Editorial Reviews

Fronted by Jada Pinkett Smith and backed by a live band whose resume displays a weaith of live and recorded projects. Wicked Wisdom has given birth to a sound that cannot be confined in a single genre. This powerful music is the soundtrack to revolutions and pulses with an appeal so broad the typical boundries of our societies fall by the wayside. 100 % Womon. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stole the show away from Sevendust March 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I recently saw these guys open up for Sevendust in Madison, WI and they absolutely stole the show. There were four opening bands, three of which were completely forgetable. At the time I knew nothing about them. To me they were just another opening band I had to sit through. It wasn't until the next day I found out who the singer is. I don't care if she is Will Smith's wife, they've been given nothing except a foot in the door. They're having to work their way up the ranks just like every other band out there. You might have an argument if she was no good, but she is. She can sing as well as any other metal singer, and she knows how to perform on stage like not many can. And to dismiss this band because of their association to Smith is to take a lot of credit away from the other musicians, who are nothing short of amazing. The guitarist as just as good as Slipknot's. And the drummer definitely knows his rhythms. Wicked Wisom absolutely stole the show from Sevendust who was completely flat and showing their age and total lack of hunger. Give them a shot and I think you'll really like them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent but well done. March 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I think they've done a very good job considering they're new. Although they seem to know which direction they want to go, I recognized the sounds of other bands in them. For example, the song titled 'Don't Hate Me', reminds me of Evanessence's 'Wake Me Up'. I did like the second song, 'Something Inside of Me' because Jada sounds like she really means what she's saying...I myself feel that way about psychopath's preying on young girls. Some of the songs sound a bit contrived but I think if they stay true to who they are they'll do fine. I love the music in 'Forgiven' 'cause it shows they have a sound of their own. I tink they are awesome and deserve some credit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Job! July 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I think that everyone else who rated this album were extremely harsh and a little rude. Give her a chance. She has potential and it's awesome that she's into this genre of music. She breaks the stereotypes and I think that in itself is a very bold and brave move on her part. I think it sounded great regardless of how "weak" or whatever everyone says her vocals are. Lots of people have first cds that aren't so great, but that doesn't mean there's not room for improvement. Apparently they were good enough for a record label to sign them! Rock on Jada!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Female fronted rap-metal done properly September 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Firstly I can't think of any other metal bands fronted by a black woman so kudos for that. I may be wrong who know's. People are just dissing it coz it's big willies wife. You don't know what she's into she might have the biggest metal cd collection in the world and she could afford it too. This is for fans of otep, early kittie, tura satana & my ruin. If eighteen visions were fronted by a woman they'd sound similar to WW. Her vocals are great theres some brilliant druming & guitar work on here. If you're a fan of any of the above bands. Ignore peoples jealous remarks & check this out.

3.0 out of 5 stars 4 * for the musicians, 2 * for jada = avg band February 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I heard "something inside of me" on the radio a couple of weeks ago and decided at that time to purchase the cd when it was released. I really enjoyed the band throughout the cd, unfortunately, jada's vocals are weak in my opinion. It was a good attempt and I can tell she may have the rage and angst required to perform this style of music, but she doesn't have any vocal range.

I do want to mention that I really enjoy track #4, I can live with the vocals for this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars FREE your MINDDDD! September 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought this just to add to my celebrity song collection, and wouldn't you believe it, there is actual substance to this album. I came in half expecting something akin to a celebrity book (75% ghostwritten/assisted), but I was wowed by the amount of heart and effort by Ms. Smith. The rigors of rock n' roll life may not mesh well with la vida Hollywood, but maybe this band can get by with minimal touring. Steely Dan is a good example of a studio band that doesn't really need to tour.

The track that stands out is "Something inside of Me".

This album is light years ahead of "Body Count"!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Rockin' August 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
What is up with all the dissin? Jada's voice is strong and who would have believed it from such a small package. She can rock and anyone who doesn't think so doesn't know metal when they hear it. Something Inside Of Me is the best!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD rocks! March 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Exackly.....I'm not really a fan of heavymetal, but when I heard this whole CD, I was blown away by their rhythem arrangments, the vocal abilities...everything about the group is awesome. Initially, I bought her very first CD that had her back-up singers (good CD) and when this heavymetal tune came about, I was skeptical.....This cd is worth your hard earned dollars. They really got me into heavymetal music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jada Pinkett rocks!
Jada Pinkett's talents on the screen are matched by her talents on stage with her band. Hopefully more music will eventually be forthcoming from this group.
