First, the poster named Sunshine hit the nail on the head in describing this masterpiece. This has to be one of the most comprehensive CDs that I've listened to in a long time. Howard hit a homerun, scored a touchdown, and won a championship with this album. I purchased it the day after it came out and have been listening to it everyday since. I also have it in my MP3/4 player.

It is so hard to narrow down my favorites, but I will go with "If Only", "To Please U", "Can U Feel Me", "Is This True Love", "I Wanna Know", "How Do I Love You". The whole CD is beautiful. I also love how he gives glory and how he, in a mature way, sings about love, because love is where it's at. He also did a nice rendition with Gerald Albright on "Imagine". I just cannot stop gushing over this CD. It is modern, but signature Howard Hewett and the vocals are still impeccable.

I am a huge fan of Howard Hewitt's from back in the Shalimar days as well, but more specifically, when he ventured out on his own. This is one singer that understands his emotional, feminine side, and can relate to women in a profound way with the words to his songs.

My fave song on his new CD, If Only, is "To Please U". We all remember back in the day when true love songs actually were meaningful - well, this is Howard Hewitt at his best. What saddens me is that I haven't heard this CD (or even Rick James' new CD, released around the same time), on local radio stations. It is sad that the balladeers of the 70's and 80's aren't recaptured in today's music. We need the spiritual message and spreading Love! This is why I will always be a fan of "Old School Music". That is where it was at!

There are several other songs that I just love on his new CD, "Is this True Love?" and "Can U feel me?". If you are a true Howard Hewitt fan, you will pick up this CD now! He is also on Rick James' new CD, Deeper Still, "Do you Wanna Play?". Amazon had a deal a few weeks ago on both CD's. Because of the samples and reviews, I went and bought both CD's. Love them! If you are a true fan and love that soulful sound unique to Howard Hewitt, pick up his new CD today, "If Only".

Enjoy!

I have always been a huge fan of Howard Hewitt. He put the R (riveting) into R&B. This is a phenomenal CD. I will purchase several more copies to send to friends since it is very hard to purchase in the stores!!!! Thanks for advising me of this CD. Kudos!!!

To be honest with you I've been listening to music since I can remember and I truly don't know if I've heard a voice like his, this man can flat out sing, he takes a ballard to another level completely and the track To Please You man I can't play it once I keep rewinding and rewinding it, just listen to the lyrics I mean closely and tell me this isn't the best Love song you ever heard. Wow

Howard Hewitt has always been one of my favorite r & b singers. Since the days of Shalamar, he has had staying power when most of the singers that were around during the same time period have vanished. He has an incredibly, beautiful voice. This album just reminds his true fans how truly gifted he is. If you don't have this album, I hope you get it.

howard's voice is as brilliant as ever -- clear and strong. the musical arrangements are plush and rich like the songs of old (none of that sampling here). and his songs will set the tone for love on any romantic night. it's a must-have for dedicated fans and newcomers.
