Joy: This is a pretty awesome tune to start out with. Really cool beat on this one. I really dig the keys sound and the way drums are on the back beat - very cool. Ledisi's melody is really simple, which is a good contrast against the more complicated groove. Love the hook - "let me be the one to bring you joy" - oh how many times I've felt that way. She's got a great sultry tone to her that I really dig. The bridge is cool, nothing super special, but I still like it. Fading out was definitely the way to end this tune, and I dig it. Solid.
You & Me: This is a pretty standard R&B groove. Not to say it's not good, I definitely can get down with it, it's just not anything I'm wowed by or feel like I haven't heard before. I do really dig the keys part though - very sexy. The harmonies on this are pretty sweet, very gospel like, which is probably why the chorus has a happier feel to it. Kind of lackluster against the opener, but still a good song.
Best Friend: Again, the groove (and lyrical content in this case) is a pretty standard R&B sound, more so than the previous. Luckily, Ledisi's voice is good enough to slightly forget about that. I do dig the 5 seconds of clave in the 2nd verse though, threw me off the first time I heard it, but then I wanted more. Didn't get it though... I'm also not really a fan of the bridge - I don't feel like it has the right connection to the verse, and the overlaying guitar solo is a little too loud in my opinion. Good, not great.
