5-0 out of 5 stars One of favorites by No Doubt...
This is a very fun album to listen to.

BND - 10/10 - Just 44 seconds of music but it kind of gives you an idea what this CD sounds like. It could make for a perfect theme song for a TV show.

Let's Get Back - 10/10 - "Let's back together Let's get back forever Let's get back together Let's get back" Very fun song. And it has a great sound.

Ache - 9/10 - "Woke up this morning and felt not too cool Ooh ooh ooh"

Get on the Ball - 8/10 - "Don't wait too long Or she'll be gone as fast as a flame" Pretty good song.

Move On - 10/10 - My favorite song on the album. "You have to understand that when it comes to making music We meshed the styles of five alive and intertwined and fused it"

Sad for Me - 10/10 - Another one my favorites. Such a renaissance sounding song. "He said please don't be sad for me"

Doormat - 10/10 - "I'm not your doormat Your floormat So don't wipe your feet on me" A really good song.

Big City Train - 9/10 - Very talk show sounding music OR night-time detective show sounding music. "You'll always find me waiting for the train to come through"

Trapped in a Box - 10/10 - Another favorite. "You're trapped in a box of tremendous size It distorts my vision It closes my eyes"

Sometimes - 10/10 - Great song. Like, an almost heart to heart to talk with oneself. "Sometimes sunshine does not want to shine on me"

Sinking - 9/10 - A very broadway-sounding song. But, still great to listen to.

Little Something Refreshing - 10/10 - Just one of those nonsense songs artists are entitled to.

Paulina - 9/10 - Another fun song. "Paulina She's on the cover of Book Magazine Paulina A woman in my nightly dream"

Brand New Day - 10/10 - A perfect song to end the album on. "At the end of the day You are worn out You are worn out And too tired to sleep But the you do dream of wonderful things That you might do right on through to the next day"

4-0 out of 5 stars Fresh Sound
It seems as if the debut No Doubt record was not a big seller. How I will never know as the high energy rhythms combined with creative horn and keyboard arrangements make it a very enjoyable listen. The tunes are extremely ear friendly. Trapped In The Box is probably the most familiar tune as I just love Gwen Stefani's power and range.

Many other highlights exist as well. Sad For Me actually has some unusual klezmer influences with the quirky organ/accordion mixed in with the brass. The brass is very prominent on Doormat. The gutiar stylings and drumming mix very well on that track as well as several others. Paulina is another noteworthy track. Love the vocal harmonies and arrangment here.

I could go on and on about the different songs but the overall sound is so refreshing. Mix in some new wave drive, some delightful ska styled horns, some catchy melodies with some varying special effects and you have a delightful CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars What???????
Is this no doubt you mighgt say the first time you hear this! If you are a new no doubt fan and you like the new stuff like rocksteady and the singles cd which is good music, you might not like this. My favorite is the singles but this is great ska music and so is the beacon street collection. At first I didnt like it but its fun to see how gwens voice changes, I love Lets get back, its the best song, trapped in a box, ache, and brand new day are also good songs. get this if you like no doubt or/and ska. Give it a chance. 5 star ... Read more

