so I posted awhile ago I was looking forward to hearing a few releases.
Now that I’ve heard them I must say…I’m pretty disappointed.
Ready, its ok….right now it’s seeking the whip approval, just put it in the car this morning and Neighbors Know My Name kinda knocked, but dare I say I like the lyrics but not the way Trey sings on the song….other people have been saying for awhile that Trey can’t really sing, and I never really agreed with that but…yeah. anyway definitely liked Trey Day better. I feel it had a better mix of subjects and types of songs….we’ll see if it passes approval.
BP3….*sigh* I don’t even have the words. Still trying to get into it, only because I love Hov. anybody else it would be deleted off the hard drive. and, I’m going to buy my copy on Sept. 11.
Turn Me Loose….I really like Ledisi, but I’on know… something about this one just aint right. I loooooove her voice though, so at least she sounds good singing whatever it is that she’s singing. I like a few of the tracks.
and the most anticipated release of the year….more than Jay….Whitney Houston’s I Look To You. I’m glad my girl Whit Whit is back, looking better than ever. But I didn’t have high hopes for her pipes, and I’m glad I didn’t. Maybe I’m holding her to a way too high standard. but come on its Whitney fucking Houston! ugh. her CD is pretty decent.
and to end all disappoints because quite honestly I had no expectations is Eric Roberson, Music Fan First. I just got into him maybe last year, don’t have all his music, but I like what I’ve heard. but Music Fan First? SOLID CD. It makes me happy, and that’s exactly what I need in this dreary weather, and all the rest of the disappointments, from artists I love!
I don’t ask for much these days……. *cue Codi Chesnutt*
I guess the next round of artists to get excited about are MJB and Raheem DeVaughn. Oh, and Amerie–who got PUSHED BACK, by the way. Who else has something coming out this fall?
I’ll report back on Trey and Jay in a couple weeks….
so…what are you listening to? I need something, anything…..
