"For Colored Girls" Soundtrack Now Available For Pre-Order on Atlantic Records
I was thrilled to review the Soundtrack to Tyler Perry's upcoming movie, "For Colored Girls" (courtesy of Atlantic Records). In a nutshell, here is my review:
The songs from the soundtrack of "For Colored Girls," were expectedly “soulful” with a bit of eclectic-ness. Starting with the beautiful symphonic string tonality and spoken word which was indeed a mood setter and the revisit at soundtrack’s end, places an emphatic exclamation mark to a strong statement.
The playlist line-up includes ballad divas and is interspersed with “new women on the block” that provide a little edginess. The soundtrack whets the pallet in anticipation of an emotionally strife and tumultuous film. After listing to the album, I find it necessary to view the movie that follows the biorhythms and attempts to give visual clarity to this soundtrack that moves my soul.
Pre-Order now on Amazon and Atlantic Records.
Soundtrack becomes available on November 2.
