5.0 out of 5 stars COP THIS!!! April 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw Eric perform live on an obscure television show called 8101, off of the Colors network. From that time, I have been on an independent mission to cop his work. To say Eric has a beautiful voice would be stating the obvious. What is most impressive is that he writes most of his music, which judging from the CD liner notes, are based on real experiences. Having said that, whatever emotion, Eric felt when writing the songs is absolutely captured in the texture and tone of his voice. This is some real, non digitalized, homegown w/o hormones singing. Yes, it has been said that neo soul is Dead... Perhaps, but Eric is literally the second coming of neo soul. Not one song on this album is bad, even the experimental bonus track, which reminds of a tune from the 80's. The lyrics are outstanding. Please step outside the R n B box, I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars He's back! June 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I remember reviewing Roberson's 2001 CD Esoteric last year and saying that he reminded me of Anthony Hamilton, Donnell Jones and I third man I couldn't put my finger on at the time. A fellow reviewer subsequently (and helpfully) pointed out that it might be Dwele and he was absolutely right. Roberson and Dwele do sound very similar but I believe Roberson has a bit more punch. He seems prepared to take his music to a more varied number of places, be more experimental, if you will.

Well, he's back with a new set and it's another breath of fresh air. All the songs on this album speak of one personal experience or the other. He co-writes the entire album and there are good quality songs here, full of originality. He uses a variety of producers but they all do a very admirable job. But it's all about Roberson's voice, really, at the end of the day. This is a man who actually SINGS! A genuine soul singer who sings from the heart. The man has an air of love, joy and sheer energy about him that I feel blowing over me every time I listen to his music. He brings a smile to my face every time.

I love the sax solos on the opener, "Music", played by Jeffrey Jones & Harold Felder. "Been In Love..." (Featuring Phonte from Little Brother) is another favourite as is the deep slow burner, "Pen Just Cries Away".
I'm also really feeling "Only For You", "Too Soon", "If I Had A Chance" and "Right Or Wrong".

But I can't fault any of the songs, to be honest. This is exactly the kind of thing I look for when I buy a soul album. Interesting and uplifting songs that manage to stay clear of the gutter...

Which is why I was a little concerned when I saw the "The Baby Song" listed on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars History in the Making... March 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If there's anyone who doesn't know or you've never heard of Eric Roberson some how, he is the leading voice in the underground soul scene. He sure does not disappoint with his latest project "LEFT". I've never heard songs filled with so many different views, emotions, and character. You'll find a song for ANY situation you've might have went through or are going through.

"Music" the title track is a great opener. Eric does a great job bringing you in to the true meaning of what music is all about...

"Pen Just Cries Away" another outstanding song, is about someone who because of his last relationship, he can't help but write in the sad mood he's in. THAT IS SO TRUE (for any writers out there...)

"ILuvU2Much" another classic feat the talented and beautiful Algebra, explains that no matter how hard it is to walk away from a relationship you have to love yourself enough if it's hurting you. Nice uptempo duet..

"Pretty Girl" a smooth tune, talks about a girl who doesn't know how to get by in life without using her beauty. And Eric trying to school her on why she shouldn't and what could happen to her... The way he sings with sympathy for her is crazy good...

"Open Your Eyes" says it all. Listen and you will definitely feel it after you do...

"The Baby Song" is one of the most original songs EVER. What a fun way to explain the process of the last moments before child birth. GENIUS.

I could go on and on because each song has it's own uniques story, and there is not one song you would skip over on this CD...

If you don't own this Cd yet or any of his music, please try it, cause I know it will change you perspectives on music. It changed mine...

5.0 out of 5 stars please give it up for roberson July 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
To me this is the best R&B cat never to blow up. I can't imagine what it is that people want from r&b. It is not hip hop even though that's the only way people tend to identify it. He's too good to fall through the cracks. My favorite track is without question "Too Soon". His ability to flow over smooth music with heart felt lyrics without sounding like a huge cornball is magical on this track along with the rest of the CD.
Too bad radio is too busy riding the jocks of the dirty south to give true talent some play on their tired programs. The music industry is depressing to a true music lover. Pick up this CD and you can feel free to respond to me however you want if you don't like. This is SPLENDID work by this brother. By the way another loved track is "Pretty Girl". Just go get it.
