Editorial Reviews

Multi-award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, businessman, philanthropist and exercise enthusiast are descriptions that only skin the surface of Q Parker, one of the co-founders of the award-winning, multi-platinum selling group 112.

Now preparing to launch his solo project The MANual, Q comes strong with the singles "Show You How" and "Yes" refreshing the memories of his fans and surprising the new converts with his silky smooth vocals plus camera shutter friendly good looks.

Q. Parker hits with his debut solo album, and it definitely delivers. If you're a fan of 112 chances are you'll enjoy this effort. Q does some things on this album that separates him on his own as a solo artist, but he doesn't stray so far that it's unrecognizable as a 112 fan. The good of this album is that it's consistent. Pretty much every song besides a couple are good or great in my opinion. The stand outs to me are "Yes," "60 Seconds," "How I Love You," and Q's version of "Cupid." I find myself listening to those more than the others, but the others are pretty good as well.

If there is a knock for this album it is that it lacks a few power songs that make you play them over and over. If you're a long time 112 fan like I am then you remember that their albums had songs that you straight up listen to over and over and fall in love with. Q sang on many of those songs, and it's a little sad that there aren't some statement songs such as "Now That We're Done" or "Smile" from 112.

Now that is a minor knock. It's hard to compare 112 to Q because that's like comparing the Avengers to Captain America. It's unfair how much talent 112 had together, so I'm not knocking Q at all. His solo effort is very good, and it's one of the most consistent R&B albums of the past few years. The album doesn't slow up because from the intro to the end it's the same quality all the way through. It starts off good and stays that way instead of having one strong area and then falling into ill advised territory. What you hear on the radio in his two singles is what you're going to get. Q. has done a very good job of making sure you're satisfied with this album. Even though this is his debut a solo album you can tell that he's a seasoned vet. I can't imagine too many R&B fans not being pleased with this. It's hard to dislike something well rounded as The MANual.

Man, Q could have went solo a long time ago! With him branching out on his own, he really showcases his vocal ability! I keep this album on repeat. Real R&B!

If you love 112, then you'll love this album. It's classic 112 from Q's point-of-view. Great lyrics, nice production, smooth vocals, and you can't forget that he kept the tradition going and got Faith on the album. That's the recipe for success!

Q, IT'S YOUR TIME!

Q Parker, after listening to the album, I must say that the record was above average. I was not impressed with all of the songs on the album however he has a great vocal. In my opinion the best song on the album is the duet that kicks the album off. At times I heard too much 112 over-tunes. I seriously doubt that the album will do well simply because of the promotion and R&B dark ages. Right now record labels are just trying to keep music on shelves instead of allowing the world to hear it. As far as the album, it is a classic but so was Slim's first album and now he's doing mix tapes! Q good luck!
