Macy Gray: Where Billie meets Janis
Andy Gill, MOJO, September 1999
AS THE MINISTRATIONS OF interchangeable soul divas turn what used to be soul music into an increasingly formulaic music experience, its a pleasure to be able to welcome a talent as strikingly individual as Macy Gray. To use the modern American parlance, its rare these days to find an R&B record with quite as much rhythm and quite as much blues as Macys debut album, Macy Gray On How Life Is.
