On "A Change Is Gonna Come", Wayne actually sounds like Sam Cooke in some parts!

Yes, fans he finally did it. Wayne Brady's first album is here and it jumps out from the first single "Ordinary". It is anything but ordinary; this album could easily be used as an R&B Rosetta Stone. Delivered with the ease of a seasoned veteran, Brady takes you through a concert reminiscent of a small venue type atmosphere. Unlike many singers today the music is the focal point. Brady does this with clean vocals and straight forward grooves. Listening to this album is like going back to the beginning of R&B, when a man sung a song that was raw and pure. Although they are covers the tracks "All I Do" and "Can't Buy Me Love" sound fresh and original. While "Back in the Day" and "Sweetest Berry" are original tunes, the vibe is distinctively winding back the clock to when R&B was alive and free. Vocalists old and new would do well to observe this formula......this is what R&B has been missing.

Not only is Wayne funny and hot, but this guy can sang!!! He has a beautiful voice and he's done some great work with this album. I love the opening track Ordinary, and the remake Can't Buy Me Love. He's taken that and made it his own - it is fresh and soulful and amazing. He never over-sings, and yet vocally he is very on point. Some of these songs are remakes (Can't Buy Me Love and All I Do), which he does a terrific job with, and the new songs are great too. A Change Is Gonna Come is another favourite of mine (and another good remake) and now Wayne is a favourite singer of mine.
If you love Soul/R&B music, then this is a cd you must pick up. Wayne is seriously talented (and hot to boot) and I can't recommend this highly enough. I have played it through several times now, yet on the first go I already fell in love with it. I hope this is the start of a long singing career for him. Brilliant.

Ah-h-h-h yeah, do it Wayne, take us back !!! I love this CD, couldn't wait to play it in the car on the way home from Tar-jay. Favorites are "Ordinary", "Back in the Day", "Beautiful Ugly" and an awesome rendition of Stevie Wonder's "All I Do."

This is an absolute must buy for 2008. All the tracks are incredible and if you are a Brian McKnight fan you will hear the influence and of course Wayne's exceptional talent. An excellent album.

I've had "Ordinary" on repeat since I bought it. I love it!! The rest of the tracks are very good, too. I love the Marvin Gaye feel on "FWB." "Back in the Day" made me LOL amazing lyrics and so many things that I could remember. "You and Me" is tough but Wayne you have nailed it with a great work on this entire cd. I love this beautiFULL, EXTRAORDINARY cd. Bravo and Continued success.

Okay, I know I am REALLY late with this review - only because I didn't even hear this CD until two days ago. I have always been aware of Wayne Brady and his many talents but didn't consider myself a "fan" of his. He has always struck me as sort of a squeaky-clean song and dance man, a la Ben Vereen/Sammy Davis, Jr. who also happens to be a comedian. He is sort of a rarity in today's entertainment world, which is filled with so-called "entertainers" who possess something some folks refer to as talent on a very limited level, and receive accolades for being mediocre.

Wayne Brady is different. He is extremely gifted, but he doesn't get all the props he should. Guess he isn't thuggish enough, huh? I, like so many others, remember very well his startling and straight up hilarious guest appearance on Dave Chappelle's show years ago, and of course, "Whose Line Is It Anyway", "Don't Forget the Lyrics" and his short-lived variety show. I always knew he could sing, but hearing this CD made me so upset with myself because I hadn't purchased it sooner. I heard it while driving around this weekend with a friend and was floored. This is Wayne Brady?! Damn!!
His voice is an instrument of beauty - rich, passionate and soulful.
And guess what? He just gained a new fan.

If you love both old school soul and contemporary R&B, then there is NO WAY you should not own this! This is good music we grown and sexy people can groove to, without the silly, oversexed lyrics and computerized junk that has invaded the once gorgeous art form of soul and R&B, and made it only a shadow of what it once was. Wayne brings the heat on his debut. Think of a little bit of Jamie Foxx, a less profane R. Kelly, and Brian McKnight, and you've got Wayne Brady, believe it or not!

This cd is great from start to finish. You would never think that Wayne Brady of all people would have such a good cd, because we are used to just seeing him on tv being silly. When I told people that I bought Wayne Brady's cd they thought I was crazy, then I let them listen to it and the rest is history. I highly recommend this cd for people who like R&B and songs from back in the day.

I give this 3.5. Wayne Brady can sing. It's a grown folks album. If you aren't a true R&B fan don't bother.
