En Vogue

How would everyone rank their albums?

This is my ranking for the time being:

1. Masterpiece Theatre
2. Funky Divas
3. Electric Cafe
4. EV3
5. Born To Sing
6. Soul Flower
--------------------
7. The Gift Of Christmas

Very close between #3 and #4 for me. Right now my excitement for a new En Vogue album puts Electric Cafe ahead, but I suspect on some days I'll prefer EV3 if I want something more laid-back.

1. EV3
2. Masterpiece Theatre
3. Funky Divas
4. Electric Café
5. Born to Sing
6. Soul Flower
7. The Gift of Christmas

I love that Dawn still features on EV3. She sings a verse on the Whatever remixes on the single too!
 
Did anyone go to the London show at The IndigO2 tonight? Third year I've seen them in a row and they blew the roof off. From "Electric Cafe", they did "I'm Good", "Reach 4 Me", "Blue Skies" and "Rocket". What an awesome show!!

I was at their Manchester show last weekend and yeah they were amazing! I'm glad that they replaced their usual Old Skool medley with the new songs. If only they had performed a couple of tracks from Masterpiece Theatre (namely No No No & Riddle) the setlist would have been perfect. I loved hearing Reach 4 Me and Blue Skies live. I hope one of those is the next single!

I felt the response to the new songs was muted (to say the least) but they were clearly enjoying themselves and they really sang the roof off.
(oh and o2 indigo is a great little venue)

It was the same in Manchester. I think quite often the majority of people who go to these shows are casual R&B fans who are really only there for the classic hits, so new music isn't always given a warm reception. It really annoyed me when people started talking or making their way to the bar when the ladies were performing the new songs. So rude!!!

Blue Skies still feels too long for me and it's my least favourite.
 
An alternative view would be: the lack of frills means you can concentrate on their magnificent voices.
I'm aware of that, Ive been to plenty of man or woman with their guitar gigs and enjoyed them. This was just somewhat depressing to see in a venue less than a 3rd full. Great voices but it felt a bit lacklustre.

The last one was pretty well-attended, so I don’t think it’s the three-girl thing (especially since they’ve been a trio for over twenty years, barring that brief reunion in 2010).

Two tours in two years, on the other hand... that definitely takes a toll on sales unless you’re touring for two different big albums in that time.
