Synopsis

Amazon.com
A musical sorority sister of Alicia Keys and Angie Stone--though she'd doubtless bristle at the suggestion--Philly-reared soul singer Res nevertheless manages to strike a convincing balance between the street and the studio on How I Do, juxtaposing saucy, melodic pop with more ragged funk and R&B. That kind of crossover is impressive, but Res (pronounced Reese) uses her elastic and surprisingly vibrato-free voice to poke around in various corners, even taking tentative steps toward rhyme. Co-conspirator and producer Martin "Doc" McKinney's thumbprints are evident in the smooth flow of beats and gurgling ambient washes, though unlike his previous work with Toronto trip-hop unit Esthero, McKinney's sonic high jinks are opposite a voice with the muscle to stay in the spotlight. At once smoochy and sassy, How I Do goes a long way toward establishing Res as a powerful new voice on the pop and urban scenes. --Kim Hughes

YES to RES

"Res (actually pronounced "Reese") and Alicia Keys are two female contemporary urban/soul artists who are destined to be HUGE, and if you haven't yet heard of Res, you will...from track #1, Golden Boys, to the very last track, New York newcomer Res debuts with a CD that's consistent, high quality (songs, vocals, production) and quite special. Res is cool, hip, intelligent, talented and apart from the fact that she somewhat resembles Lauryn Hill, she's in the same calibre when it comes to sheer talent. if you're looking for some new, street soul, songs that mean something and accessible, yet blissfully superior music to what's currently out there, treat yourself to some RES!"
Plays Like a Greatest Hits Album!!!

"Res is too damn unknown for someone as pretty and talented as she is. There's got to be a conspiracy. This is one of the top 5 albums ever made. I listen to it anytime I'm in the mood to be impressed by music. Its perfect. Its much different than a lot of other stuff, too. Res is pretty unique."

"Res is quite the artist, who should be well respected for her skills. The thing that stands out to me about "Res" debut is her lyrics. If you listen closely, the words are saying something. It's refreshing to get away from the shake that thang, bling bling, lyrics. The other notable thing is that Res' style is more rock and roll than r&b. But if you're a broad minded music lover, you will appreciate this. A great CD all around."
