CD Reviews

This has all of Mica's best songs. Lacks a little oomph

"Mica Paris has a very nice voice reminiscent of Natalie Cole. When she dropped her debut CD "So Good," she gave a strong indication that there could be a superstar in the making at least in her native UK. Songs like "My One Temptation" (which is simply superb) and "So Good" showed much promise. I also enjoyed her version of "You Put A Move On My Heart" as well as her duet with the incomparable Will Downing on "Where Is The Love." They both do the song proud.Ultimately I think that Mica failed to make a stronger impact because she went the traditional R & B route, which of course is not a bad thing, but her voice, youth, song arrangements and generally tepid song selection made it difficult to make a case for bypassing more seasoned and stronger singers like Anita Baker on one end and hipper soul singers like Lisa Stanfield.Listening to this collection you get the very best of her 3 releases and it's a placid collection, but not a must-have unless you have all the works of major talents ranging from Nina Simone to Joss Stone. Mica easily earns 3 stars and if you like middle of the road adult contemporary r & b, everything here will satisfy you. I am glad that I bought it for the songs that I highlighted but it's not a release that gets much play in my crowded music universe."

"Mica Paris caught my attention back in the day with One Temptation and was forgotten in many respects in the U S. I stumbled upon this album and was glad I did. There are a lot of remakes as well as a duet with will downing that is not bad."

"It's been a long awaiting for a CD which showcases a variety of styles that fits Mica's vocal range. The only fault I have is there were tracks that were release in the U.S. that were not included on this CD. Whoever said she reminds them of Anita Baker and/or Regina Belle needs to get their hearing check. I don't hear the vocal styles of those two. If anything, she reminds me of a young British version of Natalie Cole. Especially when she sings My One Temptation. Overall I still give this CD a perfect 5 starts!"
