Should be in the Album of the Year mix when GRAMMY nominations are announced. Expand

    All the songs were very good. The only problem was the album was sooo long.

    The Album lacks the excess of short tracks with great potential and some long feats but still teyana shows more of its versatility and melodic vocals !!

    La pupilo de Kanye West deja de lado a su mentor para enfocarse con más libertad en un trabajo más personal. The Album, que cuenta con 23 canciones, es una muestra radiante de producción pero falta lamentable de cohesión. Algunas canciones no terminan en ningún lado y quedan opacadas y suenan vacías. Pero las que logran resaltar hacen más llevadero el ritmo en conjunto. Miss Taylor nosLa pupilo de Kanye West deja de lado a su mentor para enfocarse con más libertad en un trabajo más personal. The Album, que cuenta con 23 canciones, es una muestra radiante de producción pero falta lamentable de cohesión. Algunas canciones no terminan en ningún lado y quedan opacadas y suenan vacías. Pero las que logran resaltar hacen más llevadero el ritmo en conjunto. Miss Taylor nos transporta directamente a los 90 mientras juega a sumergirse en sonidos y beats más contemporáneos con sutileza y glamur con sus bien trabajadas melodías. Con liricas algo rebuscadas pero que no dejan ser frescas y fascinantes aunque algo desequilibradas en general.

    At first, it is very long. There are such a lot of interpolations, a lot of short tracks and it seems to be interesting only from the middle forward.

    None eclipse "Request" off VII, but the Kehlani collaboration "Morning" is a seductive delight, while the snaking (and accurately titled) "Boomin" is a treat for lovers of late-'90s R&B with explicit references to Blaque and much of the Swing Mob (plus an appearance from the latter's Missy Elliott). Confident diversions into breezy Afro-pop and underwater dancehall lead to a half-hour stretch covering various romantic woes.

    It sags in the fourth section, where Taylor perhaps overcompensates for the brevity of K.T.S.E. with one too many ballads. Still, for an album that lives mostly in the slow- and mid-tempo, it frisks and frolics.

    Teyana Taylor is a good singer, capable of shifting between a soft lilt on “Lowkey” and a strident punch on “We Got Love.” But she tends to sound like others, particularly Brandy. She hasn’t quite absorbed her influences into a vocal presence all her own.
