CREME D'COCOA :: SMOOTH SOUL
Forget the “funk” in this album — because the best bits are the mellow ones! Crème D’Cocoa are one of those groups pushing slick bass-heavy funk when they should stick to the mellower cuts — which they do nicely on this album, in a smooth male/female harmony style that has a bit of a quiet storm feel to it. The funkier cuts are really just uptempo club numbers, not really that strong, but pleasant enough in kind of a shouting catchy chorus sort of way. Titles include “Baby, Don’t You Know”, “Leading Lady”, “Mr Me, Mrs You”, “Sweet Dream Lady”, “I Don’t Wanna Be Lonely”, and “Do What You Feel”.
