|Audio CD, Import, June 2, 2009||
2009 release which marks the triumphant return of the British Soul vocalist. After 22 years in the business and five albums under her belt, critics are hailing Born Again the album of her career. This collection of songs perfectly showcases the vocals of the UK's Soul Queen, vocals that have been admired and beloved by music legends such as Prince, Peter Gabriel, Dave Gilmour, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, and Natalie Cole. Blending classic Motown grooves with a distinctly modern production and emotive lyrics, Mica is singing from the bottom of her heart. This is no more evident than on the albums title track. `Born Again' an epic ballad, sweeping strings and cut glass arrangement with a vocal that leaves you tingling. 12 tracks.

Unlike many, I followed her every since. I love her smokey low ranged voice. Time has not eroded her voice. In fact, I find that she has gotten better with her latest release, "Born Again". Her acoustic remake of "My One Temptation" and a live recording of "Summertime" further reveal that she is true talent without the hype. The cover shot pic of her is hot. Strike a pose! Mica Paris is "BORN AGAIN".
Her vocals are powerfull and so intimate you have the impression you're making love when listening to it.
And she should be considered as a pop singer as well not only an R&B performer.
I am just concerned that this album does not get the midia she deserves!
Have it! it will be a soundtrack on your life!
The star of this CD is her voice. It's gotten so much deeper & soulful. It is a shame that this isn't available in the US (BUY THE IMPORT!!!). The standouts here are The Hardest Thing (sounds like it should have been on Soul Classics CD), Born Again, Hold On and Nothing But The Truth. If you aren't shouting along with the crowd at the end of Summertime, check your pulse. There is not one bad song or filler on this CD. This is the CD of the year.
