+FRERO Hangout: "DOLA is my personal choice for CD of the year."
+THEO/Kreyol La: "RICHIE and GRACIA. Lyrically and musically, they were above the rest."
+PIPO: "We can't take away this award from T-Vice. The band was in a slump, they dropped this CD, epi Van Vire."
+TI JOE ZENNY: "CD that has made the most noise for 2007 belongs to T-Vice, therefore my vote for this award goes to them."
+JUNIOR VAVAL: "T-Vice's cd Bat tout lot yo net pou 2007 la."
+NANDY KONPAREZON: "T-Vice wins this one. Everything you need you find on that CD."
RESHKA/FOS BARON: From the first song to the last song, TVice's cd is the one for 2007 as CD of the year."
+KENNY DESMANGLES: "I think KDANS deserves this award. Yo fe yon bel travay sou cd an."
+BERTHO/ZENITH: "TVice's CD is the one for 2007. The cd did a lot for TVice in the business."
+JENSEN DESROSIERS: "TVice made great improvement on their last CD. I also believe it is the cd that sold the most."
+STEPHANE GILLES/Sweet Miky: "CD of the year is T-Vice. I was at a T-Vice party 2 weeks after their album came out & every song from the album they played that night, the crowd new the words to them, so that says a lot.
+CAREL PEDRE: "Alan Cav√© is the only CD between those all I can listen to it "De la t√™te au pied."
+MIA LOPEZ KEBREAU: "CD OF THE YEAR - Hands down T-Vice, for the first time in a decade, T-Vice has made an album that you don't need to skip through and only listen to your 2 favorites, its full of spectacular songs... Carimi and Kreyol La for me have always been that type of band to make those albums, but T-Vice hit the JACKPOT with Olivier and now they've left these bubble gum groups behind and made their own success with that type of Compas."
+TI LIONEL BENJAMIN/Krezi: "I believe everyone is unanimous about it: T-Vice. Lyrics are good, melodies on point, mixing as well. I think its their best work so far."
+ELIE LAPOINTE/Djakout: "Tvice album of the year san pale anpil . Album nan byen elabore, byen mikse, anpil collabo ...#1."
+SHADINE/Hip Magazine: "TVICE: A lot of maturing for the group here. A socially conscience song (Ayiti pap kraze), feel good songs (Cheche fanm pa w and Kite m viv) as well as love jas (santi m ta kriye, and j'aimerai te revoir). The sound is better, the songs all good and diverse. They stepped it up big time."
+FABRICE ROUZIER: "The best is not necessary the most popular. Most Popular goes to T-Vice, but the best goes to Dola."
+PAPA JUBE: "KREYOL LA" it was simply a great album."
+KEPY RECORDS: "T-Vice. I think this one goes to them hands down. The album is just very well put together with the exception of song placement in my opinion but the material is very solid and on point. You can tell they put a lot of work into the album and it paid off. Till this day the album is selling well in the stores. It would of made a bigger impact if the right promotion tactics were used and more time and money spent of promoting the album. But that's an industry wide handicap that one will overcome. There are a lot of great albums on that list, but they didn't accomplish what the Kite'm Viv album did."
+DJ SUPERDUKE: "Cd of the Year would have to be Kitem viv. I can play any track from this album and it will get people going. The first time you hear this Cd you don't need to skip any tracks. It is well produced, arranged and the sound quality is definately on point."
