CD Reviews

A totally unrestrained mix of conflicting styles.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this album on the strength of the track, "Freedom From Pity", and was totally astounded at the range of styles employed by Jhelisa to brilliant effect. I could listening to this album forever without getting bored. The one thing I want to know is, what's going on with the bonus track? I have to stop the CD before it plays as it scares my cats to death!"
Missing The Funk

"certainly, jhelisa's second release shows her as a matured artist, but electric language seemingly says "up yours" to the style of music that made her first full length so memorable. gone are the acid jazz vibes and upbeat funk that fueled galactic rush into the clubs and on to loads of mixtapes. language electric is introspective and dark. the lyrics are more focused on social issues and the music has a modern sound that incorporates d&b and trip-hop. there is still a good deal of soul involved, however, and jhelisa's voice is as beautiful as it always was, but electric language as a whole may be a little too creepy for it's own good."
Brotha Man loves Sista Girl

"This CD was crafted with time and artistic effort!!! The girl is bad, don't sleep!!! Jhelisa is tremendously underrated like a mug. She should be on okayplayer.com and all the other soul/hip-hop/etc. organizations. I know she's toured worldwide, but she needs to do something in the US, for real!!She was before Jill Scott, before Goapele, before Amel Larruiex, and the list goes on. They say the true soul leaders are the ones who get left behind...well let's not leave this one. Look her up!!!!AND GUESS WHAT, I HEARD SHE'S WORKING ON SOMETHING NEW!!! NO LIE!!! watch out..."
