SoulNRnB's 11 Lp's of the Noughties YOU MUST OWN!
So, 11 LP's huh? Yeah yeah, 11. Shoot me. It was hard enough getting it down to those.
I dont think theres much to say about the 11 LP's Ive picked except that:
A) You should own them.
B) There are no filler or half hearted attempts to round up the track numbers. Whilst you may not like every single track on these LP's, they are from the heart and artistically sound.
C) Having said that, I would happily listen to each of these LP's from begining to end.
D) Whatever Genre they belong to within Black Music, they are all Soulful.
In no particular Order:
The Rebirth - This Journey In - November 27, 2005
4 Hero - Play With the Changes - February 27, 2007
Raphael Saadiq - Instant Vintage - June 11, 2002
Masters at Work - Our time is coming - April 9, 2002
D'angelo - Voodoo - January 25, 2000
Eric Roberson - Left - June 27, 2007
Donnie - The Coloured Section - October 29, 2002
Slum Village - Fantastic Vol.2 - June 13, 2000
Jill Scott - Beautifully Human: Vol. 2 - August 31, 2004
Foreign Exchange - Leave it all Behind - October 14, 2008
Common - Like Water for Chocolate - March 28, 2000
So. Thats out the way. What I do have to mention are the nearly made its. The Other LP's that I just love that by all rights should be on a list of this type, but for personal reasons arn't.
I dont like a track. Dont like the Album cover. Not "Organic" enough. Too "Organic". Stupid ass shit that you have to nit-pick about so that you can make a list at all. These "Nearly made its" at least deserve a mention, not least so that those who don't own them can purchase them.
