CD Review: DJ $crilla & Lauren Lanzaretta 

Color of Love


Who's to blame for this scatterbrained mess? DJ $crilla? Singer Lauren Lanzaretta? Producer Brian Lucey? There's no focus to Color of Love, just a bunch of generic synth loops, routine drum machines, and other blah odds and ends. By the end of the album (which is available as a free download), it's near impossible to recall a single thing that just passed through your ears. Lanzaretta sings rather soulfully at times, but there's so little soul to the songs themselves. And $crilla has a pretty good flow to his raps, but nothing he rhymes is all that memorable. It's a shame, since the duo is gathering donations for Berea Children's Home and Family Services. Here's an idea: Donate the money, skip the download. — Ben Gifford
