This is one of the only albums in my collection that I listen to from start to finish every time I listen to it. Soul Searching is one of those albums that appeals to everyone, no matter what style you like. It's mellow R&B, funk, rock, all ready for listening. A must have for anyone's collection.

When I bought this album, I already had a gut feeling that I would be listening to something special. Well that's exactly what I expected upon hearing it. From the sweeping Overture to the closing Digging Deeper finale, the musical scope of this album is something that the band themselves must've been waiting for a good while to do. There are some familiar funky, self-conscious tunes like Love Your Life and the title track as well as some intimate, soulful laments such as A Love Of Your Own and Would You Stay. There's even an intense Latin-flavored track in Queen Of My Soul that turns out to be a real treat for genuine music lovers. I honestly don't think the level of inspired playing that the band had throughout this album can be found on any of their other releases, even the ones that are pretty decent in their own right. This one's almost surely a keeper and a must-have for AWB followers.

that's o.k., give this classic just 2 minutes of your time& you're hooked. every song on this jewel is timeless and can fit into almost any venue.if you like horns(i.e. tower of power/e.w.f.)and miss the magic of harmonizing winds,this is a treat!don't be mislead, it's not just a instrument fest,these boys can "sang"! there are hints of style that resembles "silk degrees" by boz scaggs! 'nuff said, check it out .this one's a no brainer!

THIS cd (lp when I first bought it!) FINALLY pulled my coattails to AWB.
Before this recording, I felt AWB was a "2nd division" funk aggregate, but from the introductory "Overture", I *HEARD* that these guys were finally on to a mini-funk masterpiece.
For my tastes, their pseudo-JBs workouts like "Cut The Cake" & "Pickin Up The Pieces" didnt move me too much, but the musics here,( ESPECIALLY the beautiful emotive ballad, "A LOVE OF YOURE OWN", and the jazzy "Soul Searchin'" and "Sunny Days") really struck a chord in me.
I decided to buy the cd-- my lp is shot-- and as I recently reviewed a Leon Ware cd on Amazon, I got to thinkin..... that the AWB boys appear a bit influenced by him also, as well as the other obvious influences in their "blue-eyed soul" style.
The only real "criticism" I have for this recording (and actually something that bothered me in general about the AWB) -- the group has NO distinguishable soloist of much facility.
I once read guitarist Alan Gorrie mention the group can "play be-bop" , but I hear NO connection in his guitar style/technique that validates his claim.
I WISH HE COULD "PLAY BE-BOP", such as Sugarfoot from the Ohio Players did/does.
Managgia, for my taste HE (Sugar) was the BADDEST guitar player on the "R&B" circuit --- the classic solo on "Sweet Sticky Thang" substantiates that , I believe.
I wish AWB had a little more "chops" in the solo department, this is all I am saying!
I do enjoy the "push it to the limits" singing stlye of AWB, their falsettos just barely "make it", it's part of the group's charm, hehehe!

The groups FOURTH album is arguably the best.(Personally I probably being one of their biggest fans love them all). Everthing on side one has to be gold or even platinum and side two isn't shabby either. Let's go collectors hurry up.

This is a very compelling CD that challenges its listeners to od some major soul searching. In addition, all of the song revert back to the title of the album. It's a really good pick!

These guys are anything but average, and this album proves it. They finally came into their own with this album. There earlier stuff seemed like they didn't know what they wanted to sound like but it's clear after this album. From the hit slow jam "A love of your own" to subtle funk of "I'm the one" they found the right groove. If you want to start your collection of AWB then start with this album.

This is, in my opinion, the best AWB production. Good listening from beginning to end. A must have for avid AWB fans.
