Album Review

Macy Gray is such an assured, original, vocalist that it's hard to believe On How Life Is is her debut album. She recalls a number of other vocalists, particularly jazz singers like Billie Holiday and Nina Simone; but she is unquestionably from the post-hip-hop generation, which is evident not just from the sound of the record, but the style of her songwriting, which is adventurous and unpredictable.

And when it works, it soars higher than most contemporary R&B. [The Australian version includes "Rather Hazy" as a bonus track.]
