CD Reviews

"My Melody is...."
L. Kelsey | Riverside, CA. United States | 08/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"a beautiful album, one that covers the territory of love so well. The big hit was "Silly," which was appreciated more a year after the album's release and got a lot of air play then. Because it was played alot, it ended up turning people away from how great a tune it is. It simply expresses how a woman in love is betrayed by her lover and Niecy says it all when she sings,"love, oh love, stop making a fool of me." Sometimes feelings just need to be simply said. And anybody who ever fell hard for someone can relate to "Silly," "You're All that Matters," and "It's Your Conscience." I love the optimism of "What Two Can Do." And the love and peace of mind expressed in "Sweet Surrender" could easily be addressing love in this world or beyond. To me this is one of Niecy's best albums, a great showcase for her vocal and songwriting talents."
This is what it means to be a singer

"Niecey did it again. She sparkled, she dazzled, and she manipulated her audience by commanding her sultry angelic voice to lure and entice the feelings and thoughts of her audience. This is one of my favorite albums that Ms. Williams ever created. Because it has two of my favorite songs: "Silly" and "strangers." Although most of the popular audience will find "silly" as the best song on the album, due to its popular play on old school radio, I do not. I thought that the song "strangers" was a brilliant and better masterpiece. And in my opinion one of Deniece Williams best songs. The introduction to "Strangers" begins with the high angelic soprano timbre that many of today's superstars like Beyonce, Ashanti, and even Alisha Keyes do not have. The music for the song speaks for itself. The strings of the violin, the beating of the drums, the musical notes of the guitars all contribute in creating a powerful musical masterpiece, yet it never overpowers Deniece's voice one bit. As she sings "Strangers" her voice joins the chorus of the orchestra yet it is never looses its strength or power. As she says goodbye to her lover for the last time in "strangers' you feel the closing stages of a lost love. Unlike the music acts of today with phonies such as Beyonce, Britney Spears, and Ashanti who rely on their physical charms and unfortunately and shamelessly called Divas. Ms. Williams is a true diva of music. Her grace, elegance, and flair formulate a true diva of R&B and soul. Thus, the album entrenches music, love, and superb lyrical composition and conveys the essence of true soul music."
This a great CD!

"Each and every song has a great melody and she sings them like she owns them. Unlike a lot of today's R&B singers, Niecey was the real thing. She stood out like a blazing star back then. Her voice is unmistakable!

On this dynamite project, she gives great songs! Back then, who needed a musical project with 13 songs with at least 8 of them as filler, when you could just punch it through the roof with a solidified 8 perfect songs! On this Cd, you get the sweet, the tasty, the delicious and all for the discriminating listener. I own this CD and it stays in heavy rotation, just at the album did when it first came out. You can't pick one song off this CD that isn't melodic or easy on the ears and spirit."
