Three years after their debut CD "The Weekend Is For You" Sat-R-Day release their second CD "That's How We're Livin'" in a new line up. Like other dutch acts such as Tasha's World and Flip Da Scrip, Sat-R-Day are huge in other countries. Where as they are not as recognized in their own country. Maybe this CD will chance that.
This CD contains 13 tracks, including the singles Don't Go and The Rules. Besides these songs there are more cuts that have hit potential. Hot Shot and Freakness are just some of the top tracks. Sat-R-Day have a lot of up tempo songs on this album, most of them have a little rap. Although you sometimes wonder what the added value of the rap is. Their vocals, harmonies and tight production on the album do not necessarily require raps.
When you like acts such as Next and Dru Hill you sure will like this album a lot. Sat-R-Day do have their own style. The cover of the Bill Withers classic "Lovely Day" gets the Sat-R-Day treatment, so do not expect a copy of Bill's version.
There are a lot of guests on the album, among others Coolio and J. Colin. On the title track the boys from Sat-R-Day get help from Naomi. If this CD reflects how they are livin', life must be good for Sat-R-Day and getting better.(RJ)
