Fast forward four years to November of 2001. Because of the September 11 attacks, Allure's sophomore album was heavily underpromoted by MCA, a label widely known for its lack of promoting good artists while pushing so-so artists to the forefront. It's a shame, for this album could easily be the most overlooked album of 2001.
If you don't have it, get it. Why? Because there is not one song on this album that is a misstep. Allure had a hand in co-writing four songs on this album, versus having a whole album done by Mariah Carey. Also, whereas their debut album showcased safe vocals with sugary mid-range notes, Allure shows true development in their vocal versatility and shows you they can truyl saaang. Not convinced? Check out the song "Earn my Trust", a song that will have you thinking of the old-school song "Have You Seen Her". This song was produced by Full Force and showcases the women's voices wonderfully; easily the best song vocally on the album. "Never Let You Go" has that same effect; sure, the song is a bit cliche' but it flows nicely, and the high note at the end will have you saying "whoa!" A cannot-miss song is "The Shore (Wanna Be Your Lady)", featuring a then-unknown Miri Ben-Ari. The song just has that laid-back feeling with a hint of diva thrown in for good measure.
For more vocal effect, definitely check out the interludes. "Love Me", immediately following "Enjoy Yourself", is beautifully arranged and sung. Akissa starts it off with a nice Spanglish (Spanish and English) voiceover with Hem-Lee cooing in the background. This interlude should have definitely been a full song, for it is impressive. Also, the gospel interlude "Only For A While" shows that harmony that the girls have obviously perfected. This could have easily been performed acappella at any gospel outlet and won rave reviews!
There are some good upbeat joints to dance to. "Enjoy Yourself", the first single, is a nice "I'm-finna'go-out-to-the-club" anthem that will have you bopping your head. And if the intro song "Bump" featuring a nice rap from Nucci Rey O (whoever that is, he still can spit) doesn't get you moving, then you are just a lame! "Kool Wit Me", produced by the AllStars, has the classic AllStars beat and even has some elements of the 80s, but still is a good listen.
Allure definitely came hard with this album. It's just sad that MCA practically dropped this album with barely any mention or promotion. If you don't have this album, pick it up...trust me, you will not be disappointed.
I read one reviewer's comment that compared this group to others who emerged in 2001 when this was released and can't help but feel sad about the comparisons because the groups mentioned were "girls" while the members of this group are "women" so it's kind of like apples & oranges to compare the song content & arrangements. It's also what's so sad about the r&b field from about the late 90's till now - the addition of the hip hop element has made anyone who is trying to sing traditional r&b virtually obsolete.
Anyway this disc features more mid-tempo & ballad tracks but I appreciate this as it allowed me to enjoy the vocal performances more. I think that if I'd known this group was working on a sophomore set, I would've expected more tracks like those on their debut & more input from Mariah Carey but I'm quite satisfied with this album and consider it a good progession from their debut.
The stand-out tracks to me are: SUNNY DAY, EARN MY TRUST, WORE OUT YOUR WELCOME, LADY, CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT YOU & ENJOY YOURSELF.
listen and now that I can listen to it, it's a great album.
Bump (feat. Nucci Rey O)
This is a fun, very hip-hop, dancefloor song. This song is also
referred to 'Bounce'. But, anyway,
this is a fun song and really should be a single. Mid-tempo beat,
but the beat BUMPs it's way through your system. Great opener.
Kool Wit Me
The second commercial release off this album. This is a R&B Disco
dancefloor song. It will probably have a good video. Mid-tempo
song but is tied for most upbeat song with BUMP. This speeds up
Wore Out Your Welcome
Another mid-tempo song. Most of it was arranged from Lil' Mo, whose album is in stores now. But, going back to the song, it has
a great bridge which opens the few fifteen seconds of the song.
I don't skip over it, but I don't listen to it that much. But it
is a good song.
Enjoy Yourself/Love Me
Enjoy Yourself is a mid-tempo song about partying and having a good time. The first commercial release of the album. A good song. Love Me is an interlude that is beautiful but slow.
Mid-tempo with a weird beat but good harmonizing
Never Let You Go
Maybe my favorite off the CD because it's slow, touching, and I
hope it's released because it could do very well in relating to
the Sept. 11th WTC Attacks. And more people would buy the CD, because this CD has had a lack of promotion. But this is a great
song, at least listen to the sample, please.
Can't Live Without You
Mid-tempo, but I haven't really listened to it before.
The Shore (Wanna Be Your Lady)
Mid-tempo, but more of upbeat, has a lot of strings, etc. But like Can't Live Without You, I haven't really listened to it, but
I've listened to most of it and I like it!
Earn My Trust
Sounds good, but haven't listened to it.
Only For A While - Interlude
A Good gospel interlude definetely worth checking out. Great interlude.
A very happy song that you'll most likely love. Very upbeat.
HOPE YOU LOVE THIS CD AS MUCH AS I DO,
A music fan
