The acclaimed vocalist's first studio release in ten years. Highlights include the first single & title track 'My Everything', a duet with Babyface, & her touching tribute to her husband & two sons 'The Men In My Life'.
In an era of fast-food divas and ready-made starlets, finding the genuine article is often as hard as finding a needle in a haystack. Anita Baker could not have picked a better time for her return to music. After a decade-long hiatus, the soulful songstress returns with her eagerly anticipated Blue Note debut, My Everything.
The 10-track disc doesn't disappoint. Lush, emotive, and gorgeous are a few words that come to mind when listening to the Toledo, OH native's album. Lead single "You're My Everything" opens the album with an infectiously smooth groove that reminiscent of her classics. The album also includes "You're My Everything Revisited," a jazzy interpolation of the aforementioned single. Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds joins Baker on "Like You Used to Do." The ballad, with its warm electric guitar-accented backdrop, evokes a classic R&B sound without dating itself. Other standouts include "I Can't Sleep," and the heavenly "Close Your Eyes."
If the album had any real flaws, it's that Baker's serene sound rarely wavers. Still, "My Everything" could serve as a tutorial to aspiring R&B singers on what it means to deliver music with style, class, and true artistry. --Rashaun Hall

When I listen to Anita Baker, she make me feel like there is nothing wrong with love.
I recommend this cd to women, because she sings about a man in all her songs.
So ladies if there is a special man in your life, or was in your, or you want in your life, then purchase this cd, kick back, and just let your mind go there.
"How Could You", and the cute: "Men In My Life". A Straight Jazz album would be reallllll nice....She's IS at the right label.
