Artist: Tamika Williams Album: Clark CD Review:
Did she really call a song Chocolate Caramel Brown? Well, alright then. This 4 song EP finds Ms. Clark dipping into some nice funk on the first song. This song being my favorite, also appears as the last track in a radio edit version (CD note, usually edit versions are shorter than the album versions). In her voice I heard a nice mix of a few soul influences and it really comes together best in "Chocolate Caramel Brown" and "Why Don't You Believe". "Chocolate Caramel Brown" is one of those songs where the lyrics are real simple, and who cares? It's all about the groove, right? Well, I would like to give Ms. Clark a challenge to bring some more funk and give me a deep lyric to vibe along to. There are some tight ass harmonies in CC Brown and there's a beautiful lilting guitar in "Why Don't You Believe" inviting the listener in. You have our attention Ms. Clark, where are you going to take us?
