Chapter II – The Voice

CD (Item 562218) Jive, 2002 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.50 40

A surprisingly great album from Syl Johnson's daughter! Syleena's got a bit of a bite in her vocals – almost a touch of blues, showing her link to the rich soul lineage of which her father was a part – but she's also working here with some sweet modern arrangements, bubbling under in a mix of NuSoul and current R&B approaches, nicely taking Syleena's rootsy vocals into a classier setting – and making of a compelling juxtaposition that really grabs us right away! Titles include "Faithful To You", "Now That I Got You", "So Willingly", "I Believe In Love", "Tonight I'm Gonna Let Go", and "Guess What".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

At the time of this album's original release, the Neptunes had yet to take over the world, so it barely saw the light of day.

These guys have really grown up a lot over the years – moving bast the simple, stiff beats that first marked their music – into a sound that's much warmer, much jazzier overall! There's a pretty spontaneous vibe to the set – almost a live jazz funk vibe that comes across with a ... CD

It's been almost five years since we last heard from Gordon Chambers – and in that time, he's really come into his own! This set's easily Chambers' best so far – tight, focused, and served up with the sort of energy that should have him crossing over to a much wider audience – ... CD

A bit of a guilty pleasure – but a pretty darn great batch of smooth soul tracks, percolated through with popping beats on most tracks, but also awash in warm keyboards that fit perfectly with Kenny's stretched out vocal approach. Think of D'Angelo with a bit of a mainstream R&B twist, ... CD

Gal's always been one of Brazil's greatest artists – whether she was singing strange raw tunes during her Tropicalia period, or moving into nice jazzy material during her later years. This set's a good introduction to her work, and it includes a lot of nice tracks that we don't always turn ... CD
