Depth, Substance and Meaning
One of the strongest songs, both lyrically and vocally is "Broken Heart," about - you got it - being broken hearted and the emotional and physical pain it causes: "There's been an accident, please call 911/Please call an ambulance, it's been a hit and run/I can't think right, I can't see straight/ain't got no appetite, been havin' chest pains."
The album's full of intelligent, well-written songs and strongly emotive vocals. And despite being an independent artist not on a major label, the song production is definitely not bargain basement. Another plus is that Mo is still young enough that she can still relate to and bond with people and their 20s and early 30s. In fact, there's quite a hip-hop presence on the album, with such rappers as Jim Jones, Da Brat, Fabolous and Trina appearing on various tracks. Which makes sense, since Mo's the self-proclaimed "Godmother of Hip-Hop & R&B." Fortunately, hip-hop isn't too prevalent here.
But Mo, who doesn't turn 30 until 2008, still has the vocal and stylistic maturity to also appeal people in their late 30s and 40s, making this the rare R&B album that has a lot for fans of traditional R&B as well as the more modern type.
