I love Will Downing, I've grown old(er) listening to his class. This album however is nothing special. No tunes to make you listen again, just passing time with "muzak". Even the great Phil Perry is wasted. The only tunes I liked are the three re-done "oldies" and even these are not as good as the originals. Save your money till Sept09 and buy Mayer Hawthorne's CD instead............ You'll be glad you did.

Will Downing has come back with an album 0f 100% Soul, his voice is as powerful as ever, the emotion in his words really bring a touch of class, there are tracks here for a slow dance with that special person in your life, uptempo tracks to move to, and tracks that are ideal for those intimate times!!
Will has been producing classic soul for over 20 years, and this in my humble opinion is his most complete album to date, go on, buy it and own a piece of soul legend.

Will's romantic 'homage' to Old School Soul. For the hopelessly romantics. 16 Jun. 2009
By ST - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title may mislead his fans, since he sings and covers some classic songs, but the CD contains some good new, original stuff as well.
The Will Downing we all know has returned to where he started and where he belongs, giving audiences some very good music from his heart.
This is sultry soul, lounge style - an album from which characters in an early 1990s romantic comedy film could draw inspiration.
If you find this idea quite charming, then this album from the veteran American singer is for you.
It's suave, slightly cheesy and full, with more "I'm not your yesterday Baby, I'm your tomorrow" lyrics than you can shake a stick at.
It's hard to pick out any individual singles as they all fill a set format.
Will's lyrics aren't particularly on form, but this can be forgiven for those romantics out there.
He has gone back to his old school roots and brought back his signature sound and writing.
The album may remind you of a mix of Luther Vandross and Teddy Pendergrass, a lukewarm Barry White and a diluted Marvin Gaye on a recording that's smooth, passionate and emotive, but probably too much so...
No hip hop/Nu Soul diversions are allowed here.
This soul/jazzy album will appeal to his fans, and maybe convert some others as well, and of course anyone who likes jazzy, smooth vocals.
On "Classique" Will confirms that when it comes to romantic soul he has few peers.
You may like his covers of "I'm Gonna Love You A Little More Baby" and "Baby You're For Real", which Marvin wrote for The Originals and on which Will here duets with ex-Montclairs' member Phil Perry, who oversings here, going a little over the top.
Will has mixed his own compositions, the jazz tinged soulful ballads or mid tempo songs like "More Time", "Just Think About It", "Love Suggestions", "Ride", "I Won't Stop", and "Let's Take It Now" with the covers to really get you in the mood and to fuse a deep and soulfully sensual rack of tunes but sometimes it's too much.
We need to come up for air before drowning in a sea of conflicting emotions and, at times, of a rather boring and repetitive undertone.
It is the more uptempo "Something Special" that will be popular with the modern soul dancers.
Having said this, there's no mistaking his inimitable styling. Will is definitely a master of his art, and his two decades of promoting the many sides of R&B on a commercial front have earned him a well-deserved place with the "old school" artists
A blend of old school soul and jazzy vibes, this is a good album from a great artist, now thankfully recovered from his illness.
My favourite tracks: "Something Special", "I'm Gonna Love You A Little More Baby", "Baby I'm For Real".

Will's back...doing what he does best. 16 Jun. 2009
By Justo Roteta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's so good to have Will Downing give us such a great CD. His cover versions of The Originals' "Baby, I'm For Real" and Barry White's "I'm Gonna Love you just A Little Bit More, Babe" are beyond any reproach whatsoever and the original songs "I Won't Stop" and "Something Special" are pure butter. Hopefully, urban radio will give this CD much-deserved airplay as Will is most certainly one of today's best crooners and an artist who truly deserves greater exposure and recognition. This is romantic, heartfelt, emotional and soul-stirring music that will nourish your heart, soul and spirit. Enjoy!

Classique - a CLASSIC! 16 Jun. 2009
By Andre 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the real thing, believe me.
You want classic soul, a voice that makes your baby's heart melt along with yours - get this. Classic soul has never been better.
I was never a big fan of Will Downing. Don't get me wrong, this guy sure knows his stuff and made some fine albums over the years. But somehow they never stuck with me as albums. A song here and there, yes, a beautiful voice, great covers and originals but never an album that I l.o.v.e.d.
This - this is perfection. Silky soul of the highest order.
Will Downing has found his place alongside the likes of Teddy Pendergrass, maybe even a touch of Barry White.
The first song Ride made me think of the O'Jays - which in itself is saying enough, smooth as ooooooh.
If you like mid-tempo sexy grooves: put down the lights, make some Love Suggestions, cook Something Special, invite your lady, tell her I'm Gonna Love Just A Little Bit More Baby and enjoy a trip to heaven with Classique

Will Downing the Voice 16 Jun. 2009
By Kathleen Turner-oliver - Published on Amazon.com
All you need to know is that this is Will Downing doing what he does best. He is the voice of romance and sings songs that women what men to say to them.

Truly Classique...... 18 Jun. 2009
By Devine Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Will Downing is one of those premiere artists where you can't wait to listen his newest artistry. This piece of work reminds me so much of his 2003 release entitled "Emotions". I say this because this cd gives me the same good feeling that one did, lol. My absolutes favorite tracks off of this compliation would be "More Time" and "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More". Initally when I read the title "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More" I said to myself Will should have never touched a Barry White tune, (not to mention I've never cared for the song)so I just passed it up without a listen to. Just by chance I couldn't get to the cd quick enough before 2 minutes of this song began to play. After one listen I keep that song and "More Time" on heavy rotation in all my cd players in the house, lol. In a world where music gets lost in the shuffle of politics, sex, and power play it's good to know that there is a label that still provides people with good music such as Will's. This cd is a must buy. Now that's whassup!
