I found "Simplified" to be an excellent debut album. I like the diversity of the songs, one of those albums you can listen to over and over as it doesn't get boring. If you grew up in the 80's, you'll especially appreciate the touch of new wave that is thrown in. Decide for yourself if "Simplified" is soul, new wave, R&B or indie rock. A nice surprise if you purchase the album is that there are hidden songs on the CD, plus code words that let you hit Reggie's website and obtain more recordings. The ones on the website are as cool as the album tracks too. Also, an incredible live show...Reggie can dance, tell jokes, beat box, and of course sing...a true entertainer. I would recommend this album.

Wonderful writing, uncompromising yet radio friendly, tasty production, clean, embracing, subdued tension. But most of all, the voice...what a voice.
A powerful solo debut by a prolific performer, Simplified is another, totally simpatico, side of Maktub's Reggie Watts. Many would argue this is one of Seattle's emerging, many faceted, sounds. But most of all, what a voice.
Forget the comparisons, you'll read them elsewhere. Reggie owns his sound. No denying the influences, but it's all his own. In the not too distant future, critics will compare emerging voices to his.
Neo-soul, sophisticated pop, sit and relax dance, you decide. But if you're looking for the sweet spot between old-school and new school, get Simplified. What a voice.

If you have experienced Maktub, then hold on for another great ride. Vocalist Reggie Watts is what makes Maktub a great band. Fans like me have been waiting a long time for his solo debut, and he out performs on "Simplified"! He calls the style "new wave soul"...and it makes sense...you get his lovely Al Green/Curtis Mayfield soul voice. Almost no one in modern music has this classic, gorgeous sound anymore. Then the tracks are laced with a touch of 80's new wave. Believe it or not...IT WORKS! Not retro or cheesy in anyway. Beautiful songs, a cool hip/hop duet, some classic R&B, a couple songs reminded me of New Order/Depeche Mode/Level 42. Trippy guitars in "Your Name" sound like The Church. Those that appreciate diversity in a single album (like an old Beck album) will really dig this. My favorite CD in the last 3 years! Once the major labels discover this American gem, he'll be all over Rollingstone and MTV...but I found him first, so I dare to let the word out!!!

I honesty was not even aware this album existed until a couple days ago. The first time I heard Reggie Watts was on Conan. I was immediately very impressed at his creativity and skill. I loved 'Why S#!+ So Crazy,' and I couldn't help but imagine how he might sound if he did something that wasn't comedy or improvised. I did a search and turned up this album. It did not disappoint. If you like his other work, and you like music with soul, chances are you will like this. Check it out.

This has a early 90's feel to it. When music was just about being care free and put you in a "Chill-laxing" mood. Reggie Watts is more of comedian/comic music now, but this cd was put out when he was in his more serious R&B flow. Hot cd, a definite good pick up. Reminds me of a earlier Maxwell set, (and not just because of the hair)
