New World Order

New World Order

by Curtis Mayfield


5 New & Used Starting at $2.55


New World Order is a touching, moving comeback from Curtis Mayfield. As the first new music Mayfield recorded since he was paralyzed in 1990, the album engenders a lot of goodwill -- it's undeniably affecting to hear him sing again, especially with the knowledge that his performances had to be recorded line by line, due to his paralysis. The joy of hearing him sing makes the inconsistency of the album forgivable, especially since he is in good voice. Narada Michael Walden, Daryl Simmons, and Organized Noize all contributed productions that are sensitive but strong, which gives the album added weight. The songs are hit-and-miss, but the main strength of the record is that it illustrates that Mayfield can make music that is still vital.

People--if you never buy another CD for the rest of your life, DO NOT miss this one!!! Every track on New World Order is powerful and emotionally moving. This CD takes control of your entire body. While you listen to it your eyes will smile, your body will sway and your mind will soar with an uplifted feeling of pure joy. Curtis Mayfield definately knew exactly what he was doing when he put New World Order together.
