Chupacabra

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
The debut album by Imani Coppola is a strong, confident pop album that never found its niche in the mainstream. Although boosted by the success of "Legend of a Cowgirl" and her exposure on Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair tour, the album was overlooked in a summer filled with successful female pop musicians. This is too bad because Coppola explodes with charm and talent on the 11 tracks that make up Chupacabra. The frantic rhythms mesh nicely with her rich voice on tracks like "I'm a Tree" and "Soon I Like It" while her personality shines through on the pleasantly egotistical "It's All About Me, Me, and Me" and on the Donovan-sampled "Legend of a Cowgirl." Even ballads ...

Even ballads like "Pigeon Penelope" are beautiful affairs that stay far away from the whispering acoustic affairs that her contemporaries are known for. Coppola left the mainstream recording industry after a failed attempt at a second album, making this even more of a lost treasure. Fans of funky, energetic female pop will want to find this album -- they will not be disappointed.

    One of the best CDs ever!

    I bought this CD six years ago and I still listen to it a lot. Very few CDs are so good. I love her style and her sense of humor. I really like her mix of different genres and the fact that each song is different. I also like the fact that she plays violin. It adds a new feel to the music.

    Hip-hop meets pop meets soul

    I bought this album back in '97 based on the song ''Legend of a Cowgirl.'' I put it away and 3 years later picked it up again. Not only did I still like that song, but discovered that the album is just as good, just as fresh maybe even more so today. Coppola combines witty lyrics to great beats. She also plays the violin on several of her tracks. This is definitely hip-hop lite, but it's fun, and I dare you not to turn up the volume on ''Legend of a Cowgirl.''
