Editorial Reviews

TLC's Left Eye finally got the solo bug out of her system by creating a solo album she can call her own and not have to wait up for her sisters to coordinate and compromise. Arista president L.A. Reid personally took charge of the proceedings to help her create the kind of record Lisa had always wanted to make. The spotlight is squarely on Lopes rapping ability and she took up the challenge with verve and moxy. The tragedy of her sudden passing makes the future success of the album bittersweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Left Eye stands on her own May 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
During 1999, the late Lisa Lopes (aka Left Eye), feeling somewhat restless in a group setting after learning of some uncomplimentary things that her fellow TLC bandmates stated about her in an interview, issued a challenge to them: Let's all make solo CDs and see whose will sell the best. Tionne Watkins (aka T-Boz) and Rozonda Thomas (aka Chilli) refused, but Left Eye went ahead and recorded her own: SUPERNOVA, a straight hip-hop CD, which was released as an European import last year. It was a total disgrace that LaFace/Arista didn't feel like it was good enough to be released here in the United States - they obviously had no faith in this project and didn't support it at all. I have to admire the effort Lisa put into this, even though I've always felt that she did her best work as part of a group. Well, listening to this changed my mind! SUPERNOVA is an exceptional hip-hop CD - it's an eclectic mix of different beats that will have you listening and dancing at the same time.

With the exception of a few cuts, this CD showcases Left Eye's amazing rap and lyrical skills in a way we probably would never see within the bounds of TLC, so if you're expecting to hear smooth stuff like "Creep" and "Waterfalls", you won't find it here. A bold statement of confidence, it seemed as if she felt she had something to prove, because she addresses some extremely personal issues in some of her raps that are very telling. She even talks about the internal troubles in the group ("I Believe In Me"), and the message pretty much expresses to her TLC sisters: "Hey, recognize...I love TLC, but I have a professional life beyond this group...don't be upset because I choose to live it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miss Supernova May 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Lisa Lopes was not just a rapper, she was a wise person and a poet and that is on full display in this album. This album is not about the beats it is a lyrical album. It is deep. The album is real, Left Eye is at her best, easily. It is great to see her shine on her own and she really does. The songs that came to mind are "Hot", "Untouchables", "a New Star is Born", "True Confessions". The show lyrical depth. "A New Star is Born" is dedicated to her late Father and talks about death and how once you leave us you become a star. There is a cute line that goes "I'm a big pop star and my Pop's is a star". The track has a weird irony, considering Lisa is now a star and is looking down on all of us.
This is a wonderful legacy for Ms. Left Eye it showed what she was about and not just being the L out of TLC. She will be missed beyond belief, her light and spirit will live on forever.
Rest In Peace

5.0 out of 5 stars Left Eye's Own Masterpiece October 8, 2004
By Anthony
Format:Audio CD
Left Eye comes out of her shell on the highly anticipated 2001 release of Supernova. After years of experimenting and wanting to step out of her group for a solo project, Left Eye finally does it. And BOY does she do it! A masterpiece among masterpieces. Left Eye had a more typical rap/hip-hop outlook for the album until her spiritual journey began which prompted the twist the album took and ended up being the outcome. An album of 13 different messages and stories, Left Eye hits the world like no one expected, the way she should. Every song on the album has a different feel, message/story, and emotion. From a wild neighborhood get-down on the album's first single, "The Block Party," to an aggressive self-proclamation with no modesty on "Hot!", to a personal spirit journey filled with questions on "The Universal Quest," to a personal conversation with her deceased father on "A New Star Is Born," Left Eye does it all. A must own album for all those who have open ears and an open heart. Left Eye does not disappoint.

It is quite obvious that lisa left eye lopes didn't care about the masses all she cared about was creativity and good music! This complex lp amplifies that in more than several ways. It is quite clear who were the innovators of TLC ..(Dallas Austin and Lisa Lopes.) After hearing TLC's last collection entitled 3D it was clear that it was no FANMAIL. "SuperNova" is a pure example that the music industry doesnot appreaciate creativity anylonger, all they want to promote is candy coated tunes. This Cd wasn't released nor promoted in the U.S. Why? because it was too far ahead of what is going on over here in HipHop! This is a fun Cd it takes me back when Hip Hop was fun and not about how much Gold and Cars and women you have. The Production ranges anywhere from Soft rock tunes to Hard futuristic beats. The egyptian "Let me Live" is an amazing track. "HOT" is a futuristic track with a rock influence. Then you have "I believe in Me" that is saying a message and has a fat "MC lyte" vibe to it! "I believe in Me" is just simply saying she doesn't need TLC, they need her. Then you have "A new star is born" and "Universal Quest" that are merely Trip Hop tracks. If anyone doesn't know about "TRIP HOP" it is an advanced Futuristic,Laid back,electronica artform of music that is mainly popular in Europe. And when I heard "Esthero" (Trip Hop Artist) feat on "Universal Quest" I knew he had done her homework. Then you have a (Unlisted Track)Called "Breathe" that is highly experimental. Then the cruising "Jenny" is so cool to ride to and fun. "Block Party" has such a feel good and bummpin' sound the bongo's and drum patterns are so complex. Read more ›

Lisa showcases some of the best rap the female rap industry has ever heard. If you don't mind her storytelling poetic lapses (which I don't) then you'll be just fine. Read more
