On the album's first single, "Something I Want to Give to You," she minces no words and makes things crystal clear as she sings to a trifling man: "get your coat, get your hat, get your knapsack, get your lazy ass up off'a my couch, 'cause I want you out ... we had a long run, but it's over."
She goes on to insult him further, even talking trash about his lovemaking skills, or lack thereof. She continues her tirade on the album's second song, "Trust," where she sings to an unidentified snake in the grass: "Ain't no runnin' from me, f*ck what you heard you better be scurred, I'ma get what I deserve, and that's my word - and that's revenge, Yeah life's a b*tch, but that's what happens when you're a snitch."
Not every song is as in-your-face and angry as the above examples, but those two songs are perfect examples of the kind of sass and vigor you can expect on a Sunshine Anderson album.
Real Emotion, Genuine Situations
Not everything on the album's about tough times, though: there's a few songs on which Sunshine talks about the good things in life, like on "Wear the Crown," where she talks about a man who makes her feel like a queen. And on the love songs "Unbelievable" and "Force of Nature," she sings about her devotion to the man she loves and how he seems greater than human to her.
If there's a drawback to the album, it's that the songs focusing on the positive lack the power of the more drama-filled material. Songs like "Unbelievable" and "Force of Nature," while solid and well-sung, are a little dull and don't come close to being as compelling as songs like "Problems." Its compelling songs of conflict, like "Something I Want to Give to You" and "Trust" that make the album memorable and worth listening to.
