Macy Gray | Ruby
Mack Avenue/Artistry Music
According to Quentin Harrison: “Ruby, the tenth collection from this crisp canon, is as robust as any of its preceding sister LPs. This feat can be attributed to Gray’s continued application of her wholly distinctive abilities as a writer, vocalist and collaborator which has made her sui generis in modern R&B.
Upon one’s completion of Ruby, it’s not surprising if the listener is left picking their jaw up off the floor in awe of Gray’s undiminished musical might. And so, Ruby is another Macy Gray knockout that is all at once friendly and familiar for the faithful, but still strangely fresh enough to draft the type of buzz that adorned her very first recording all those years ago. Further, this long player confirms that Gray’s staying power is no longer in question.”
