5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice now has The Album to match., February 9, 2010
This review is from: Another Round (MP3 Music)
I've been a fan of the voice but not of the content. This has kept me from really enjoying Jaheim. I like sharing great artists with my kids and other like-minded people. The thug stuff is a big turn off for me. Therefore when I hear this type of stuff, I pretty much just dismiss it pretty quickly. I still give artists a chance to improve and mature. Some like Jamie Foxx and R. Kelly just seem to stagnate and pander to the lowest common denominator. So when I saw Jaheim had a new album I gave it a listen and soon after a purchase.

Zune Pass is your friend.
Jaheim has stepped out of the box and delivered something I have been waiting for. The cuts on this album remind me of Lamar from England who for some reason doesn't get released in the US. This is real modern R&B music made by a man with a classic R&B voice.

I can now put him in the category with Anthony Hamilton,Kenny Lattimore,Jacksoul,and Lemar who respect the legacy of R&B music,but at the same time keep it modern and fresh.

The Voice now has The Album to match.

I, too, have thought that Jaheim had one of the most incredible voices out there, but had to pick and choose what I downloaded because of the "thug" element. When I heard he had "confiscated" Luther Vandross' band, I was very hopeful that he would raise the level of his music beyond da club, da derogatory names for females, etc. I think he has come very close to maturing on this album. I purchased the entire album, and so far, so good.

Wonderful review. I purchased the CD after previewing a few of the tracks, and I totally agree! Wow, what a soothing, soulfull voice. Can't wait to get the CD! Thank you for the great review, seemed like you were speaking directly to me.

Ricky check out R. Kelly's "Love Letter". You just may find a matured R. Go to ITune to sample...their snippets are longer!
