Format: Audio CD
Des'ree is most famous for her single, "You Gotta Be" off of her sophomore album "I Ain't Moving". Very few people have heard of this British RnB singer whose music has influences of reggae and even calypso. Des'ree has a beautiful, rich voice that adds a lot to her music. Like India Arie, Des'ree gives positive messages in her music however Des'ree makes music that is a little more accessible to pop/RnB fans since her songs are more upbeat than India Arie's. Des'ree, though a great singer and artist, does not get much airplay in Canada, which is too bad because several of her songs are wonderful. Des'ree infuses a positive message and/or meaningful lyrics into all of her songs while still making them catchy enough to stick in the listener's head.
The little-known album, "Dream Soldier", kicks off with "It's Okay" an uplifting song that states that everything will be okay, despite the fact that everything may be going wrong that day. ("Another day your late for work, the shower's cold you ain't got no clean shirt"). Lyrically, this song it far from the best on the album but it does give a nice introduction to the positive themes that stay constant throughout the album. Following this comes the inquisitive "Why?" in which Des'ree asks why her man is making her "blue." The second verse has good lyrics that can apply to many situations. ("You don't wanna talk about it, say I'm crazy and it's all inside my head"). The only downside to this song is Des'ree sings about being sad, but she sounds truly happy when she sings this song.
Afterwards comes the vocally enchanting "Righteous Night". The lyrics are somewhat confusing but the song sounds great nonetheless. ("It was a righteous night, and I slept with all my eyes").

This is a magnificent CD that shows Des'ree continues to be a powerful vocalist, incredible songwriter, and a true artist who does not adhere to the rules of predetrian R&B or commercial pop. While it is a shame that radio has refused to pay her the respect that she deserves, it is somewhat good that she remains non-mainstream, it allows her to be honest to her own artistry and to continue exploring ther sounds of her spirituality.
Buy this CD if you enjoy jazz, neo-soul, beautiful melodies and vocals. Listen to it several times, don't dismiss it after a casual play. You will be happy once you discover its true greatness.

If you like music that puts a smile on your face then this is for you. Des'ree never seizes to amaze me with her simplistics lyrics and luscious melodies. Truly classic Desree!
