FUGEES "greatest hits"  cd, 2003:

shortlived American soul/reggae/hip-hop band...
they only released two albums plus this compilation...
I thought I liked these guys (well, gal and two guys)…
I guess I was wrong...
dislike all but two on here and the two I do like are covers,
Marley's "no woman no cry" and Roberta's "killing me softly"...
anyway, they made enough money off that Roberta Flack cover to live
comfortably for the rest of their lives, so no need to shed a tear for their short career...
I DO NOT LIKE THIS ALBUM

CURTIS MAYFIELD "the very best of..." cd,  1997:

one of the forgotten, underrated stars of soul/R+B/Funk...
former lead vocalist for Impressions...
discovered this dude back in the early 1980s when The Jam covered his 
"move on up" track....
his songs are full of social commentary/political statements, much the same as
Stevie's "innervisions" and Marvin's "whats goin' on?" but Curtis did it first....
three standout tracks on here for me, "move on up", "superfly" and the one ive
chosen...I LOVE THIS ALBUM

as a footnote. and by pure coincidence a four cd boxset containing Curtis' first four solo albums
are being released today as part of the 50th Anniversary of the commencement of his solo recording career!

RIHANNA "loud"  cd,  2010

y'all probably surprised I own a Rihanna album, then again, you might not LOL...
her fifth of eight, only one I own...
would have originally got it for "I love the way you lie pt II", the follow up to the
hugely successful hit duet with Eminem...
as it happens this is a superb album of pop/dance/r+b…
featured artists include Eminem, Drake, Britney and dare I say it, Minaj...
love most of this album, this is what the genre should be IMO...
I LOVE THIS ALBUM
