I had the opportunity to see him perform live at the Jazz cafe, and it was just him and the piano. He was excellent, imagine shutting up a crowd of over 400 people!
I've known about him for quite some time, about 3 or so years, and I have two earlier albums which he produced himself.
He's a refreshing artist, with a very old but new sound. It's his vocals that will drag you into his music, followed by the lyrics, then the sounds. His voice makes you think your listening to an older artist in the era of Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway etc, but it's his lyrics and music that bring you to today's lifestyle! I can relate to most of the tracks, and thoroughly enjoyed listening to it!
My favourites are Ordinary People, She Don't Have to Know, and It Don't Have to Change.
If you're still not sure about him, then listen to his older album Soul Sessions Vol1 Live at the Knitting Factory (live stuff).
If you're like me, and you enjoy classic soul/rnb/philly soul/gospel, then you will enjoy this album.

John Legend is the brightest new solo artist R&B has to offer. His excellent composition, vocal and piano playing skills combine to make a breathtaking album of legendary proportions.
I bought this album on impulse, after seeing an advert on television, and hearing a 2-second clip of "Used to Love U". It was enough to make me hunger for more, indeed! As soon as I bought it, listened to the opening "Let's Get Lifted" I was hooked on Legend's soothing, souly vocals and hip-hop edge.
I am a fan of soul, hip-hop, RnB, alot of classic soul especially. He seems to blend generations and appeals to all of these likes. Despite a slight lyrical reptetiveness (Relationship problems are all the album.
Alright - Wants a girl to cheat on her man for him
She Don't Have To Know - Telling his mistress that his girlfriend won't find out about them
Number One - Telling his wife he's changed his bachelor ways forever
I Can Change - Again, telling a partner his bachelor ways are over
Ordinary People - about an arguing couple
Stay With You - Obvious from title
It Don't Have to Change - Relationship on the rocks, reminicising to better times)
the album soars melodically; the gripping vocals, sweet, soft sound and the production skills of Kanye West have ensured a splendid "debut" from Mr. Legend.
Favourite tracks:
After repeated listening, alot of them.
Used to Love U, Alright, She Don't Need To Know & Ordinary People are all fantastic, but the wonderful gospel-lathered It Don't Have to Change is definately the best the album has to offer.
You'll be lifted by this, indeed.

Must have for your music collection. Listen to when you are trying to relax, or with your girlfriend/boyfriend.

Let's Get Lifted: 7/10: Not my favourite song on the album. The beginning of the album doesn't reach the standard of the second for me.

Used to Love U: 8/10: The song is more up tempo and very catchy. Good break up song. Gives the album more variety, you cant just have all sad ballards!

Alright: 7/10: I just love the lyrics and the bass line is great. But i think this isnt one of the best tracks, its a bit predictable.

She Don't have to Know: 7/10: OK, not particularly strong. To be honest its a bit of a filler song.

Number One: 10/10: One of my ultimate highlights from the whole album! Cant help but sing along! Kanye West adds a different flavour which makes it very diverse and still class.

I Can Change: 5/10: This song is my least favourite, a bit boring. Snoop Dogg just annoys me, just the same crap he always does.

Ordinary People: 10/10: Just great! Love the piano in this one as well. I cant believe they released a radio version with a beat in the background. This is far better.

Stay With You: 9/10: This is one of the more beautiful songs on the album. John legend's voice sounds sublime. Good love song.

Let's get lifted again: 5/10: Still haven't really listened to this one as it hasn't grabbed me in any way as yet but it's relaxing and has a nice melody. Shows his voice off well too. Filler song really.

So High: 10/10: Another highlight. Just John's voice and the piano is breathtaking. Just sit back and listen. I think this may be my favourite.

Refuge (when it's cold outside): 7/10: Good song, but the lyrics arent that great on this one.

It is long overdue but the talents of John Legend are finally getting world-wide recognition. A piano player of some ability, and a song writer of equally aptitude, Legend has, along with the help of Kanye West, produced an album of worthy recognition.
It has an overiding theme (that being the up's and down's of relationships, generally) which is complimented by smooth harmonies with an urban flavour. Yet it manages to sound 'old skool'! This is where the real quality lies for me. Admittedly some of the songs are slightly corny, driven by sexual urges of a young man who seemingly can't get enough, but the album is pieced together well.
The best songs for me are "ordinary people", "Live it up" and despite my comments above "She don't have to know". Legend is at his best playing simple melodies at the piano, letting his incredibly soulful (slightly gravelly!) voice shine through.
For lovers of urban music or modern soul or jazz or as previously stated more classic soul, then this album is sure to please.
