El DeBarge, "In The Storm" / 1991 Review by: LL
This album definitely takes the listener through a internal ride. With interludes and harmonies, it is very poetic in form. Rhythms and the use of the live band is what was conveyed through this album. El's musicianship is showcase by using variety of styles and sounds. His musical influences, Marvin Gaye, Sly and The Family Stone as well as Earth Wind and Fire are prevalent. He has no shame in his game. However he does stick to his signature vocal style and also adds Chante Moore to his musical seranade. The added touch to put his signature to this ablum of course is his sincerity. Guest to appear on this album include, Kool Moe Dee, Four Play, Maurice White (who also is noted as one of the producers), Chante Moore and a song co-written by none other than Prince. It is a special treat for those into the old school era, and a twist from the norm for long time El fans.
