Editorial Reviews

This is the debut album from the So Solid Crew's first lady of garage, Lisa Maffia. Mixing the well-known So Solid production style of tuff beats & bass lines with Lisa Maffia's sweet vocals, the album adds a new dimension to the glamorous UK R&B sound. The singles 'All Over' & 'In Love' are also included. 15 tracks. Sony. 2003.

A long time coming, the debut album from So Solid Crews (The British Wu Tang Clan) main female emmcee is finally here! I got this album ... and I sure ... wasn't dissapointed. Removed from the Garage style of So solid crew, Lisa Maffia's debut album is a 'Solid' (excuse the pun) R&B effort with suprisingly little to no filler and production that can easily compete with American contemporaries if given the chance. Sure Lisa isnt a Mary J or Aaliyah, but she is more than competant, with the production masking any weakness she has in her vocal range. I recommend this album to anyone in the USA who is looking for a more dancey, lively catchy feel to their R&B, think Ashanti without the boring ballads!
1. Swiss Intro - Short rap intro from a member of So Solid Crew, he's basically wishin' her luck in her solo career. Good rap if ya like rap, if you dont, the beat might keep ya interested!
2. All over - Lead single and a big hit in the UK, one of the most American sounding R&B tunes to ever come from the UK. VERY catchy, sounds like a Jermaine Dupri type song. It'll get ya dancing
3. Women of the world - Lisa shines on this song, the production is superb, very original, but the main focus is on her lyrics, your typical 'women taking control' thing
4. Down - The first slow (compared to the others) song on the album, the production drowns out Lisa's voice on this one, Wrong sort of backing beat for this and it is a weak song anyway.
5. Wrong guys - Electronic sounding production and Lisa singing about picking the wrong types of guys. Again, good production but her voice is lost in the beats and sound effects. The hook is strong though, so the song isnt a total loss

This debut from Lisa Maffia had its ups and downs. Coming from a huge group like the So Solid Crew, it's no wonder that there were great expectations from this album. First Lady has its good and bad points.
First of all, this album has way too many appearances from her So Solid buddies to be considered a true solo. Over half the tracks feature So Solid members like Romeo, Asher D, JD, Swiss, and Harvey. Not that this is a bad thing, it just gets tiring.
The style is a great mix of strongly produced UK Garage and R&B. It's got its strong points though. The first single, All Over, is a brilliant R&B club track, but the So Solid rappers eclipse Lisa a little bit. City Life is awesome, giving a dark feel of urban street life. In Love is arguably the best track. Women of the World doesn't disappoint either.
The album does fall short at points, however. So Solid Party has got the most derranged, messed up production I've heard. The JD Interlude has no reason to be on the album; it serves no purpose. Wrong Guys is extremely disappointing. Then there is the filler: Down, Always Be Your Angel, and Super Freak. The rest of the tracks are just okay.
Overall, I'd say that First Lady was a decent effort to launch Lisa Maffia as a solo name in the music industry. The overabundance of So Solid rap kinda kills the whole solo thing. The strong production matched with Lisa's beautiful voice makes this album.
