4.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT BENSON 18 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
In the late eighties George was THE man,sold out concerts throughout the world,millions of recods sold,then suddenly things went quiet well
it is with great happiness i report,he is back on top form.
Listen to "Some day we'll all be free"and you could be mid"Gimme the night"era Benson.
The late great Roger Troutmans "Nuthin but a party"is pure funk.
The strength of the album is not only the choice of songs but also songwriters,James Taylor,Rod Temperton(Of "Thriller"fame) Bill Withers and Tony Joe white have all contributed to make this a very listenable album.
*Exotica"has an "In Flight" feel to it featuring Bensons exquisite guitar sound(an Ibanez if i am not mistaken)beautifully played.
"Rainy night in Georgia" is every bit as good as its always been all the the voice does sound a bit off key.
"One like you" is classic Benson and is as smooth as Chocolate (Cadburys of Course!!)
"Living in high definition" is the longest track on the album and also the most dance worthy a seven an a quater minute dace instrumental,that will in someways remind you of Earth Wind and Fire.
The final song is a version of "Sailing" written by Chris Cross and is absolutely beautifull
Welcome back George,how about some gigs?

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to finest form - with one exception 17 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
George and his music have moved through so many chapters, there is a need to establish exactly which part of the congregation of his broad church this should appeal to. Soft Jazz is the easiest box in which to hole the pigeon, if only for the self announced sourcerer's apprentice Norman Brown turning up to start the House Party at No.6

Praise? it is beautifully captured and draws a tight line through George's most popular years of the 1980's. EASY to the ear yet still kept sufficiently REAL to be occaisionally challenging. It is a major step forward from the misguided "Irreplaceable" which left GB looking lost in search of AKON or some equally youthful parody.
Criticism? Too safe. The cast list is a who's who of soul titans name checking (would have been name-dropping if it were not for GB's own stratospheric credibility) James Taylor, Donny Hathaway, Bill Withers, Christopher Cross, Lamont Dozier and Marcus Miller and that's only the writer credits. With said Norman Brown, the enigmatic Lala Hathaway, Greg Phillanganes, Paulinho De Costa etc. etc. among the monumental players George can seemingly summon at will.
The only person who could pull a better line up together would be God himself calling on Lennon, Jackson and Miles Davis to help with his comeback album.
There is an inescapable air of predictability around the collection, which dips to the casual when we arrive at Rainy Night. GB clearly wanted to do it, but couldn't hit it (vocally), so we have him crouching down an octave on Randy Crawford's seminal original. The first time you'll hear him give away his true age and dangerously close to blue-plate specials at a Vegas hotel cabaret. Unnecessary.
