you like every track. I originally purchased this CD simply because I loved "You Gotta Be", but after listening to it, I loved it. "You Gotta Be" is a an uplifting song that motivates you when your down. Des'ree puts such emotion into singing these lyrics. Feel So High, and I Ain't Movin are powerful songs.

Des'ree's lyrics are thoughtful and inspirational, and I think it's a real shame that she hasn't been received that well on a national scale on the radio. Her "Gotta Be" video was in heavy rotation on VH1, but I hardly ever heard her music on the radio. With all of the third-rate, meaningless music flooding the airwaves, you would think that more folks would be clamoring for more substantial fare. Released in 1994, right before the wave of neosoul artists arrived on the scene, maybe Des'ree was just ahead of her time with this CD.
"You Gotta Be" is my personal theme song and for a while there I used to play it every morning before I left the house. "You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser. You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger." I love it!
My other favorite "Feel So High," was featured in the motion picture "Set it Off," which undoubtedly broadened the artist's exposure because she surely wasn't getting much love from urban radio. This was the first that many people heard of her, and what an introduction! "Feel So High," finds her singing about being totally into a lover while trying to control herself. Lots of nice metaphors here: "When I touch your sky, I want my joy to be discreet, can't seem to hide the feeling that you knock me off my feet." It works because it's unabashed without being explicit.
I like this CD because Des'ree is really smooth and understated. She kind of puts me in mind of Sade in that respect, but her lyrics are not quite as depressing. This is cool and intelligent music.

Des'ree second delivery is full with smooth pop gems that exposed the different stages of love, a great slick production that flows throughly without any attmeptimg to change Des'ree direction of taking over her music, wich is pure and simple love songs, this album is truly a chillout one and it will suit any peaceful occation, not a party stomper though. Great album that includes such highlights like the unfairly charted single "Feel So High"(my personal fav), the ever radio played "You Gotta Be" and "Little Child", a great songtress a great sound, such a delight.

first and formost i was a weird black female growing up.by the 90's when i was attending middle school,and high school i was into alternative EVERYTHING!.alt hip-hop/rap,alt metal,alt rock,alt R&B etc etc............but i still had a taste for hardcore rap music(go figure)

this album was no different really,

now even though i love this album i dissagree with the editors comment of "You Gotta Be," rode lilting pop jazz backing to widespread acceptance (except, curiously, on "urban" radio, where her sound was deemed not black enough)"

ok heres the problem i have with that statement.although i think some blacks are extremly narrow minded when it comes to musical genres,i still don't think blacks should support black artists just because their black.you know people like darius rucker,tracy chapman,living color(whom i love),lenny kravits(whom i also love).

the thing is it comes down to taste then race.just because a artist is black doesn't mean they automaticly should be shoved onto a urban radio station.i would'nt expect urban radio to play living color,or lenny kravits.besides thats showing favortisim,if their gonna play living color then they might aswell play aerosmith,and the rolling stones.thats just like some rock station playing emenim (wich i heard actually has happened)

not to say des'ree isn't urban,but for the most part she's not.i really don't think she fits on urban radio,and i felt the same way about dionne farris.black listeners and urban radio wasn't really shunning the artists in question,they just didn't fit urban radio's programming.ok i'm off my soap box now lol

now my judgemant on the album itself.this album is so smooth its like rich chocolate.like most people i got it for got to be.
