plateau, it’s time to create another. I’m just getting started.”

He was once hailed as the “new voice of ghetto soul.” No more. Avant can now be hailed as the “new voice of modern soul.” The proof is in the listening as the singer prepares to release his sixth album—and ... Read more in Amazon's Avant Store

When Avant graced the airwaves with his sensational debut single Separated quickly everyone draw comparisons to R. Kelly and rightly so but, after purchasing his debut cd and listening to it throughly.. This brotha has a style all his own .. Vocally yes there is some very strong comparisons to R.Kelly and yes he even kinda looks like R.Kelly but that is where the comparison stops.. You can tell that R.Kelly was a major influence on him .. Over the 12 track disc songs range from uptempo party grooves, midtempo grooves, sensual ballads .. Production is handled by newcomer Steve Huff after this effort will be a household name.. Steve Huff has begun to make a little noise on the music scene already with a track he wrote and produced on Joe's great cd My Name Is Joe the track he wrote and produce is Treat Her Like A Lady .. Avant is one of the brightest talents in R &B and this cd will prove it that he is going to be around for a while .. Among the highlites which are many on a very good album are as following
Let's Make A Deal
My First Love .. a great remake of the Rene & Angela tune .. This is true to the original song same arrangements check out fellow newcomer Ketara Wyatt she rips it
This Time
Pick this up you wont be disappointed

I would actually give this a CD a 4.5 if there was a selection for that. This is an impressive debut by Avant. I saw the video "Separated" on BET, but I thought to myself, Oh No! not another R Kelly wannabe. A reviewer, "Tony" recommended for me to buy this CD, so I decided to take his advice. "My Thoughts" is one of the best r&b CDs out now. The production is handled by Steve Huff, who produced a classic song on Joe's "My Name Is Joe" CD called, "Treat Her Like A Lady. I also found this out from "Tony". All 12 tracks are tight. You'll find a balance of slow songs, midtempo songs and uptempo songs. I'll have to admit Avant has surprised me with this CD. My favorite songs are "Let's Make A Deal", The 1st single, "Separated", "Get Away", "I Wanna Know" and "My First Love". I recommend this CD to anyone that likes current R&B CDs from Joe, Carl Thomas, or Donell Jones. This CD is worth the $13.

damn, is it just me or his avant off the chain? i love thisguy. i was first drawn into his music, when i heard"separated" and i couldn't get it out of my head. the brother could sing. the album is awesome, and much props to his founder. the first single "separated" has been tearing up the charts since day one. the song is a mid-paced track, with hot lyrics, and of course my man avant's powerful voice leading the way. i loved it since the first time i heard it. the remix though with kelly rowland & beyonce' knowles of destiny's child, i ain't really feeling though. the tracks that follow up aren't just corny songs, they are just as phat, if not phatter then the lead track. i love "get away", "happy", "my first love", "destiny", "ohhh ahh" & the powerful & moving ballad "why". he is the definet new voice in ghetto rnb soul. nobody out there now can match him. the reason i gave this cd four stars is because of 2 reasons. 1~) the album is way to short. when you get a talent like this you can't make the cd only 12 songs long, maybe 14, but not twelve. 2~) i don't like 2 songs. "lets make a deal" & "reaction". i don't hate them or anything i just can't get into them like i get into every other track. the moral of the story is this, pick up this album! its hot to death, and i can guarentee, that there will not be a hotter male rnb album out this year. pick it up.

Avant surprised me, as im sure he did with everyone else, with this release. Even without a follow-up single to "Seperated", I took a chance a bought this cd with the advice of fellow reviewers "Tony" and "James H2000". Again they pointed me in the right direction by recommending "My Thoughts" to me. At first when I heard songs like "Reaction" and "Happy" I thought I had wasted my money but after taking time to actually sit down and listen, the songs grew on me. He really succeeded with uptempo songs like "Serious" and "Reaction" but again I have to look at his ballad work. In one word Avant's ballads: Exceptional. "Let's Make a Deal" was perfect and "Ooh Aah" was just as good but they shy in comparison to his duet with Ketera Wyatt on "My First Love". This is definitely what R&B should be and showed me that amid those other uptempo beats, he really knew how to make a real love song. The orchestra accompanied ballad is probably going to be tha best song he ever makes. I say that because most people who have been out 10 times as long as he has could not create such a masterpiece. I lie to you not when i say that this song is beautiful enough to bring DMX to tears. So why only give this album only 4-4 1/2 stars? Length. I listened to this album while eating a Pop-Tart and it was done before I could get to the crust. But with the songs he put out on this album I would have accepted waste songs. Avant has a long lustrious career ahead of him, barring any accidents with production or sell-out songs.
