by Angie Stone
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Saguaro Road Rhythm
"If I had a dollar for every time you had lied, I would be a rich girl," sings Angie Stone. It's a pessimistic theme for her sixth album, but Stone is too much of a quiet storm romantic to summon the necessary vitriol. When she sings "Backup Plan," as in every woman should have a "backup" for a cheating guy, she does it sweetly, and she celebrates partying with her girlfriends on "Livin' It Up" with little care for those difficult men. The music is smooth and placid with a few unexpected twists, like the soft funk of "First Time" and the acid-jazz groove of "Right in Front of Me."