Editorial Review

On their 1997 release, Dude Ranch, juvenile hardcore-pop band Blink 182 tickled the funny bone with an assortment of dumb sex jokes, off-color artwork, and between-song skits, including one of a dog drinking from a freshly peed in toilet. So, two years down the road, have the band matured at all? One look at the cover of Enema of the State, which features cover art of a tarted-up blonde nurse donning a rubber glove, provides the easy answer. Fortunately, Enema supports the humor with strong musicianship. The songs are more dynamic and multitempoed than those on Dude Ranch, sounding like a cross between the Descendents and Fountains of Wayne. And unlike the glut of alt-rock releases that offer one or two memorable songs, Enema is flush with instantly memorable melodies and ear-pleasing harmonies. Good, dirty fun--no more, no less. --Jon Wiederhorn ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Why Did Blink Have To Get TRL Friendly?
Anyone who has ever heard Buddha, Cheshire Cat, or Dude Ranch, before Blink 182 became famous, knows that Enema is a punk letdown. Great songs like Wasting My Time, M+M's, Dammit,are replaced by stuff like All The Small Things. It's not bad to get more fans, but when these new fans are 5 year-olds and girls that think Blink is 'cute', have they really succeeded all that much?. I mean, com'on, MTV turned the band around from being a snotty punk band into a snotty poppy/punkish band. Fame does not always mean progress, especially when it means letting down your group of core fans that didn't care about fame, looks, and appealing to everyone so that stuff actually gets radio friendly. Look at Good Charlotte and SR-71; now famous bands (thanks to MTV), but just more punk posers that look more like boy bands than rock bands. When you start hearing What's My Age Again? on a pop radio station, there's bound to be problems. Granted, the CD isn't all that bad, but it sure is a change from the norm. When Scott Raynor was still Blink's drummer, these guys were kickin' and could rock, and rock they did. When I heard The Enema Strikes Back though, I was disturbed to find that all the chearing from the crowd seemed like girly pre-teens. Again, more fans, but not what you'd expect, even if the live rendition of Dammit was awesome. Going Away to College is not a bad song, nor is What's My Age Again?, but they are more pop than punk. The Party Song, while being the fastest on the disk and having funny lyrics, still doesn't have much substance to it. Everyone hails Adam's Song as being the most serious song of Blink 182, which it is, and it's not bad, but if you think the band matured at all with this song at all, haha, think again. Blink 128 doesn't have to grow up at all, but I hope their next effort returns to their roots of a power punk band that plays for the fans and not MTV. If you want to get into Blink 182 without actually hearing their punk side, get this CD, like many of today's MTV lovin' youth have; you'll go nuts over it. But if you want to hear Blink 182's best, get their earlier stuff, with Scott Raynor, and hear what led up to the CD that brought about Blink's fame. They have the fame, they might have the money, but now it's time to take a break from that all and get down to music making better music. Since this is basically Blink's latest studio recording, tide over your appetite for punk with some The Starting Line, TAking Back Sunday, or Thursday, and hear what some awesome bands that don't get on MTV or pop radio sound like. Then ask yourself, is this CD Blink 182's best?

5-0 out of 5 stars More than just 3 chords!
Enema of the state is a highly catchy 90's punk album, which is much more radio friendly than early Blink182. Some may say they have sold out but they have reach a whole new audience with this record. I also feel their music has matured. Sure this album doesn't sound as raw as previous creations but there are still some classics. Mutt, Dumpweed and Whats My age again are my favourite songs but All the small things and Aliens exist are not too far behind.

Die hard punk fans my turn a head to this album but it still doesn't detract to a band producing something similar to Green day and Off Spring in the past. My favourite Blink 182 song is still Dammit but come on give the guys a break. They have produced an album with kick and punch with more than just 3 chord wonders. There is progression and maturity also.

Enema has a sound which will be heard on MTV and radio A LOT but who cares? Does that make it a bad punk ablum? Hell, All the small things reached number 2 in the British charts - before that they were unheard of - wider audience means more music fans being influenced - with fans of many genres.

This album doesn't wear off in a hurry and the catchy songs and riffs are a joy to hear.

Go Blink 182!

Editorial Review

Like Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez has entered the singing-dancing-acting zone of the bona fide superstar and has developed an ego to match her talents.J. Lo, the follow-up to her multiplatinum 1999 debut On the 6, makes little attempt to tinker with the Latina-soul formula that record patented, employing an army of coproducers and writers (including partner Puffy) to assemble a slick 15-track affair. If anything, Lopez's sound is safe, even retro, with some tracks looking back to the 1980s--particularly the Michael Jackson-influenced "I'm Real" and the funky, impressive "Play."Her Puerto Rican background comes to the fore on a handful of Spanish numbers, notably "Cariño," which samples Cuban percussionist Mongo Santamaria's "Sofrito" to impressive effect.It goes badly wrong on the "La Isla Bonita" soundalike "Ain't It Funny," which merely serves to reinforce the impression that Lopez is happy to settle for being the Latina Madonna. --Mike Pattenden ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Despite Jennifer Lopez's appeal; JLo falls short
JLo as a whole is not a bad album but unless your a true Jennifer Lopez "music" (not film) fan this album will appear to be a real disappointment because we all know that Jennifer Lopez is an average but capable singer so for the majority of us we rely heavyly on tight production to lift her music to that next level however on her 2nd album the production is inconsistent and lacking identity and at times hinders her.

The songs on the album appear to have either a latin, pop or R&B feel to them and don't all fit well together.

The highlights of the album to me are:

Track #1 - Love Don't Cost A Thing - Which is a very danceable track with a well done beat combine that with good lyrics and this kind of song highlights Jennifer's vocals and singing style.

Track #13 - That's The Way - Is definitely the best track by far, which was produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins who also produced most if not all of her last album.

Other listenable tracks are # 6 - Carino and # 11 - Secretly.

