RECORD REVIEW

ALBUM – SOLAR PLEXUS

ARTIST(S) – THE MAVINS ALL STARS: WANDE COAL, DR. SID, TIWA SAVAGE. D’PRINCE

RECORD LABEL – MAVIN RECORDS

 

It’s no longer news that Mo’Hits has been swept under the carpet and replaced by Mavin Records. While in the process, most of us wished the former will be upheld eventually, but that’s probably never gon’ happen… and that’s not the subject matter right now…Moving on…

A ‘Mavin’is somebody who is dazzlingly skilled in any field, and in this context, Don Jazzy – the label owner, producer, artist and song writer is the prime suspect. He solely orchestratedthe outcome of ‘SOLAR PLEXUS’through his cohortsWande Coal, Dr. Sid, D’Prince and the lovely Tiwa Savage.

The album title, ‘SOLAR PLEXUS’ means any interwoven entity made up different elements in a structure. The origin of the word ‘Plexus’ is ‘Plectere‘ – a Latin phrase which means braidor weave. In literal term – Don Jazzy, Wande, Dr. Sid, D’Prince and Tiwa joined forces with an obvious motive to make a remarkable musical statement. Was this mission accomplished? I don’t think so!

Wande Coal vocally led the pack on ‘Solar Plexus’ but I don’t think he made any extraordinary impact on it; his rating comparatively remains the same.

Tiwa Savage is a great vocalist – I don’t know if she was not allowed to SING! If “OmaGa” is meant to be an experiment, I must advise that it’s a bad ideaalready. Her verse on “I Am A Mavin” is a better shot.

I think D’Prince on the other hand had the best outing on this album.“Take Banana” and “Why You Over There” might be typical but“Amarachi” is a unique rendition that stands out amongst all the songs he has made so far and I think it’s a commendable effort.

You will agree that Dr. Sid puts in work to make his music ‘sellable’e.g“Pop Champaign” and“Over The Moon” (Turning Point Album).I believe “YOLO” is another attempt which is not bad at all but I guess we’ll just wait and see how that pans out.

In summary, I think the mix and mastering/finishing of this album is quite poor.Dr. Sid sounded like D’Prince on songs like “CPR” and “Chocolate”… listen to his verse on “I Am A Mavin”.Don Jazzy is a multi-award winning producer and his ingenuity is still unquestionable but I would want to assume that the haste to put out an album to officially unveil Mavin Records sort of affected the total composition of the project. And it kinda falls below average.

 

SCORE: 2/5
