"City High has become one of my favorite CD's lately and I think we are looking at an EXTEMELEY talented group! This CD brings back "true" music. This is my scale of 1-10 on every song:1. Didn't Ya- 9.0 Great Chorus2. 3-Way- 9.5 Catchy Tune, one of my favs!3. Why- 8.5 A pretty good song, 8.5 is not bad4. Song For You- 8.0 A good song, but not on my favs list5. 15 Will Get You 20- 9.5 An awesome chorus 6. Cats and Dogs- 9.0 Another great chorus from City High7. Caramel- 9.0 A very good song with great vocals8. Best Friends- 9.5 A song with meaning, tracks 8,9, and 10 are the 3 best9. Sista- 9.5 This great song kinds makes you think...10. What Would You Do- 10.0 This All-Around GREAT song gets a perfect score from me11. So Many Things- 9.0 A catchy song that keeps City High great12. The Only One I Trust- 9.0 A very moving song13. CIty High Anthem- 9.5 Catchy, catchy, catchy, anyone who has heard it, its all true14. You Don't Know Me- 8.0 Just doesn't catch on with me"

"City High is the first group to debut off J records after olivia made the way. Is this new group worth checking out?? Just from the first single alone I knew this would be worth listening to. I knew it was different just from the chorus "what would you do if your son was at home lying all alone on the bathroom floor and he's hungry, and the way to feed him is to sleep with a man fo ra little bit of money". Sounnded liek something one of thier friends went through. This cd is probably one of the best R+B/Hip cds to drop form a group in a while. The first thing you see with city high is they have the same formula their mentor "wyclef" had in his former group Fugees with 2 guys and a girl. This formula never goes wrong except this time around everyone comes strong and doesnt let the talents of one overshadow everyone else. First I'll let everyone know that all these joints were produced and written completly by all members of the group. I give 2 stars just for that alone. Now for the tracks, ...whats good?(1/5(worst) - 5/5(best))1-This is about a cheating lover. The beat is tight...one of my favorite on the cd. Claudette reminds me of beyonce at certain times but has a style all her own...really makes this track. (4/5)2- This is about being in a love triangle(not what u was thinking..LOl). This is a funky track that plays like a story. they all sound good on this track. (3/5) 3-This is a slow to midtempo song with a tight beat about a love gone wrong. (4/5)4- This is a latin/hip-hop track where robby lets u see how much he can blow. This song is dedicated to someone he loved or liekd a lot(I think). Tight track. (3.5/5)5- This song is one of the deepest on the album. It talks about how a 15 year old can get you 20 years in jail.(making the name 15 will get you 20) This hapend to one of their freinds. midtempo beat. (4/5)6- This one city high lets you see how they can rip the mike. Claudette and Ryan rip the mike and let you see how they flow. This talks about men that are dogs but gives a story behind why some ar ethat way(ie. broken heart....cold feelings) (4.5/5)7- Nice track about a girl with caramel skin. Robby shows how he can blow on this one again and talks about what he wants in someone. (3/5)8- This is another deep track. About a friend trying to get a couple back togetehr. even though one is better saying.."pay back is a B^&(h" Shows you teh flip side of things (4/5)9- This one is just the guys singing. Mid-tempo soul beat about a freind telling his boy he been with his sister and got her pregnant behind his back. Anotehr deep one. (4/5)10- We all know this track but this is anotehr one that puts you on the spot with the question..."what would you do?" (4/5)11-A laid back , smooth track about someone leaving. (4/5)12-Anotehr track with a laid back latin beat with claudette ripping it with the vocals giving you a ghetto fairytale about 2 lovers caught up. Something like teh movie "carmen" form mtv. (4/5)13- Uplifting track about coming form the hood and making something better of theirselves contrary to what critics and otehr people said or may say. (4/5)14- This is another funky track saying .."you dont knwo me so dont judge me....I let experience guide me as me teacher...and leave the rest up to him(god)". (4/5)Overall you couldnt ask for anything better from a new group that had a lot going against them in competetion. Every song played out like a story. They each had at least one song where you got to really hear one member of group and know that none arein it for the image. They talked about so many things that I havent heard in hip-hop/R+b and the things that were similar to what was said already had a new twist to it. I like the fact that wyclef let them do their thing and didnt appear on every track unlike some other producers. Dont sleep on this new one....get it!"
