Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ANDRE CYMONE

The Stone

2014-02-09

 Having worked in past with such notables as Prince and Jody Watley,  Andre Cymone considers himself "one of the architects of the revolutionary MInneapolis sound that permanently changed the face of popular music in the 80's". The Stone is the fourth release from the singer/songwriter/producer and just because he made his name in the eighties doesn't mean that this sounds anything like that musical period.  The Stone consists of mild rock guitar and slow to mid-tempo drums with soulful vocals, often reminding me of a toned-down Lenny Kravitz.  There is nothing here to make note of as The Stone offers bland songs that are easily dismissed.     Rebecca Ruth
