Ten years after releasing her first album, MC Lyte
delivered Seven & Seven
, her sixth album. During that time, Lyte
remained remarkably unchanged, and Seven & Seven
proves to be startlingly similar to the slick, R&B-influenced hip-hop she's been turning out since Lyte as a Rock
. At times, that's not too bad, although the album has an exhausting 77-minute running length. There are good songs on the album, to be sure.
