I could make love to this album, but I could also just throw it on with my students in the classroom...and their like "is that Glenn Lewis? I like him."

This album exceeded my expectations for Lewis's oft-pushed back debut, and my expectations were extremely high. The single, "Don't You Forget It", was so super-hot and intricately arranged that I just knew the full-length would be great. And it is, period.
The guy has Stevie Wonder's vocal chords, no doubt, but takes them in some original corners and gives us a 100% solid record that you imagine Stevie himself might have put out if he were still the Stevie we knew and loved 15 years ago. Don't let the comparisons fool you, though: Lewis is all himself, and the songs (produced by the team that gave us the great Jill Scott records throughout) are a testimony to his values and the age in which he exists. His songs are current and his music incredibly played and tightened.
To top it off, he likes to take his songs' stories (the fact that he has stories at all instead of the regular chant-smashing, party-calling we've been subjected to lately is refreshing in and of itself) and twist them a bit, not ending up where you think the tone or the first lyric might suggest. Simply put, it's the most completey intelligent R&B record to come down the pike in two years, and is the record - R&B or otherwise - to beat this year.

I first heard "Don't You Forget It" on a CD that I had purchased called "Red Star Sounds Volume 1: Soul Searching". The CD featured various songs that included Jill Scott's "Long Walk" (Remix), India Arie's "Butterfly" and Erykah Badu's "Today". For some reason, even with the well known artists on the CD, "Don't You Forget It" stood out amongst the songs. I caught the video on BET's "Midnight Love" and I knew that once his CD came out I would definitely purchase it. "World Outside My Window" is an excellent debut CD from the artist from Canada. You will never be able to classify Glenn Lewis as a one hit wonder. The production is handled by Andre Harris and Vidal Davis from A Touch Of Jazz Productions. The same people that were behind Jill Scott's and Musiq Soulchild's debut CDs. As far as Glenn Lewis' voice is concerned, he sounds very similar to Stevie Wonder, and that is clearly the case on several songs on this CD. However, that does not take anything away from the quality of music and songs that we are presented with on "World Outside My Window". Continuing in the footsteps of the growing roster of Neo Soul artists like Maxwell, D'Angelo, Angie Stone, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Amel Larrieux, Jazzyfatnastees, Musiq Soulchild and Jaguar Wright, Glenn Lewis demonstrates that he belongs in this category. On "Simple Things", Glenn Lewis lets us know about how we should appreciate just being able to be involved in everyday life and not taking things for grantite, on "Lonely", Glenn talks about a woman that he was involved with and had a friendship with that decides to leave him.Read more ›

This brotha has a melodic flow that makes his album amazing. It captivates you and puts you in a relaxed mood that makes things OK. It is so nice to hear positive lyrics in this day in age. I recommend everyone purchase this, because this is definitely the start of something wonderful.

Glenn Lewis has "it": the mystical qualities that lead to staying power in this business: Unique presence. Vocal skills. Writing talent. World Outside My Window is a strong album for this newcomer. The smash single "Don't You Forget It" was the song/video that captured our interest & the rest of this album keeps us listening.
Favorite tracks - "Simple Things" - like the title suggests, the song beautifies things we often take for granted in life.
"Lonely" - funky midtempo with head-bobbing percussion and a universal message we all can relate to ("if its game you want then you know i came to play")
"take me" - This song tells a story that the listener can actually visualize as he sings. The lyrics are haunting & moving, the chorus is gorgeous.
"one more day" - head bobbin' uptempo that has a musiq soulchild feel to it.
"Take You High" - soft, sensual mid-tempo with a mellow flow and sweet chorus.
"This Love" - one of several tracks that the STEVIE comparison comes into play.
Along with story-telling lyrics, the string arrangements laced throughout WOMW add a surreal, relaxing vibe to the album.
BUT...
Glenn Lewis sounds so much like Stevie that one has to keep remembering it is not "Fingertips" himself. (ie: "Sorry" and "Never too Late") I honestly don't know if that is a good or bad thing. The bridge of "Don't U Forget It" illustrates this clearly. This is why I rate WOMW 4 stars. Hopefully future projects will bring more of Glenn's own essence into the mix. Constant comparisons to the legendary Wonder may prove too distracting.
WOMY is a great album, however and a must-have for all lovers of true soul music. Get your copy now. Peace. CLB.
