Give It a Chance to Fulfill...


Yes, at first listen, I agree with almost all the other reviews--there's no "Bootylicious," "Independent Women," "Bug-a-Boo," "Jumpin Jumpin," etc., with the exception of "Lose My Breath," which ranks up there with all their former hits. I would've been happy if they had even re-done Beyonce's "Naughty Girl"--but no. So, in that fun, funky, original-lyrics sense, yes, it's a bit of a bummer. But if you look at the album from a different persepctive, you may gain a different appreciation. Had they released an album of songs that sounded just like all those former hits, we'd be saying, "This is just like their old stuff--why haven't they grown up?" They are evolving.

After a few listens, the songs do grow on you--it's just differnt than what we're used to. (I was hoping for something like "Sexy Daddy" or "Nasty Girl"!) Then again, DC is the number-one selling female girl group of all time, so I'd say we trust them--they've been doing well thus far. (And I gotta say, "Bad Habit" is one of their best tracks to date!) Give the album a second or third listen--it may just Fulfill.

A Classic


This album was the soundtrack to the best years of my life. When I play songs like 'la femme d'argent' and 'all I need' It takes me back to balmy sunny days in early spring, walking the lonely peaks and ridges of mid-wales..
Thanks Air .
Buy it, and if you like the music for the same reasons I do, then buy 'premier symptomes', but don't expect much from '10khz legend' or 'the virgin suicides' - they are much less optimistic pieces of music; and '10khz legend' treads an uncomfortable path between contempt and despair.

Actually 3 1/2 stars, Recommended!


Michael Franti's lyrics, and voice elevates a seemingly throwaway bubblegum song. Smooth delivery, and uptempo pacing makes this a worthy continuation of the 70s sound. Positive message songs, of peace, love, and rock'n roll, for the 21st century. Recommended.

Nice but could have been better.


If you are looking for your favorite versions of her hits, forget this CD. Most of these are remixes, especially Disc 2.
