Album Review

Goapele’s earlier releases are not short on dreamy, slightly trippy content, but she refines and intensifies that mode on Break of Dawn, her first release since 2005’s Change It All. Her debut for the Decon label, Break of Dawn is slinking and seductive, largely switching between low-key electronic quiet storm and Southern-style throwback ballads with support from the likes of Bedrock, Malay, Krucial, Bobby Ozuna, and the duo Electric Thunderbolt. During the album’s middle third, Goapele breaks from heartache and desire, covering perseverance on the title track, motherhood on “Hush,” and love over wealth on the 1987-Prince-indebted “Money.”

Customer Reviews

GREAT!!! Must have For Love and Yeah Yeah Yeah

Fans were clamouring for more and Goapele and her team delivered! The Deluxe version of Break of Dawn adds four tracks to last year's release. Highlighted by the new song, For You - and a live performance favorite, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, the Deluxe version adds depth to the soulful funk of Play, and Milk + Honey. Undertow, and the bluesy Tears on My Pillow complete a FIVE-STAR album that is worthy of any music aficionado's library. ...Goapele sets herself apart from others in her genre with her thoughtful lyrics, and by surrounding herself with talented musicians. The result is uncompromising R and B - that in my opinion surpasses the output of her contemporaries. ...Follow Goapele on Twitter @Goapele ...See her LIVE!
