Disheartened with the state of R&B is a gross understatement. Enter Lalah...the wait between releases has been far too long, but oh so worth the wait. This is arguably one of the best releases of 2004. Her rendition of Forever, For Always, For Love is superb. The tone, and inflection is what separates the master from the student. My other favorites include Better and Better, More, Outrun The Sky, and Boston. On Admit It, there are subtle nuances that remind me of her father and he would certainly be proud of this project. My very favorite song is We Were 2. I don't know if this is something she experienced but she has me convinced. You can feel the pain in her voice. This is a cd I have no problem recommending to everyone I know. I really hope everyone supports this project. She is the perfect image of what's missing in music today. I absolutely love this cd!

I have waited so long for this album....I've been listening to A Moment,Lalah last full length album for the past 10 years and Its still as fresh as it was back then ,but its great to have something new from one of my favorite artists.Lately I've been hearing alot of bad music by basically mediocre singers out today.Its been too long,but I must say,its about time.

My favorite songs are as follows:

1.How many times

2.Admit It

3.Forever,For Always,For love (which is also on the Luther Vandross tribute album)

4.Boston (which I 1st heard on her web site,very sentimental song)

5.More

6.If you Ever

7.We Were 2

8.Outrun The Sky

I'll have to have two copies of this...one for the car another for the house.

Thank you for reminding the world that music can do more than sell jeans & soda...and what the human voice can do when true talent exists and the heart, mind, & soul are aligned! Thank you for showing us how to make a record! My favorites? Right now, Outrun The Sky, Boston, & Stronger are my best friends...but this CD will be keeping me company for a long time to come!

After far too long a wait, Lalah Hathaway's OUTRUN THE SKY is here, and it turns out to be one of the finest releases of the year.

Hathaway wraps her smooth, silky voice around the each melody, giving added dimension to every word- it has become cliche, but this REALLY IS one girl who could sing the telephone book to you, and it would sound wonderful!

And the track selection doesnt disappoint- a few uptempo tracks delight ("Back Then" for example), and then Lalah lays down her superior remake of Luther's "Forever, For Always, For Love", one of the best covers of a Vandross song I have heard.

And they keep coming- she breaks it down on "We Were 2", and the bittersweet "Boston" is a beautiful closing track. But the centerpiece of the album, a definite gem, is title track, an irresistable piece of heartfelt soul. A midtempo track, with organic production, "Outrun the Sky" sparkles with Lalah's wistful lyrics and her assured delivery.

Her father was an undisputed genius, and now Lalah Hathaway is moving towards sharing the same regard...OUTRUN THE SKY is highly recommended...

If your voice sounds this good it's ridiculous why it takes you 10 yrs to put out new music. I was driving in the car on Friday & I heard like 2 bars of Forever, For always... & instantly turned it up full blast, I knew it was Lalah. No one can sound like her. She shouldn't even talk, she should just sing everything she has to say! This album is right on time. That's for sure. I strongly recommend you getting 2 copies 1 for you and 1 for a friend.

Being the child of a legendary singer and choosing the same profession can be difficult. For Lalah Hathaway, the daughter of legendary singer Donny Hathaway, who's listed as a musical influence by famous artists in every music genre, it would seem both an enormous blessing and a burden to exist in the shadow of such an icon. But somehow, Hathaway handles the weight of her lineage with grace and integrity. Of course, it doesn't hurt that she's undeniably talented in her own right.

Last year, Hathaway released her third record, "Outrun the Sky," which marked the welcome return of this exceptional singer, who's fans have been waiting 10 years for a new release. If her large, active website community of about 500 enthusiasts is any indication, her audience hasn't diminished in the least between albums. Instead, they've eagerly scooped up any recording featuring a single note from Hathaway. In the years since her last record, she's been featured on a number of notable recordings from other artists, including Grover Washington, Wayman Tisdale, Marcus Miller, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Joe Sample.

Outrun the Sky displays Hathaway's jazzy, hearty voice perfectly, as she can do a torch singer ballad as well as she does an uptempo R&B groove. Evidence of this can be found on the album's first two singles, the Luther Vandross tribute, "Forever, For Always, For Love, which is arguably better than the original, and the crazy in love, upbeat track "Better and Better."

While on record Hathaway sounds absolutely flawless, her live performances are an even greater representation of her voice and spirit. On stage, Hathaway is luminous. Her voice is impeccable live, and watching her sing is like receiving a giant shot of oxygen.
