4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely soulful album 1 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Carl Thomas is an R&B singer who takes Stevie Wonder's inflections and Luther Vandross' ability to make any slow song into a love song, and applies them to his music. His fluttery vocals are the icing on the cake of his songs. Simple beats and smooth musical backing remove him from the torn-between-R&B-and-hip-hop crowd and leave him among those whose ballads are purely soulful. Some of the outstanding tracks are "Emotional", "I wish", My Valentine", "Hey Now", "Come to Me",....Even the intro is beautiful. This CD is a must buy and I for one am glad I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 29 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I got this album after hearing carl thomas's duet with lil mo (players not the game) and i remarked at his lovely deep soulful vocals. However alot of the tracks on this album dissapointed me.
Valentine struck me as a very "dark" song, and a few other songs are very similar.
However the album is still worth listening to, as he does indeed have a huge potential talent.. Just be warned you may want to skip some tracks!

5.0 out of 5 stars CARL TAKES IT BACK TO THE OLD SCHOOL 20 April 2000
By Tony_Tone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Bad Boy strikes again seems like they are on the right track in gaining crediablity once again with the release of Black Rob's Life Story .. Now the release Carl Thomas debut Emotional.. So far this year in R n b you might have a cd that you have to continue hittin the fast forward button . There are only two c.d's so far this year you dont have to do it Joe's My Name Is JOE and Carl Thomas Emotional
Carl Thomas has an exceptional vocalist you have heard him on other Bad Boys artist release.. Now he finally steps out on his own with an cd that is sentinemental, Soulful... Carl's style will remind you of the early 70's- mid 70's .. The days when the topic was true love he sings about..
If there is a flaw with this cd it's some of the production but over all .. Majority of the songs here will make you forget some of it's flaws.. This still deserves 5 stars..
Stand out tracks
I Wish
Cold Cold World
Summer Rain
Lady Lay Your Body
Special Lady
If you like taste of old-school romantic soul this is the cd for you.. This brother going to be around for sometime to come..

5.0 out of 5 stars ...... A very "Emotional" debut 24 April 2000
By J. Highsmith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Can Puff Daddy actually have a chance to "Shyne" again? That is the question a lot of people are asking. Well, if Black Rob's "Life Story" and Carl Thomas's "Emotional" are a preview of things to come, then Puffy might just get a chance to laugh again. On "Emotional" you can tell that Carl Thomas is a good writer and you can also tell that he's been through a lot of the things that are on this CD. "Emotional" is a throwback to what today's r&b artists have to offer. This is what separates Carl Thomas' debut from most other r&b acts. The highlights of this CD are the 1st single "I Wish", "Emotional", "My Valentine", Lady Lay Your Body" and "Hey Now". The whole CD can be played in its entirety so you don't have to worry about a fast forward button. After hearing this CD you'll wonder why Carl Thomas didn't come out with an album any sooner. This CD, as well as, Joe's "My Name Is Joe" are the best r&b CDs out right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars *GOOD LAWD! Where has he been hiding?* 19 April 2000
By Clarissa Bolding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Now u know something's good, when you stay up past midnight with the headphones on listenin' and hitting the repeat button!
I am so impressed by this man's vocal stylings; words can not express. This debut is a must have! I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of "Emotional" because the first single and video really pulled me in. The more I delved into the other songs, the more I enjoyed it. The lyrics are ocean deep and he spans all the emotions of being in love. These are serious love songs for those who know and appreciate real masters of their crafts.
The performance piece by Malik Yusef was a wonderful and unique surprise. Very deep! I loved that .
Carl Thomas has a voice that is truly one of a kind. To even try to compare him to an artist out today would be an insult to him and his listeners.
Exceptional tracks: "My Valentine" "Hey Now" "Lady Lay Your Body Down" "You Aint Right" "Giving You All My Love" and of course "I Wish". Actually they are ALL great!
I have to say that I wished the songs were longer. Just when they get good, the fade comes. (ie: "My Valentine" & "I Wish") When real SANGIN'is involved, ya just don't want the song to end.
Carl. You are truly blessed with a voice sent from God. Keep singing & continued success. You have definitely made and "Emotional" impact on the industry and a supporter out of me. CLB.

4.0 out of 5 stars Carl Thomas "Emotional" is TIGHT! 10 May 2000
By Kenneth M. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I disagree with Rickey Wright. The BEST part of this album is that Puffy is nowhere on there. This CD is definitely for cats who like to listen to good music without all the overdone machismo ("baby, I can do this and that...") and unneccesary rap(pers). He speaks words a man or woman in touch with their "emotions" could only understand. If all you like is sex-you-up, rub-you-down, kick-you-out, pimp tunes, you may be dissapointed. I've listened to this CD about 25 times and I haven't grown tired yet. I bought David Hollister's "Ghetto Hymns" shortly afterwards and didn't get that same feeling I got after hearing "Emotional".
From a musician stand point, his voice, his falsettos and the background vocals all go together with the music. Even though the samples could have been more HIDDEN, he still comes off tight over the beats. The Biggie beat in "Woke Up..." kinda fooled me the first few listens.
I'll admit I know Carl Thomas through a family member so you know I had to buy the album just see what he sounded like and to listen to it with a very critical ear ...and I haven't been disappointed yet.
If you don't have it, try it and buy it. If you have it, enjoy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotional is what u will be after this..new R+B from BadBoy! 24 April 2000
By I.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This new one from Badboy is tight and pushing this up by a month was no mistake. Poeple might recognize a lot of beats and tunes here because some of them are hooks from old songs(as we know badboy for doing). Overall it's half and half between old and new beats and sounds. The ones that he re-did have a new sound or beat to it so it sounds almost like a diferent song. Let me break down the cd for u: Tracks: 1- This track is the gospel intro where he sings thanks to god. Good intro. He is like the male version of faith evans
2- Emotional is one of the best tracks on the cd. I think it's the next single. The bass line and smooth beats will have u playing this over a nd over. Tight
3- This track is the reason I got this cd. Another smooth tight one where he plays the piano and talks about someone who he wishes he could be with. Lyrics and beats are tight. this will grow on u.
4-Another interlude. It could have been a song. Him playing piano
5-This song reminds me a lil bit of the song "poison" from bell biv devoe in the beginging when it starts up. Another tight track..the most hip/hop track on the album
6- This is a tight slow jam. Sounds like something from back in the day.
7-Another interlude. You can't really understand what he's saying. It could have done without it but it builds up to the next song.
8-Anyone who knows biggie will recognize the beat instatly. This is another hip-hop track. It's aiight.
9-Another slow jam. It's aight
10-This track is a tight slow Jam. Talking about how cold the world is but long as he's with his girl..it's aiight
11-Another interlude..sounds like spoken word poetry. U will think of "Love Jones" the movie when u hear this.
12-Fastest track on the album. This is another tight one. 13- This track right here? Betas out every slow jam on the album. Tightest slow jam track. This is for getting next to that special somebody and just chillin. 14-A laid back ballad. Makes u think back. It's good
15-This sounds like something form sade, but it's a tight track and I think this might be out in the summer for the single. This is another tight track.
16- This track is another tight slow jam and the lyrics are deep. My friend turned me on to this track and now we both trip anytime we hear it. 17-This sounds like it could be an R.kelly jam but It goes into a timberland beat. Over all it's a smooth song. Overall this is a smooth album that u could play on repeat. Carl is bringing badboy up again in R+B with this one. Get it!
