    Rebellious Soul doesn't have quite the impact of Michelle's 2010 mixtape, What's the 901?--curiously, there's little fighting talk here to match the superb Hit 'Em in the Mouth--but it has enough to confirm the emergence of a vital voice.

    A compact, lyrically diverse debut, Rebellious Soul makes it plain that K. Michelle should be supported enough to reverse her albums-to-mixtapes ratio.

    K. Michelle’s aiming for the sweaty pathos of Mary J. Blige, and sometimes, as on “Sometimes” and “Damn,” she comes close. What she’s missing is restraint.

    Flop moments aside though, Rebellious Soul ticks the prerequisite boxes of classic r’n'b: confessional tales of love, loss and longing sung with passion and sincerity.

    The music doesn’t channel the rebellion alluded to the in the album’s title.

Michelle's vocals really well. Musically I was most impressed with "Sometimes". It shows off her vocal chords the best and has that 70's classic heartbreak soul/r&b sound which I love. I think on the other tracks they didn't serve her vocals as good as the "Sometimes" track does. Either way, I loved the album, "Sometimes" just resonated with me the most. Expand
