CD Reviews

Best album for 2009. Totally underrated. Why can't she explo

"First off, I love Kid Sister. I have seen her twice in concert and the only copy of URB magazine I own is the one where she is on it. She is amazing and is totally passed to the side. Bothers me all the time too. I have purchased this album 5 times to give as stocking stuffers for friends at Christmas. She is Old School Hip-Hop mixed with 90's dance shenanigans. She is good, on a super INDIE label called Fool's Gold. She is similar in flare to M.I.A. and much better than Lady Gaga. If you like old school hip hop like Salt N Pepa or Missy Elliot or Da Brat then check her out. I recommend checking out her website and listening to either LIFE ON TV or GET FRESH. Those songs are great and fun to dance to."
FUN! FUN! FUN!

"KID SISTER wakes me up in the morning instead of a cup of coffee. The very first track sets me off on a cardio explosion and I feel happy working it out before sunrise! Right now, I'm crushin" on STEP (featuring Estelle), they are banging together on that track very well. Then the KID slides into LET ME BANG 2009 which is funky and fresh. Seriously, my feet were moving from RIGHT HAND HI until she slows it down just a bit on DAYDREAMING. Something about LIFE ON TV reminded me of Saturday morning watching That's So Raven with the kids. This album is NOT deep and serious, yet, KID SISTER has some pretty amusing lyrics.

The entire album is crisp, yet, a throwback. That's what I like about it. It's new, but not new. It brings back memories of how hip-hop used to be, how it is, currently; how wonderful to hear a female MC. But then, ULTRAVIOLET isn't just hip-hop. Some tunes have a POP edge; there's singing and techno dance hall stuff going on, too. Like Kid Sister says, "Nobody is doing what she's doing.""
WOW!

"In my opinion this is a love it or hate it album. You'll either be completely annoyed by Kid Sister's over-the-type style or you'll receive it as something cute N' fun. SURPRISINGLY I ABSOLUTELY love this album. I haven't been a fan of the modern hip-Hop sound I prefer Old Skool'(80's) Rap/Hip-Hop, Which is most likely why I adore Kid Sister's album so much. It's such a throwback, This album is fun, and it shouldn't be taken seriously.

Describing The Sound:

I would call this a clash of Hip-Hop, Crunk "Rap" fused with Trance/Electronica and 80's/Pop undertones. It all comes together as pure HOT POP/DANCE music. The production is excellent, It actually sounds like QUALITY work (Not Trash) like I was expecting. The songs are VERY MELODIC and catchy, The "Rap Verses" are just Kid Sister cuttin' up and gettin' funky. Even though I DO NOT have a clue what she's talking about at times the BEATS and HOOKS are fantastic and memorable, You'll be singing along in NO TIME at all. It's DEFINITELY PARTY MUSIC, The energy is remeniscent of 80's pop/dance that was referred to on the radio as the AQUANETTE-SET, Freestyle songs like "Diamond Girl" or stuff by Expose' and Covergirl with some Salt'N'Pepa in the mix. Imagine Kid Sister rapping to the beat of "Fresh" by Kool And The Gang... If you like that thought you'll apprectiate this album.

Favorite songs right off the back:

"Right Hand Hi" "Life On TV" "Daydreaming" "Switch Board" "5-4-3-2-1" "Get Fresh" "You Ain't Really Down" & Of course "Pro Nails". (8) Favorites out of (12) calls for a (5) star rating. I'm just so shocked at how much I like this album. I never wouldv'e thought...
