ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Welcome to The Marry Me Experiment (originally titled Black.Out III: Marry Me) the 5th official CD release from “Mr. Fixx-it” himself. Voted one of the Top 10 Indie CD’s for 2005 by The Advocate Magazine and OUT Magazine has recently proclaimed T. Fixx as one of the top 5 artists to look out for, in 2006.

In Robert Urban’s review on Afterelton.com he states, “Tori Fixx’s latest CD, Marry Me, is a rich, dense, well-produced brew of overlaying sound sources of all kinds. Rap-wise, it's thick with words, rhymes and thoughtful social observations. “Whether he’s rapping about a relationship between two individuals, or about the problems of society as a whole, Tori’s lyrics on Marry Me, which also features guest performances by glbt rap artists Johnny Dangerous, Katastrophe, Dutchboy, Aggracyst, Sista Gyrl and Harley Wood, seem to document the current anxious, fractured, polarized “zeitgeist” of America today.

Marry Me also contains steamy same-sex love songs, with words of passion that pour forth like homoerotic stream-of consciousness love sonnets. There’s no escaping the intensity of Tori’s deep-down romantic sensibilities or his desire for old-fashioned love. He can be humorous, as in “Soul Food,” broken-hearted, as in “Area Code 404,” or even playfully spoofing of typical hip-hop sexual braggadocio as in “I’m Right Here”: In tracks like “Act-a-Fool,” “Lee Vita Alone,” “Keep Tellin’ Yourself,” Tori’s keen philosophical eye penetrates even deeper, perhaps too deep. He sees the innate failures of human nature on personal, social, and political levels, and somehow blends them together into one dark, existential outlook. As he asks in "Act-a-Fool," “what cha gone do / when the love U got ain’t the physical love that U were hoping 4 / when the Universe cracks a window of opportunity instead of just opening a door / would U act a fool / or would U just be cool."

Tori build’s his insightful rap poetry from the bottom up, starting with a cleverly crafted base layer of combined hip-hop, R&B, house and electro sounds. Upon this funk-solid foundation he constructs striking hooks, melodies and beats. There’s a touch of Will Smith’s jocular bounce in Tori’s grooves and vocal delivery, and some of Prince’s cleverness pervading the CD’s overall sound.There are elements of both vintage drum machines and new digital percussion samples in Marry Me’s techno music beds. Most hauntingly, dispersed here and there, are tiny samples (very short in length and constituting only one chord or one beat) of what I swear are mini-snippets of classic old soul/R&B/funk tunes, like old Curtis Mayfield.

Always serves just what is needed
I've been a fan of Tori for a while, and glad I have been able to collect all his music. Marry Me gives listeners an updated look into his personal and political views and is a great blend. Tori always serves just want is needed, and I appreciate getting new material from him whenever he can drop it. This is a CD you can listen to str8 through, and then hit repeat.

Loved "Marry Me"
I had mixed feelings about this CD. Tried to find it at Tower Records - no go. So I ordered it. Great variety of sounds. Now it is installed in my alarm clock player and I hear it every morning. My advice? Buy it!!
