Vintage Keith Sweat
, November 17, 2011
This review is from: Til The Morning (Audio CD)
Keith Sweat has been in the game at least commercially for just about 25 years. When he took a break back in the early 2000's I thought Keith would never come back. As a follower of my favorite artists, I was pleasantly surprised when he came back with the album Just Me which I absolutely love. Fast forward to 2010 and Ridin Solo was released and I like many others, although happy for a new release, felt something was missing. Now in 2011 Keith comes back with Til The Morning a collection of songs that recaptures what Keith Sweat stands for which is grown and sexy R&B music. Keith readily acknowledges staying true to himself and only ventures into new territory musically occasionally which to us Keith Sweat fans that is just fine.
Til the Morning offers some vintage Keith Sweat sounding songs that in my opinion can rival his second album "I'll give all my love to you". As Keith has acknowledged nothing will ever compare to "Make it Last Forever" but this collection is just as good as some of Keith's best hits. Notable songs on this collection is "Knew it all along" with Johnny Gill and adlibs by Gerald Levert or Eddie Levert depending on how you hear the adlibs. A great song that truly shows the magic of LSG. "High as the sun" a sexy mood maker if there ever was one. "Make you say oooh" which is another vintage sounding Sweat song. One of my favorites that I can't get out of my head is "Open Invitation", there is something about the melody that takes me back to early Keith Sweat. "My Valentine" is another good song with Coko from SWV.
Unlike Ridin Solo, Keith stays away from the auto tune which is a good thing with the exception of the Tpain assisted to the middle. An ok track, but whatever this auto tune is of today it doesn't sound like auto tune of yesteryear. Keith needs T. Riley for that. Overall an excellent vintage Sweat album that reminds everyone that Keith isn't going anywhere anytime soon. And for us fans who grew up on Keith Sweat we are grateful for that. By the way, get the Best Buy version for 3 extra bonus track well worth the purchase.
