Album Notes
ALBUM REVIEW by Kenny Love:

Discovering Urban/R&B Recording Artist Rosie Gaines, is akin to discovering a treasure map, the treasure, then to find that the X-spot is actually housed in a vault of gold.

Ill explain...

Upon hearing her wonderfully flexible voice on "Stomp," Track 5 on her new CD, "Arrival," that captures the best assets of Chaka, Aretha, and Patti, I initially thought, "Okay, great! She got one off, but what's the rest of the music like?" I soon discovered that I was not to be shortchanged.

I, subsequently, realized that not only is she a stellar self-producer, meaning she takes a hands-on approach to every aspect regarding her music, including playing all instruments, singing, and engineering, she also has some impressive music industry history and affiliations.

Such affiliations as having been a member of Prince's New Power Generation band, and at one time, signed by his own Paisley Park label, as well as Motown and Epic. But, thats not all...she has also been managed by Soul Trains Don Cornelius, and has penned songs for Patti Labelle, one of which won a grammy! Whew! Now, as I catch my breath, Ill briefly caption each of the CD selections:

1. "Arrival" - The title track takes no prisoners with its upbeat, no-sit-still funk/dance mood. Interestingly, this selection is reminiscent of Tina
Turners attitude.

2. "Want An Angel" - A beautiful crying prayer of a loving single mother. Actually brings tears, if youre not careful. I, however, was unsuccessful at being careful.

3. "Junkies on the Corner" - A sad retrospect of society, and of how the most distant aspects of it are inter-connected, though much of is in denial.

4. "We Cant Go On Like This" - A long-overdue message speaking to us all regarding our daily cultural struggles.

5. "Stomp" - If you can sit still on this selection, youre dead. Dont bother checking your pulse, life as you know it is over, and rigor mortis has doubly set in.

6. "Dont Let Em" - Yet another powerful dance groove, this one makes you unleash yourself (even if youre dead) while delivering the positive message of not letting others get you down.

7. "Yeah!" Neo-Aretha! The culmination of the ultimate positive feeling in one this point, the only expression possible.

8. "Beautiful World" - Provides a perfect contradiction as the positive chorus plays the backdrop to several, somewhat, dark parables within its verses.

9. "Shake Out the Blue" - A very nice, sassy, and lively uptempo selection with Jazzy mid-tones. Segues into a Caribbean flavor very effectively.

10. "Sun Moon" - A galaxial reflection addressing the effects the heavenly bodies can have on us.

Flaws? Yes... 1 ...And, that is, that I dont yet have the physical CD in my hands yet. However, it is on its way.

The time has a new Arrival
The album has been one awaited 4 some time. From beginning 2 end it has captured ur mind and soul. The words from - We can't go on - will paint a picture of what's going on. Shake out the blue - is a reggae shaker song with a twist. Sun Moon - is a reminder of what great slow song are from Prince. Arrival is like a future song that is telling us what is left of the desert*****. Need an angel - is one that everyone of my friends have heard and love it. Junkies on the corner - is a story 2 be told and understood better than any other storyteller. Of all the songs ever heard - beautiful world - is a true sound of what this world is really all about. Thanks
