Synopsis

Amazon.com
Ambersunshower's {cq} Walter T. Smith contains only one song produced by P.M. Dawn, but the alternative-rap, trip-hop spirit of P.M. Dawn, De La Soul, Neneh Cherry and the Fugees permeates this impressive debut solo album. That song, the current single "Running Song," sets the tone for the project with its lyrics about a young woman's emerging independence, mesmerizing rhythm loop, sci-fi effects and long eerie soprano phrases. The title track, named after Ambersunshower's late grandfather, balances the sorrow of loss and the affection of memory over a processional rhythm that seems to break into skipping when she imagines meeting her grandpa in heaven. --Geoffrey Himes
 

CD Reviews

One of the Greatest Albums of All Time
Patrick S Murphy | Washington, DC United States | 03/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"That very few folks have heard, unfortunately. One reviewer stated this album was not his "cup of tea," and honestly, I can't see how that can be. I've had folks with all sorts of musical tastes and biases listen to this disc and, to a person, they've at least acknowledged the artistry behind it, and, at most started looking high and low for a copy of the disc. Ambersunshower made the disc every neo-soul, R & B, funk, alternative, etc. artists wishes they could make (including me! :-)), and then all but disappeared. Awesome."
This is a must have in my collection.

"I have been an Ambersunshower fan for a long time
so my cd came up missing after I moved. I had to
buy it again, because this cd is Great. The former
Groove Garden singer (I think)has a great sound and voice
that gives you the total package. Ambersunshower if you
read this WE WANT NEW MATERIAL. Enjoy"
Ten years later, this women sounds just as good then she did

"When I first heard Running Song by Ambersunshower, I thought the group Loose Ends were doing somewhat of a remix of their hit song "Hangin On A String" and was just experimenting using an up tempo beat, with another singer on the track.

All I have to say is that, it is a crime this women is not well KNOWN!!! I like her voice, it's unique and this album is AWSOME!!!"
