I was surprised quite a bit while listening to"VI II V" (6-2-5) for the first time, because I've expected something totally different. I was excited by Jelly Cleaver's folk rock suite of suites "Cure for an Existential Crisis", and was quite sure that something in this vein would follow. But nope... what we've got here is R&B, I'd say! Of course, we can't expect plain middle-of-the-road R&B from this exceptional singer-songwriter, so it's once again something special and great - just located in an unexpectedly different genre. The lyrics are first-class again, hence there's really no reason not to buy this track immediately. Let's see with what kind of music Jelly Cleaver will surprise us next.
