A slight change of direction for Erykah to a more edgy, political lyric style that is very 70's funky soul inspired (think Undisputed Truth) and takes a few spins to get into. 'Amerykahn Promise' is a 70's style funky dancer with horns cover of Ramp's track. 'Me' a nice horn backed midtempo shuffler produced by SA-RA (as is the funky soul 'Cell'). 'Real Thang' as another funky soul track sampling Clarence Reid 'Nobody But You Babe', the riff laden single 'Honey' continues the same path. the highlights are more more typically Erykah hip hop soul 'Solder' and the beautiful chilling tribute to J Dilla 'Telephone' co written with James Poysner. This album takes time to appreciate but is well worth it when you get there.