Overall there were just too many producers with different styles working on this album and therefore it never really had any good direction.

The album by far is not bad but it could have been a better sophmore effort by Jennifer LoLo.

4-0 out of 5 stars Jennifer Lopez finally got it right...BUT
J.LO, actress-turned-singer Jennifer Lopez's second album, outdoes its predescesor ON THE 6 by a million times a million. This album is overall the best from Lopez's repitoire. Love this record! I don't agree with Mike who officially reviews the album: Lopez is NO Latina Madonna. Selena is and always will be! Lopez, although with this album makes her first steps toward becoming a sizzlin' performer, is no Selena.

Editorial Review

One listen to the eagerly anticipated third CD from the world'sbiggest girl group and it's clear there is one child with the mostdestiny. To paraphrase the hip-hop legends, "Who's house?" Beyoncé'shouse, and with the lead vocalist producing or cowriting all of the 14tracks, it's hard to imagine what those other two chicks even do (otherthan act grateful to still have a gig). Seizing creative control is abold move for Miss Knowles, and anytime an R&B act eschews the beat ofthe week, they have to be commended. But the problem is that Beyoncé,even with her ambition, has yet to suss out that the key to a pop-R&Bsmash is hook and melody. With the exception of the now-played-outtitle track (Can we all take a moratorium on this mighty goddess themefor a second, please?) and the equally you-go-girlish "IndependentWoman Part 1," most of the tracks here lack a strong core. Beyoncécrams a litany of thoughts and motifs into her mini-anthems, withsamples ranging from Stevie Nicks to Tarzan Boy, but though the cutssizzle and sparkle and throw off much attitude, Survivor is waytoo frenetic. Even with some strong singing and songs (most notably thelaid back "Fancy"), Survivor lacks real emotion. --AmyLinden ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Asolutely Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Believe me, if you liked "The Writing's On The Wall", you will love "Survivor"!!!!!

There's no need to comment on the 2 hits that are "Independent Women (part 1)" and "Survivor", we've all heard them on the radio, and we know they are fantastic! So is the rest of this CD. The album is pretty much divided in 3 parts. The first songs are very upbeat, and extremely innovative in their rythmic composition. The group insisted on the beats, and on voice effects, and the result is something fresh never quite heard before... Songs like "Bootylicious", "Nasty girl", "Apple Pie a la Mode", and afro-inspired "Sexy Daddy" represent the perfect examples: they situate themeselves somewhere inbetween commercial and popular r'n'b (such as TLC, Brandy, Chante Moore...), and more inventive and experimental singers (such as Lucy Pearl, D. Angelo, Outkast...). This first part contains only potential hits, for instance, "Fancy" is the highly-waited-for follow up to "Say My Name". These songs are once again one step ahead of any other artist in the same category.

The second part of the album contains mostly ballads, that aren't at all as repetitive and boring as these songs can sometimes be. Once again, the girls give all they can vocally, from high pitched notes to deep effective harmonies, and the result is great. Songs like "Emotion" and "Dangerously In Love" particularily caught my attention for there unique composition and vocal efficiency.

I would define the last part of the album as deep, serious and self-examinating. It consists of 3 tracks. The first one is "The Story of Beauty"; this song is innovative because of it's lyrics and theme: a young girl being molested by her step-father. This track follows the steps of songs that focus on actual social problems and that may cause controversy, such as Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach" did in it's time. I personaly find it good when artists not only entertain you, but also bring you to a place where you can think; that's what the trio does with this very central song to the album. The tempo is quite upbeat, but it mixes well with the importance of the words, and this song ends up having a somewhat magical and sad atmosphere. The second track of this last third of the album is "Gospel Medley". Destiny's Child sing a mix of Gospels a capella, their harmonies are perfect, as well as there voice range, and they once again prove their attachment to Christianity. Fans will appreciate the fact that this song is dedicated to Ms. Andretta Tillman, the group's former manager, who passed away before Destiny's Child signed a record deal. All good things have an end, and so does this album: it finishes with "Outro (DC-3) Thank You". This song is an original way that the members of the band found to thank eachother for their support and strengh. It is somewhat justified, after the turmoil the band faced in 2000, with LaTavia's and LeToya's departure, soon followed by Farrah's. Destiny's Child unconditionnal lovers may want to purchase the european version of "Survivor" in import, because it has 3 extra tracks. The first one is "Perfect Man" from the "Romeo Must Die OST", the second one is called "Dance With Me" and has a poppish-disco vibe to it, the third one is "My heart still beats", and Beyonce sings alone on it. It's also a CD-extra that has the video to "Survivor" on it.

