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.

Customer Reviews

This is such an awesome CD I had to buy it again cause I keep giving it away to friends!
Sharon Fisccher
The guest artists definitely bend G. Love toward their own sound, Rainbow could fit on a Johnson album, Let the Music Play on a Ben harper album, etc.
R. C. Schmults
While not a main stream artist G. Love has been around for awhile and continues to bring that style he does so well.

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).

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.

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!

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.

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.

Oh G. Make a right turn toward the blues and away from the pop.

For those not familar with G. Love, his sound on Lemonade is probably best described as an urban Jack Johnson. Much of the lyrics are in a rap cadence rather than the beach vibe of Johnson and the funk beat is stronger. Not to say G. Love is trying to copy Johnson (who appears the song "Rainbow") -- he has had his sound since before Johnson broke it big. But this is definitely some of G. Love's mellowest work. The prevalence of songs "featuring..." is interesting. The guest artists definitely bend G. Love toward their own sound, Rainbow could fit on a Johnson album, Let the Music Play on a Ben harper album, etc.

For folks who already know G. Love, the strong use of harmonica that is a trademark on earlier work is much less prevalent here. Also, the funkiness is turned down a marked degree from earlier work. Sound is a lot softer and mellower despite tunes like "Can't Go Back to Jersey" and "Ain't That Right" which would fit in with earlier work. Definitely not saying its a bad effort -- just be prepared for a much more laid back sound with just a couple of exceptions like Banger and Jersey.
