Macy Gray 

The Trouble with Being Myself

Published August 14, 2003.Macy GrayThe Trouble with Being Myself (Epic)When you listen to Macy Gray's third album, you have to wonder why she isn't more acclaimed. She isn't a gimmicky artist thirsting for media attention (see Mariah, BeyoncØ or J. Lo). She simply tells it like it is, in her raspy child-like growl. This album is sexy, smooth and seductive, following closely in the footsteps of On How Life Is and The Id, but not going out of its way to do anything different. Which works just fine. Apparently, Macy isn't the one having trouble being herself. —Trevor Savory
