ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A BEAUTIFUL CURSE was officially born in 2004 by freelance musician/producer Kenny James (who has worked with George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars, 24-7 Spyz, Celldweller, The Samples, and so many more) in his home studio Temple of Boom. The CURSE, originally named My Drama, was a part time project combining emotional/dramatic rock, electronica, and the downtempo/trip hop movement.

Initially designed primarily for film soundtracks and music licensing (t.v. commercials, video games, etc.), A BEAUTIFUL CURSE is now a full-on music project with all eyes focused on the release of the stereo/surround sound dual disc "As It Should Be". Yet, no matter its design, it's truly dream-music from the heart and soul. A collision of groove and mood for the senses.


'The best film music is imaginative and escapist. Of all these things, the only element missing from Kenny James’ A Beautiful Curse project is the film itself…James appropriately describes the album as “a collision of groove and mood for the senses.” With its haunting melodies and deep rhythms combined with an ambient rock air, we think you’ll agree.'
-Zane - Leisure Lab

'This album is an amalgam of contemporary psychedelic styles which all come from a place of positive inspiration. If you appreciate slightly hallucinatory electronic sounds, or like any type of dream-like music, then you might agree this album is exactly "As It Should Be."'
-Sean B. and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team

‘…"As It Should Be" is very well produced and varies in its influences from song to song, a variance in style which, coupled with the variance between male and female vocals, may draw in a listener... (and) it has some gems that deserve to be heard.’

-- James Church [8/10] Connexion Bizarre

"A Beautiful Curse makes music that is enchanting, mesmerizing, and haunting that captures the artist's unique sound in (each) wonderful melodic tune. Each note from A Beautiful Curse's music illustrates the diversity in the artist's music."
- Isaac Davis, Jr., M.B.A., Junior's Cave

"...From the groove to the lyrics its soothing ... "as it should be " is a great album to listen to."
- Thomas Bathurst - Think Tank Promotions

'…As It Should Be, a stunningly ambitious and divergent album that thrums with its own inner life.'
-Wildy - Wildy's World

Dream like Electronica music
A Beautiful Curse's latest album is "As It Should Be." This album, for the most part, contains lower tempo Electronic music; which at times is quite psychedelic and is aimed at almost being "positive dream music" for the listener. The opener, "On the Other Side," starts off with beautiful female vocals over an almost gritty and menacing background rumble before a trip-hop like beat comes in to take over the song. "A Mind of Its Own" is a more fantasy-like song in which a steady beat is held down with ambient sounds and vocals fading in and out from all directions. The song, "This Is My House," is an all out Electronica track with a dancing and pulsating beat that will make you want to stand up and groove. This album is an amalgam of contemporary psychedelic styles which all come from a place of positive inspiration. If you appreciate slightly hallucinatory electronic sounds, or like any type of dream-like music, then you might agree this album is exactly "As It Should Be."
