Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning recording artist. Producers joining her in the studio on the project include Jermaine Dupri, Bryan Cox, Pop & Oak, Salaam Remi, Polow Da Don, Lamb and Missy Elliott. After the successes of last year's Still Standing and her BET reality show of the same name, The First Lady of Atlanta has continued on a whirlwind path this year that saw her contributing her talents as a guest mentor alongside Cee Lo Green on NBC's breakout reality music competition series The Voice, all the while completing work on her own new album.

Simply put: Monica is one of the top vocalists in the industry. PERIOD. She has excelled over the years to a caliber of style that is truly what we can all characterize as classic. It's so important to support voices like Monica's and those of her genre mates. Sadly, they don't get the credit they deserve and are deemed underrated; this should not be the case and we have the power to change that! Real R&B (Soul Music) is what artists like Monica, Faith Evans, Kelly Price, Tyrese, John Legend, Ledisi, Fantasia, Anthony Hamilton, Usher, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, R. Kelly, Jaheim, Musiq Soulchild, Avant (just to name a few), give to us in addition to our soul music legends of the past that include Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, etcetera.

WE MUST PRESERVE OUR MUSIC BY SUPPORTING REAL RHYTHM & BLUES SOUNDS, IT'S REAL MUSIC!

Monica's growth as an artist shows on her latest album release entitled: `New Life,' she's an R&B veteran. Monica seems to be justifiably happier now in her personal and professional life. The `New Life' album is evidence of this because she sings volumes about how she has withstood the dramas of yesterday and transcended into her `New Life' (hence the title of the album).

Some of my favorite tracks from the album are...

*Anything (To Find You) featuring Rick Ross
-This song is featured only on the Deluxe Version of the Album.
*It All Belongs To Me Duet with Brandy
-Monica and Brandy make history once again with a nice duet; glad to see them back together again!
*Until It's Gone
-Beautiful song, powerful lesson!
*Time To Move On
-THIS IS DEFINITELY THE POWER BALLAD OF THE ALBUM! EXCELLENT TRACK!

Since Monica debuted on the R&B scene in 1995, her voice has never disappointed. Even if Monica recorded one of the worst songs ever written, by the time you get to the end of that Horrible record you would not be able to criticize her voice. To go along with her voice, Monica is a pro at delivering a story which is what the true essence of R&B is all about. Delivering a message, story, and doing it with soul. "New Life" stays true to that. The album highlights her past troubles, while embracing her new blessings. Monica serves up both songs recorded about her happier place, and songs recorded about her darker times understanding that her fans all over the globe can relate to both.

STAND OUT TRACKS
"Man Who Has Everything"
"Biggest Mistake"
"Cry" - (In my opinion the best song on the album.)
"Time To Move On"
"Amazing"
"Until It's Gone"
"It All Belongs To Me"
"Catch Me"

A lot of people have been saying the album is the same old Monica, or predictable, but that's the essence of a true artist. Monica does not switch lanes because it may be in style. Monica did not dye her hair Pink and do a rock inspired record because that's whats being played on the Radio. What Monica did was continue to do the music she loves, the music her fans love, and whats true in her heart.

I have been a Monica fan for a LONG time (since the beginning)- I pre-ordered this cd b/c I was SO excited- HOWEVER there are only a couple songs I REALLY love (one being the single). Amazon shipped it FAST (I got it release day), but i'm not really happy with it. I am a ballad girl by heart and I feel Monica's vocal abilities are endless- I just am not a fan of the song choices for this album... It's ok.. my opinion is it could be a bit better.. I STILL love her though~ and will ALWAYS be a supporter

I truly do love and respect Monica for not selling out to the mainstream music industry.
This album is real R&B!
Mo sings her heart out on ALL the tracks!
No auto-tune here!!!
I love all the songs but I think my favorite ones are Daddy's Good Girl, Amazing, Cry, In 3D, and Without You.
I love the whole album though.
Thanks Monica for staying true to yourself and your fans!

New Life is a fresh take on love from Monica. It's not so heavy subject matter wise, though lyrically it still is heavy in a good way. While remaining breezy and optimistic. Basically, the album makes you want a good relationship, to be in love. And I'm not mad at that. The biggest complaint thus far I heard, is the album is too slowed down and mid-tempo/ballad heavy. Well again, who says we can't have that? The album is breezy enough for spring and summer. And people wanted something different from the Georgia native sonic wise and vocal wise. Well they got it. The Reggae tinged Man Who Has Everything, the slick radio friendly Take A Chance, and the country flavored Time To Move On. Breathe (which is on the deluxe edition) is like an unplugged type of song. Perfect for show casing Monica's vocal prowness. And "In 3D" and "Catch Me" are also different for her, in terms of sound and voice. Crisp, clean, contemperary vocals. Vocallly, she stretched a few bounderies. Showcasing her new found power, control, and range.

The only song I don't personally like, is "Amazing." How can JD and B Cox give her "Love All Over Me" last go round, but give her a lackluster (and I'm being nice) track such as that? Anyway, yeah the reviewers may be trashing it. But so what. That's just one person's opinion. What really matters is how the consumers are going to respond to the album. And from what I saw today, the the album is being well recieved.. So it's looking pretty good for Miss Thang right now. I don't know about anybody else, but the album isn't bad at all. Is it groundbreaking? No. Is it a fresh spin for Monica? Yes. This happily married mother of two, shows you that real love is still left in the world.
