Two months into the 2019 and we already have a contender for album of the year. It’s funny how the good albums are always from artists we have never heard about. I, for example, have never heard of Roses Gabor before. My first time seeing such a name was on the Latest Releases section on my Apple Music application.
What actually got me to download her album was the fact it is an RnB album. I got curious. Something I learned last year is that indie RnB is too good to be true. My instincts didn’t fail me with this record. This is the kind of RnB I want to be listening to every other day but we got people embracing side partners. Wow.
This is an 11-track album from Roses Gabor, a London-based RnB singer. Wait, what is it with UK-based artists making great RnB albums? And can we finally admit that American artists are losing their marble?
Goodness me, the production is amazing. Words fail me whenever I try to describe how good an album is. I can point out everything wrong with a bad album but the same isn’t true when you listen to a great album. All you can try to describe is the feeling and boy, is the feeling amazing.
Everything from the beats to her wonderful singing and awesome lyrics, this is a complete album. I’ve only had it for a few days but I have been playing it every day. That’s how good it is. It is so good that an interlude (Turkish Delight) is my favorite track of the album. I don’t know if that makes any sense but I’m sure you can see where I’m going with this.
This album will give you the feels.
Relationships and its many issues act as the main theme for this album. I appreciate that someone still makes good RnB songs in today’s era where being a douchebag seems to be championed. From showing interest to someone (I could be yours), fighting (Fuck Up the Bass), expectations (Feels Roll N Burn) they all deserve a spot in the album.
Again, words fail me to describe how good this record is. Just take my word for it. After reading this, make an effort to look for this record and enjoy it. You’ll thank me later.
Another win for the indie music scene. I. LOVE. THIS. ALBUM. That’s all I can say. 9.5/10.
