After recently obtaining a copy of the Craig David "Born To Do It" CD, I was absolutely blown away by the unique melodies that are produced on this album. Though his style is similar to Donnell Jones, R. Kelly, and Eric Benet, Craig David I believe leads the pack by offering the same beats as his American counterparts, but he also adds flavor to his album by adding instruments that don't make it sound like the same old R&B we keep hearing. If Craig keeps making tracks as good as the ones he currently produced, I think this boy will blow up on the international scene in no time. Like many others, I am trying to get word of his album to everyone I know here in Cali and hope that his success and music will be a strong presence in America in the very near future.

Okay, so people may not agree, but Craig David has done very well, especially for a debut! The song Rendevous (song 3) is great, as is Booty Man(song 9). A varying mix of music, which not a lot of artists do on one album, and there is not one bad song among them. This has been on my cd player, practically 24 hours a day, since i got it at 8am monday morning (thanks to amazon!). Listening to it now in fact! I must admit, when Rewind first came out i wasn't sure, but now i like it, and my fave has to be 7 days!
When is the new album out? okay i'm kidding, but when he said he was born to do it, he certainly was!
Deserves 6 stars out of 5!

.... America do this music much, much better than us, and so Craig uses these influences, and is the best thing to come out of the UK, we should be proud of such an artist, who incorporates our UK garage sound, and mixes it with US styles R&B, not bringing him down. The album does not have one bad track on the album, sure to pop fans this may not be the album they wanted, but Craig David really never aims at the British pop fan, he just recieved a lot of coverage which turned him into a pop icon. The people he aims at are the ones who would've bought the album wheter it was 'in' or not. Tracks like "Rendevous" can take the wind out of the sails of almost any american R&B artist, who all just drop a albums full of heavy bass beats with Hip Hop influances to cover, not comliment the vocals. Craig David can sing, can write songs and is from the UK, I just don't think some can handle us having a successful artist without talking about the US. To put it bluntly this album is quality through and through.

As I go to work each day, I start of by putting Craig Davids 'Born To Do It' on. It's new and yet very familiar sound just lifts you up. In a mix of accoustic instruments and the use of synthesisers, his voice weaves through it all like a butterfly, creating a very distinctive personal sound. His lyrics show that he is still a very young man, discovering the femalesex and enjoying the dating game. It makes me feel young as well and looking at the world as if I was his age again. I often find myself singing along his lyrics, dancing in my car, with not a care in the world. My favorites are "Fill Me In" because of the syncopic rythm, "Rendezvous" for the dreamy-story-telling-feel to it, "7 Days" its hot and funny all at the same time, "Walking Away" Craig's melangoly answer to the blues. Hope his next album comes out soon!

This album is a collaboration of smooth lyrics and slick instrumentals. It very much caters for an R'nB audience, and "Born to do it" definately has the flavours of US R'n'B, but with a lacing of UK garage sounds especially with the massive hit "Rewind", you can't help but feel proud that this boy is 'one of ours'!

Craig David has pulled off a stunna with his album, only 2 singles brought out, only 19 yrs of age and he makes an album which has stayed in the top 5, and will do for many more weeks. The tracks are both sing a long, dance music, and it is relaxing and soft. Craig David has a brilliant voice, my favourite tracks are obviously his brought out singles. It is one of those albums which you can press play and listen to all the way through, all the tracks are top. The ones that stand out and shine is Can't be messin' around (2), Walking Away (7) and The Booty Man (9) This is a five star album and Craig David has to be one of the best individual singers. Rewind (12) the last track, I wasn't too keen on it when it was released, but the remix is good. You really can focus on what a good track Fill Me In is, it kick starts the album, and keeps you gripped for the rest.

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.
