UK garage soul starlet Ms. Dynamite (of London's loved/loathed So Solid Crew) stole hearts with her 02 breakout, A Little Deeper. The LP, which took the Mercury Prize from The Streets and Bowie, was true to its title: an R&B/reggae two-step disc whose topical subject matter and refreshing Brit production sensibility cast the explosive singer as a bold Lauryn Hill-like figure still fresh enough to get the clubs legitimately crunk. On her sophomore joint, Dynamite is still talkin' real and singin' well - with content that far exceeds that of her Britpop/R&B/two-step male counterpart Craig David - and you can feel her coming directly from the heart on every topic. No bullshit, especially when she berates her deadbeat daddy. Sadly, in a clear effort to build a U.S. fan base, the production is often generic and yawnsome, undermining the power of her words and diminishing the impact of Ms. Dynamite's potential for a big bang.
