A Fantastic Album

I would put this right up there with "Rapture". The setting is jazzy and consistent. The music is of a purity we don't hear anymore in any genre. Pick this up for the original versions of Talk to Me and Fairy Tales. They are longer but are well worth the length.

A must for R+B

I am new to i tunes -when my daughter brought me my 1st ipod- I went straight to this album to download. This is one of the best R+B albums ever!!!! You can not be a Anita Baker fan without adoring this album.

Ms. Baker

I know folks will say "Rapture" is her best, but listen to this album from beginning to end a few times, and you will find yourself undulating to every rhythmic rise and fall of her flowing voice. "Talk To Me" and "Fairy Tales" are perhaps her best up-tempo songs ever. "Perfect Love Affair" up and sweeps you away and sets you up for what's to come.

"Whatever It Takes" is the closest any artist can get to a true slow groove. "Soul Inspiration" is a terrific song that makes you smile, especially if you are a man. "Lonely" is light and jazzy, and reminds you that her band is tight! "No One To Blame" shows that Ms. Baker has impeccable tempo and timing.

"More Than You Know" showcases her knack for hitting a low note, then pulling it mid-range so deftly…it's seems effortless.

Finally, "Love You To The Letter" - my favorite! It is an amazing song. Ms. Baker caresses each note, word, and phrase with playfulness, immense warmth and feeling, it makes my heart melt!

"Compositions" is her best and most charming album, and that is saying a lot!

With her classy, refined brand of romantic soul, Anita Baker was one of the definitive quiet storm singers of the '80s. Gifted with a strong, supple alto, Baker was influenced not only by R&B, but jazz, gospel, and traditional pop, which gave her music a distinctly adult sophistication. Smooth and mellow, but hardly lifeless, it made her one of the most popular romantic singers of her time. Baker was born January 26, 1958, in Toledo, Ohio, and raised in nearby Detroit, where she grew up listening...
