This is actually my first Wyclef Jean CD. I've heard of him before, and remember him from his song in Dirty Dancing, but I don't think I ever took the time to listen to his music. I was going through Entertainment Weekly when I saw the review for the CD. The track names captured my attention and I heard the first single "Sweetest Girl" featuring Akon and Lil Wayne. It wasn't that great, but I had some extra money so I got on Amazon and ordered the CD, because I already had a little cart going. What I really liked about the CD was that all the songs had great beats especially "Hollywood meets Bollywood". When you actually listen to most of the tracks, they have really deep meaning. The tracks discuss topics that we don't even like to mention in our own lives. One of the sogns is "What about the baby" which talks about dads who are not in their children's lives. "Heavens In New York" is my favorite track because it discusses all the things that has happened and that sometimes you have to live life to the fullest. "Slow Down" is a suprsingly good mix of T.I and Jean's voices. The songs lyrics are powerfull featuring events from the past couple of years and how the world is changing. If you take the time to listen to each track on the CD you will not be upset. Carnival Vol. II Memoirs of An Immigrant is great for anyone no matter taste in music.
