Mary J. Blige Gets Hip-Happy

Jim Farber of the New York Daily News reviewed ’s latest effort ‘Love & Life’, which came out today. Farber says, “Unsurprisingly, the new songs that express pain produce the most pleasure. In ‘Not Today’ Blige sings to her struggling girlfriends about their cheating men. [Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs] matches it to a nice ‘phat’ club beat. Even her songs about the great man she bagged – such as ‘When We’ or ‘Don’t Go’ – refuse to idealize the situation, acknowledging that problems endure. But if the viewpoint of ‘Love & Life’ contains enough grit to avoid going gooey, its music lacks the peaks of Blige’s past.”
