What does it sound like?:
This is a beautiful, seductive record, possessing smoooth, curvy grooves and full bodied vocals. There is an air of feminine perfection pervading every track. It is delectable to behold.
KING are the hot, new saviours of R&B, causing quite a stir in America. They are three young, very attractive women each with a similar honey voice that they blend with considerable skill. They are being likened to Destiny’s Child and TLC. KING are bright and independent. They write and produce themselves. However, there is a glaring absence of grit, wit or danceability. It isn’t an album to get down and dirty with. You can’t kick off your shoes and shake your booty. We Are King wants to be admired from afar. It is the kind of album that provides ambience in a high class cocktail bar, soundtracking the beautiful people as they talk vacuously about themselves. It is very stylishly dressed ear candy but after the third smoooth groove, you might be inclined to move on to something more stimulating.
As a man desperate for some fresh R&B in the 21st Century, We Are King is a gorgeous date for a Night In but it’s not a prospect for a long term relationship. I just can’t see myself getting emotionally involved.
What does it all *mean*?
No matter how much you adore women and R&B, you can’t fall in love every time.
