5.0 out of 5 stars The best R&B album in at least the last ten years! November 28, 2001
By face02
Format:Audio CD
This album did not sell all that well. This album's singles did not get all that much airplay on the radio. It is a crime that this album did not get the accolades it deserved. This came out in a time where P. Diddy (or Puff Daddy as he was called then) was at his peak, running the airwaves with music full of samples. If this had been released maybe a year later, it would have probably sold ten times what it did, and there would have been Grammy nominations all around. People were simply not ready to hear something of this quality. This is the most amazing contemporary R&B album around.
The group is basically a throw-back to the soul singers of the 50's and 60's. The harmonize as beautifully as The Temptations and the Four Tops, while providing a powerful emotion to the lead vocals not heard since Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye. They do not shy away from comparisons to the legends, they invite them by giving the listener acapella interludes to some of Cookes greatest hits in between their own.
I have always felt as though I was born in the wrong generation for my musical tastes. I prefer the old school soul music, such as Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Aretha Franklin, and others to the emotionless R&B vocalists that we are given today. This album was a dream come true for me.
Solo mixes that old school soul with new school R&B to provide a sound all their own. I have shown this album to many, many friends of all ages only to see their eyes light up, as if their music taste buds were awakened.
The album does not have any slow spots, or duds at all. This is an album that you can listen to all the way through. There are obviously those tracks that rise above the rest though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still awesome after 10 years March 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was purging my closets and cassette tapes ( I know I am dating myself) this past weekend and came across this album...I forgot how much I loved this album! I played it twice and sung every song like it was playing on the radio. I had to get me a copy from Amazon.. THIS IS A KEEPER .. REAL MUSIC THAT STANDS THE TEST OF TIME

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD February 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This cd is absolutely the best. I love all kinds of music including the old R&B and this really does it. These guys are really great. I think "A Change is Gonna Come" is the best.

What a GREAT voice......OUTSTANDING!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Talent.... January 3, 2004
By Tony
Format:Audio CD
Of all the years that I have been old enough to know what music was all about, there has always a performer or a group that comes about and has the touch but always just drop out of the limelight,some of them should have never been there from the begining.In this case,Solo has got the touch,talent,and the knowhow when it comes to music from the heart.......Too bad they are not doing their magic anymore.The old school public needs more talent like them..........

4.0 out of 5 stars Retro Music - Contemporary Sounds February 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
A bang-on solid cd which showcases a variety of styles. Highlights include "Heaven", a dreamy track with an almost Impressions feel which bubbles along sweetly and the 4 Tops sounding "Holdin' On" which is reminiscent of "Standing In The Shadows Of Love" but with a contemporary backdrop and a driving beat. These Sam Cooke influenced guys can sing. In the U.K. it's an uncovered gem. Buy it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Solo on Cooke May 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Its amzing! I just heard of 'Solo' this morning while sitting in my barber's chair in Maywood, Illinois. What caught my attention was their rendition of 'Change Gon' Come' by one of my distant cousins 'Sam Cooke'. It was one of the best re-recordings I have heard to date. Solo needs more exposure by the media. Especially since they keep the legacy of Sam Cooke contemporary.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD got me through college! January 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD my freshman year at school. That was 4 1/2 years ago and I still listen to it with regularity. Seriously, these cats can hum! I love all the tracks, but especially #6,#7,#11,#18. If you truly appreciate a fine voice, musical harmony and background vocals that don't quit, there's no way that you could be disappointed in this CD!
