I first stumbled onto Algebra sometime last year while looking for new music on MySpace. The track I fell in love with was “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”. I felt like it kinda sorta fit how I was feeling at the moment, and I do believe that the song was on my MySpace profile for awhile. Anyways, a few months back, I went out and copped Algebra’s album which was entitled Purpose. I let it sit for a few weeks before I actually took the time to listen to it. The first time I heard it, I was blown away. This album has been in my rotation ever since.
Here’s a track by track synopsis of the album:
At This Time: Opening Track on the CD. Algebra talks about how she feels about the dude in her life.
Halfway: Old school joint. Produced by Kwame (you know, dude that used to rock the polkadots back in the day). Algebra talks about wanting to progress in a relationship, but for that to happen, she needs the dude to meet her halfway.
Run & Hide: Talks about realizing that she’s in a relationship not worth being in.
U Do It For Me: Track where she talks about how a new dude is making her switch up her M.O.
Happy After: Track about wanting to live happily ever after. I wasn’t really feeling this one.
My Pride: Track that talks about Algebra letting her pride getting in the way of reconciling with her man after an argument.
Simple Complication: Track where Algebra has to deal with her man getting another chick pregnant. She tells him to handle his responsiblities.
What Happened?: My favorite track on the album. Track where she wonders what went wrong with a relationship that just ended.
No Idea: Song where Algebra talks about developing feelings for a friend that she came up with.
Tug of War: Song about the ups and downs of a relationship.
Can I Keep U?: Track where Algebra talks about wanting to be with a dude that’s not really emotionally available.
I Think I Love U: Track where Algebra talks about having feelings for a dude. The title is pretty self explanatory.
Come Back: My second favorite track on the album: Algebra talks about how she wants a dude back in her life after he left her. She talks about how she wants to try to please him.
Now and Then: Let’s give this thing called singing a try…lol This is a track about how she felt about someone in the past, and how she feels about dude now.
