The Review: Jill Scott Shines as The Light Of The Sun

The sunlight is the Earth primary source of energy. The light of the sun is very bright, and looking directly into the sunlight can cause some temporary blindness and damage because of the eye’s inability to respond properly to its brightness. The ultraviolet light that radiates from the sun has antiseptic elements that can be used to sanitize tools and water. Nearly all of the existence of life on Earth is dependent on the light of the sun. Plants, animals and humans could not survive without the light of the sun. The sunlight does not only provide the primary energy source for life’s survival, but it also provides illumination and light for things to be seen in clear view. It is the necessary functionality and brightness of the sunlight that makes it the ultimate source of life here on Earth. It is for this reason that is makes such a profound statement to name a musical anthology The Light Of The Sun. To truly understand the message within the staccato hi-hats and the elongated chord progressions, you must not move so quickly into listening to the music without understanding its title. More importantly, you cannot truly judge or assess the material by what is chosen to be heard by radio station programmers and music television producers. The source of soulful energy that emits from this album may be found in the shadows of the sunrise of the records compiled… Let’s sit at the edge of this musical plateau and look closely as the sunrise of Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Jill Scott shines as The Light Of The Sun.

The Review: Ledisi Puts The Pieces of Her Puzzle Together

A puzzle is constructed of many pieces that come in different shapes and sizes, but they all conjoin to reveal a bigger picture. Each piece is significant, for without it you will not see the entire picture. A missing piece is a void in the overall overview of what the pieces are meant to show. Some pieces maybe larger than others, but one thing is certain: No matter how small or large the piece is, without it you can’t know what the whole puzzle is supposed to be.