My conclusion is: Destiny's Child works extremely well as a trio. All members sing. Despite what has been said, Beyonce gets a lot less exposure than on past records. Kelly leads as much as her on most songs, and Michelle shows an surprisingly nice voice: it's very soft and recomforting. She has a leading part on every track, and it's for the best, because she's extremely talented! The girls are on top vocally, their harmonies are once again unique and have that never-heard-before vibe. The production is as always very innovative and ahead of it's time: it focuses a lot on repetitions and alternation of rythms and beats, congratulations to Beyonce, she's a top producer!

With this album, the members of Destiny's Child confirm their status of R'n'B Queens. This album is by far more mature in terms of vocal arrangements and lyrics than any other previous material they worked on. It's as refreshing and new as "The Writing's On The Wall" was when it came out. The only difference is that this album was created without any help from music's industry's big names such as Timbaland or Rodney Jerkins. The fact that the band achieved such a perfect result without such producers shows that they are the best R'n'B band around! Buy "Survivor", you won't be disapointed, this CD never gets off my hi-fi!

5-0 out of 5 stars SURVIVOR Is The BOMB!!!...
Destiny's Child third album is the best out of the three. This album shows more independence than TWOTW. So I rated the album tracks:

1. Independent Women Part 1- A good woman power song

2. Survivor- Anohter song showing women power

3. Bootylicious- The best song on the album. It's a song to dance to

4. Nasty Girl- A song telling a nasty girl how to dress

5. Fancy- A good song to listen to

6. Apple Pie `A La Mode- A good R'n B song

7. Sexy Daddy- A song about talking about good loking men

8. Independent Women Part 2- A fast uptempo song.

9. Happy Face- A song saying to put on a happy face

10. Emotion- This song show all the girls vocal abilities.

11. Dangerously In Love- This song is a soft song

12. Brown Eyes- A very "in love" song

13. The Story Of Beauty- A song about a girl being molested by her step-father

14. Gospel Melody- A song saying thank you to god (Like Na!)

15. Outro (DC-3) Thank You- Saying thank you to their friends and how happy they are with them.

5-0 out of 5 stars DC, the pop version
Well, they did it again, and with a loud (...). First off on the cd, is the hit Independent Woman I. Then here comes the title track, Survivor. I love the interlude after the song ends. Bootylicious!!!! my favorite song by DC, is hot, infectious, and down right danceable. The remix was good, but they shouldn't have slowed down the pace. Nasty Girl is a club banger. Independent Woman II sounds better than the first to me. Happy Face is the most poppy song in my opinion they have made, I love it but still. Emotion is my favorite ballad on here, not Dangerously In Love. I don't see why everyone loves that song, it doesn't sound all that great to me. The rest of the songs are filler besides Gospel Medley. They sound good without music. This is the pop friendly DC album. Must have for die hard fans only! ... Read more

Thank God I didn't actually buy this album. I received this as a b-day gift and I have to say that it is the worst attempt at originality that I have ever heard. Not only does JA try and sound like PAC, I think he actuall thiks he is the man reincarnated. JA, you're forgeting one thig....TALENT. The entire album is filled with immature and naive rhymes that leave the listener feeling like it was written by pre-pubesent little kid. JA is smart enough to know that he can't carry an entire album himself and brought along a slew of R&B artists to add some depth. The finished product leaves much to be desired. Do yourself a favor and go buy an album by a real artist!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!!
I used to completely hate this album. I heard Country Grammar and thought that this album was gonna be tight but when i got it i thought it was whack. But now that I'm listening to it all the way through I figured out that this was one of the best albums i have heard. He's got very impressive lyrics(he wrote them), and i think the beats are tight. St. Louie is very catchy, I hated this song at first but it grew on me till i started listening to it every time i would put this Cd in the Cd player. Greed Hate Envy is tight, a little fast but still one of the best on the CD. Country Grammar is of course the best song on the album, best beat and lyrics too. Steal The Show is really cool, I think the rest of the St. lunatics are very talented, and i think this track proves it because they really do steal the show. Ride wit Me is very impressive, another favorite. Lyrics are tight. E.I. is nice, not as good as Ride Wit Me or Country Grammar though. Thicky Thick Girl is the only bad part of the album, a really annoying song and annoying chorus. For My is awesome, and Lil' Wayne breaks it down in this song. Utha Side is another one of my favorites, I really like the chorus, it's tight. Tho Dem Wrappers is a cool song. Nice beat with more impressive lyrics. Wrap Sumden is another stupid track, The chorus is very agrivating, it's the way he sings it. Batter Up is pure genius, I love this song's beat and i love the commentators before and after the song. Never Let em C U Sweat is okay, the chorus is cool but i don't know about the whole song. Luven Me has to be the best song on the album, or pretty close. Very truthful, and very heartfelt. Overall this album is great. Very nice for a debut.

