The exceptionally talented Pop artist Toni Braxton has released her CD entitled Libra. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Toni Braxton fans, and Pop fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Libra Toni Braxton’s artistic excellence is on full display as Braxton has once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be her best work to date.
Libra literally grabs your attention right from the start with Please and won’t let go until the very last note of the very last song Shadowless, which is another great track by the way.
Libra is a nicely varied, mix of 10 tracks that are very well written songs by this clearly outstanding artist. Most of the songs display a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are her own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions like love, heartbreak, pain, failed relationships and unattainable romance. They’re all here.
I give Libra my highest recommendation. It just plain belongs in any serious music collectors collection regardless of genre preference.
While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 3 – What’s Good, track 6 – I Wanna Be, and track 10 – Shadowless.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Please. Great track!
