Review - Product Description :
Debut album from Aliaune Akon, son of legendary African percussionist and jazz musician Mor Thiam. On this first offering, Akon delivers his own unique blend of rap, hip-hop and even a hint of ragga thrown in for good measure. Includes the single 'Locked Up'.

- Showing his roots

Like most people, I got my first Akon experience with Bananza (Belly Dancer), a fresh, original dance track with an infectious beat. The next track that grabbed my attention was the unusual sampling of Bobby Vinton's hit on "Lonely".

Originally from Senegal, Akon (formerly Aliaune Thiam) blends his heritage, his inherited musical talent and the experiences of a troubled youth, into an exciting debut album of hip hop and R&B.

His strength is in the soulful R&B songs, his unique accent giving the lyrics an extra edge, but his rapping isn't too bad either.

Despite the x-rated lyrics on Gangsta (featuring Daddy T. Picklehead and Devyne), it has a compelling driving beat, and is one of the better songs on the album. Other picks are "Locked Up", "Ghetto", "Pot of Gold", "Show Out" and "Trouble Nobody".

The version I have has 15 tracks, corresponding to the listing on the UK album. There are two extra versions of "Locked Up" and the bonus song "Gunshot", which has a catchy Caribbean style chorus.

An excellent debut album from a young man finally on the right side of the tracks.

- Gangsta R&B with a West-Indian accent

Akon's cd "Trouble" was awesome from beginnin to the end. I really cannot stand todays r&b.. but Akon bring's it fresh with a different and unique singing style complimented by that nerve-calming West Indian accent.. and at the same time, the cd comes off gangsta to you.. it almost doesn't seem possible, but for once there is actually a hard r&b cat, whose music is worthwhile. particularly, "Ghetto" stood out as a heartfelt gangsta ballad.. while tracks like "Journey" can undoubtedly get it crunked. All in all, Akon's cd "Trouble" is not a con. it is worth your money.. At least now i know what im gonna be bumpin at the start of this school year. Hell yeah!

- One of those CDs that's actually worth your money...

I'm not really into R&B but I definitely made an exception with Akon's "Trouble"

First heard Akon on BET with Styles P. "Locked up" and I was hooked after that. I just had to check this dude out. Picked up his CD shortafter and I was just amazed at how good the CD was. It's one of those CDs you buy with no regrets afterwards, which is very rare nowadays.

Touching, soothing, and moving songs with meaningful lyrics and most of all: It's real, no fake sh*t here.

Favorite tracks are: 13) Locked up Remix, 5) Ghetto (awesome track), 6) Pot of Gold, 10) Journey, and 8) Lonely

If you've downloaded/heard some of his songs and enjoyed them, try buying his CD. A quality CD like this really deserves your support.

Akon is like a breath of fresh air, it's something new to listen to instead of the crappy, meaningless hiphop music that's out nowadays. Definitely looking forward to this guy in the future.

- Passion

I first got this CD only because I briefly saw a commercial for it, and I heard the song locked up. I thought that would probably be the only song I liked but, the entire CD is strong. Stand out joints are "Journey" and "Ghetto."

This is definately worth your money, his r&b is different from today's bubble-gum hiphop, and takes you back to the days when hiphop was at it's prime. Soul with thug passion makes a great CD.
