Kaleidoscope Dream A great cd from promising artist Miguel
on March 8, 2013
Kaleidoscope dream was a great find spurred on by the sucess of the single
Adorm.The cd takes you on bold artistic journey that at first comes off as ego driven and almost pompous.Yet when compared to the other music on the African Ameican radio stations is nothing short of genius.Miguel is an artist in the best sense of the word as he stretches his muscles throughout the cd.If you're looking for excitement and the big bang, you won't find it on this collection.What you will find is a slow burning grove that sometimes reminds me of Marvin Gaye and Prince in their more mellow moments.The lead track and hit single" Adorn" is amazing and so is" Do You".There are a few stands outs such as the lighthearted "kaleidoscope Dream" and the almost comical " the Pussy is mine".Yet if there is one thing lacking is there's not more like "Adorn".
This is not a hip Hop album, which makes it all the more interesting.Miguel seems to be aiming more at a progressive R&B audience.His vocals are great and his writing seems well above average when compared with the other acts his age.I highly reccomend this Cd to anyone intrested in a low keyed soulful grove.I will definetely be looking out for Miguel's work in the future
since I believe he just may dominate the popular music charts if he continues in this direction.
