Vanessa's Landmark Album
Luis Hernandez | New York, New York, USA | 12/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"What a comeback! Vanessa Williams, the former Miss America tarnished by scandal back in the 1980's is definitely a survivor of the controversy that forced her to resigned as the first Miss America of African-American descent. She doesn't need a crown, because with her amazing voice, her beauty, and her immense talent, the singer/actress blew her critics away with this follow-up album to her 1989 debut.The "Comfort Zone" has SMOOTH written all over. With amazing beats on some songs, and beautiful balladry on others, Vanessa has proved that she is no flash in the pan. The album's title track is a smooth song that makes the listener feel somewhat transported musically. However, not stopping there 1. Comfort Zone "Running Back To You," was one of the album's top singles and features an amazing club beat that will make you groove to Vanessa's sweet vocals anytime. "Work To Do," an R&B song with a bit of rap is another great high-tempo track that will have one feeling upbeat.Vanessa is also well known for her ballads and her famous song "Save the Best for Last," became a number one hot due to her ability to sing like an enchantress. Same goes for the songs "What Will I Tell My Heart," and "Just For Tonight," which also demonstrate the range of her vocal talents.The "Comfort Zone" is a must have for any R&B fan. Vanessa is a true diva and when I first purchased this album in 1993, I couldn't put it down. It's one of the 1990's best albums in my book."
Excellent! A true comfort

"Vanessa Williams has got to be one of the most underrated artists out there. She doesn't get as much credit as she deserves. She's an excellent singer and on THE COMFORT ZONE she proves it hands down. This is one of her best albums. It's relaxing, beautiful, and full of R&B and pop delights. Most people only remember Vanessa for her smash hit "save the best for last" but THE COMFORT ZONE has a lot of other great songs. Songs like "still in love", "just for tonight" and "goodbye" are very well done. This album flows very well. Vanessa's vocals are top notch. Her voice is steady, strong, and sweet. She sings each note to perfection and her emotions come out on each track. THE COMFORT ZONE is one of the best albums ever."
