Editorial Reviews

Tart, Tangy, Smooth, and oh so lip-smacking Sweet! Aaah yes, time to praise the almighty summer sippin' thirst quencher, being served straight up G. Love style, ice cool and always refreshing. On his second release for Brushfire Records, the Philly boy offers up Lemonade, a series of soul drenched tracks pouring out blues infused hip-hop, which people have been trying to label for years. The best advice .don't try to tame it or claim it; it's simply his sonic trademark, instantly recognizable and addictively delicious. Seven albums, thirteen years, and a million worldwide units later, Lemonade is the most cohesive and rewarding album Garrett Dutton - a.k.a. G. Love has ever delivered.

Helping a friend get settled in the area - and went flipping through the CD collection that came along. I did a double take when I saw the good ol' "G. Love and Special Sauce" first album, self-titled. What memories that brought back - in high school - of finding this new sound... when I was kind of tired of the same old stuff at the time (read: grunge rock...) G Love with Special Sauce was true feelgood music, true to some jazzy, bluesy, hip-hop roots with a taste of other influences. I didn't need political lyrics or any statements more than the background message in the melody - simmer down or shake your body. G Love catered with something unique and better yet, just fun. (exception in a few songs - how can an artist not have a message? Listen to "This Ain't Livin'" and a few other songs on their other albums. Typically the songs are simple - you'll get the feel that G Love's not out to save the world - he's out to enjoy it).

In between G Love & Special Sauce found greater success with each album released. Not quite in order - Yeah It's that Easy and Philadelphonic were even better - Coast to Coast and Electric Mile both strayed from their sound for me, but I appreciate the experimentation and listen to them equally. The lineup of all their albums is a must have. Their Greatest Hits album is only a handful - picking the low-lying fruit of their sounds.

The Hustle came out in '04 under Jack Johnson's label. The first without Special Sauce and it showed. I liked it, but I missed the groove that Prescott and Clemens brought (the Special Sauce of the band).

Lemonade stands out as a return of Special Sauce to the mix - full circle. Not only that, but accompanied by a really great lineup of guests (check the song list).

5.0 out of 5 stars fresh squeezed and soulful August 1, 2006
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
I really liked what G did on his previous release, "The Hustle" and he manages to top it with "Lemonade". Total run time is something like 57 minutes so you really get your money's worth and it never gets boring. From slow and solemn numbers like "Breakin' Up", to the bluesy "Still Hangin' Around" and the ever-grooving "Holla!" the songs are very diverse and never predictable but they still keep the classic G. Love vibe that we all know and love. I really liked all the guest musicians (including Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Blackalicious and of course, Special Sauce) on this record because it keeps the sound fresh and different.

I would highly reccomend picking this album up. Its perfect for summertime chillin, whether you're taking a ride with the windows down on a hot summer day or maxin' on the porch on a quiet summer's eve. It's the way to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sit with a glass and try it out... August 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This cd touches on every surface of music complimenting its smooth jazz tones with a finish of hip-hop. While not a main stream artist G. Love has been around for awhile and continues to bring that style he does so well.

The single "Hot Cookin'" is a stand out on the cd and likens to such artists as Lenny Kravits and his own lable mate Jack Johnson, who also makes a guest spot on the track "Rainbow" adding more diversity to the album.

If you enjoy smooth hip-hop style lyrics with mellow jazz funk beats your going to be in heaven with this cd and obviously fans know what he brings to the table, so to all the fans, this is a must buy.

Best G. Love cd yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stellar album with top notch guests August 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I read through the reviews posted here and was surprised to see no one mentioned the fact that the most standout track on the album has to be Banger with guests Blackalicious and Lateef. I agree it has to be the most bangin' track on the album and has some of the best flowing prose I've heard in a while. What bothers me about the song is I can't quite figure out if he's making an allegory or if he is simply a junkie that always loses the battle. If so, thats sad.

BTW, G Love is a must see in concert. Its sad to see someone like Jack Johnson get so much more press when it was G that put him on the map to begin with. G will blow you away in concert if you enjoy what you hear in his albums, while Jack's concerts are mediocre at best. The last time I saw G, he solo'd with a vocoder part-way through the set and it was phenomenal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!!!! December 27, 2006
By Mark L
Format:Audio CD
Been waiting long time for this...knew G. had it in him...became less interested with each album since the debut and sorta gave up on on him after Electric Mile (Except for the incredible Sara's Song, that album just never did it for me)...bought this on impulse...In my opinion, Lemonade contains elements of what put him on the map (the debut)...but incorporates his growth/experience over the years...e.g. Philadephonic, Yeah, etc. Excellent use of guests too...and Jasper's in fine form. Maybe I'll go back and get Hustle now.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not G. Love at his best August 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I just picked up G. Love's new cd. I've been a big G. Love fan for awhile now. "Lemonade" is by far the most 'poppy' of any of his albums. There are some decent tracks: "Beautiful" is a great tune featuring Tristan Prettyman, who has an amazing voice, and I love "Let the Music Play" feat. Ben Harper. Other than that, I would have to say that I am slightly disappointed with this album. Most of the lyrics are cheezy and it's not G. Love at his best. If you want to listen to some higher-quality G. Love tunes, pick up "Philadelphonic" or "Yeah, It's That Easy".

It's not Philidelphonic, but few albums can be. That said, I've been listening to Lemonade over and over again! I suggest you buy it if you are a fan of G. Love and Special Sauce.

I like this album for it's diversity, bluesy hiphop mix. sounds crazy but G. Love makes it work. check out "New Fad Zoo" for a similar "indy" hip hop feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff -- but mellower than earlier G. Love
For those not familar with G. Love, his sound on Lemonade is probably best described as an urban Jack Johnson. Read more
