Editor's Note:  New Jersey socially conscious, mental health conscious trio America Part Two recently released their music video for "Welcome To The Times", which follows up with previously released singles "I Don't Wanna" and "Glaciers."  The aforementioned singles take on hatred, racism and those that are just creeps towards women head on with their emotionally charged lyrics and powerful arrangements.  Case in point, the single "I Don't Wanna" talks about when a woman says no, she means no and that's the end of the discussion.  In this mental health conversation with Madness To Creation, America Part Two members Alex Fabio(vocals/guitars), Fred Rainville(vocals/bass) and Sam Weingarten on drums discusses education, dealing with loss of a grandfather and their music.  Fans can find Ameri...

(Album Review): Black History Month Day 2: MTC Getting Educated “Greatest Hits” by EARTH, WIND & FIRE

This group has changed the sound of "black pop" forever.  They revolutionized the game.  How did this band do it?  How can a band be sensual and smooth sounding while being gamechangers and innovators in the writing and recording process?  Leave it to Earth, Wind & Fire with their 1998 "Greatest Hits" collection.  Let me tell you I'm getting educated with their grooves, their out of this world arrangements and their heavenly harmonies. The first track is "Shining Star".  We all know that one, but if you sit down with your eyes closed and your headphones on, you will develop a deep sense of appreciation of the harmonies and overall swagger that they possess.  This song was certified gold and went number one on the Pop and R&B charts.  Let me tell you about the next track "That's ...
