Album Review: Jill Scott: The Light of the Sun

Jill Scott
The Light of The Sun

I feel like I'm going through Deja Vu. I'm about to repeat everything I said about Tech N9ne's album. The first quarter of the album is meh at best. The reason why I like R&B like this is because of potential emotional intensity, but the first 6 songs seem to be more about how much just plain weird stuff Scott can get away with, including a scat session that comes out of nowhere with Doug E. Fresh (All Cried Out Redux. )

She makes up big time with the song "Hear My Call", but it doesn't stick. I won't lie to you when the album is good it's really good, but most of it seems to lack emotional intensity as Scott tries to find the endless groove. A lot of it seems to be style over the type of substance I've come to expect.
