5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Relevant!, July 13, 2007
This review is from: Ghetto Cyrano (Audio CD)
Here it is 10 years after this CD was first released and I am just hearing of these guys. Thank goodness for Amazon Lists! This CD sounds as if it were very recently produced. This says at least one thing about it; it's timeless. So much so that were it released today and actually marketed, it would be an instant hit! This is THE CD that has intergenerational appeal! If you like good music, weather it be slow jams, up-tempo, 70's r and b essence, and/or progressive conscience music, this is it. It is all here and is divided into well-thought out chapters. Here is Marvin Gaye meets, Maxwell, meets Nas. Their rendition of "I Want to Get Next to You" is true to the original with creative touches that only enhances it. Every song has something to offer. The music is original and the vocal style exquisitely silky while maintaining street credibility. The lyrics are fresh and refreshing. Some tell stories of urban city violence born out of desperation, without glorifying it. While others are very sensual, yet respectful professions of their love and desire for their women. This is indeed, as another reviewer has stated, today's What's Going On. This is most evident on "Come to Me" and "Full of Smoke." "Soon" is a powerful anthem to and about future love whenever/however/ with whomever it manifests. "Bring Back Your Love," will remind some of Baby Face's earlier/best songs. There is not ONE song on Ghetto Cyrano that I dislike. If you pay 15.00 for this CD, you would be getting it at a steal! But at these discounted prices all over the Net, just buy several them and give them as gifts and watch the thank yous pour in for your having helped others discover and enjoy such a gem!
