Let’s Get To What’s Real

"This album is something that I needed to do, for me," Elliott Yamin says of the aptly-titled Let's Get to What's Real, his third album and his first Purpose Music Group/eOne release. "It feels right, and it feels like who I am as an artist. I wanted to make something raw and soulful and organic, so I went wherever the music ... Read more in Amazon's Elliott Yamin Store

Editorial Reviews

2009 sophomore album from the American Idol (Season 5) favorite. The album follows Yamin's 2007 gold debut Elliott Yamin, which is the highest Independent debut by a new artist in the history of the Billboard chart (#1 on the Independent Album chart, #2 on the R&B chart and #3 on the Top 200 chart). The new album spotlights a number of co-writes by Yamin, as well as writing and production by Johnta Austin, Stargate, Jermaine Dupri, Harvey Mason Jr., Eman, Midi Mafia and JR Rotem, among others.

Elliott Yamin's rise to stardom continues to take him even higher with the release of this incredible album. He delves deep into each number to create a passionate set of songs that would touch the heart of any living being. This album was not only worth the wait; it establishes him as someone who's still going places fast with his excellent writing and vocal prowess. Elliott takes each song and works it into a stunner; there's not a dud in the bunch. His voice is strong yet he is able to convey all the emotions of each word he ever sings; I'm very impressed. This guy's a winner! Watch where you buy this, however--different vendors offer different bonus tracks for this album; and I don't believe that the same bonus tracks are available on more than one website.

The album starts with "Let Love Be;" Elliott sings this out with a lot of energy and it makes a fine beginning track for this album. The beat is great and Elliott never lets go of a superfluous note! The musical arrangement enhances the quality of this opener, too. In addition, I also like ""Know Better;" Elliott remains squarely front and center--right where he belongs! "Know Better" is great music--and besides, since when did Elliott ever sound better? "Know Better" is powerful stuff.

The title track, "Fight For Love," has an excellent beat and the percussion really works well in the musical arrangement. Elliott handles complex tempo and key changes like a pro. "You" has Elliott in the spotlight as he laments his unrequited love; and "Can't Keep Loving You (From A Distance)" is absolutely perfect--this one's all THAT good.

"Don't Be Afraid" has Elliott singing to a woman he loves that she should take a chance and let herself fall in love with him; and this poignant ballad works well on many levels.

This album is solid and certainly shows growth from Elliott's debut disc. The title track/lead single is definitely radio-ready and has all the potential to become a sleeper hit like "Wait For You". It's especially good in stereo so you can hear the cool bass line.

As for rest of the album, the most interesting tracks are the upbeat ones:
-Let Love Be - a cool R&B ditty (kind of wish the whole album sounded like it)
-Know Better - a catchy soul/pop blend with mucho hit potential
-Don't Be Afraid - a smooth dance track that could have been penned by Ne-Yo himself
-Cold Heart - a real funky number which Elliott infuses with attitude

For me, the slower soft pop material tends to blend together, which is why after several listens, I find it hard to remember any line from Can't Keep On Loving You, How Do I Know, or This Step Alone.

The good thing is that Elliott has killer pipes, so even when a couple of songs start to drag, he lets out some ridiculous riff that gains my attention--and admiration.

Listening to Fight For Love is hearing Elliott Yamin taking another big step in maturity and emerging as a singer and artist with a distinctive sound.

Let Love Be is a rhythmic romp that gets the CD off to a flying start. Know Better, one of my favorites is uptempo, but highlights Elliott's vocal chops, more than moving you towards the dance floor.

Fight For Love...it's a good message, a great fit for radio and Elliott is at his smooth R&B best, sultry, surprising and ultimately superb in style and technique. The chorus is easy for those of us wannabe's to sing along with.

I'd like to see Elliott do something a little more edgy, and you sense he's definitely moving in that direction. But I have nothing but high praise for this Indie artist who's choosing to do it "his way."

We need more talented singers like Elliott Yamin.

It's been two years since his debut album but if "Fight for love" is any indication, the new one is worth the wait. I listened to other snippets from the new CD and seriously...Gorgeous. If he doesn't get a couple of mega hits from it I will be shocked. The production is 100% better than the last CD and the songs are way better showcases for Elliott's amazing voice and styling.

Elliott Yamin was my choice for the american idol during season 5. I am so glad the world is getting another chance to hear from him. I knew he was awesome the first time I heard him sing in the idol auditions and I rooted for him the entire time. I was so disappointed when he lost, that I haven't even really watched the show since. Well it turns out he didn't need american idol after all. His first album was great and this one is even better. It is a classic at this point for me. All the tracks are awesome. His voice is so moving, soulful and just simply wonderful. And with 90% hearing loss in one of his ears, it's amazing how spot on his tone is. I can't believe at one point in his life he didn't think he was a good singer and that he could do this professionally. Well Elliott you are not a good singer, you are clearly one of the best I have ever heard. And I listen to all genres of music. Your voice is so sick, it's ridiculous. I have heard him sing live with just a guitar to back him and he is the real deal. This album should appeal to everyone. I love it from beginning to end, but I absolutely love "Know Better". I cannot stop listening to that one. I truly hope this album goes platinum for him. Elliott, I love you. You are and will always be my "American Idol". Please get this album. You will not be disappointed. I hope we get to hear many more from him.
