Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the R&B vocalist and former Labelle member. Whether you've been a fan since the days of Labelle and her acclaimed solo albums of the '80s or you're new to her signature sound, Nona will have you moving your feet and working your brain at the same time. On focus tracks "The Tea Party" and "Black Boys," the groove is deep and the lyrics are as current as the crawl on the 24-hour news networks. Powerhouse vocals, blistering guitars, killer horns, gospel flourishes, and unstoppable beats fuel scathing attacks on political and religious conservatives, corporate greed, and black-on-black violence, among other targets. The result is an album steeped in vintage R&B and soul, but totally in tune with the here and now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Music That Speaks To You August 11, 2012
By K. bell
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nona must be 66 or 67 but you would never guess it by the strenght of her voice and with the today vibe that she buts herself in musically with this CD. After the second listen of this CD I found myself wondering what more could she have done to make this CD even better and to be honest there's nothing more that could have added to make this CD elavate. Water reached it's level with this work of musical art. There are two songs (Black Boys and Strange Fruit)that in my opinion could have been left off of the project because they don't fit the theme of the project. However the rest of the songs are top of the line, couldn't get any better, I'm going to speak to you music. Nona is a fearless woman who with this project should be reconized as one of our great artist who deserves to be heard. To present something like this CD to the musical landscape of today you have to be a fearless person. With radio being ran by corporations I don't expect any of these songs being played on the radio however I'm hoping that there is some fearless DJ who's out there and expose this CD to the people. She's speaking (not preaching) to the people via song and she deserves to be heard!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Not "Keep It Confidential" August 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Get the word out...Nona Hendryx is back! This album is a rarity in so many ways...good songs, real musicians, great and passionate vocals...everything that has been missing from R&B for the last 20 years! You cannot help multitasking when playing Mutatis will dance AND think! Blistering musicianship, thought provoking lyrics, passion are all here in abundance. I saw Nona live a few weeks ago at a small club. Her set featured mostly songs from this cd, with a few older tunes. Nona and her band TORE it up for 75 minutes. It was rock and roll and soul at their finest. Nona was so lithe and feline in her movements, she was mesmerising. I spoke with her briefly after the show and bought the cd. It has been in heavy rotation since. Favorite songs...Temple Of Heaven,Let's Give Love A Try, The Ballad of Rush Limbaugh(the background heavy breathing vocals are haunting) and Mad As Hell. No matter your political affiliation, this album WILL make you think...and party at the same time. As I said to the(young) bartender at the Nona show I have been schooled!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nona Revival ! August 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This new album by the amazing Nona Hendryx not only revives her career of releasing albums, but is a revival on many levels. After an unbearable , unexplainable gap of 23 years for her fans, this album is most welcome. Nona produced , and as custom, wrote the majority of songs. Dating back to the early 70's with Labelle, Nona wrote socially conscious and politically charged lyrics , and this new album is filled with Nona writing about the ills of the world today. It is great to hear real musicians playing & singing, and production is true to the music, without much programming that is in so much current music. Funk, rock, jazz, blues, gospel - the songs have a blend of all these forms of music. After 50 years in the music business, Nona is a veteran who knows a lot about quality music. As with Marvin Gaye , Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway & Stevie Wonder, Nona pays respect to the musical forms of the past while writing about the ways that the world is still so messed up. Nona is very attuned to the state of the USA's problems on politically charged songs like THE TEA PARTY, OIL ON THE WATER and WHEN LOVE GOES TO WAR . Less socially motivated songs LET'S GIVE LOVE A TRY and BLACK BOYS, the most rock-oriented track offer a good break lyrically and musically. A remake of the Billie Holiday song STRANGE FRUIT is played and sung solo by Nona with a mash-up of someone reciting Martin Luther King's most famous speech. MAD AS HELL PART ONE is a perfect closer that is all funked up with Nona going to town. I'm very happy that Nona has finally released a real album. Originally released only as download with only the first 8 songs over a year ago, I am much happier with this release as a real album to buy , hear and hold. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars An Always Daring Artist Never Lost A Step August 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Nona Hendryx,upon beginning her solo career from Labelle always thrived in dropping whatever barriers may have been put up between rock n' roll,soul and funk music. Not only that but her outspoken persona earned her enormous respect from those who'd become aware of her talents. It may have taken her some time between her previous album Skin Diver and this one,some 23 years in fact. But there are some cases where that has a lot of value too. That era between than and now has,frankly been the domain of an R&B/soul community that has become musically and lyrically numb to well thought out social commentary. It's usually been either outrage and anger or depraved sexuality of one sort or another. In the post 9/11 world all the issues Nona faced in her earlier years of the 70's such as poor economy,religious persecution and racism are still very much an issue. Only they where different skins perhaps. Here Nona let's her flag fly as she not only looks to these issues for inspiration but confronts them head on.

The opening horn funk groove of "Tea Party" is a powerful number,showcasing what an aberration Nona still remains in the music world as she points to them as the "all about me party". Although it's not her being snippity. There's an earnestness to her tone that can heard throughout the album. The Stonsey style rocker "Temple Of Heaven" and the bluesy crawl of "When Love Goes To War" illustrate the parasitic effect right wing religious practices have in society at large. In much the same updated folky blues/funk Nona delivers "Oil On The Water" very much on the energy crisis and "The Ballad Of Rush Limbaugh". Won't go too much into that one as I'd recommend you hear that for yourself.
