Editorial Reviews

Frankie Knuckles "A New Reality" transpired as a reflection of his touring, and the transformation he felt post 9/11. The observations around the globe, peoples need to party & enjoy life, their need to escape, and also connect with other. Knuckles has taken that global information and created a mixture of house and soulful R&B. Knuckles brings back his team Engineer Dave Sussman along with arranger Danny Madden, programmers and Keyboard players Eric Kupper, Alex Schantez, and Peter "Ski" Schwartz for strings. Nicki Richards, known by superstars from Janet Jackson to Sting as the girl to get on backing vocals is featured on tracks such as "Matter of Time", "Journey", "I’ve Had Enough", "The Bumpkin Song (Gimme Gimme)". To take you further on this Journey thorough time you will find "Hit the Flo", co written and engineered by Satoshi Tomiie, which features CeCe Rogers on vocals.

The first single "Bac N da Day" is the first time Knuckles and Jamie Principle have collaborated in almost 20 years and is mixed by the Cleptomaniacs, Brian Tappert and John Julius Knight. To round out this package, Knuckles has discovered yet another new talent in Japan piano player/ writer Daisuke, who wrote and performed the track "Emotional Energy". The album is full of surprises and will appeal to lovers of Dance and Electronic as well as R&B!

Format:Audio CD
Can we get a little church up in here!!!!!!!!! You want good dance music buy this album. 3 tracks that are a must are Journey- recommended for those whose nerves are being worked, Matter of Time- for those who are tired of being lonely and I've had Enough- for those who are just tired of the lies and cheating in general. Can I get a Amen Somebody!!!!!!!

What happened, Frankie? When you produced this CD, did you forget the hooks, the vocals, the arrangements, the polish, the deep soul? This sounds nothing like the deep house Frankie I know and love - I kept skipping to the next and next and next track, until finally at the end arrives "I'VE HAD ENOUGH" - which is the lone OK vocal house track on here, but...wait for it...this is a lame remake of Frankie's OWN earlier mid-90s version of the same song originally sung by gospel diva DENETRIA CHAMP - now THAT was a stunning vocal house anthem. But this "new reality" is fake.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new classic from the Godfather of House May 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There's lots of dance music out there but nothing as well crafted as what this guy does. This is not a typical DJ mix, the album is varied in mood and styles. A must for your classic House collection. It was worth the wait Frankie!

simply put, your collection is incomplete until you add this CD. It is IMHO his best to date! the beat and the mood varies but is solid throughout. the music and vocals are hot. let's dance!
