Having proved herself with 2001's rough and tough Scorpion, Eve changed direction slightly for Eve-Olution. The focus here is less hip-hop and more contemporary R&B, with fewer rappers invited as guests -- only appear on only two tracks, "Hey Y'All" features Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg and the Scorpion sequel "Double R What" features Jadakiss and Styles. After the intro, Eve focuses squarely on neo-soul. The productions keep the groove going coutresy of the beatheads behind the boards Irv Gotti, Dr. Dre, Swizz Beatz, and Poke & Tone. ("Irresistible Chick" features a smooth Irv Gotti production that's moving almost as fast as Eve's fluid raps. There are a few tough-love tracks along the lines of Scorpion's "You Had Me, You Lost Me" and "You Ain't Gettin' None," and a nod to her Ruff Ryders past with "Ryde Away." [The album is also available in this clean version.]

I think Eve is sooo sexy!! She's come a long way and Im glad to see she's finally being appreciated, in movies, tv, and her music. EVE whenever you're ready to get married I'm here 4 u!!!!!!!!!!!!
This new CD by the one and only EVE is the best yet!!! She keeps on coming back with HOT new songs and a different persona every time. I give this CD 5 stars!!!
I really enjoy listening to the first lady in the ruff riders click. You don't see a lot a chicks doing what they gotta do so give it up 2 EVE!!!!!!!!1
I love the tracks on this record. The lyrics are unbeatable. I just wish I knew what it sounded like because this guy stabbed me in my ears with a pair of scissors and I can't hear anything now.
Hot not only describes Eve but it also describes her latest cd Eve-olution. This is her best work to date. You can listen to this cd from start to finish with blazing beats and super producers like Dre working on her album with guest apperarences by Snoop, Jadakis, Truth Hurts, Alicia keys just to name a few this is one of the best albums of the year and a must for any real cd collectors.
Satisfaction is is a GREAT song! I can't stop listening to it! Eve is a great singer! Buy this cd, I bet you'll love it!
My Philly GURL has done it again! You can hear the maturity in her voice and in her words. I would definitly reccomend this to anyone, she is a women that many could never compare too! Th beats are hot, the words are real, and the cameo's are true
