“A real cool classic album”

published 27/05/2011

ProFantastic voice, smooth funk, no real filler

ConsNothing

Still feelin that groove Now this is a classic album, one of my abiding memories of Macy Gray is watching this crazy giant of a woman strolling around a stage in Essex some years ago, before launching her microphone stand into the crowd and hitting a woman in the face. To be fair to the girl...

“On how life is”

published 01/05/2001

ProUnique vocal talent

Cons-

When I bought this album, it took me a while to listen to the other tracks because I was constantly listening to the fantastic "I try" and "Still". Once I got passed these tracks, I tried to work out which were the weak "album trackS" that albums seem to have. No matter how hard I try, I can't...

Not for me

“Down at Fraggle Rock”

published 14/07/2005

Proerm not really, better than the Smurfs though

ConsSoul By Numbers

Watching Fraggle rock as a nipper I never realised that Jim Henson would inspire 1999's most promising soul singer. At the time she was hailed as being the new Tina Turner hah is what I have to say to that, to me she looked sounded like and behaved like a demented Fraggle, a bit harsh but an...

“On how Macy Is”

published 15/05/2001

ProSome excellent songs, and a great voice

ConsNot quite as great as it promised to be

When I first heard Macy Gray I was awestruck – here was a singer with talent and a really distinctive style, who, justifiably this time, had become the “next big thing”. It seemed to me that she was one of that elite group of artists that only comes along once every decade or so...

Good

ProSome excellent tracks

ConsA little short

I bought this album having heard just “I Try”, and to be honest, I was very disappointed on first listen to the rest on the album. However, the album does grow on you, and I would certainly recommend it to people who also liked the single “Still” - since this is more in line with what is on the...

“LIFE FOR MACY MUST BE GOOD”

published 26/04/2003

Pro10 Out Of 10 Great Tracks

ConsIt Can Be Addictive

I have to say, the first time I heard Macy's "I try" on the radio I hated it. But it was played and played and played and sometimes I'd find myself singing it while I was doing the washing etc. It has an infectious sound - I couldn't get it out of my head. Within a couple of weeks I went from...

“Brilliant”

published 19/07/2000

ProSoulful, funky, fantastic voice

I love this album, I bought it not knowing an awful lot about Ms Gray apart from hearing 'I Try' on the radio but I when I heard the first few seconds of 'Why didn't you call me' I knew this was something special. So what if she sounds a bit like Marge Simpson (a compliment if you ask me!) - it's...

“Macy Gr-eat!”

published 07/06/2000

ProA Classic one for everyones collection

Consonly 10 tracks.

The woman with the gravely-sweet voice, who hit number one with the brilliant I Try has won my approval with her debut album, On How Life Is. From the utterly excellent I try right through to soon to be released, I commited murder, this album will appeal to all. Macy, sings from the heart you...
