Solid 2nd CD From Caron!!

"This IS NOT the Debut CD by Caron Wheeler!! Her 1st (& out of print) CD was 1990's 'UK Blak', but 'Beach Of The War Goddess' is a solid project with a variety of innovative producers. The 1st single from this CD was 'I Adore You' (produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and originally on the 'Mo Money' soundtrack). Caron's vocals are strong, but yet subtle at the same time, and those who loved her Soul II Soul music, will enjoy this effort. This CD was not promoted properly, and that's a shame because Caron is a pioneer of the 'Neo Soul' genre of music (incl.Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, India.Arie, Jill Scott, etc.). All 'Neo Soul' Music lovers should get BOTH of Caron's solo CDs, her Soul II Soul projects, and 'Cookie-The Anthropological Mixtape' by Me'Shell NdeGeOcello (Caron sings on many of the tracks). Highly recommended tracks on 'Beach Of The War Goddess':'I Adore You', 'Soul Street', 'Lite As A Feather', 'Do You Care', 'Father', In Our Love', and MORE!
Peace, SD (of 'Chaka's World')"
An incredible singer matched with incredible production

"Former Soul II Soul songstress Caron Wheeler gives us a vastly-underrated, incredible second solo album that quietly set the standard for intellectually-minded, truly soul-searching R&B that artists like Erykah Badu, Amel Larrieux and others are mining now. Wheeler has one of the most increible voices and singing styles of any singer out today, and it's a shame more people didn't buy this record when it was out and she could have used the sales. There's a smashing ballad ("Do You Care?"), Jam&Lewis production ("I Adore You", which was the only really good song on the deplorable MO' MONEY soundtrack) and some other great, surprising gifts of vocal agility, grand production and simply good songwriting. The best R&B album you never heard."
Good Solid Debut
