R&B: The Best Of 2002 (In Order)

J. Highsmith
 
World Outside My Window
World Outside My Window
"Although some music fans may cast him off as a Stevie Wonder wanna be, Glenn Lewis sounds like a seasoned veteran on his debut CD.   "Simple Things", "Never Too Late", and "This Love", are my favs."
Instant Vintage

"Any fan of Tony Toni Tone will love the gospel delic debut CD of Raphael Saadiq.  "Be Here" w/D'Angelo, "Still Ray", "Sky Can U Feel Me", and "Excuse Me" are my favs."
The Way I Feel
The Way I Feel
"This classic debut by the Canadian born singer will have you in a trance.   If you don't like "Take A Message" and "Burning Bridges", you have a serious problem."
Lovers Live
Lovers Live
"After hearing Sade in concert live, I definitely had to pick this CD up.  "Is It A Crime" (Live) is worth the price of this CD by itself."
Justified
Justified
"Although this is a recent release, Justin deserves to be in the 2002 countdown.  "Take It From Here", "Oh No (What You Got)", "Last Night" and "Cry Me A River" are my favs."
No More Drama
No More Drama
"Although this is a re release, Mary J started 2002 strong with "Rainy Dayz" and another one of her stellar slow jams, "He Think I Don't Know"."
Juslisen

"Musiq proved that the sophomore jinx was not for him.  "Don't Change", "Time", "Newness" and "Half Crazy" were my favs."
Fortunate
Fortunate
"With "Fortunate", Lathun has a clear winner on his hands.  The title track, "Forever One Flesh", "Miss Sally" & "When Love Came In" with India Arie are my favs."
Southern Hummingbird
Southern Hummingbird
"When she wasn't saying "Oops" or "Call Me", Tweet sounded like the sweetest southern belle on songs like "Beautiful", "Smokin Cigarettes" and "My Place".   This one is a keeper."
Floetic
Floetic
"This CD really surprised me with its tight tracks.  The Floacist and Songstress blend well together on "Sunshine", "Ms. Stress", "Getting Late", "Say Yes" and "Floetic"."
The G Spot
The G Spot
"Gerald Levert definitely hit the right spot with this CD.   "Funny", "Closure", "Oh What A Night" with Roy Ayres, and "Raindrops" are my favs."
Voyage to India
Voyage to India
"If India Arie hadn't have made another "Acoustic Soul", this would be a better CD.   However, with "Little Things", "Slow Down", "The Truth", "Get It Together" and "Good Man", India has a good 2nd CD."

"Live CD included, Jill Scott still proves that her 1st CD was not a gimmick with songs like "Gotta Get Up" and "Sweet Justice".  Her live performance of The Roots' "You Got Me" on MTV2 was phenominal."
Life Goes On
Life Goes On
"Donell Jones proves that the 3rd time was a charm with songs like "You Know That I Love You", "Still", "Where You Are", "Do U Wanna", the title track and "Guilty By Suspicion""
Tortoise & Hare
Tortoise & Hare
"Fans of the Jazzyfatnastees' debut CD will love "Something In The Way", "Adolescent Blues", "4 Lives", "Compelled" and "All Up In My Face"."
All I Have
All I Have
"Although her CD is short in length, songs like "Why Don't We Fall In Love", "Need U Tonight", "Talkin' To Me", "I Just Died" & "Nothing Like Loving You" will remind you of Mary J's 1st CD."
Full Moon
Full Moon
"Eventhough it seems like Rodney Jerkins created the blueprint for "Full Moon" when he was doing MJ's CD, songs like the title track, "Nothing" and "When You Touch Me" makes Brandy's 3rd CD a good one."
Things in the Game Done Changed
Things in the Game Done Changed
"Dave's 1st Motown CD is a good one but the production doesn't measure up to "Chicago '85 The Movie".   "Baby Do Those Things", "Tell Me Why" and "What Should I Say" are my favs."
Ashanti
Ashanti
"Ashanti is at her best when she sticks to original material.   "Rescue" and "Scared" are my 2 favorite tracks because of that, but you can't help but like her use of Scarface's "Mary Jane" on "Baby"."
Better Days
Better Days
"Joe's "Better Days" didn't measure up to "My Name Is Joe" or the stellar "All That I Am", but "Alone" is one of my favorite r&b songs for 2002."
Full Circle
Full Circle
"Boyz II Men have almost hit "The End Of The Road".   However, with songs like "Relax Your Mind", "The Color Of Love" & "Oh Well", "Full Circle" is clearly better than their last CD."
Denials Delusions and Decisions
Denials Delusions and Decisions
"While her debut CD clearly shows promise and a nice remake of Patti LaBelle's  "Love, Need, Want You", the unnecessary profanity puts a damper on things."
Truthfully Speaking
Truthfully Speaking
"Although, Ms. Truth faces a multimillion dollar sampling lawsuit, "Addictive" was one of the best r&b songs in 2002.  "I'm Not Really Looking" and "Next To Me" are gems as well. (See 22 for Profanity)"
Ecstasy
Ecstasy
"As soon as Michael Avant figures out he is not Robert Kelly he will be fine.  "Call On Me", "Don't Say No, Just Say Yes" and "One Way Street" with Charlie Wilson are my favs."
Someone to Love You
Someone to Love You
"After the first 3 songs, "Bigger" and "Look To The Hills", look forward to a CD full of unnecessary songs.   However, "Will You Be Mine" picks up the slack for that and makes this CD worth purchasing."
