iTunes Review

Fans who have loved and respected Angie Stone for her maturity and understated musical approach might be surprised by “Tell Me,” a stomping club beat that features heavily auto-tuned vocals. But you have to give Stone some leeway — she's one of the most powerful and underrated female voices in contemporary music, and if she wants to write a song that will get her into the club with the youngsters, she's earned the right. In any case, the rest of Unexpected, Stone’s fifth studio album, features some of the singer’s most intimate material. “Maybe” and “Why Is It” address the hardship and frustration of relationships, but rather than sensationalize the issues, Stone treats them with the poise and slightly wearied wisdom of a 48-year-old woman. Because she isn’t working under the rules of today’s pop/R&B scene, Stone’s dance songs —“I Ain’t Hearin’ U” and “Hey Mr. DJ”— feel timeless, and have more in common with classic songs by strong female singers like Diana Ross and Lauryn Hill. The centerpiece is “I Don’t Care,” a brooding song about perseverance and self-empowerment that could be used as a mantra for the kind of smart, grown-up women for whom Stone speaks.

Love Angie Stone,

But it's a shame when true artist have to submit to AUTOTUNES to stay current.

What's happening to OUR music.

Do not Soul Out!

I like the new album. But I do not love it. I know most artist are trying to stick with the times, but the music world needs cream of the crop neo soul artist to stay true to the genre. It is one of the last genres that has music with a feeling and purpose, and I am dissapointed with the releases of Musiq Soulchild and others who step out of a sphere they are desperately needed in. Angie you are a gifted artist who can sing anything, but your greatest gift to the music world is your soulfulness. Do not try to be average in bigger genres that have nothing but average artist in it. You are a superior artist, who truly glows in your soulfulness. Still copped the album though...cuzz I love ya!!!!

She's Back!!!

The wait is finally over! Love the album and Angie looks great! Hope to catch you on tour Angie!

A singer, MC, self-taught keyboardist, and prolific songwriter, Angie Stone's first claim to fame was her membership in the Sequence, an all-female trio that recorded for pioneering hip-hop label Sugar Hill beginning with the 1979 single "Funk You Up." Several years later, she re-emerged as the lead vocalist for Vertical Hold, where she scored with the smooth urban dance track "Seems You're Much Too Busy," a Top 40 R&B hit during the summer of 1993 that led to very productive solo career.
