CD Reviews

Oh my God, I love it
Tanika L. Carroll | McDonough, GA | 08/17/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Boney at his best. I have most of his albums and they are all good, but this one, is fabulous. All I needed to hear "Better with Time", and that was it, I had to get the album. I couldn't wait to get it in my collection. The only thing I don't like is the album cover itself. I don't like cause it's made out of cardboard, instead of getting the classic CD Case. Other than that, all the songs are beautiful."
Pure Heaven!

"The mere fact that Boney's music has remained fresh and contemporary after all these years is a true testiment to his talents. "Pure" is by far one of his best cd's. I especially liked "It's On". I will definately be cruising up the coast listening to that track. This cd is a safe bet for those of you like me who only purchase a cd if 3 or more songs are good. Also, for those of you haven't seen this musical genius live....you're missing out!"

"Let me first start by saying I own everything Boney. Okay, enough said. This cd is the culmination of a maturing and ever changing body of work. From beginning to end, you can not miss the fact that Boney wanted put himself out there as only he knows how to do it. Boney you need to produce and write for yourself more often. He even brought some old school, Jerry Hay, Bill Reichenbach of Seawind fame, Tony Maiden of Rufus and Chaka Khan, Joe Sample, Pino Palladino, Billy Preston, Ricky Lawson, and mixed it with the new Ahmir "?westlove" Thompson, Dwele, Jon B., and Bilal. He is a true master of 'smooth jazz', and knows how to mix it up without it coming out sounding like saccharine which some smooth jazz artists do. (ie, Kenny G) He can make your head bob, toe-tap and send shivers at the same time. I can't wait to see him live which is always the icing on the cake after he releases a cd. For any true fan, this album is a BUY!!! If you're new to Boney, this purchase is a major treat for you.
