Product Description

Product Description

Japanese version featuring a bonus track

Amazon.ca

A rare Canadian among the R&B elite, Deborah Cox is also notable as one of the few certified divas to write or cowrite her own songs. With her reputation thus established, Cox boldly pushes into a new direction on The Morning After, offering comparatively few ballads as well as two songs aimed straight at the dance floor: the percussive rump-shaker "Up & Down (In & Out)" and the wildly caffeinated "Mr. Lonely." That both appear in myriad remixed versions on an accompanying CD makes Cox's intent clear. Still, fans of the singer's earlier, softer sounds aren't completely shut out. "Hurt So Much" is anguish as a state of mind, while the lush, octave-defying "Play Your Part" puts the passive-aggressive relationship into focus. Sisters get an anthem in "Starting with You," which best captures Cox's overriding messages of affirmation and individuality. Of course, with a voice this boundless and beautiful, Cox could make the white pages sound tingly. That she strives for something more makes The Morning After worth hearing. --Kim Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This album is really good, but unfortunately, it didn't get much promotion and she was ultimately dropped from J Records. "Up & Down" was not a great choice for first single, something like "Just A Dance" or "Oh My Gosh" would have been a better choice. This is a great album though, it has the soul of her ONE WISH album just with a few more contemporary R&B songs. "Absolutely Not", "Mr. Lonely" and "Play Your Part" were huge #1 club hits. "Starting With You" and "Hurt So Much" are great ballads that show Deborah's strong vocals. "Like I Did", "2 Good 2 Be True" and "Oh My Gosh" are great uptempo R&B songs. The title track is another great ballad, it was the second single but it didn't make too many wavelengths. Deborah proves that she is just as good as any other R&B singer out there, she's huge in the clubs, but her non remixes never seem to catch on too much which is a shame because she's great. Maybe for her next album she should concentrate on dance music, since she finds the most success in that area. Pick this one up!

Granted, this album is far from terrible, and Deborahs voice is truly great. But the material here really isn't memorable. She does best on the Shep Crawford ballads 'Play Your Part' and 'Starting With You', which will please any fans of previous hit 'Nobody's Supposed To Be Here'. She heads in the right direction on the title track, which has a bluesy-soul feel to it, and the bouncy Jazz on 'Givin' It Up' is a welcome addition to the album. In fact, Deborah always seems to succeed with the ballads - 'Hurts So Much' is also a typically good Jam & Lewis piano-driven slow jam. The problem is when Deborah tries uptempo tracks. The first single and album highlight, the sexy and lush 'Up & Down' is excellent, and the remix featuring Jadakiss is just as appealing. However, '2 Good 2 Be True' eventually falls victim to being too bland, 'Like I Did' sounds like a reject from Brandy's 'Full Moon' album, and tracks such as 'Just A Dance' sound like poorly produced 3LW rejects. Oh dear.
The addition of two dance tracks at the end of the album make the styles that Deborah dabbles in here even more jarring. As an album, this project really doesn't work. Although this has some pleasing tracks, it is not up to the standards you would expect from such a talented artist on her third effort.

In an online poll this album was voted 'MOST SLEPT ON ALBUM--2003'. So true! What poor promotion j Records did for The Morning After, it's a shame! The first single was the hip-hop mix of Up & Down (feat. Jadakiss). WRONG WRONG WRONG. I'm almost positive they just wanted to jump on the hip-hop bandwagon with this. It should NEVER have been a single. The second single was 'The Morning After' which was played every now and then on contemporary stations, nothing mainstream. I believe Starting With You, Hurt So Much, and Givin' It Up should of been the singles. My favorite is the underground club #1 hit Mr. Lonely! It's a classic masterpiece reworked by Hex Hector. This album is good, but it had the potential to be much better.
Contrary to what another poster said, Deborah was not DROPPED from j Records. She left the label after the drama with the poor promotion for TMA. She is currently filling Heather Headley's shoes in the Broadway musical 'AIDA'. She also has remixed a single from the musical 'EASY AS LIFE' and is sure to be her next #1 dance hit! On May 18, 2004 BMG is also releasing Ultimate: Deborah Cox (probably as a contractual obligation)
Deborah has stated that this spring/summer she will be returning to the studio to record her fourth studio album, this one is sure to bring her back into the limelight that has eluded her!

Deborah Cox, is beautiful, talented, and passionate enough to deliver heart wrenching music effectively. On this album, "Hurts So Much", "Starting With You", "Play Your Part", and "Up & Down" are four of the best recordings I have enjoyed in a long time. In the past 2 months, my iPod has already logged 400+ plays of these tracks--the most of any other song I own.
She worked with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis again on this album, and it shows. They have a knack for getting an artist to deliver their best in the studio. Truly a wonderful collection of soulful music. If this isn't in your collection, and you're an R&B fan, BUY IT!
Oh, as far as the "Sad Love Song" comment:
Hurts So Much
Deborah longs to stay in a bad relationship becasue she'd "rather be in love, than be alone"...
Starting With You
Deborah helps a friend understand that a bad relationship isn't worth the pain...
Up & Down
Deborah keeps it real on this one. She didn't come to fight, she came to "make love, not war"...
Play Your Part
Discusses a man who is no longer "Playing his Part" in a relationship...
Drama for days! I love it!

From the full, throaty high notes that have the substance we crave and which, recently, the old-school divas are losing to the breathy, lush low notes that give us that bob-your-head, groove-along sort of feeling, Deborah delivers. Although she's been leaving us little tidbits on soundtracks, most notably "Absolutely Not" and a thrilling gospel anthem, "Thy Will Be Done," it's nice to hear her powerful voice on a full set of songs. For someone with such passion coupled with an amazing vocal talent, I don't understand why she's not getting the mainstream credit she deserves.
MUST LISTENS on this album:
The title track uses some seriously savvy vocal movement to preach about awkwardness and confusion "The Morning After." Deborah's impressive vocal pyrotechnics don't lose the message, however, an indication of her feel for the music.
The two jams, "Up and Down" and "Mr. Lonely" only add two new jewels to Deborah's Crown as Dancing Queen.
Not surprisingly, I found "Play Your Part" reminiscent of her duet with Whitney Houston. Although Deborah can handle the song all alone and beautifully to boot, I felt like it had been done.
Gotta' check out "Hurt So Much." For the slow, heart-wrenching joint for which we all respect and love Deborah, listen to number 5.
Tune into "Givin' It Up" for that groove when you're riding in the car or dancing around the house.
I'm simply waiting for tour dates. After seeing her at the White Party, I can only determine that she's better live, and I just can't wait to hear her belt out "Hurt So Much" on stage.
