Comparisions to Erykah Badu and D'Angelo, while accurate, fail to convey the power of Scott's expressive voice which can sound sensual or deeply spiritual on one track and have an innocent childish quality on another.
This Philly native's sometimes poetic lyrics are refreshingly honest and unique. Although much of the CD is concerned with love, she brings to the listener that urban female perspective that is just now receving airplay again after a long hiatus.
Artists like Scott are redefining soul music for a new generation and proving that one doesn't need a crew of backup dancers, a flashy image or vulgar lyrics to entertain.
The CD also contains a few "hidden tracks" that will delight the listener. I highly recommend this disk and can't wait to see her live.
Best tracks: "Exclusively", "A Long Walk", "Honey Molasses", and "Love Rain".
When she sings Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill will come to mind.. This CD hasnt left my CD player since i brought it .. Among the highlights : Do You Remember, Gettin In The Way, For my DC/MD/VA folks who may be reading this you all have to check out the track It's Love it has that sound we all know and love G0-GO the song is hot , Love Rain, Slowly Surely.. Are just some of the great songs on this great CD.. Pick this up you will love it .. Enjoy
"Who Is Jill Scott?" was released in the summer of 2000 and quickly floated towards the upper-end of the charts, swiftly garnering mass public respect and positive critical response selling 2 million copies. The album on the whole is just a beautiful and emotional experience of love. Everything that is in this album is sung exotically from the heart. Crammed with love and desire, Scott expresses her deepest, inner-most feelings in remarkable honestly and astonishing professionalism.
The album opens with "Jilltro," which is a fantastic intro to open such an accomplished album. She introduces herself with haunting vocals and echoing beats, before moving into "Do You Remember?" which is a classy and seductive slow-jam ballad. This is a vivid and soothing song that sets the standard for the rest of the album, as Jill's thick vocals slide over the heavenly beats.Read more ›
