2.0 out of 5 stars Double Tapped Out, July 30, 2015
This review is from: Double Tap [Clean] (MP3 Music)
It has been quite awhile since we have had any new music from Jordin Sparks. Musically, her heart has been elsewhere from acting with the great Whitney Houston in Sparkle, and being engaged to Jason Derulo. But honestly, the engagement ended abruptly after several months. He had a lot of work, but his career rose, and her career was a stand still. But honestly, she has tried to return again with work, from her post-American Idol era fame. Sadly, the work has not really brought out the best in her own work. Double Tap, the lead single from her 3rd album Right Here, Right Now with rapper 2 Chainz is honestly one of her weakest songs at heart and voice. I found her trying to capture a younger audience in the way others who have been severely overexposed like Beyonce' Knowles and Rihanna doesn't actually ignite at all. I think that Jordin has a nice voice, but honestly has not had the strength in songs to deliver. This song should be double tapped away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grilling: New Age, July 29, 2015
There is honestly so much that can be said about a great electric grill. There are so many of them, from Cuisinart's Griddler to the classic and definitive George Forman classic grill. But honestly, there have been so many great grills on the market, without using the classic appeal that can be used on the stove top. But honestly, they all drive in the same way. So, when I dear hear about Tfal, and their Optgrill, I was honestly very skeptical to see whether it not it works just as well or even better than the other grills on the market, and truthfully, I was very surprised. It is very simple and easy to setup. But you do have to keep it plugged in, and take a few minutes to place your food on the grill, so the device has to preheat before use. It is simple to setup, and tells you exactly how the food comes out, well done, rare and medium, with several different programs designed for chicken, burgers, fish and meat. But, what I do wish they could have improved on with the grill is that, it would have beeped much louder, to exactly tell you how your food is doing. Still, it does mostly work like a charm, and definitely worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boosting Slim, July 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is honestly so much that I have loved about Boost. They have had really good energy drinks that have definitely been great supplements for me and my whole family. But honestly, with all the nutrition, they have wanted to take a step back and try to do something in the way with what Slim-Fast had done for so many years, and try to make a leaner drink line for your life. This honestly is a nice stepping stone with their 100 calorie smart nutritional drink tastes not too shabby, and has just as much taste as the regular line of nutritional supplemental drinks. What I do like about it is that they do taste great in chocolate drinks. The sincere bad news is that you only get 4 bottles, rather than 6 unlike their lines of other drinks from their supplemental line. Still, they do taste great for the money, but I do wish that more could have been done for the money alone with this one that could have been more of a boost.

Citizen Men's AT2060-52E Chronograph Eco Drive Watch
Offered by Studio Jewelers
Price: $337.50

3.0 out of 5 stars Stopwatch, July 28, 2015
There is honestly so much that can be said about great watches with Citizen Eco-Drive. They have had so many great watches with their Eco-Drive line for years, but honestly they have lagged a bit with their Drive collection. But they have had some good watches, but other one have looked with better with age and with strength. This silver-tone chronograph timepiece actually has great illumination, easy-to-setup date and time and good water resistance. This chronograph looks very nice, but unfortunately, this watch does lose a lot of ground in its look. First of all, the date window is a dash bigger and bulkier than the 24 hour sub-dial and the minute sub-dial as well. Not only that, there is a fourth sub-dial to where the chronograph arrow begins, which can complicate the watch a bit. Still, it is a nice watch from Citizen, but overall, there are better chronographs from their Eco-Drive line, and I do suggest you shop around.

My Love Is Your Love (Radio Edit)
My Love Is Your Love (Radio Edit)
Offered by SONY Music Entertainment Downloads LLC.
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Krissie, July 27, 2015
It is just honestly such a sadness whenever we see a young child dying very early without a lot of love. Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston's only pride and joy dying at 22 years old, and just a lot of heartbreak and sadness. She really believed in love, whenever and whenever she looked at her only mom, the great Whitney Houston. Whenever I think of Whitney and her only baby, I think of My Love Is Your Love, which Whitney recorded back in 1998, and see the simplicity and the beauty between mother and daughter. It was Krissie's first recording when she was only 5 years old, and the song is uplifting and a sincere sentiment of joy that still hits me in the soul of the heart. Wyclef Jean really made a beautiful song that still sounds much better than the jokes of music today. May Bobbi Kristina Brown rest in peace, and be with the only one she ever loved in her eyes, her mama Whitney Houston.

