Album Review

Mary J. Blige has come a long way since 1992's breakthrough, What's the 411?, and that's made very clear on this solid disc. The singer/songwriter has blossomed into an all-out R&B diva — with a hip-hop edge — full of soul and command. Her songs on this recording exude the wisdom of a woman who's seen it all and has found her center. The woman's voice is truly inimitable. It's husky, strong, soulful, and full of maturity. She can still flow like no one's business, too; just check out the bouncy album opener "Love." While love is a common theme, No More Drama is essentially a personal journey through evolution and spirituality. The final cut, "Testimony," best summarizes the album's theme: finding what's real in life. For Blige, that's self-love and God. Blige has a killer instinct for penning lyrics that people can relate to and creating gritty, thick, and soul-infused R&B fare. Her music is more than heard. It is felt, and audiences would be hard-pressed to not surrender to her groove. [No More Drama was re-released in early 2002 with a handful of different tracks.]

Customer Reviews

Good... not Great

Although MJB is an unbelievable talent, “No More Drama” is just good. Family Affaire is the best song here. Mary is capable of greatness (which can be heard on “The Breakthrough”). If you are a true Mary J. Blige fan, you must buy this album, but if you want her heard her at her best, “What’s the 411?” and “The Breakthrough” are the way to go.

Incredible album, one of her best!

The album, No More Drama, starts on a crazy note with a unique blend of notes in the song Love. The next song, Family Affair, was destined to be a hit, with its catchy chorus and head bopping beats. The third track, Steal Away, is a hard-hitting track with heavy vocals. Crazy Games has a nice set of rhymes, but is almost filler. Keep It Movin', the next track, Mary does her thing when she perfects every word in a fusion of beats. Where I've Been has slightly boring lyrics, but the soft, relaxing beat makes up for it. Beautiful Day, the seventh track sounds like a song off of an India.Arie album, peaceful and smooth. 2 U has one of the best choruses of the album. In The Meantime is another soft ballad. Forever No More is spoken, where Mary is true to her word. Testimony closes off No More Drama on a melodious note.


mary j is an inspiration to so many people i like this album because it shows her maturing and saying that she is going to keep it movin and even now she is still movin.ROCK ON GIRL!!!!!


Born: January 11, 1971 in New York, NY [The Bronx]

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

When her debut album, What's the 411?, hit the street in 1992, critics and fans alike were floored by its powerful combination of modern R&B with an edgy rap sound that glanced off of the pain and grit of Mary J. Blige's Yonkers, New York childhood. Called alternately the new Chaka Khan or new Aretha Franklin, Blige had little in common stylistically with either of those artists, but like them, she helped adorn soul music with new textures and flavors that inspired a whole generation of musicians....
