Nubia Soul

Jomanda • Atlantic • Jan 1993

Jomanda's albums of the early and mid-1990s weren't remarkable, but they contained enough worthwhile material to maintain our interest. Like Someone to Love Me, the slightly inferior Nubia Soul gives the impression that with the right AR, the right material and the right production, Jomanda could have been outstanding instead of merely good. A few the songs aren't terribly memorable, but when the ladies tear into such infectious house music as "Life" and "I Cried the Tears" and gritty new jack RB like "Don't Deny," "Don't Fight the Feeling" and "Back to You," we're reminded how much potential they still had. Unfortunately, Jomanda still wasn't hitting big. - Alex Henderson, All Music Guide
