Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 8/30/01, p.125
3 stars out of 5 - "...This sounds more like peak '70s Pretenders than anyone in black music history....HOW DO I does that rare thing: It provides an original direction..."
Q - May 2002, p.119
3 out of 5 stars - "...Res offers a hotchpotch of musical styles....one minute swooping soulfully, the next a husky mutter..."
NME (Magazine) - 4/6/02, p.34
7 out of 10 - "...[Res] can probably only be understood...in relevance to a life lived as a classically trained prodigy who gets as much from '70s soul as Pearl Jam..."

HOW I DO is the debut from eclectic talent Res. The album demonstrates that the singer's influences range from classic soul to new wave to indie rock.
The British edition contains two bonus cuts.
Res is ostensibly a contemporary R&B singer, but in actuality that's about as informative (and accurate) as calling Radiohead a modern rock band. She shares some of the roots-conscious sensibility of history-respecting artists like Maxwell and Musiq Soulchild, but she ranges far beyond merely updating '70s soul grooves with hip-hop production tricks. Her lyrics are thoughtful and carefully constructed (more than one can say for many of her less creative contemporaries), and her musical palette is wide-ranging. HOW I DO's eclectic melding of styles owes as much to pop and rock as it does to R&B, ultimately creating a fresh new musical paradigm. The resultant crossover appeal should (if there's any justice) make Res appealing to the pop/rock crowd as well as to those who paper their walls with life-size photos of Macy Gray and Sunshine Anderson.
