Very good easy listening album!
suzette williams
Every time she releases new music, "Lovers In the Park", "Locked In Closets", "Sleep In the Park", "Losing You" & "Bad Girls" are my jams.
Terrance P. Barnes
Solange's voice is so beautiful and all her own.

Solange (sister of Beyoncé) is definitely the 'hipster' of the Knowles family. This eclectic side first appeared on her 2008 critically acclaimed (though underrated) Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, which featured popular single "I Decided". Unfortunately, Solange didn't gain the traction she should from that major label effort and finds herself opting for the indie route on 2012's EP True, which appears on Chris Taylor's (of Grizzly Bear) label, Terrible Records. While Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams focused more on the 70s stylistically, True promotes itself as an alternative-R&B effort with stylistic cues from the 80s. No less unique, True is an interesting listening. It never reaches the grandeur of its predecessor and at times may play too much into 'hipness', but the ideas are all notable and worth of praise, even where execution falls short. Solange co-writes each song with Dev Hynes.

"Losing You" opens the EP with a busy percussive groove that instantly recalls 80s dance. The instrumental intro last :50, allowing plenty of time for things to gel. Not merely a dance cut (if you would even categorize it this way), "Losing You" is an alt-R&B cut with some dance cues/groove. The well-penned, catchy chorus is repeated four times during it duration, including initially before the verse: "Tell me the truth boy, am I losing you for good / we use to kiss all night but now it's just no use..." There are two verses, both spacey and mysterious.

In commercial circles,Solange Knowles continues to remain very much under the shadow of her older sister Beyonce'. In musical/creative circles,it's a whole other matter entirely. Her 2008 release Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams was very much an enormous word of mouth and critical favorite. Sadly,there was also the factor among Beyonce' haters (which I am not,by the way) who used the album to musically pit one sister up against the other in terms of quality and talent. Solange has really held her own under such scrutiny. And on this,an EP that marks her first output of new music since that breakthrough,she still continues to impress.

Musical inspired very heavily by 1980's production values,she starts out the album with what I feel is it's strongest tracks,the danceable and rhythmically powerful "Losing You"-featuring a tonal cash crop of synthesized percussive effects right out of the early 80's P-Funk bag. "Some Things Never Seem To _______Work" (a title I did have to edit some to print it) reflects the mid 80's "contempo" Motown girl group type revival,very much pointing to some of Madonna's mid 80's pop hits. "Locked In Closets","Look Good With Trouble" and "Don't Let Me Down" very much have the effect of stripped down early Minneapolis type funk grooves. "Lovers In A Parking Lot" is a somewhat more modern song instrumentally but still has that 80's production.

The closer "Bad Girls" (not the Donna Summer classic) has a very glittery 80's urban contemporary flavor to it,and features the bass playing of Earth Wind & Fire's Verdine White to boot.

Beyonce's little sister is a genius! When I hear something by Solange, I can almost guarantee that it will be completely refreshing. I was a huge fan of "Sol-Angel & the Hadley street Dreams", and it was probably the best album experience of that year...and "True" doesn't disappoint. It brings the same elements of soul, with some crazy unique production. It has an 80's vibe groove that is sure to get you nodding your head, and Solange's voice sounds sweet over the beats. I think Solange may have found the Timbaland to her Aaliyah, the Rich Harrison to her Amerie in Devonté Hynes. I can't wait to hear a whole album by these two.

This EP came and walked away leaving me wanting more from her lol! It was pretty good. There maybe could have been more upbeat tracks like Losing You because most of the album was moody and about heartbreak...however...

Locked In Closets is a jam, the live tribal drumming added intensity. Don't Let Me Down also is another number that flows very well within the album. The songs in general do not hold you with a chorus so much however so you have to keep replaying them to remember what they sound like; especially when only one song kind of has a chorus to it (Losing You). This EP though is much different than the Dreams album previously and is very dreamy / sparse. It makes it one of the best EPs that came out in 2012.
