Album Review

Vivian Green's second album, Vivian, performed even better on the charts than her debut. It hit the Top Ten of the R&B/Hip-Hop chart and the Top 20 of the Billboard 200, yet its overall sales were not as high. Once on Columbia, Green now finds herself on E1 (formerly Koch) for Beautiful, made after she devoted some time to taking care of her young son. Though it arrives almost five years after her previous album and was made on a significantly lower budget — there are no big-name collaborators like James Poyser or Scott Storch here — it won’t throw anyone for a loop, as it sounds just like a Vivian Green album, one that deals with a fair amount of heartache as well as the rush that comes with finding new love. It’s less about big hooks than nuanced arrangements, even on the heavily synthesized/programmed songs, and Green’s lyrics are as easily relatable as ever, especially on the opening “Beautiful,” where she clearheadedly offers advice to an ex.

A Beautiful Disappointment

I am a huge fan of Vivian and was eagerly anticipating this release. Unfortunately, the album seems to be lacking the soul of her first two. The lyrics are messy, the production is unoriginal and overproduced at moments, and, unlike her last two albums, there doesn't seem to be much of a through line. The only standout track, besides the title cut, is "Somewhere".

With all of that being said, her voice is beyond belief and is something to be in awe of. Support true artists and buy this album.

Vivian,,, It's Good

I love vivian green and absolutely love her voice, and this album was good but I didn't feel the soul in it like her other albums. Some tracks I didn't understand them being there but however, it was a good album.... But I can't wait for her to make a GREAT one again! Beautiful and Somewhere are amazing songs!

Welcome Back

I love LOVE Vivian Green. She is fantastic and I wish her all of the success in the world. This is a nice comeback album. Beautiful is almost my favorite song by her, to date.
