4.0 out of 5 stars Trippy Soul September 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I saw the video for "The Worst" and fell in love with the song, so I took note of the artiste, Jhené Aiko. I found out she is one of the artistes to watch out for in 2014 so I've been on the lookout for her debut album.

And here it is. "Souled Out" is a woozy psychedelic R&B affair with heavenly strings, delicately caressed keyboards and soft guitars perfectly showcasing her feathery vocals, dreamy and floaty like the cover art. Retro, yet futuristic sounding.

"Limbo Limbo Limbo" is a dewy ballad with gentle Hip Hop beats, sparkling flourishes and squealing guitar. Similar is the enchanting "To Live & Die" featuring Cocaine 80s and the lyrics "We live by the love, die by the love". The trippy "It's Cool" has a Jazzy lilt.

The album is even paced and it's really tough to pick standouts when the songs are so strong, but other favourites are "Lyin King", "Wading", the more upbeat groovy "The Pressure", the quivery acoustic "Brave" with skittery beats (and lyrics telling her man he is brave to love her, a woman with "scars on my heart"), the piano-driven "Eternal Sunshine (with vinyl pops to add to the retro feel), the affecting acoustic ballad "Promises" featuring her daughter Namiko (inspired by her late brother Miyagi - who also features on the song - and produced by Norwegian Electronica duo Röyksopp), and the Jazzy "Pretty Bird (Freestyle)" (with freeform lyrics, sporadic shards of guitar, and an outstanding appearance by Common).

The deluxe edition has two additional songs, the lovely acoustic "Remember", and the spectacular "Blue Dream" from which you will not wish to awake. "Don't wake me up cause I'm in love with all that you are" she croons against an atmospheric backdrop. Sheer bliss. This song is indescribably beautiful. The Target edition has two additional bonus tracks, the dreamy acoustic "You Vs Them" and "Beautiful Rain", Soul with a Folk/Pop vibe. I'm totally "souled" on this album, a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly Morning + Midnight Mix September 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Jhené Aiko's first full-album release doesn't disappoint those that have followed her, yet appeals plenty enough for mainstream listeners in her own way. This album can be listened as a progression from a "dark to brighter place" from beginning to end, with her voice and melodic production. Aiko's voice is truly mesmerizing and her song choices all reflect well-collaborated decision making. The album lacks a "club-banger" for better or for worse (I'm siding with the former) but the song choices follow a theme as if you're listening to an entire mix of soulful music with a rhythmic beat that'll keep you entranced throughout, whether it's a refreshing wakeup-call or soothing lullaby. The snares and strings production-choices strike a solid balance of soulful and carefree.

Personal favorites are uppity "Lyin King" and the melodic "Spotless Mind" and "Eternal Sunshine," as well as the singles "To Love & Die" and "The Pressure." Aiko features her daughter and late brother on the song "Promises" that's very well-written and quite endearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait!!!! September 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD
The wait is over and I couldn't be more in love with this album! This is the 1st album in years that I actually went out and purchased! Jhene Aiko is simply amazing, I've been following her since day 1, she's definitely come along way! Her music is such a breath of fresh air, it's timeless! If you enjoy relaxing, chill, laid back type music, I HIGHLY recommend this album!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a lot better... September 25, 2014
By J.A.G.
Format:MP3 Music
Jhene Aiko album “Souled Out” is a bit underwhelming.

My opinion and judgment of her album is naturally based on what I’ve heard previously from (Sail Out), other artists I’ve listened to, her voice, lyrics, music, beats, and the genre she is marketed as or being placed in.

So let’s start with how I was introduced to her in the first place.

I purchased her album based on her collaboration on Drake’s song “From Time”. I really liked the song and I felt that she stood out enough and added elements to the track that made the effort sound like a duet. It’s easy to take the back seat on a song performing with an artist of Drake’s caliber and she didn’t do that. I was intrigued.

Based on that song, I decided to seek her out. I didn’t know much about her and found out that she had been around and that she had an album that was shelved. I haven’t heard it but I did come across the EP “Sail Out”. I purchased it and I felt that it was a decent album with the stand out songs being “The Worst” and “Stay Ready (What a Life)”. The rest of the album was good overall.

“Souled Out” seems stuck vocally and sonically. The vibey, airy tones, keyboards over heavy bass beats and slowed-down snares get muddled over the course of the album and end up making it sound like a long lounge/trip hop track with pauses and slight tempo changes in-between. Her voice begins to sound very monotone over the course of the album. I can’t really narrow down a particular track I like because it all blends together for me. I feel like she could have held back the release of “Sail Out”, refined some of the tracks that came out on “Souled Out”, and had more solid effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Contender for Album of the Year 2014 September 9, 2014
By L. Boki
Format:Audio CD
Still completely enchanted with "Sailing Souls" and a CD of "Unreleased" tracks, Jhene is easily my best new discovery in 2013. I wondered who she was when I saw "Sailing Souls" hit #1 on the iTunes R&B album chart....I decided to take the plunge and buy the EP. I have been anxiously waiting her full debut ever since.
And here it is. It seems so off base to classify it as an R&B artist/album because though she is soulful, she also fits on alternative radio stations too.
After enjoying so much of what I have been able to discover on Jhene, here finally is her album debut. And it has fulfilled all my hopes and more!!!
"The Pressure" jumps out from the pack. It opens up with a very soulful rhythm and a killer opening line, "I care about you Baby, Baby more than you'll ever know". A very simple line that she delivers with sensual confidence. It made me sit up and say, "you go on girl!!!" It made me playback at least 5 times.
The couple of reviews that have brought the album the 5-star rating given by all the other reviewers reveal a certain level of incomprehension. I, too, didn't and still don't condone this being classified as R&B. But after numerous intimate listenings, the soulful rhythms and her phrasing can be interpreted in several ways. And the questioning of its digital-based sound is also baffling......after all this is an artist who's work organically grew from a digital reference point.
"Eternal Sunshine" opens up with a oh so sweet tickling of the Ivory keys leading into a beautiful, dreamy atmospheric ingenue that is an important quality in my attraction to Jhene "Eternal Sunshine" is a wonderfully romantic song....sung by someone who is deeply in love and does not take for granted just what a blessing that is. And it ends with haunting sound bytes from her deceased sibling and her little daughter..
