Review: Crystal Waters – Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless) (House)

This review covers the house track Crystal Waters – Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless).

This track was released in 1991 as part of a single.

The track starts off with some key chords. The vocals then come in. Eventually, the beat comes in as the vocals take a non-lyrical turn.

The vocals then go into the next verse. They quickly go into the main chorus. This section is capped off with an instrumental section.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. Half of the main chorus then plays out. An instrumental section then plays out after that.

Half of the main chorus then plays out again. After that, an instrumental section plays out. The track then breaks down and leads out with the chord keys.

One thing I do like about the track is the non-lyrical vocal sections. In a way, it is actually quite mesmerizing. Given the themes playing out in this track, it fits quite well.

Another positive in this track is the lyrics. They do offer a very vivid image of the subject in question. So, it gets a thumbs up. On a similar note, I would have also liked to have heard more verse work to help fill up the latter portions of the track.

As far as the synths and other instruments are concerned, I do have mixed feelings on them. On the one hand, what is there is actually pretty good. On the other hand, it seems rather limited as well. After a while, it’s as if some of them just repeat because there is really nothing else to offer the listener.

Overall, this is a pretty decent track. What lyrics are there are nicely done, but they get limited on the later portions of the track. The non-lyrical vocal sections are nicely mesmerizing. The instrumental side of things is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, what is there is good, on the other hand, it is also quite limited in terms of overall quantity. So, a decent track all around.
