Well for me this is not anything original. I'm someone who like hearing original stuff. Vintage FUNK and SOUL or great new hip hop mixes make me groove. For example I recently bought this album called CYMANDE "THE SOUL OF RASTA" right here on AMAZON. When I got this album and threw it in the CD player I almost flipped. This is probably one of the top ten FUNK groups of all time, yet I never knew about them. Basically, If you are paying attention right now and buy this album you'll thank me for turning you on to great vintage FUNK.
Here is a little about the band from the CD liner notes.
These original funky brothers from all hailing from the West Indies created the most amazing and invigorating fusion of funk Jazz, and reggae ever heard.
Most famously sampled by the Fugees, De La Soul ,EPMD and many others. Cymande is one of the most sampled bands in Hip Hop ever.
However, no longer is this band hip hop's little secret. This album allows new listeners to hear the great original tracks in a re mastered format. Featuring "Brother's on the Slide" and "Listen". This is an anthology of their most memorable material from the original 3 LPs recorded the between 1972-1974 in London, UK. Its unfortunate that their amazing musicianship was too unique for the period.
Yet today people are rediscovering and grooving to these hidden jewels. Dive in and feel the Funk!
come over - This showcases jennifers lack in talent and songwriting skills. Her vocals are lacking quality, and style.
carino - In this song she only sings the verses (which she does in 90 percent of all the songs on the album, such as play, and aint it funny)
Jennifer lacks in telling us that it is christina milan singing in the chorus of play. I think that this album stinks. Dont buy this album. Jennifer hardly even sings in any of the songs. I think that jennifer is annoying.
I'm Real - The videoclip is very good, too bad the dancebreak isn't included in the mp3. (4/5)
Play - First I didn't like this song, but now I do. However, it is't J.Lo's best song! (3,5/5)
Walking On Sunshine - Good summer song! Nothing to say about it (3,5/4)
Ain't It Funny - The BEST track of the whole album. The lyric, music, voice..everything is good! (5/5)
Cariño - Catchy song, love the beat! (4/5)
Come Over - I don't prefer this song. It's boring..(3/5)
We Gotta Talk - I love this song! But the album has better ones. (3,5/5)
That's Not Me - Her voice is GREAT here. I also like the lyric (4,5/5)
Dance With Me - I don't prefer this song, there are better dance songs! (3/5)
I'm Gonna Be Alright - Good song, but the trackmasters remixes with 50 and Nas are better (4,5/5)
Secretly - The worst track on the album! (1,5/5)
That's The Way - Good song :)..one of my favourites! (4/5)
Dame - Love her latin songs! (4,5/5)
Si Ya Se Acabo - See above (4,5/5)
I'm Real (Murder Remix) - Next to AIF this song is also the BEST ! (5/5)
However not all the songs are 5 stars I give the whole album 5 stars :)! It's her best ever!

My only complaintment is--
--why didn't you include the trackmasters mix of "i'm gonna be alright",it is BY FAR the better...
