A must for old and new fans!

BriHiFi,

Everyone knows the power music has on your life, your soul and your memories. No one can explain it. It's something you feel, like love. I can remember the first time I heard her in 1998(in the middle of crowed music store with a pair of headphones on). You know that feeling you get when you hear a artist, song, hook or melody for the first time you just know it's going to change your musical soul for the rest of your life. I can't relate to all of her songs/lyrics but just the sound of her voice affects me (like warm soup on a cold/rainy day). When you listen to her, you just know she was born to to this. She has a unique and beautiful voice(the full spectrum of emotion).
As for this album, it's a loud clap of thunder and lighting in a sea of darkness. I hope that this album leads to a more predictable schedule of albums to come. There's just to much time between albums with the exception of a few songs(gems) featuring her with other artists.

wow.

sapoloca28,

When Esthero First came out over 10 years ago… I fell in love. With her voice, her style… her energy. After Wikked lil grrrls, all I wanted was more Esthero. I just happened to find this album and feel bad saying this but, I am really disappointed. I almost feel as though it's not her. I know that artists are allowed to change their style, and lyrically, her songs are still charged with emotions as they were in the past, but a few songs make me feel like she has been hanging out with some top 40 stars or something. Maybe it's just me, but I am not a fan of this album at all. :-( Esthero, I still love you… just not this record.

About Esthero

Vocalist Esthero was born Jen-Bea Englishman on December 23, 1978, in Ontario, Canada. She moved to Toronto in 1996, and quickly became a fixture at the city's open mikes. There she met Doc (real name: Martin McKinney), an engineer and producer, and the two began working on a demo featuring his programming and her vocals. Sony eventually took interest, and suddenly Esthero went from a fledgling idea to a duo with Esthero's name as their own and a record, Breath from Another, issued in spring 1998 on the label's Work imprint. Breath's mix of beats, lush vocals, and fractured bits of programmed samples caught on perfectly with the trip-hop trend of the time, and Esthero had success with singles like Heaven Sent and the hip-hop-flavored title track.

However, it would take nearly seven years for a follow-up to appear. In the interim Esthero parted ways with Doc and struck out on her own, contributing vocals to projects like Black Eyed Peas' "Weekends" (2000). Signing with Reprise, she began work on new material, and returned officially in summer 2004 with the club single O.G. Bitch. Esthero followed the single in November of that year with We R in Need of a Musical Revolution, an EP that found her collaborating with Sean Lennon, Cee-Lo, and producer James Robertson (Skye Sweetnam) on a 21st century version of Breath's assemblage sound. The EP set up a full-length entitled Wikked Lil' Girls, which was slated for release in early 2005. ~ Johnny Loftus
