Editorial Review:
Masquerade represents the next step in the musical development of an artist who's known unalloyed suc sess since first stepping on the scene nearly ten years ago, and shows no sign of slowing down. [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]
Wyclef Jean's third solo offering finds him still trying his darndest to prove to hip-hoppers and pop audiences alike just how eclectic he can be. And no one knows exactly why. After all, eclecticism does not necessarily translate to quality; Jean's disturbingly mediocre collaboration with Tom Jones on an updated version of "What's New, Pussycat?" is a prime example of how an intriguing idea can go awry. Likewise, his reinterpretations of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" and the Four Seasons hit "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" demonstrate just how spiritless this truly gifted emcee/producer can sound. Sure, Masquerade boasts Wyclef's broad coverage of black music, flipping styles from reggae to R&B in a heartbeat. The R&B flavored "Two Wrongs," featuring Claudette Ortiz of City High, and the touching ode to his recently deceased father, "Daddy," sound grand. But in the end, Jean's attempt to masquerade as a hardcore rap artist on the "PJs"--a tired ode to low-income housing dwellers--reveals that he's been on cruise control since The Score. And it's a real shame. --Dalton Higgins
