I think those that were disappointed by this c.d. should really give it a chance. Yes, he may have taken the beats from another song, but come on his voice alone makes the c.d. worth the money! No one is perfect and I haven't seen a male R&B male compare to Mr. McKnight yet (him and R. Kelly). Even R. Kelly has taken some beats and made it sound wonders! I loved this c.d. not only because of the love ballads, but because Mr. Knight tried something different. He not only got with Mase on this album, but he went back with a wonderful spritual called When The Chariots Come that will bring you to tears ( I know it did for me).When your an artists you can't just stick to one thing all the time, like humans (which he is, lets not forget)can't stick to the same t.v. show or cereal everyday. We're forgetting everyone isn't perfect and that's why they call it being different, changing the pace, or coloring outside the lines. I would recommend this c.d. to all you Brian McKnight fans and those who haven't heard one of his c.d's, because you won't be let down!
