Vivian Green - Too Intense


Vivian Green's first album, A Love Story (2002), showed a lot of promise to me of things to come. It wasn't a fantastic album, it was just ok to me. 3 yrs later she returned with Vivian, which had an entertaining video for Gotta Go, Gotta Leave but besides that, I can't recall anything but being sorely disappointed. This year she brings us Beautiful, which I purchased with much apprehension because I wasn't feeling the lead single. I don't want to say the album is bad, because it isn't, its just not for me. Here's one track from the album that I am feeling though, I'll probably spin it while I'm djing Saturday night. Have you heard the album yet? What are your thoughts?

SNAP! The album is not aimed at the soul lovers who elevated her to that lofty position. If you love vacuous, brain-dead,x-factor-ish, tuneless, idiotic jams that sound like r kelly at his worst, you'll love this. Crap. The cut 'Caught Up' though, is good. The rest, shite.

I don't know what it is but this album is lacking something. Her voice sounds soul-less to me. I wanted to like it but...

Unfortunately, Vivian has something not moving in her corner because with her vocal range and texture she could be a lot further along than she is. I want to think that she is not responsible for the ____ she's singing but then again that's no excuse. So many singers are not in the place of an artist who simply wants to inspire and if something comes of it, then great. The focus is more so if you can carry a tune over some loud assed beats. Thank God for PJ Morton, and Ayah and .....and ..... and..... and......anything and everything soulful. That's why I keep my ipod in heavy rotation. Love...
