5.0 out of 5 stars The man behind the melody January 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Sophomore album for Raheem Devaughn is just as good if not better than the first album. The album just like the first displays the vocals of the very talented raheem devaughn over some very good tracks. Track by track he displays his love and respect for women. It is good to hear an adult album amongst the slew of albums that have been released by teenagers lately. The only song on the album I didn't care for is FRIDAY (SHUT DOWN THE CLUB). Its not a bad song, it just doesn't really fit in on this album. All the other songs are bangers. Some of my go to songs are DESIRE, EMPTY, and MARATHON featuring Floetry. This album is dope don't sleep!!!!!

I was introduced to Raheem DeVaughn when I heard the song "Guess Who Loves You More". The song sampled the classic Earth, Wind & Fire track "Can't Hide Love" and the song quickly became one of my favorites in the year 2004. I was anticipating the release of Raheem's debut CD but the project kept getting pushed back. I finally heard another track "Believe", which was a nice slow jam and finally in 2005 we were blessed with Raheem DeVaughn debut CD entitled The Love Experience. The title track instantly became my favorite track as Raheem went through the experiences in his life when he did people wrong and people did him wrong when the word love became involved. Since, he had personal experiences to be able to relate to, he had a better understanding of what love was. My other favorite tracks ended up being "You", "Breathe", "Where I Stand", "Ask Yourself" and "Who". This CD remained in heavy rotation for awhile and I was definitely looking forward to see what the future held for Raheem DeVaughn.

I began to hear a track from Raheem entitled "Woman" and I was glad to hear that the track was the 1st single from his new CD entitled "Love Behind The Melody". Raheem's dedication to every grandmother, mother, sister and baby mama across the world was produced by Carl "Chucky" Thompson who produced Emily King's East Side Story that was released last year. If you do not have Emily's CD you should definitely pick that up. It's one of my favorite r&b releases from 2007.

"Love Behind The Melody" was released on January 15, 2008. After the 1st single, Raheem gives us "Love Drug" which was produced by Scott Storch.

After the releases of "The Love Experience" and "Love Behind the Melody", Raheem DeVaughn hasn't a thing to prove to anyone. He is a very talented vocalist and his lyrics are definitely among the best when comparing them to his male contemporaries. His words will keep a smile on your face. He says things that will make a woman's heart skip beats. "Love Behind the Melody" is such an impressive album, I can't decide which is better between it and his amazing "The Love Experience." I would say that this one is more consistent than his first, so it has the upper hand. "Love Behind the Melody" is inundated with ballads and mid-tempos with lots of piano and drum, lots of sincerity, all the work of a seemingly sincere and mellow gentleman.

I'm a sucker for live instrumentation, and this album has much of that! "Love Drug" has crafty lyrics as well as some talented individuals on the instruments. "Friday (Shut the Club Down)" samples The Temptation's hit "My Girl." I had a great time listening to this song, especially the parts where DeVaughn apes the Temps. "Desire" and "Marathon" have somewhat eerie production, but are remotely enjoyable nonetheless. "Marathon" features two incredibly talented women, Floetry! Their collaboration with DeVaughn is alright, but with all this talent in one studio, a better result surely could have been birthed. Oh, well. "Four Letter Word" is one of the more memorable moments on this LP. I particularly reveled in the melody; it is nothing short of fantastic! Also, this album's production is all kind of similar, but this song is very different than the rest of the album. It is imperative that everyone pay special attention to the lyrics on the phenomenal song, "Woman." This is easily one of the best songs dedicated to women in decades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My Word... Lightening has struck twice January 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Yes. Yes. Lightening seems to be the only word I can associate with the great Raheem Devaughn. Since I've bought the cd I've had nothing but awe strike me just as lightening has. As good as the first one, fine tuned, and full of soul and thats saying a whole lot. Great Follow up album Mr.Devaughn. Since This review is a little premature considering the fact that I just purchased the album a couple of hours ago. Yes I love this album but..... Just like "Sweet tooth", " "Friday", leaves a lot to be desired, but all in all a winner. I can't seem to say enough about this man and his seemingly flawless music writing so I will let the album speak for itself. Again Good Work and I hope to see you and your twentith album someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real "R" in R&B!!! January 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
One listen to Love Behind The Melody & you'll understand why Raheem is R&B's best kept secret. He has crafted a musical masterpiece that gives new hope to people who feel that R&B has taken a nose dive due to teenage pop and Vocoders (T-Pain) or just total lack of focus from the artist (R. Kelly). He even managed to get the possible "last" song from the original Floetry! The only flaws I see are the Friday song & the fact that I would've enjoyed more full songs instead of interludes but they also set the scene for the next song to come. This album is clearly for the ladies but it also serves as a helpful tool for the fellas who have trouble expressing themselves, "She's Not You & Mo' Better" provide those tools! If you haven't heard The Love Experience pick it up & Play both in rotation and you'll hear great music and the new heir to the throne!....R. KELLY WATCH YOUR BACK! REAL R&B IS BACK!!!

Top 5 Fav's
1. Mo' Better
2. She's Not You
3. Marathon
4. Desire
5. Love Drug
