    Riding Music

    This disc is evenly outstanding from beginning to end. In my opinion, the album is at it's best from track 7 (Detroit Girl) to 14 (Save Us). Thats not to say the songs before that are bad, they're good too. It's my personal opion as to when the album begins to kick into oerdrive. (On my drive from Virginia to NY, "Detroit Girl" was the first song I pressed rewind on) It's a great display of talent with all the live instrumentation. Saadiq kills the bass on "I Want You Back" with Teedra Moses (what a voice) and "I Love Her". The bass guitar with the subtle guitar licks and layed vocals show the skill in the studio to make these songs. Lyrically, Raphael Saadiq is as always a sensitive mofo. But that's a good thing (everybody needs love). The album is definitely for the grown and sexy and I recommend it 1000%.

    I loved RAY RAY!

    As usual Rapheal Saadiq pulls it off again with his musical prowess and style.I loved his cool,funky California "take" on his beautifully sung funky vocals. I have always been a fan of his music and have been opened to his generous musical stylings. "Ray Ray" has definetly achieved what Raphael set out to do--which is Play that Funky Soul music! I loved Chic like you and the song he does with Babyface (track 8) and Rifle Love. The whole Cd is good!

    Raphael Saadiq album

    I always thought that Raphael Saqqdiq has always been talented in his days with tony toni tone, and as a solo artist. I think this album is a gem to what seems to be a outstanding catelog in his career. It's lad back, it's fun, it's mellow. It's something that should have been released in the summer then the laste fall, but no matter, it's just good to hear some "REAL" R&B music instead of what's playing on the radio half the time.
