“Bang! Bang!” isn’t exactly a creative departure from Toni B’s brand of harrowing confessionals, but it recognizes her strength as a singer-songwriter with a voice that demands to be heard. Toni is unstoppable when she sings the hell out a song, enriching it with the kind of remorse and vulnerability honed through years of experience.
Taken as a whole document, “Bang! Bang!” casts an even vaster shadow than anything she has released yet. Wrap her chops with richly textured production and you’ll hear her destroy everything that comes her way. Stream:
