Whole 'Nutha Thang - Keb' Mo'

Legbamel Not-Pop

I finally gave in and picked up "Suitcase" from Keb' Mo'. I knew I was going to buy it eventually, because I love his music, but it's been pretty low on the priority list for me. I've had new music coming out of my ears, and that's all to the good as far as I'm concerned. Yesterday, I finally picked it up while killing time at a big-box department store. What can I say, except that it's classic Keb' Mo'? Life Is Beautiful and Still There for Me are beautiful, Remain Silent has some real "ouch" moments, and I'll Be Your Water moves you and still makes you tap your toes.

My favorite song on the album, though, has to be Whole 'Notha Thang, spelling issues aside. It reminds me of Taj Mahal (particularly Ain't Nobody's Business mixed with the recently-posted Big-Legged Mamas Are Back in Style Again). It's a bit naughtier than most of Mr. Moore's other music, excepting You Can Love Yourself, which is more silly that risque. I'd like to see this side of Keb' Mo', in truth, he does it so well.
