Smoke Notes

Southern soul at its very finest, Angie Stone makes the sort of gospel influenced R&B that Al Green made his own, and with album number three she confirms her status as the finest voice in Black music. The album is typically varied with more hip-hop orientated material sitting alongside pure acoustic soul and the odd ballad. Opener I Wanna Thank Ya has hit single written all over it, Snoop Dogg adds a verse with Jazzee Pha delivering an exotic Latin influenced beat. Lovers Ghetto is built around a classic disco sample yet is all slow and subtle, and beautifully sung in complete confidence. That Kind Of Love unites Stone with an obvious heroine, 70s legend Betty Wright, in a stunning duet. The result is a collaboration that oozes feeling and grace. Stones lyrics deal in the same topics as most modern R&B singers - love, loss and trust are the big subjects - but Stone has a voice that you never doubt, and for that reason no matter what she pleads and suggests we are completely convinced by it. Stone Love is a breath of fresh air in an overcrowded environment of digital soul, a record built on classic principles that deserves your attention. This is one of those albums that makes a bad day better and brings a smile to your face - an album to recommend to friends as some sort of therapy. Angie Stone is keeping alive the "traditional" soul flame - and we can only hope it doesnt burn out. Recommended.
