If Eric Benet’s career can be defined by anything, it’s the purity of emotion. He’s consistently made music that speaks to love and speaks from the soul and on Lost In Time he does it once again. Featuring duets with Faith Evans, Chrisette Michele, Ledisi and the O’Jays Eddie Levert, Lost In Time is at once a sumptuous homage to and an expansion of the sweet soul of the ...

Editorial Reviews

With one of the most beloved voices in music, GRAMMY nominated R&B icon Eric Benet
will release his 6th album, aptly entitled THE ONE. Featuring the fi rst
single, Real Love, which has become a Top 5 Urban AC smash, THE ONE marks a
moment of positive transition in his life and lyrically speaks to the many new beginnings
developing in his career and family including the recent marriage to Manuela
Testolini and the birth of his second daughter in December of 2011. THE ONE will
also be the fi rst album released on Benet s newly formed record label Jordan House
Records, in partnership with EMI. As Benet grew up in Milwaukee in the 1970s at
the time one of the most segregated parts of the US music was a huge part of his
family home, the Jordan house. At the Jordan house you were guaranteed to hear
singing, different instruments being played, and a musical celebration happening every
time you visited. Music was truly woven into the fabric of his upbringing. He describes
THE ONE as a very contemporary approach to old-school songwriting integrity and
will include with Benet s signature mid-70s soul groove, a variety of instruments from
strings to horns, a lullaby for his new baby girl, a confirmed duet with his first daughter
India Benet, and more special guests including the unexpected Lil Wayne, who has
many times been quoted in the press as a huge Benet fan. To his thousands of fans who
have followed Eric Benet over the years, this album will truly be THE ONE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric has got his groove back December 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think this album is great .Love love love it. With this album Eric has proved that he can really be considered one of the best R and B artists of today. While his previous two albums were rather disappointing in my opinion ,this album reminds me of the old Eric whose music I fell in love with.Unlike "Hurricane " which I thought had a somewhat sad tone ,on "The One " Eric sounds happy again.My favourite track is certainly "Harriet Jones".You won't be disappointed if you buy this album.I listen to this album from beginning to end and I have yet to hear a track that I don't like.If you are a Eric fan or value good music especially R and B music with a modern jazz vibe this album is a must have!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Eric Benet gets back to basics on "The One" June 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Although it's hard to fathom, but Eric Benet has been in the business for two decades. He originally got his start by singing with his sister Lisa Jordan in a duo called Benet. When that project didn't go anywhere, Eric went on to do other things. He lended his talents as a background singer on Michael Franks' 1993 album "Dragonfly Summer", which lead to him signing with Franks' label Warner Bros. Records. While recording his debut, he endured the tragedy of his girlfriend dying in a car accident. In 1996, he released his debut "True To Myself", which featured the quiet storm favorites "Let's Stay Together" and "Femininity". Three years later, he issued his most successful album to date "A Day In The Life". It spawned two hits- the Toto remake "Georgy Porgy" and the Tamia duet "Spend My Life With You". While he was recording his next album, his career suffered another setback: His album "Better And Better" ended up being shelved. In its place, he released "Hurricane", an album that was mostly produced by soft rock mavens David Foster and Walter Afanasieff. He got back on track with 2008's "Love & Life" and released what came to be his final recording for Warner Bros., 2010's "Lost In Time".

In 2012, Eric Benet released his latest recording "The One". It's his first album for the EMI Records label who distributes his imprint Jordan House. On this album, he reunites with his longtime producers Demonte Posey and George Nash, Jr.- the same producers behind "True To Myself", "Love & Life", "Lost In Time" and roughly half of "A Day In The Life". He starts the album off with the uptempo "Harriet Jones", where he pines for the return of a lost love. He channels the sound of Maze featuring Frankie Beverly on the ballad "News For You" and celebrates the concept of finding happiness on "Real Love".

3.0 out of 5 stars Review June 5, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Eric Benet 6th studio project "The One" is a 70's soul flashback for at least the first half of the project. the other half he mixes it up with styles like Reggae, Jazz, Soft Pop & Country & Western so if you like diversity then you will love this project.

My personal favorites are "Real Love", "Runnin", "Waitin" & "News For You" but I also like "Muzik" feat. daughter India Benet. "Redbone Girl" f/ Lil Wayne how the music started with a Al Green feel then switched to "The Motto" beat when Lil' Wayne rapped. The jazz laced "Come Together" which put me in the mood of something Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds would do and "Here in My Arms" (Lucia's Lullaby) is a heartfelt dedication to his newborn daughter Lucia Bella.

Benet married Prince's ex-wife, Manuela Testolini, who gave birth on December 21, 2011.

Actually I like 10 out of the 13 songs. "Gonna Be My Girl" & "Lay It Down" just didn't captivate me and the bonus track "Come Home to Me" is cool if you like Country but unfortunately I just can't get into Country & Western.
I wished he would have just kept it old school throughout the whole project.

Overall "The One" is a nice project for those 30 and up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eric is perfecting his craft April 26, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Eric Benet has continually shown his growth as a singer, song writer. This effort is no different, from the radio appeal of "Harriet Jones" to the smooth falsetto vocals on the love ballad "Real Love" this is Eric in his element. Old fans and those who have recently discovered Eric Benet will not be disappointed with this tightly crafted collection of songs.
