This cd is OUTSTANDING. IT has 8 solid song that are the bomb. These days you're lucky if you can get 2 good songs on a cd. If you like R&B, but are sick of either todays pathetic attempts at R&B or boring-wannabe-retro R&B, buy this cd. It, like Zap Mama's 'Ancestry in Progress', is outstanding at taking R&B/funk to a new, different, and GOOOOOOOD level. Peace.
