On their impressive debut Road to Freedom, the fiercely political Young Disciples offer muscular funk garnished with jazz, hip-hop and R&B flourishes. The majority of vocals are handled by Carleen Anderson, whose low, smoky voice at times brings to mind the likes of Chaka Khan, Anita Baker and Oleta Adams. The production is clever and unpredictable; gospel organs open "Get Yourself Together" and then fade into the oncoming beats, while airy guitars introduce "Talkin' What I Feel" before pulling a similar about-face when confronted with some surging hip-hop rhythms.
A timeless under-rated album
This album was given to me for my birthday some 10 or more years ago and remains a favourite to this day. As a first album and introduction to the vocal delights of Carleen Anderson, it in my opinion is beter than her first solo album that follwed, when the YD grouping seemed to disappear. The Young Desicples grouping showed great originality and flare that still seems fresh today with great bass lines and vocals. A very underrated album of it's time.
One of the greatest albums ever
