5.0 out of 5 stars Real Soulful!!!! June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Charles Haynes, Meshell Ndegeocello, Robert Glasper, and Myron clowned on this album. You can tell they were hitting everything live, without tracking. I love this album. Myron has grown so much from the Destiny album. This album is good like gumbo...different styles infused to one album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Artistry December 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is an EXCELLENT body of work. I had never heard of this artist before purchasing this cd out of curiosity. After listening to it, I was hooked and couldn't wait to buy the others (I only found "Destiny" and "Free"). Although, "Destiny" was a nice commercial cd, "Free" and this cd shows a maturity of musical style and unique artistry development which is very impressive and inspirational. It is very refreshing listening to songs which talks about more than heartbreak and the bedroom, and musicianship being represented. I hope to hear from Myron again soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great album September 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album was still a definitive and good album IMO. This was Myron's FOURTH Album not THIRD as previously stated. He did try something new and although i do miss the classic sound of "Destiny" this album still has an original sound of his own and is still most definitely a MUST HAVE to add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music Music Music at it's Best July 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is an INCREDIBLE album. Full of pure musical moments. A live collaboration between Myron and incredible musicians Meshell Ndegeocello and Robert Glasper. From the first few seconds of "Star" it reminded me of the energy of early Earth, Wind & Fire and Chaka Khan. Then some Beatles like ballads like "That's How I Know" and "Beautiful Love" just flow effortlessly. Funky tracks like "Ball Of Clay" and "Best Is Yet To Come" feature nasty baselines laid down by the visionary Meshell Ndegeocello.

Myron uses his voice like an instrument with the arrangements and musicality going far beyond stereotype genres of R&B, Jazz, Soul. This plays like a real album of music which draws you in, takes you on a ride and when it's done you want to put it back on and listen from the top. There is not much info on this artist or album but i did get a couple of replies from people saying this & other Myron albums are going to be released in the US later this year. I wish i knew so i wouldn't have gotten the import $$$ version ! Myron this album is INCREDIBLE.

Myron Davis's third album. 08/05/02. 10 years passed since his mainstream debut cd "DESTINY" was released under major Island label. The huge term, the huge difference between these albums. So, let's begin..
First of all i want to say that Myron has completely changed his own manner and even style of music. If on the first cd it was qualitative urban r&b then on the third one you will hear strange "jazzy" neo-soul with unusual arrangements. The main minus of "The Works" is.... - the fact that Myron almost does not SING here, he just hardly audibly sings to himself under his nose. Sometimes he rappin'(like in "Ball Of Clay"). You can't get enough of Myron's voice in terms of VOCAL. He does not use his remarkable high tenor at all. This is the reason why all 9 song seems not very emotional and expressive.
Secondly, live instruments were used strongly on this album, but the sound is worse then unlive arrangements on "Destiny" cd. I'd prefer to hear "classic" urban Myron with programmed, but beautiful jams like "Give My All To You" or "Heavenly Girl". I miss commercial mainstream 90's Myron here!
Thirdly Myron use same typical sounds in the instrumentation of some songs and the listener can get tired of them. ("Best Is Yet To Come", "No More War")
Fourthly it is the melodies. very abstract and uninteresting. I can't catch the mood with this kind of music!
The album seems some kind of experiment, than author's music. Far-fetched, deliberately complicated, too intricate and abstract album.
Myron, please come back with your oldfashioned 90's urban sweet soul music! We are still waitin'
