Testimony vol. 2 : Love and Politics

India Arie di itunes saya ilang. Entah Kenapa! GROAR! #gaksantai. Cuma kesisa 3 lagu.
Akhirnya download ulang album2-nya -_________-"
Download Testimony vol. 2 : Love and politics, sama yang Voyage to India.

Suka sekali dari dulu sama India Arie.
Lagu-nya di telinga saya pas banget, ahaha.
Emang senengnya lagu2 jenis2 beginian sih, easy listening, soul rhythm and blues :)

Dari dua album itu, lebih enak yang Testimony vol.2 : Love and politics. Lagunya India Arie emang banyaknya tentang perjuangan mostly perempuan di berbagai negara, terutama Afrika. Apalagi dia juga negro. Proud to be a woman banget tema2 lagunya, walau banyak juga yang tentang love, pride, being grateful, dsb.

Salah satu yang keren, menurut saya di album ini adalah 4 lagu, judulnya: intro grains, interlude grains (1), interlude grains (2), dan outro grains. Lagu yang saling nyambung, masing2nya gak lebih dari 1 menit, dan kesebar di album-nya (gak berurutan maksudnya, si intro diawal, interlude di tengah, dan outro di akhir) diselingi lagu2 lain.

Liriknya:
Intro Grains:
I'm grateful that You created me from the same grains from the same things. I'm grateful that You never cease to amaze me the way You love me.
Interlude Grains (1):
I am grateful that You never cease to amaze me the way You love me. From the flicker of an eyelash to the furthest star. From the pyramids to the beat of my heart. From a woman in Somalia to a child in Harlem. We're created from the same things. I'm grateful that You created me from the same grains from the same things. I'm grateful that You never cease to amaze me the way You loved me
Interlude Grains (2):
Every human being . Who is. Who has been. And who ever will be. From the most famous to the most anonymous, yeah. We're created from the same thing. You know how many hairs are on every head, and the intention of every heart no matter the words we said. And every time I think I'm separate. I remember we're created by One God. I'm grateful that, You created me from the same grains. With the same thing. I'm grateful that. You never cease to amaze me, the way You love me
Outro Grains:
I'm grateful that now I can see, that I am a part of everything, and everything is a part of me. You've amazed me.
Secara keseluruhan ini album hampir semuanya enak dan liriknya bagus. Mulai dari yang chocolate high (ini mah lagu sejuta orang pisan), river rise, therapy (ft. Gramps Morgan), beautiful day, beautiful flower, pearls (ft. Dobet Gnahore), dll.

Oke, intinya: recommended.

Early in the morning. It's the dawn of a new day
New hopes, new dreams, new ways
I open up eyes and, I open up my mind
And I wonder how life will surprise me today?
- Beautiful Day - India Arie