5-0 out of 5 stars REALLY REALLY SPIFFY!
This is one awsome album!

St. Louie--really like this one. The beat is funky and the chorus gets stuck in my head all the time but it's one of those songs...thats...you really don't mind.

Greed, Hate & Envy--interesting. The beat is cool.

Country Grammer (Hot..)--you all heard this so you decide.

Steal Da Show--tight! The chorus is funky. Well, I think so anyway.

Ride Wit Me--a favorite! The music is awsome and the words are cool.

E.I.--personally, he reminds me of a teletubbie in this song. (ut-oh!)

Thicky Thick Girl--don't really like this song. Gets kinda annoying after a while.

For My--sweet. The beat is awsome and lil' wayne is great in it. A favorite.

Utha Side--Um, interesting. thats all I have to say.

Tho Dem Wrappas--my favorite! The beat is funky and Nelly sounds great it it.

Wrap Sumden--Sounds like these people have a just little ittsy-bitsy bit of a smoking problem this in this. Just a little.

Batter Up--I love this song mainly because...well...this song reminds me of the Yankees and every New Yorker knows that Yankees are the greatest team of all!

Never Let 'Em C U Sweat--a favorite.

Luven Me--Um, yeah

Belive me, i you think Country Grammar, you'll looooooooooooooove this album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kittie ~ Spit ~ Review
Kittie is a loud, heavy rock band. Kittie is made up of four girls. Fallon, the lead singer, has awesome voice, and she and the three other girls who play the instruments have great musical skills. If you like Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Marylin Manson, Papa Roach or Static X, you'll love Kittie. In their songs, with Lyrics like "remember what you sew is what you reap", they talk about important issues that teens today need to deal with. The reason I gave them 4 starts instead of 5 is because in some songs, they use very descriptive language, and it it gets very graphic and gory.Some people do not like that music. They talk about suicide and other things like that. If you are okay with listening to stuff like that, then this Cd would probably be OK for you. But otherwise, Kittie is a great group, with great music, and I highly recommend this cd!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

The splicing together of nu metal, rap, funk, and sterile electronica laced with dark melodies as infectious as anything Britney has to offer, inspired 6 million people to purchase copies of Limp Bizkit's Significant Other. With Chocolate Starfish, they perfect their formula. From the electro-infused "Intro" through the contagiously chugging "My Generation" to the straight-up rap of "Getcha Groove On," Chocolate Starfish is a slick, clinical, and flawless platform for Fred Durst's effortlessly savage--and occasionally unintentionally comic--sociological rants geared toward disaffected youth. Ultimately, though, it's that undeniably intelligent musical backdrop--the brooding guitar sound that gave the Mission Impossible 2 theme haunting new life and menace, and that defines "Hot Dog," "Full Nelson," "My Way," "Rollin'," "Boiler," and "It'll Be Okay"--that makes this a seething work of genius. The fact is, with rap and rock saying pretty much the same thing, Limp Bizkit have plenty of competition. They just do what they do better than everyone else. --Dan Gennoe ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Lay off the cussing?
Overall, this album was a good one. However, I was slightly disappointed about how little Limp Bizkit has changed.

Now, call me crazy, but I thought LB was going to soften up a bit. Comparing "3 Dollar Bill, Y'all$" to "Significant Other", it seemed that Limp had made a drastic change. There were more melodic songs, some better rhymes, and meanings behind the songs. I noticed that the amount of profane language increased a tad, however. And to tell you the truth, I wasn't very happy. But I say, what the heck? It's a good album.

No matter how many times Fred would say the "F" word in "Significant Other", nothing would change my mind about Limp Bizkit changing. I expected A LOT more melodies, some good rhymes, and a lot less language...

Okay, the melodies were good. Yes, the ryhmes were excellent. But I was absolutely stupified when i heard "Hot Dog". He say the mother of all cusses, what, 48 times? I suppose the next Bizkit (if there is one) will be worse.

