An excellent album.
Craig David surprised us all with his individual blend of garage and pop with Re-Rewind last December, and to capitalise his popularity, here comes his debut album, Born To Do It.
We had a taster of the album with Fill Me In and Seven Days but the new songs are at least as rich and catchy. From the burning melody of track two, to the friday vibe infused track Friday Night, this is a varied yet quality collection of rap/pop/ballad, with not too much of any one.
Particularly good songs include Last Night, Walking Away, and Once in My Life.
But Craig finishes with a tribute to the song that propelled him to his current fame, a funky remix of Re-Rewind. At the close, the words 'Cool, Fine, Done, Finished' are said, but if this superb album is anything to go by, I think Craig David is nowhere near finished yet.
