I've listened to some of the songs off of Spice. I think they're pretty decent, but they I still very much prefer CrazySexyCool better. To me, it was a better body of work. Each song was so good and the whole album was very cohesive. The interludes also helped as well, though i remember listening to the sexy
interlude for the 1st time and thinking: WTF is this?
To me, that album has no fillers. My favs off that album are: Creep
, Red Light Special
, If I Was Your Girlfriend
and Sumthin' Wicked This Way Comes
. Also, as an era, I think CrazySexyCool is better than the Spice era. Sure, Spice sold more, but Crazysexycool was a flawless era, from the singles, the album, the image, the awards, the chart domination, to the videos. 1995 was THEIR year. I just wish i got to experience that era.
My review of the album track by track (excluding interludes)
1. Creep 10/10
Such a timeless jam! The trumpets and T-Boz's sultry vocals make such a sensual sound. Great opener for an album
2. Kick Your Game 6/10
Ok-ish track. My fav part was Chilli's part. I don't like the chorus though.
3. Diggin' on You 7/10
Another sensual jam. Feels like Creep part 2. T-boz killing it as usual.
4. Case of the Fake People 7/10
Catchy and I really relate to this song a lot.
5. Red Light Special 10/10
One of the hottest bedroom anthems ever! When Chilli's part came in, i just lose it. The video is hot AF as well.
6. Waterfalls 8/10
Love Lisa's rhymes and its meaningful message. Though there's something missing compared to Creep and Red Light Special
7. Let's Do It Again 8/10
Kinda Like Red Light Special Part 2. A very sensual jam!
8. If I Was Your Girlfriend 10/10
Although Prince doesn't like other artists recording his songs, he should be proud of this cover. I love that they added their own personal touch to the song. T-boz's vocals also compliments the song.
9. Take Our Time 8/10
Chilli really did her THANG here. Another amazing bedroom anthem
10. Switch 7/10
Not a bad song. Love Lisa's rhymes (as usual) Though sounds a bit basic.
11. Sumthin' Wicked This Way Comes 9/10
This song really touches me. The production and Lisa's rap really makes me wonder how society and the world is today.
Definitely one of the greatest R&B albums in the 90's, and perhaps of all time!
