Original Release Date: May 19, 1998 Interscope Records

SOLID R. Kelly production. Kellz produced the whole album. Soulstrut folls will like the Eddie Kendricks loop on "Time To Move On" and the fact that Camron is rappin' on the opening track. Great 90s R&B album that was even better then some of R. Kelly's releases around the same time.

    Batmon,

    Really? The "Ray Ray" album? I remember Saadiq's first solo LP being very good but I was not feeling this "Ray Ray" joint. I will need to get my microwave on a give it another listen.

    Neither of them grabbed me too much, but the best tracks on No More Drama and Love&Life could have made for one pretty good record. Makes me want to hear Never Been nice and loud right now...

    I recently returned to Love+Life and I found it to be better than I remembered. Fans of P-Diddy's Soul samples might be alarmed. Its proto-American Ganster P-Diddy production....to a degree. Dont get me wrong.

    But Diddy and his team really got some slow/dramatic Hip Hop-ish soul samples on this album.

    Hmmm, I should go back to it too. I remember liking it better than No More Drama, but not enough to keep at it.

    No More Drama was wierd to me. Love & Life has too many tracks.

    cody chesnutt album is garbage and barely r&b

    ginuwine - 100% ginuwine

    also big stacks is on point re: both rahsaan patterson records

    teedra moses album 'complex simplicity' is hot
    tweet's first album is pretty good
    brandy - full moon
    AALIYAH
    erykah badu
    amerie

    is this any good?



  • teedra moses album 'complex simplicity' is hot


    huge co'sign. almost every track is dope. I remember grabbing this when Tower Records was closing and it??s been one of the few cd??s that I still bump on the regular. Poor girl ended up being a victim of shitty label manuevers I guess.


    Seattle??s Chokolate had a great album as well. Tepid cover art and again she was aon a wack label but girl has a great voice and the production was some hip'hop shit, flawless.




  • don't know how much heat I am going to get for this but that Craig David album was on point. I'd say 80% of the tracks on there I thought were great and I can listen to the whole album all the way through.

  • Funny, I always kind of dug dude on the low. A few weeks ago my girl and I where just wondering ??What happend to dude??. I guess he??s pretty popular in the U.K.

    I like that 7 days primo joint a lot.

    my homie gave me a sampler and I wasnt that impressed, but she does her thang on Saadiq Ray Ray which makes me wanna give her shit a deeper listen.
