Editorial Reviews

"Woo" is the first single from Hamilton's 4th studio album, set for a December 13th release on RCA Records. The follow-up to Hamilton's Gold-certified, critically-acclaimed 2008 release The Point of it All, the new album will feature production by industry legends and Grammy Award winning producers Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Salaam Remi, Kelvin Wooten ("So in Love") and Hamilton, himself.

With his distinctive voice and signature grit, soul and funk, Hamilton has gained a steady and loyal fan base throughout his career beginning with his 2003 platinum-certified debut album Comin' From Where I'm From, which spawned the chart-topping song, "Charlene." In 2005, the Charlotte, North Carolina native followed up with his gold-certified sophomore album Ain't Nobody Worryin' which featured the #1 hit, "Can t Let Go." The singer/songwriter/producer released The Point of it All in 2008 to critical acclaim, including USA Today's declaration that Hamilton is "one of the genre's rare singers." In 2009, Hamilton won his first Grammy Award for his collaboration on Al Green's, "You Got the Love I Need."

5.0 out of 5 stars ~Back To Authentic Soul~ December 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Anthony Hamilton is one of the greatest soul singers in the industry who consistently graces us with great vocals and a great musicianship.
He returns after what feels like an eternity with 'Back To Love', easily one of the best CDs to be released this year. The album showcases just how wide the spectrum of soul music can be and fills a void left by a musical landscape oversaturated with dance cuts, sugary pop, and hip-hop that unimaginatively dwells on bling, cash, and women. On this album that is so good from start to finish, here are my top 5 for now:

>>"Mad" - A funky tribute to being grumpily and undeniably in love. It's underscored by a killer harmonica countermelody that plays like a best friend consoling his homie. The arrangement and the instrumentation - the horns, organ, guitar - are sheer perfection.

>>"Who's Lovin You" - A beautiful lament that caught me a bit off-guard. I wasn't prepared to be so moved by this tale of unrequited love.

>>"Life Has A Way" - A consummate exercise of soulful introspection. I found myself saying "you ain't lying!" after each verse.

>>"Never Let Go" - My eyebrow raised when I saw Keri Hilson's name because she's so urban contemporary for a CD that's so retro-soul. But this duet works very well and fits snuggly among the other tracks.

>>"More Than Enough" (from the Deluxe Version) - This feels like a jam session that Anthony and the band had in someone's basement or studio apartment on a nice sunny afternoon. This one is gonna sound great live!

Like many others, I chose not to pursue a career in music (I crunch numbers instead). But it actually hurts listening to musicianship this great (Anthony, band, and all) and not be a part of it as a musician even if I'm just supplying hand claps!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul has returned to music!!!!! December 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Anthony Hamilton is one of the most soulful singers within the R&B world, and within this album "Back to Love" he does not let us down!!! Anytime this artist performs, he puts his heart and soul into the song, and it is heard within this album. His single Woo has been hitting the airwaves and has been a great sign for a great return. "Back to Love" is guaranteed to have you either nodding your head to the music or tapping your foot! This album has its share of fast songs that can give you a good groove to, and it has its share of slow songs that make you reflect on life and love. Song songs have a nice R&B feel and some songs got a touch of the Ol Skool music that take you back. I've purchased the cd last night at 12:01am (thanks to Amazon mp3) and I've been playing it nonstop since. Its been a long awaited return for Anthony Hamilton, and this return is a great one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best R&B CD in 2011 December 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Sam Cooke. Marvin Gaye. Al Green. Luther Vandross.

Anthony Hamilton has entered this Hall of Greats (and I know I'm leaving a lot of great soul singers out). His new CD "Back To Love" just continues the greatness that his previous three CD's have shown the world. Everything he sings about, you feel down deep into your soul. From the new single "Woo," to the pensive "Life Has A Way," Anthony covers many moods and emotions.

I would hope that this terrific singer and musician could have the same kind of breakout that Adele has enjoyed this year. But, like a lot of music, he's probably too good to get songs on the radio. And that's a shame...everyone should hear this man sing these songs that he and his collaborators have created.

I don't recommend a whole lot of music on Amazon, but anyone who reads this needs to hear the samples and buy this music. Especially treat yourself to the Deluxe Edition with four extra songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars True soul - gritty, emotional, heart stirring SOUL!!! December 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I just love this cd. It was a long time coming but hey Anthony I'm not mad atcha. It was more than worth the wait. It is perfection. Not only do I love your voice and the message you bring, I felt every note played by your ensemble. The whole production was amazing and something we do not get enough of these days. Everybody is singing bout sex and bling. Who needs it? This is keeping it real, as they say. It speaks to grown folks. Thank you A.H. this CD is my Christmas present to me. Everybody reading this get you one too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb R&B Effort December 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Consistency in popular music, regardless of genre, can be extremely hard to find sometimes. So many artists, particularly `seasoned' artists release albums that fail to match-up well with their most revered or acclaimed works. Even the best artists oft-times have a weaker moment. With Anthony Hamilton, this stat has never been the case. Five studio albums in (excluding lost albums/unreleased efforts), Hamilton is as consistent as ever, proving to be one of few R&B artists who manage to deliver `the goods' each and every album. Back To Love (Deluxe Version) is another fine addition to Hamilton's rich discography that includes 2003's masterpiece Comin' From Where I'm From, 2005's soul-stirring Ain't Nobody Worryin', and 2008's Grammy-nominated The Point Of It All. The production is classic, the songwriting exemplifying excellence, and Hamilton's performances laced with soulful authenticity.

"Back to Love," the title track, opens the effort capably with nothing short of retro-soul production work. Neo-soul producer Salaam Remi delivers a `home-run' with the well crafted production, consisting of horns, soulfully harmonized background vocals (Hamilton's), and classic soul drums. The flute used here reminds one of the sound achieved by late soul singer Teddy Pendergrass on "Close the Door," given of a Philly Soul nod (Huff, Gamble). Follow-up cut "Writing on the Wall" continues the soulful masterclass with exceptional production by Mike City.
