[SOUL, COUGHING] With outsized, untamed, slightly fire-damaged contralto (and aesthetic to match), Macy Gray burst upon the turn-of-the-millennium global charts with a pleasantly unhinged, bluesy belter, offering a brief glimpse into all the pedestrian design of modern R&B no longer allowed. But “I Try” quickly enough proved an early peak. After declining sales and dimming reviews culminated in 2010’s utterly meh The Sellout, she’s released only a personalized take upon Stevie Wonder’s Talking Book—given their divergent vocal strengths, as bizarre a choice as Lemmy reworking Transformer—and an equally daft Covered collection of Arcade Fire and Metallica tunes before this autumn’s touring of her 1999 debut. The 14th anniversary is traditionally marked by ivory, though gold is now more commonly expected.
