Editorial Reviews

In a triumphant return to her trademark neo-soul, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Angie Stone releases her 2012 album on Saguaro Road Rhythm. On her 6th studio project Angie explores all aspects of being a Rich Girl. The 15-tracks have skintight grooves, funky vibes and a beautiful mélange of sounds. It's a measure of an artist who has mastered her own identity and left nothing to chance. With Rich Girl, the neo-soul songwriter has done just that, delivering a powerfully intimate collection of songs that wrap themselves around you like a warm embrace full of love and compassion, strength and wit.

Angie Stone has given herself completely on this album. She explores the realities of what makes us sad,weak, embittered, strong, passionate, powerful, and alive. No matter what stage you are in your life you can relate to something in this work of art. This is truly my favorite of all her expressions. Angie...thank you for allowing the world to see how triumph can be born from disappointment; you have a positive vibe that breathes life into each day through your music.

Thank you for sharing that with us.

I highly recommend this album.

Angie Stone has captivated devoted neo-soul/soul music fans for years with her music. Fighting through being underrated compared to the likes of India.Arie, Erykah Badu, and even a youthful Alicia Keys, Stone always possessed the voice where her commercial endeavors fell short of where they should've been. Stone, despite commercial shortcomings (and being in her 30s when her first solo album materialized in 1999's Black Diamond) managed two gold albums (Black Diamond and 2001's Mahogany Soul), as well as some notable hits in R&B circles ("No More Rain In This Cloud," "Brotha," "U-Haul," and "Baby" amongst them). 2012's Rich Girl plays very much like your typical Angie Stone album, only there is a bit of a downgrade with the 'swagger.' While Stone has always had anachronistic tendencies, she usually pulls off this 'old with the new' extremely confidently off-setting the 'vintage' nature. This independent release comes off too safe, too conservative, and lacks the 'excitability' and 'vivaciousness' that other Stone albums present.

Overall the material is solid, though even the best cuts are safe. "Do What U Gotta Do" proceeds after a pointless intro, and is more notable in the context of this album than it was as somewhat of a bland, safe single. It is not 'the second coming' by any means, but it stands out amongst such a safe set.

Over the years I've been impressed by what I've heard from Angie Stone. That is,what I've heard on a couple tribute albums and duets with other artists. One of the only reasons that I never bothered with an Angie Stone album until this point is because I kept asking myself what Angie had to offer that Jill Scott,Chrissette Michelle and Lalah Hathaway couldn't. Of course that would imply I expected every artist to be 100% original. Realizing my short sighted frame of mind I decided to to see for myself,within the context of the neo soul genre more over then the artist,what she had to offer creatively. I'm rather surprised by the results.

This album does offer a lot of variety. It has a handful of fairly ordinary neo soul type songs on "Do What You Gotta Do",the title song and the blunted jazz-hop flavored "Alright" Of course it's on songs such as "Backup Plan","Livin' It Up","Right In From Of Me" and "U Lit My Fire" that really excite me,and that's a good chunk of the album right there. These four numbers are rhythmically strong funk era friendly dance numbers with strong hooks,vocal harmonies and excellent use of modern production techniques for tunes that could easily be retro exercises. "I Can't Take It" brings in this heavier proto funk polyrhythm flavor to the proceedings,sort of a cross between James Brown and what the late Amy Winehouse was going for.

Angie concludes the album with the harmonically and melodically complex "Sisters". With lyrics that range from romantically sassy to touchingly personal,including the mildly self promotional spoken word interlude from Malcolm Jamal Warner,this album does an excellent job at portraying the many hues of Angie Stone's soulful musical rainbow.

As a fan of Angie when I was 12 years younger, her music fit that time, soaring above her contemporaries and giving a mature nod to progressive neo-soul music. 12 years later, Angie Stone's music matures before our eyes and delivers a grown up example of her previous work. I found the vast majority of this album to be great listening and enjoyable. Reminds me of what a more mature DeAngelo would sound like. There is nothing "just safe" about this album as I read on a previous review here. That is just totally wrong and gave me pause before I bought it. This offering is rich lyrically and musically. "Guilty" is far and away my favorite track; I swear I hear DeAngelo in the background ;-). The mix of uptempo, slow and toe tapping songs are perfect for those looking for currently relevant R&B/Neo-Soul. I highly recommend this album for those who are not into the synthetic auto-tuned effects of today's R&B.

The thing I love about Angie Stone is when you listen to every track you are listening to a sister with a beautiful strong voice. Soul Music is not a term you hear any more but you hear the soul in Angie Stones voice just like it shown through on Aretha Franklin or Gladys Night. There is not a track where the soul is not present and as an added treat Malcolm Jamal Warner lays down a nice bit of poetry that fits the groove perfectly.
