When British soul singer Amy Winehouse passed away in July 2011 at age
27, the world lost a talented musician way too soon. While many
predicted Winehouse’s battle with demons would be her ultimate and
perhaps untimely demise, the world was saddened that such a distinct,
passionate, and soulful voice was gone so soon.

Mary J. Blige | My Life II…The Journey Continues (Act I)

by Brent Faulkner
Any artist, regardless of genre, would be hard pressed to follow-up one
of their most pivotal releases with a worthwhile sequel. On My Life
II… The Journey Continues (Act I), that is what R&B standout Mary
J. Blige attempts to do. The result is a pleasant effort, but an effort
that never eclipses the original My Life, nor does it eclipse Blige’s
modern masterpiece, The Breakthrough. Despite this and some humdrum,
less distinct moments, there is enough solid material to make My Life II
an enjoyable, though not necessarily the most important or vital effort
in Blige’s rich discography.