Bobbi Kristina Brown: 1993-2015

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Right Now, July 26, 2015
This review is from: Right Here Right Now (MP3 Music)
It has been awhile since we have heard anything new from Jordin Sparks. After her American Idol success, she has had a bit more of a struggle trying to follow up with her first record. Honestly, she has not even had the strongest set of songs to really ignite her in the way that other Idol alumni like Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood. But honestly, she has had luck with films and stage like Sparkle with the great Whitney Houston, and Broadway with In The Heights. But musically, it has not been there. After Double Tap, which was intended to be a stab at her ex-fiancee Jason Derulo, but also being a poor song at her heartbreak. Right Here, Right Now, the second single, and the title track from her third album is a short song, but also a song that doesn't show growth in Jordin's voice and heart. I found this song to be weaker at the soul, and from her voice. She doesn't show to mature after Idol, just weak at the soul. Jordin should really find better with her next single.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wallflower, July 25, 2015
It has been a very long time since we have really anything driven from Ciara. Musically, she has had a lot going wrong for her in her own albums, not only they have been very poor, but they absolutely have failed to ignite on sales. She has really rushed her music out so much that she has really faltered in her own work. Her songs have not really simply done very well. Her last album Ciara, has failed to ignite in sales, and with the over-releasing early songs, she just has left less for her fans. For what has been going on for her Jackie record, has shown she really has to find better for her own voice and motherhood. This isn't the 2000 decade anymore. Dance Like We're Making Love, the second single from Jackie fails to ignite a passion that can make you dance from the soul, just a whimper to become a wallflower. I found this song to be just as lackluster as I Bet was. It is definitely time for Ciara to consider retiring from music, if she keeps making poor songs like this one did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Haunted?, July 24, 2015
This review is from: Ghost Town [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
It has been a very long time since we have heard anything new from Adam Lambert. While he has had some good songs from For Your Entertainment, he has not been able to definitely follow-up to his success from American Idol after his debut record. It honestly has been a very tough ride overall, but it has been a stepping stone. Still, he has a whole lot to find better for his own work, than trying to be a sound-alike to George Michael. His latest song shows to be more of a haunting rhythm, but not anything outrageous. Ghost Town, the lead single from his third album The Original High, is not anything that really ignites afire from the heart. The song doesn't actually ignite they way that he did with What Do You Want From Me from his past. I really do think Adam needs to have a sound that is more driven from the soul after Idol, and he not been able to have something more strong that made it more like a haunting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Snake Eyes Bomb, July 23, 2015
This review is from: 7/11 (MP3 Music)
There is honestly a difference between a songstress, and a singer who has really been overexposed to where their music is not even worth listening to anymore, because they are severely overplayed and overexposed. Unfortunately, Beyonce' Knowles is one of those singers, who has came off more like a product than a real songstress of the heart. Sadly, the quality of her music has slowly passed away from the heart, and instead she has just relied on the severe over-demand of bigger has to be better, just like Michael Jackson did. Unfortunately, the quality of her work has caused her to lose her voice at the heart of the matter. Her songs like 7/11 from her Beyonce' Platinum Edition album have faltered badly. The song 7/11, definitely is one of her worst songs on the record, and shows that she has relied too much on being a dance diva to where her voice has suffered a setback in the soul. I found this song to be absolutely annoying, and shows the worst at her own work. Beyonce' honestly needs to grow up and find better than being a product. Her success at her own work, like her voice has died.

4.0 out of 5 stars Morning Heart, July 22, 2015
This review is from: Morning Sun (MP3 Music)
It has been quite awhile since there has been any good songs that have came out from Robin Thicke. The past few years have been more sad from his personal and professional life. From the end of his marriage to Paula Patton, to him being sued and losing for using one of Marvin Gaye's songs that made Blurred Lines, from Got To Give It Up. Also, with the lackluster status of sales for his Paula record, Robin has been more on a downward spiral in regards to his work. But he has tried to truly return with better, and his latest song is a bit more of a feeling that he can bounce back from heartbreak. Morning Sun, Robin's latest single is a bit more upbeat and stronger than most of the songs he came out for quite awhile. It does work nicely from his heart and his own work. The song definitely has a lot more heart from it, and really shows a deep shadow in his own work coming up again. Hopefully, when Robin comes out with a new album soon, there can be more great songs that can work like this one showed, as big of a heart he has gotten. It is his best song since Lost Without U.

Song: B 1/2+
