4.0 out of 5 stars Forget the scandal...what matters is the MUSIC May 11 2004
By eric_f
Format:Audio CD
It has almost become a stigma to own this album and actually admit that one likes it. But I for one have no shame in saying that I think it's great. Yeah, yeah, we all know about the infamous scandal with Milli Vanilli. But should that be a valid reason for judging this album? Hardly. Listen to the new Britney Spears album: on some songs her voice is so digitally altered that she almost sounds like a robot. One could argue that she isn't really singing on her album either. And there are plenty more artists out there who fall into the same category.
For the most part, Girl You Know It's True is a fantastic listen. The songs are well composed and have a great vibe. From a lyrical standpoint it's nothing profound, but then again this music is to make one feel good, not to convey life-changing deep messages. Take it for what it is. The most memorable songs are of course the hits like the title cut and "Blame It On The Rain." But there are many other gems as well, such as the nice ballad "I'm Gonna Miss You" and the funky "All Or Nothing." I didn't give it 5 stars because a few songs just aren't as memorable as the other stronger ones. But taken as a whole, Girl You Know It's True is a great listen. An album that will go down in history for all the wrong reasons. But that doesn't take away from what matters most: the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Album With an Unfortunate History. June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Milli Vanilli was one of the greatest success stories which quickly turned into one of the biggest scandals of the late '80s/early 90s. The duo of Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan were riding high as instant superstars with their album "Girl You Know It's True" which spawned five top 10 hits (three of which went to No.1) and went nearly 10 times platinum. Then, in 1990, their success turned to disgrace when record producer Frank Farian revealed that Pilatus and Morvan weren't the actual singers on the album. This led to one of the greatest backlashes in music history (one that possibly rivals John Lennon's statements about the Beatles and Jesus Christ).
The history and scandal behind the "Girl You Know It's True" album has gotten in the way of what the record truly is - an album of great energetic dance/pop. From the opening orchestral hits of the title track all the way to the tender ballad "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You", the album is a solid effort with its unique production and music arrangements. The vocal work performed by Brad Howell and John Davis (who did most of the vocals on the album) along with Charles Shaw (who sang "Girl's.." title track) and Gina Mohammed (who sings all the female lead vocals) is extraordinary. Howell's delivery on "Blame it On The Rain" shows just why this song became the big hit that it did while Davis's cross between rap and singing on nearly all the tracks was of greater quality than most popular rap acts at the time.
With all the great music on this album, it's easy to see why people soaked it all up when it was released. It's also easy to see why people became so angry when the story behind the album was revealed. The unfortunate circumstances behind Milli Vanilli led to some tragic results.

3.0 out of 5 stars No worse than Britney Dec 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
When Girl you know it's true was released, I was old enough to enjoy Milli Vanilli's Europop rap-dance fusion, but not enough to understand the scandal that put an end to their hugely sucessful career. In my opinion, this thing never even should've seen the light of day : Frank Farian should've used the real signers' images instead of hiring models to impersonate them (to this day, I still can't understand what could possibly have possessed Farian to do such a thing, because it was bound to blow up in his face sooner or later), and Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan never should've agreed to become puppets in Farian's hands. Now, look where their 15 minutes of fame took them : Rob never recovered from the scandal and died of an overdose, while Fab tries to pursue a solo career while being well aware that no one will ever take him seriously again. The only reason why people hate Milli Vanilli so much is because they can't accept the fact that they were so easily fooled. And it's a shame that their songs were erased from all radio playlists, because Milli Vanilli's music wasn't bad at all : it was merely lightweight, well-produced dance-pop. The same thing can be said of a certain Britney Spears, who's also been the target of criticism concerning her lyp-synching during her concerts. Just because she really sings on her albums(if you dare calling it singing...), does it make her more acceptable than Milli Vanilli? Because she too is a marketing toy whose career is based on her looks, not her talent. But this didn't stop her from selling millions of copies worldwide. Let's face it : pop music is based on looks, and it's unfair that Milli Vanilli had to be the ones to epitomize that fact.

3.0 out of 5 stars good music regardless of the singer/artist Jan. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lets be serious just a minute! In this day and time there are very few artists who can play an instrument, write their own lyrics, produce, so forth and so on. What was the big deal here?
Everything is done with sampling and computers. Heck, you dont even need talent(can you say "Busta Rhymes"). All I know is that the album standing alone is decent. Infused with "Girl you know its true" the album is above average. Good music plain and simple. And they didnt even need to use epic profanity to get attention(can you say "anything considered modern rap or R/B).
