Marvin Sease ~ Breakfast ~ Review #70

Sometimes you just wanna hear pretty music, songs written to make you feel warm and fuzzy all over, songs that say exactly what your heart tells you it feels, all the love you have perfectly sung by your favorite artist to set the mood…

Then there are sometimes you wanna hear something more real, your heart tells you a lot more than just pretty words and melodies sometimes when your in love, it’s just if you choose too wanna listen to it or not lol, and for times like those we have this, songs of lust, desire, infidelity, breakups and everything else you can imagine, it takes a certain kinda of bravery to write this way, on the surface it seems extreme and out there, as my aunt would call it secular music, but to me it was one those we all think of it sort of situations…

Solid album from Marvin as always, I knew what to expect going in but it was still a lot of fun to listen too, takes me back to the beginning of my music journey, it was all gospel, zydeco, and sometimes country back then, I never would have thought an artist dare sing the way he does, I learned beauty in the art of expression, Marvin and a few others let me know that music had no rules, it was a feelings thing and no one should be stifled from what they feel, music didn’t have to sound like what I was used too or anything that I would in the future, after that I wanted to see more, how far could music really go, there had to be more than what I what knew, thus began my journey to the underground, haven’t been back since lol…

Whitney Houston ~ Whitney ~ Review #69

The late 80s and early 90s were such good times for Whitney Houston she was literally a force to be reckoned with, if nothing else she was the face of an entire genre, I wonder the pressure she must have felt to deliver on this her second project, the first was so well received I wonder if she had any doubt she could deliver, she definitely did with this one, all the things with the first that made her a household name were here again in full force, songs to dance too, power ballads of love to sing too, and the signature love song to cry to cry too done if course in typical Whitney fashion, definitely worth a listen for any fan of R&B…