This was a great CD, but can't we lay off the cussing?

p.s. to whoever wrote the review saying "Rollin' (UAV)" is the best song: Xzibit isn't in it...he's in "Getcha Groove On"

5-0 out of 5 stars Limp Bizkit's Best CD!!!
First of all, this CD ROCKS. Limp Bizkit put together an excellent album here, yet not suitable for younger people (sorry...) I can find that I listen through the whole CD.

The album has the great, well-known tracks like "Rollin'", "My Way", "Boiler" and "Take a Look Around." Rollin is intense and a great party song. My Way has a great beat and awesome lyrics that you can listen to all day. Take a Look Around is the MI:2 theme song, and it is unbelievable. The guitar is awesome and the song is great to rock and dance to. Bioler is one of my favorite song. The whole song is great.

There are other really good songs on the CD that arent well known, such as Hot Dog, My Generation, and Livin' It Up. The whole CD is good.

If you are a rock fan and a Limp Bizkit fan, you should DEFINATELY buy this CD. Fred Durst, John Otto, Wes Borland, DJ Lethal, and Sam Rivers have done a great job on this CD. So I hope this has helped and that you order this CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly the best of the best:)
How aamazon had gotton away with selling the best CDs for so little I will truly never know! OK the cover gave us all a little scare but the songs are the bomb! Livin it up is my personal fav but there are plenty of other great ones to. The limp is back and hes doing alot better than those no good critics thaught he would! This is truly the best heavy metal around today!
I found not one song that I didnt like! This CD truly cured my first for a great heavy metal band! The limp is certainly the best of the best!!!!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS!
Ja Rule and Vita, explodes Ja onto the scene with this tremendous song. On a side note- JA HAS HAIR!? Anywayz...this is a very moving song. It is made for the radio with tha lack of swearing but it's aiight cuz this song is so emotional. These two make the best romantic rap song of all time. They've been together since they were kids and now Ja goes to jail but they still get together when he gets out. It is a tremendous song that you need to pick up ASAP! HOLLA!

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!!
This has gots to be the best song I have ever heard! Vita is great and Lil' Mo's voice adds a special touch to the song and there is no otha song by Ja Rule like it. If I have to pick 3 of the best Singers/Rappers, well you have it! all in the same song I think everyone should love this song just as much as I do!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars best song

Editorial Review

In a spoken interlude midway through their debut album, teen R&B trio Blaque protest comparison to TLC. Never mind that everything from attitude to production on Blaque owes a lot to that zillion-selling act and that the group is a collective protégé of TLC's Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes. Not that there's anything wrong with that; in fact, while hardly earthshaking, the disc is a stylish entry in 1999's soul stakes. Blaque's material isn't always top-drawer, but several cuts make real marks, particularly the single "808" and the '60s-retro-chorused "I Do." --Rickey Wright ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Blaque brings it all to you in one amazing debut!
I gotta say this is one of the best r&b/pop albums out their today. Each member of Blaque brings a unique sound on every song. Lead vocalist Shamari adds a strong sense of soulfulness on some songs, Brandi adds pure sweetness with her sweet baby breath-like voice, and Natina adds pure hip-hop with her constant rapping and plus, she adds a few laid back vocals on "Mind of a King". As you can see, or hear, Blaque's sensual debut proves they have staying power. Let's go through the tracks:

1.Blaque intro- nice intro, that's all I can say. 5/5

2.Roll With Me- really good song. This should have been the intro instead of track #1. This one has a heavy r&b flavor, so any r&b fanatic will love this song. 5/5

3.I Do- Very nice track with a retro 60's sound in it. Nice rapping done by Natina. 5/5

4.Leny- This one is okay. that's all I can say. 4/5

5.Rainbow Drive- Beautiful and very positive. This one is kinda like a theme for Blaque because of their name and message to the public (Believing in Life and A cheiving a Quest for Unity in Everything). 5/5

6.808- Great song. Penned by R.Kelly (you know it's gonna be good!). 5/5

7.Time After Time- DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS SONG!! It is a wonderful cover version of Cyndi Lauper's song. Blaque's version is a little upbeat, but still beautiful. 6/10

8.Bring it All to Me- Okay people, the best thing about this song is NOT J.C's appearance!!! He does NOT sound good, so quit using that as an excuse to like this song! 7/10 (excluding J.C's performance).

