Alvin S. Kpou aka Douk De Lib: Next Level-Epic, Over the top, and all for the better

NEXT LEVEL               Second Album 'Next Level' drops May,2015   Liberia's choir boy turned Afro Dance artist, Alvin S. Kpou aka Douk De Lib, is expected to drop his second album 'Next Level' in May of 2015.  Sitting on my sofa, listening to 'Next Level', I felt a rush, an unstoppable momentum.  It has an unrelenting style, composition is powerful and sophisticated.   Also remarkable is that some elements of his music are not far removed from the original Liberian highlife rhythm played by kru sailors in the 1950's.   There are four guarantee hits on this album, Juju, Prove It, Cry for Africa and Saybah .  It was a struggle deciding between Juju and Prove It, as the number one hit.  Prove It is very catchy with a great beat but Juju is very well arranged, vocals more powerful and catchy.  All the beats on this album are on point.  Next Level deserves to be.                                                                              


"THE REAL ME" SHADOW MAN/ "THE REAL ME"             This is a great song and performance. The melody is strong and tuneful. The singer has an attractive vocal tone, and puts real feeling into the lyrics. The lyrics are interesting and meaningful with some punchy phrases. Instrumentally, the song has a rich, full accompaniment that complements the vocal track perfectly. The performance quality is high throughout, both vocally and instrumentally. Overall, the song is distinctive and original, and I think it has strong commercial potential, even though it would have done the artist more justice if he had  represented the culture of his origin, since the song is about the real "Shadow", and the artist represents himself as a Liberian artist. Great song, tasteful.
