Other than that I can't say much about this album. I haven't been a much of a fan of American music for about 2 or 3 years. Some of the songs are good some of them are pretty bad...
We now interrupt this review for a News Story...
Hikki, or rather the name she likes better in the America biz, Hikaru Utada, has signed a contract with Island Def Jam, a division of Universal Music Group. According to Japanese news sources, Hikaru will apparently record an album and it will be released nationwide.
Now back to the review...
Anyways, Hikaru Utada becomes the single Asian on this album and sings in English. Unfortunately, this song isn't quite as good as her Japanese works or even her rendition of "Fly Me To The Moon", which was featured on the "Wait & See ~Risk~" single. Her vocals seem faded and behind the music/rapping/background vocals unlike most of her Japanese work. Her vocals also seem weak, unassertive and uninspired as well. As far as I can tell, she didn't write the song either. Overall, this isn't one of the centerpieces of Hikaru's works and this album is not an essential buy for the Hikki fan. I, personally, can only hope that she follows her own path in her music writing, since her abilities are much better than it has been illustrated in this song...
P.S. If you're wondering what the song's words are when it starts out it's:
"It seems like yesterday we used to rock the floor..."
Ludacris - This song, though admittedly ..., is definitely catchy. It's simplistic and funny, and that's really where its strengths lie.
Montell Jordan - Jordan's created another danceable joint. It's not his best, but its uptempo beats keep the CD banging. He's got the voice that makes the ladies swoon. If you've got a hot date, put this track at the front of the tape to set the sexy mood for the rest of the night.
Meth/T.R. - The original rumpshaker and Meth get together to pop off gibberish about party M.C.ing. This is one of the hottest tracks on the album and is definitely able to get a party jumping. Yo TR, what's that ish you on?
Kandice Love - A throwback to the golden age of R&B, this song is about getting yourself together and telling that bad bad man "NO"! Very cool song. Sing along and you'll find yourself doing the Ricki Lake "Talk to the hand" maneuver.
Keith Murray - The best song on the album. You've got three and a half minutes of blindingly fast lyrics blasting out of this M.C. BTW, whatever happened to "Word is bond"?
Jazz - Jill Scott is off the hook. What else can be said about this song? The only snag in this lovely tapestry is the extraneous guitar noise. A little less of that and this might have been one of the best songs on the CD.
Musiq/Redman - As much as I'm a big fan of Redman, this track was not one of his best. The singing of Musiq is mediocre and Redman's rhymes are not up to snuff. With other stellar tracks available, this one gets drowned out.
LL Cool J - The man's been around for years and, unlike other old school rappers, he still keeps coming with freshness.Read more ›
