Angie Stone's sixth studio album is entitled "Rich Girl". It contains fifteen tracks. One of them is an "Interlude" by Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
On some tracks Angie goes back to the vintage soul music. Back to the times of 45 rpm records. But you can also dance to her music in the club.
Angie Stone wants to give you "Real Music" on her album "Rich Girl". The tracks "Do What U Gotta Do" and "Backup Plan" are already out as singles. The latter might remind some of us of Chic, the band of Nile Rogers and the late Bernard Edwards. On at least two songs Angie Stones takes us back to the vaults of Stax Records. When listening to the song "Guilty" you feel some love for Otis Redding. The other song to remind you of Memphis is "Rich Girl" which takes you back to William Bell's song "A Tribute To A King". In the club you would like to dance to "Right In Front Of Me" and "Livin'It Up". The playfulness in the song "U Lit My Fire" is sweet to hear. In general it would have been nice if more metaphors would have been used in the songs. It is wonderful to hear a contribution from soul sister Tweet in the song "Sisters".(TA)
