CD Reviews

Jesse's Own Sound
Armando M. Mesa | Chandler, AZ | 08/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jesse Johnson has always been a favorite Minneapolis artist of mine because he stays true to his own style of R & B sound. He has never gone to the deep end or extreme leaving his fans alienated. He has been compared too often to the likes of Prince.However, where Prince has gone to the edge and back and left listeners more confused than mesmerized at times, Johnson's main musical vein is truly funk/ R & B. His utilization of R & B retro-sounds and gifted guitar licks is astounding; At times, when you hear his guitar solos there's much jazz or blues influences to be admired here !Unlike his previous release, there is nothing cold or electronic on Shockadelica; It's all warm and organic !"
Jesse is just too bad!

"This is Jesse's best CD. He stretches himself more than any other (except for the much later 'Bare My Naked Soul'). Crazay with Sly Stone is a classic, as is "Being Black in America". Though "She" did well on the charts, I have always like "Do Yourself a Favor". This is a CD that does no disappoint!"

"Wow! What a follow up! I feel as though this album is the apex of his career thus far. Once again, Mr. Johnson totally rocks the house. There's a plethora of thumpin' bass, screamin' guitar and that trademark Minneapolis synth sound that I love so much on Shockadelica, as well as catchy melodies and smooth vocals. He obviously gleaned a lot working with "The Master" himself Prince and it shows.Some of my favorites are: "Addiction," "Baby Let's Kiss," "Change Your Mind," "Crazay," and "Do Yourself A Favor."If you like old school Minneapolis funk, familiarize yourself with Jesse Johnson!
