Album Review: Angie Stone - "Dream" (8/10)

Soul survivor and three-time Grammy 
nominated R&B vet Angie Stone makes her 
latest Dream about the three P’s: pain, then
 the process to get to the promise. Working
 with frequent collaborator Walter Millsap III
 and others, she lays a powerful, emotional 
and spiritual foundation even when she’s 
floating dreamily in atmospheric old-school 
soul textures. Deftly balancing the passion 
with the pain, she artfully—and with sensuality to spare—traverses the classic sounds she emerged with in the late ‘70s and created for D’Angelo in the ‘90s with more contemporary driving beats. Stone gives R&B fans of all generations something to dream on.

Score: 8 out of 10
