MR. ENERGY!!!
bolingo2 | Washingon DC | 11/08/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE POWERHOUSE DANCE NUMBER "MYSTIQUE" IS THE TITLE SONG OF THE CD AND REFERS TO HISTORIC BAKONGO RHYTHMS OF SHIMITA'S NATIVE LAND. THIS ENERGETIC INTRO IS FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER FAST ONE "ZONGA" (COME BACK) AND THE EQUALLY DANCEABLE "SANS RETOUR"
(NO RETURNING). THINGS MELLOW A BIT FOR THE PRETTY "FAKIRA". "SYBEL" IS SOUKOUS STYLE, FOLLOWED BY THE ROMANTIC "LOVE ME BABY" IN ENGLISH & FRENCH. "NGOUYA" IS ANOTHER
LINGALA SOUKOUS-ZOUK SONG AND THE CD WRAPS UP WITH ANOTHER HIGHLY
ENJOYABLE DANCE TUNE "QUI VIVRA VERRA" (TIME WILL TELL).THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CDS OF ALL TIME. THE AMAZING THING IS
THAT SHIMITA DOES ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING BY HIMSELF ON IT: THE LEAD VOCALS, THE HARMONY & THE ANIMATION -- IT'S A MONUMENTAL OPUS THAT SHOWCASES HIS WIDE VOCAL RANGE, HIS ARRANGEMENTS,HIS
ABILITY TO WRITE "HOOKS", AND EVEN HIS SENSE OF HUMOR WHICH PERVADES ALL OF HIS WORK.HE'S NOT YOUR USUAL SOUKOUS/AFRICAN SINGER AND THIS CD IS AN INTERESTING LATE 90'S INTRO TO WHERE HE'S HEADED IN THE FUTURE!I LOVE IT!!!"
