Note: I did a review of this album many moons ago but it was long winded & boring, so I took it down until I could think of saying something more concise. The following is a much shorter version of my original review.
May J. is an artist signed to the Sony Music Japan label. Most of her music is within the Hip-Hop influenced side of R&B. She also has a few pop songs which are (not surprisingly) ballads. Baby Girl is her first full length album & it contains several previously released singles. (DO tha’ DO tha’, Dear… & Here We Go) The album tracks that stood out for me were the D.O.I. Hip-Hop Mix of Destination, why why why…, YOU & the DJ Watari Remix of Baby Eyes. I’m paticularly fond of why why why… just because it has such a simple beat but manages to keep you hooked throughout. This is the kind of track that could be ruined by an unnecessary guest rapper & thankfully that didn’t happen.
YOU comes in a close second. I think it’s the strongest of the 3 ballads on the album. I found it rather soothing but not in a boring way. The last track to take note of is the FPM House Mix of Love Blossom. Unlike most tacked on House mixes on albums, this is a full length mix. I found that to be a nice touch. This paticular mix isn’t my flavor of House though. It’s a little too poppy for my liking but I added it to my SSL record box anyway.
Normally I’m wary of any R&B albums. Most tend to wear out their welcome quickly, but this is an exception. There’s some quality material here.
