Lucy pearl.......R+B trio like no other....Classic!
on May 25, 2000
This new album from lucy pearl is better than I expected it to be. If I could give this 4 1/2 stars.... I would. First, i'll let u know not to expect anything new here as in style, music, or lyrics. Instead ...expect just what you see. It's a combination of raaphael saadiq's smooth singing and retro(toni, tony, tone) production, dawns smooth, creative singing, and Ali's Tight production(as known on albums for tribe called quest, common, etc..). Ali keeps it live and on the egde mostly producing while raaphael and dawn handle everything else. Songs like "Lucy pearl tells", "trippin", "Dance tonight", "Can't stand your mother", "lala", and "You"(with snoop and tip) are songs to really check out. I have these songs constantly on repeat. The intro is tight because it combines music from all the groups they came from (Envouge, (Tone, tony, toni), and Tribe called quest) and then goes straight into trippin. This is a cd you can play straight through without skipping because it just flows one song into the next. You can tell this was mostly a free style album from the way they sing and how it flows.....music to just kick back and enjoy no matter what mood your in. Some songs you can tell Dawn wrote and others Ali or Raaphael. They each put a piece of their style and what they was feelin into this cd. If this is what Lucy pearl is starting off with, I could only imagine what else is to come.
Another must have cd for the '00. Get it!
