I have read some pretty patronisisng reviews of this album in "some" of the British Press, sneering over their intelectual arrogance at the fact that this record is deeply influenced by the soul sound of the 60's and early 70's.

THAT'S A BAD THING? No, no it isn't!!! Eli and his amazing tight band The True Loves have produced yet another feel good, foot stomping, straight from the heart soul album. ALL music is derivitive in some way, there are only so many chords you can play, so if you are gonna draw influence from anywhere, why not the uplifting honesty and soaring emotion of the "real" soul of Stax etc., that filled the airwaves with joy in the 60s and 70s?

Eli is singing a style of music that has always been graced by amazing singers, such as Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett et al, and the fact that he will face comparison with those legends makes him a very brave man to tackle this style of music in his own original songs. And boy, does he pull it off. The voice is great, whether he is tenderley whispering his thoughts on keeping a steady happy relationship in "Pick Your Battles", or when he fully rips it up with a very impressive soul scream reminiscent of James Brown on the final track "Explosion".

Stand outs for me would be "Just Like Me", "I Found You Out", "Time Will Tell" and the single "Come And Get It".

He makes you feel good, he makes you dance, he takes you back to a time when music was "home-made" and from the heart. Go and see him live and you will be completely blown away!

I hope this is the start of a massive soul revival, and that in the years to come, Eli is seen as a standard bearer of the rebirth of soul!

I agree that this is a smoother record than "Roll With You" but for me this is very much a good thing - I think that both Eli and the band sound less shrill and more relaxed and self-assured, which gives a much more authentic sound. Mike Elizondo, who has previously worked with Dr. Dre, Eminem and 50 Cent, seems an odd choice as producer but I think he does an excellent job and resists the temptation to add any hip-hop/rap stylings. I also found the songs here more original than the 60s soul clones on "Roll With You". I particularly liked the slow soul ballad "Time Will Tell", the rocking "Tell Me What I Wanna Hear" and the Soul Stirrers-style gospel of 'You Can Run On'. Eli and the band also tackle smooth Motown northern soul, southern Stax-style soul and on the closer "Explosion" James Brown-style funk.

This is a really good album that has fully realised the potential of "Roll With You".

When I first heard Eli Reed on the radio, I thought I was listening to an 'oldie' from my 1960s soul days, when I listened to nothing but Motown, Stax and Atlantic etc following such artistes as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, James Carr plus many others. So I was surprised, when I researched, to find that Eli Reed is a modern noughties boy, brought up on Gospel Music like the greats of the past.If you love your soul and Motown, you'll love this CD especially the tracks 'Come and Get It', 'Young Girl' and 'Name Calling'. Honestly, you'll think you're listening to someone from that marvellous decade that I and others of my generation were lucky enough to experience. The price is good too!

I heard 'Come and Get it' from a compilation CD and knew that I had to investigate further.

Eli has a superb voice number one, back in the traditions of Al Green, Percy Sledge and dare I say it the Young Stevie Wonder. Tied up with the better songs on this album it makes for a winning combination that's pretty much irresistable.

My only question is its longevity. I've been through the album 5 times or so now and the stand out tracks really are crackers ( I wont name them to annoy those who'd only take the odd number as downloads ) but for me there are one or two fillers that just don't quite hack it.

But, having said that overall it is a very satisfying and genuinely exciting listen that doesn't ape the 60's soul sounds of Motown and Philly, but adds a bit of naughties magic.

Definitely a worthy purchase and a lovely compliment to any music lovers collection.

The current reviews pretty well some up the vibe here but I felt compelled to write a review because this is so damn good! The music snobs amongst you will discard this as American white boy trying to cash in on the current soul revival vibe a la Whitehouse et al. This would be a sad mistake because Mr.Reed has a sound pedigree in the old style RnB/Soul revival movement which goes back a long way.Two previous independant album releases evidence this fact.
Mr.Reed is blessed with a fine soul singing voice which is backed up with a sound understanding of soul music which he demonstrates by doing DJ sets around the US spinning rare soul/funk records.Match this with some great musicians and you have got a great album.In particular the horn section really could be straight out of Stax or Muscle Sholes;they are that great! A nice collection of raw soul combined with a bit of Doo Wop, Gospel and Blues styles add to the variety of tracks.Heart felt lyrics will always be crucial in soul music and Mr.Reed tears out his heart and lays it on the line throughout.
Immediate stand out tracks for me are the sixties pop like 'Name Calling' and the great old style soul 'Pick A Number' which are the potential 'hits' if this can get any airplay; which I doubt.If you like Sam,Otis or Wilson,you really should enjoy this labour of retro soul love. A fine job by Producer Mike Elizondo who really has nailed it!
