Review

If this is an appetizer, we can't wait until the full meal! Eric Roberson initially put this set together to whet people's appetite for his next album -- which is still a long way off -- but in doing so, he realized that he had way more tracks than he thought for the original EP, and he decided to release the set as a full album by itself! The set sports 10 tracks in all and like Roberson's work on the excellent Vault albums, there's a personal, heartfelt style here that blows away most other male soul singers working today. Each tune is accompanied by some great notes by Eric that let you really get inside his head, and which show why he's one of the hippest, smartest singers working today. --Dusty Groove America

7*** Album author: GaryF This Album is nothing short of excellent. Killer track for me is softest lips(keeps me thinking of my wife). Eric is so gifted in the lyrical and groove departments of music, that I'm glad to be blessed with having all his albums and this Appetizer has really set me up for the main course next year. Going on from his track record I'm looking forward to Album of the year 2006! --CD Baby

Fantastic, I love it! author: Kys-One, lover of music I love this CD it stays in my player in my car for constanst repeat, my favorite song is "Softest Lips". Eric is very consistent in his production of smooth mellow sounds. I highly recommend this CD to others. If you have never heard his music before, this would be a wonderful CD for your introduction to his musical genius. --CD Baby

Product Description

I called this album the appetizer because that is what it is... well that was what it was supposed to be. The plan was to make an E.P. of five songs to satisfy people s hunger, till my album came out next year. Well, I couldn t settle on which five to choose from so I did ten... a range of old and new songs that show my growth, my soul, and my love for honest music. Some may think I m crazy for doing this, but let me tell you; it is beautiful to own your own destiny and be able to do what you feel in your heart. To have that and not do it? That s crazy to me. Enjoy... - Eric Roberson Known for his insightful lyrics and soothing vocals, Roberson has cooked up another delightful smorgasbord of tasty honest music. The menu includes fulfilling vittles, opening with N2U, a fun and satisfying freestyle duet with Marsha Ambrosius, the singing half of popular R&B group Floetry. The delightful, uptempo tune What I Gotta Do is instantly infectious; while the energetic, Chicago-style stepping groove called Hesitation will make you want to hit the dance floor immediately. Erro s ballads are always delectable, and the chosen ones here are no exception. Softest Lips is undoubtedly a mouth-watering gem, while Just A Dream is simply an aural cloud on earth. And The Moon Eric s well sought-after recording debut will send you down a fond memory lane of the early 90 s new jack swing era. The audible feast gratifyingly concludes with the delectable For Da Love Of Da Game, the result of a spontaneous jam session with fellow indie crooners Raheem DeVaughn and V, when all three were integral members of the A Touch Of Jazz production family. On the production side, in addition to his own work, Eric again worked with Andre Harris, Vidal Davis, Kev Brown, Osunlade, Redhead Kingpin, Jermaine Mobley, and Jeff Townes (more popularly known as DJ Jazzy Jeff) - many of today s most popular producers in Hip-Hop, R&B, and Soul music. This wasn t a move to be associated with the hot producer of the moment, but a component of Roberson s normal modus operandi working with friends. Friends who happen to be the hot producers of the moment! Backed by an experienced team of family and friends, the New Jersey native has been able to be innovative in his thinking; daring in his choices; and honest with his music. His legions of loyal fans feel the sincerity and repay him with their constant support. Plus, they love his uncanny ability to tell their life stories, without knowing them! There s a void in the industry for honest music and he is filling it. He's authentic. His songs are everybody's songs, says one fan after one of his infamously energetic concerts.

I give this CD 4 stars because only a great CD should get 5 stars. There is no formula music here. This is REAL music, that expresses real thoughts by normal folks.

There is one great song on here that all the so called adult contemporary stations should be playing. This song is called THE MOON. All the other songs are good with HESITATION, SOFTEST LIPS and FOR DA LOVE OF DA GAME being very good in my opinion.

How times have changed. Once upon a time rap, gansta rap and hip hop were underground and ignored by mainstream. Now real music is underground and ignored by mainstream.

This is a very good CD - buy it if you like good music - real music!

As a teenager growing up in the nineties in the D.C. Area I can recall hearing Eric Roberson's first single The Moon back in 1994 on local DC radio stations. Fourteen years later I discovered this talent again and I have to say he truly is in a class by himself. For one to appericate Mr.Roberson you have to see him live. I had the chance to see Mr. Roberson at the begining of the year and I was througly impressed, espically when he sang The Moon followed by a sernade of the classic Prince slow jam Adore. The songs you'll find on this CD include the sensual Sofest Lips and the heartfelt Momma Told Me. All in Eric Roberson never had the chance to shine and in today's music world he could easily hold his own against R.Kelly or anyone else in the R&B field today.

AFTER PURCHASING HIS LATEST CD(LEFT), I THOUGHT I WAS ON TOP OF THINGS. HOWEVER AFTER LISTENING TO THE APPETIZER,I REALIZED THAT I WAS WAY OFF.THIS ALBUM IS WARM,SENSUAL, AND SEXUAL; BUT IN A VERY CLASSY WAY. I PLAY THIS CD MORE THAN HIS LATEST. IT'S A SHAME AN ARTIST OF THIS CALIBER ISN'T GETTING MORE SPINS. BUY THIS CD AND YOU WILL BE LIBERATED.

It's not as good as I thought it would be, but an OK Eric Roberson CD is still better than the BEST CD from most of these clowns out today!

If I didn't already have the song, it would have been worth the money just to have "Just a Dream" in my collection. Beautiful song!

I bought his album Left before I purchased this and I just simply fell in love with it. Then I went to iTunes and seen "Appetizer" and was like oh my goodness, I'm swooning over this one! I found out about him in 2006 but he's been around since like the early 90's or something. This guy has true TALENT and it's such a shame that radio, televsion etc. "sleeps" on him. If you love some REAL R&B, you need to buy this album. I see he has others and I'm going to buy those as well since I see the reviews are good....

This man's talent is incredible! After hearing him on internet radio, I purchased The Vault,vol. 1.5 from there it was on!! I like the way he combines words to the music... it just flows. I don't understand why I don't hear him on mainstream radio cause he has more talent than a lot of what's being played and better still has "staying power" that promises to stand the test of time.

This is a great compilation if you are new to the world of Eric Roberson. For me, I just got introduced to this great musician on his "Mr. Nice Guy" album. Now I am searching for the rest of his work.
