Under The Radar

"Ann G. was an r&b singer that came out in the late 80's and followed up her intial success with this sophomore project. This album showcased her singing/songwriting/production talents throughout the eight featured tracks. The album flows from beginning to end. "Get A Life" jumpstarts the project with it's parliment/funkadelic sample in the mix. This song is giving a message that people should mind their business. Other message songs include "I Can't Get With It" and "Love Me Just For Me." The first is about a friend that is into things that may not be the best for Ann G. She sings the song soulfully and non judgmentally but with a very balanced viewpoint, the later song speaks for itself-a love song about an individual being loved from the heart internally. Like the other reviews mentioned, this album was a more mature effort than the first. It's hard to believe that a woman with this much talent didn't get the props she really deserved. She fell under the radar."

"This is Ann G., 2nd cd on Atlantic. She wrote and produced the music with partner Eddie Irons. Her firt cd was typical of 88,89 era however it did have some sensual ballads. The sophomore effort is more mature. A lot of the tracks would fit in with current neo-soul movement. Her voice is earthy and sulty. My Favorite track is "Heroes" it's very poetic and political, i also love OneStep(closer to heaven) check it out!!!!!!!
1. get a life 10/10 this track is kinda organic/like sul2soul
2. where will you be 5/10 this tracks dated/ very 90 ish
3. all i see is you 7/10 uptempo track
4. ONE STEP CLOSER(TO HEAVEN) 10/10 nice midtemp track similar
to the way love goes"
5. i can't get with it 8/10 very rhythmic
6. hassel free 8/10 ballad, good arrangement and cadence
7. love me for me 8/10 nice ballad
8. heroes 10\10 beautiful poetic, political rock ballad"
