predictably, i love this album for the sole reason that it was an r+b record with a cure sample on it.

that incredible jam gets my vote, but "they-say vision" will probably walk this one for those that remember it.

i think the whole record is great though. writing and production are great. the ambiguous genre hopping (really dig the trippy reggae stuff on "700 mile situation") coupled with the cure sample just made me assume she was british, or not american. but nope. born and raised. anyway, without the major label budget she kind fizzled out by the looks of it. i was genuinely excited about her at the time, with a debut album that solid.

what say you? promising, but unfulfilling? or bad sade impression?

also duh: whole reason for polling this is because it's a very good album for fall listening.

I love Golden Boys, but don't think I've ever heard anything else on it.

it's not a hidden classic or anything, but the good tracks (of which "golden boys" is one) are *quite* good, so i recommend at least previewing it.

unrelated: a rumor i remember hearing around the time was that santi white (who was definitely involved in the making of this album) wrote the lyrics to a good number of the tracks — and "golden boys" in particular was about mos def. obviously pure rumors, so who knows.
