Fairytales Review

by AllMusic

The three young ladies who make up the contemporary R&B vocal trio Divine all have distinctive styles, but they're able to combine their individual talents for a group sound that's greater than the sum of its parts. The production and arrangements are state-of-the-art; syncopated drum loops, funky bass lines and spare keyboard and guitar lines setting a backdrop for emotive, melisma-laden vocals. As sensual as the voices of these three artists are, its only natural that most of the songs should be concerned with desire, both romantic ("Never Thought) and carnal ("Good 'N Plenty"). To round things out, Divine also tackles "One More Try," the slow soul burner that George Michael made famous on his FAITH album.
