商品説明

Although Just Add Water is only the third album from rapper Suga Free in nine years, it is clear that he has lost none of his game in the time that's passed. The premise behind the record, as explained in the Intro, is that it's a kind of guide to being a pimp. And while Suga Free is more than ready to give his share of advice about dealing with nosy and ungrateful women and his love for his job (U Know My Name, for example, where he says over a smooth jazz beat, Cuz all I really like is pimpin', and I only love what she do for me/I ain't getting married), he is also willing to get a bit more personal and express some genuine emotion. I'm Gone and Peace of Mind are both about relationships that have gone wrong and that have hurt him, and in the guitar-driven The Ranger he's the most introspective and honest he's ever been, showing the maturity he's gained since his 1997 debut, Street Gospel. He explains his reasons for pimping in a Prince-esque falsetto over reverby, melancholy electric guitar chords, then moves into a modern rock-inspired chorus of I don't want to be like the Lone Ranger/Traveling through the world just like a stranger. These moments of reflection are a nice complement to the rest of the album, with songs about sex and women and money, and bring a little humanity to the persona Suga Free has worked so hard to create. In terms of production, Just Add Water is as good as any G-funk record. Its beats are all smooth and clean, but there's enough diversity in instrumentation and style (the aforementioned rock found in The Ranger and also in Suga Cain, the pure James Brown funk of What U Want, complete with grunts, and the Spanish guitar in If You Feel Me) to keep things from growing either boring or predictable. However, lyrically Suga Free's misogyny gets a little tiresome, and his rhymes have always been kind of hit or miss, which unfortunately doesn't change on this record. Although he has too many lines that involve him trying to extend single-syllable words into four or five, he makes up for this by focusing more on his singing, which has a cadence reminiscent of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. It sounds good, and ties the musical elements of the record together nicely. Just Add Water may not be the complete handbook to being a pimp, but it certainly is a kind of missive on the life of Suga Free, and is definitely worth checking out. [A clean version of the record also saw release in 2006.] ~ Marisa Brown, All Music Guide

いやもう、言うこと無いです。西海岸ぽさが凄いです(特に後半)。八曲目と十五曲目が特に気に入ってますが、全ての曲が傑作すね。もう脱帽です。

2曲目からfunkしてます、live仕立ての最高なナンバー、そこから先も半端ないクオリティーな曲続きます!!OG PSYCHO KIDさんの言うとおり、趣味でやってるっていうのが信じられません、このレベルのアルバムはそうそうありません。個人的にはroscoeのニューアルバムさえこのアルバムにはかなわないと思います。日本のラッパーもこういうfunkyなラップをして欲しいですね!!

最高にファンキーな新作です。6曲目と8曲目を鬼プッシュしますが、全体的に完成度が高いです。本業は別で音楽は趣味と言っている人にここまでのアルバムを作られたら、音楽一本でやってる人はたまらないでしょうね(笑)

Suga Free

Suga Free's career got off to a slow start despite a promising debut album, 1997's Street Gospel. In 2000, he returned to the spotlight with high-profile guest appearances on Xzibit's Restless and Snoop Dogg's Tha Last Meal. In 2004, the rapper issued his second album, The New Testament, followed two years later by Just Add Water and two volumes of Features. ~ Jason Birchmeier & Marisa Brown, Rovi
