DESCRIPTION
Good Things marks a shift in methodology from personal to political for Aloe, who refers to the project as his report on present conditions -- joblessness, homeless, the misappropriation of wealth, pillaging of resources, and a universal lack of compassion from the capitalism at-large under which we all function, but some struggle to survive. Song titles such as ''You Make Me Smile'' and ''Miss Fortune,'' coupled with airy, ethereal production from Truth & Soul's Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman, mask a foreboding undercurrent in which Aloe crafts lyrics both thoughtful and thought-provoking. Nowhere is this more evident than on lead single, ''I Need a Dollar'' -- commissioned by HBO as the theme music for the series ''How to Make It in America'' -- because ultimately, that is how to make it in America.