9.Mind of a King- Great performance from Natina! Very laid-back and cool. 7/10

10.Don't Go Looking for Love- Beautiful ballad!!!! Penned by diva Mariah Carey. It sounds like something Mariah would sing herself. Maybe it's because of the strong vocals Shamari showcases in the song, and those background vocals are GREAT!!!!! 9/10

11.Release Me- Another beautiful, haunting ballad with amazing background music and vocals. 8/10

12.Right Next To Me- a sweet, midtempo song with a sweet sound from beginning to end. 7/10

13.Stay By Your Side- Another great song. I just love the message in it and the music and lyrics are just fantastic! 8/10

14.When the Last Teardrop Falls- An excellent, heartfelt song and closer. The wonderful message is about losing someone you love, like a b-friend/g-friend, relative, or close friend. 9/10

Overall, buy this cd. You will not be dissapointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good
I must say that I was plesantly surprised when I bought this album. I basically bought it by chance (something that I almost never do) because I've read so many good reviews about the album. And needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. The album is tight. My favorite songs are the rock-n-roll inspired "I Do," the remake of Cyndi Lauper's classic "Time After Time," the smooth, swingy R&B/Pop flavor of "Bring It All To Me (f/'N SYNC)" (with Billy Lawrence on background vocals), and the acoustic ride down "Rainbow Drive." Also the slinky sounds of "Mind Of A King," and the bass ladened "808." The only draw back on the album is the album cover because it might not attract many male fans. Nevertheless, this album is above average and cleanly produced. Kudos to Blaque and I wish them much success.

1-0 out of 5 stars Please ,,
If you want this cd Sample it please I know they could have did better than that. this album is so Corny I like three songs out of fourteen and that's not even average. If you want this album buy it used. not brand new i payed 16.99 for this album. I was very upset with this group. Everyone told me that I need to trade in this album. And no the 808 bumpin remix is not on here. If torch is relesed, Which I hope will be. I hope it's better than This. ... Read more

Editorial Review

One of the most eagerly awaited albums in rock history, Big Brother & the Holding Company's 1968 major label debut (they'd previously released one thinly produced collection on the small Mainstream label) made good on all the hype generated by Janis Joplin's amazing performance at the Monterey Pop Festival the year before. Crowned by its hit single, a churning remake of Aretha Franklin's sister Erma's "Piece of My Heart," the album also contained Joplin's Monterey showstopper, Big Mama Thornton's "Ball and Chain," as well as the Gershwin classic "Summertime," on which Joplin's always underappreciated band (especially guitarists Sam Andrews and James Gurley) match her vocal intensity with their own ferocious playing. This expanded reissue includes two previously unissued outtakes ("Roadblock" and "Flower in the Sun") and a couple of heretofore unheard live cuts ("Catch Me Daddy" and "Magic of Love"), all from 1968. --Billy Altman ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous sound quality and a few good bonus tracks.
CHEAP THRILLS has always been a favorite album of mine and the digitally remastering of the classic record comes off well. "Combination of the Two" starts the album off with a bang, then segues into "I Need a Man to Love", what I think is the best song on the original album! "Summertime" and "Piece of My Heart" are classic Janis standards, "Turtle Blues" goes back to Janis' Texas roots, "Oh Sweet Mary" gets as acid-rock as you can get, and "Ball and Chain" finishes off what has been quite an experience! Now, everyone knows there was a wealth of material left over from the CHEAP THRILLS recording sessions and only two are here (for the others, look for FAREWELL SONG and JANIS 3-CD). "Road Block" is the best version of the song I've heard, but the band members' voices are toned down to make Janis sound like lead singer. It gives it a phony sound. The same with "Catch Me Daddy" the live track, which is horrible! "Flower in the Sun" is a good studio track, not the best version around (see LIVE AT WINTERLAND '68), but it is very good! "Magic of Love" is the best version I've heard of the song. I do think the bonus tracks throw off the atmosphere of the complete original album: hard, deep, dark, FANTASTIC rockin'! But they're nice to have. Any Janis released is good Janis, in my eye. But sometimes they need only be heard once.

5-0 out of 5 stars Take a piece of Cheap Thrills!!!
Classic!! This shot to 1# and made Janis the 1st female rock superstar. "Combination of the two" is a great song writen by Sam Andrew. In the song, they keep singing words that are not true. "I need a man to love" is good with backing vocals singing "No, it just cant be." "Summertime" is a great song with a acid rock sound. "Piece of my heart" is a hard rocker. I think I remember when I was 5 the "Come on,Come on" vocals. I always thought "Is that a man singing?" *laughs*. Big Mama Thorton's hit "Ball and Chain" is a hard, hard rocker. If you buy the Cd, you will get 4 bonus tracks. Cheap Thrills is the album that made Janis a true rock star.

5-0 out of 5 stars PURE HEAVY METAL BLUES! TURN IT UP LOUD!
This is a one of a kind of rock-and-roll album, that bands like the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Jefferson Airplane, made, but Janis Joplin made one of the best Psychedelic Blues-Rock Heavy Metal albums ever. Cheap Thrills shows how Big Brother and the Holding Company can be with Joplin around. songs like "Combination Of The Two" a rock adventure to the highway,
"Ball And Chain" (every time I hear this it would give me chills of the dark and haunting guitar solos) Gershwin's "Summertime" which Janis version is one of a kind brilliant and refuses to die, and never forget "Piece Of My Heart" a brilliant track of how a Texas Girl can kick some butt on this to show how Janis can howl and scream and one the brilliant female singers is rock and roll, although it was a sad loss for Janis in 1970 of her death, her legacy moves on, so Janis keep it rockin!
Have another little piece of my heart now baby. ... Read more

Editorial Review

On their second album, the multiplatinum trio TLC have given up most of their debut's tomfoolery and have matured into a very modern deep Southern soul, watered and nurtured in hip-hop culture. The album's centerpiece is the magnificent "Waterfalls," a revival meeting of new jack swing, gospel, and Prince (whose "If I Was Your Girlfriend" they turn inside out). Their spare, surprising arrangements rely on the kind of live instrumentation they single-handedly brought back in style. Lyrically, CrazySexyCool concentrates on love at the point when it's grown deeper but also more frustrating--for every great love song there's a great cheating song--and the group's singing and rapping balances sassiness with depth and nuance.--Douglas Wolk ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Crazy,Sexy,Cool
A title to the album that as well describes each and every song on this 16 Track 10-million copy selling (Certified Diamond)album. Each song has it's own tone and touch, the songs that really got my atttention were Red Light Special, Diggin' On U, Waterfalls, and Creep, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the 12 tracks are not as catchy as these 4 are. The unfortunate death of Lisa Left Eye Lopes shocked all the dedicated TLC fans, News was reported that the remaining members will finish up the remaining work on there 4th LP. I highly recommend this album more then "Fanmail" and "OOOOOOhh On The TLC Tip" no other trio of black female artists have come lose to the success of these three talented women. Other prodigies that would be considered the most similiar: 3LW, Destiny's Child, Blaque, 702, although none of these artists have become as quite as successful as TLC themselves except for a maybe acception for destiny's child. Buy this album, every track is great and for about [$$] for a 16 track album is not that bad.

5-0 out of 5 stars Probably The Best TLC Album
I bought this CD in Fourth grade and seriously wasn't disappointed. Here are my ratings for each of the songs:

1.Intro-lude 5/10 Don't really care for interludes so I never listen to it.

2.Creep 10/10 One of my most favorite songs on the CD.

3.Kick Your Game 8/10 Not a bad song, has a good beat.

4.Diggin' On You 8/10 It's okay, has a nice, relaxing beat

5.Case Of The Fake People 7/10 Good beat, but don't get the lyrics.

6.Crazysexycool 5/10 Another interlude...BORING!

7.Red Light Special 10/10 Another one of my favorites.

8.Waterfalls 9/10 Good song, but a little too overplayed.

9.Intermission-lude 4/10 La,la,la...

10.Let's Do It Again 7/10 Don't really listen to it.

11.If I Was Your Girlfriend 9/10 Pretty good song.

12.Sexy 6/10 Interlude, interesting but kind of obscene.

13.Take Our Time 6/10 Slow, boring.

14.Can I Get A Witness 5/10 Don't listen. Another Interlude.

15.Switch 10/10 Great song! Love the rap by Left Eye.

16.Sumthin' Wicked This Way Comes 10/10 Awesome. A very creative song they did with the guy from Outkast.

5-0 out of 5 stars The clean version is a must have!
I used to have the Parental Advisory version. I sold that one a couple of days ago and I picked the clean version up at my library. I love this version more. I will agree with the previous reviewer who said that Eve cusses too much on a couple of songs. But I noticed that the interludes were taken out of the Clean version and a majority of the words were changed around, which I think is awesome! Pick up this disc pronto! It is great!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good
This CD is a good sophomore ablum. I mean there are some good songs, and not so good songs but EVE shows a lot of talent. So this CD deserves a 4/5. If there had been some better lyrics in Scorpion maybe it could get a 5/5.

My fave tracks are Who's that girl -- Let Me Blow Ya Mind w/ Gwen Stefani -- and You Had Me, You Lost Me (Except she says the f*** work way to much. But not on the clean version!)
