Nobody would disagree that Angie Stone would make a great soul singer of the 1970s. Her musical style pays so much homage to that decade, that many of her songs, save the modern production, sound as if they could have been released in 1974 and not 2004. But while her music may be old school, it's definitely not old fashioned. Her third and most consistent album, "Stone Love," is overall more favorable than 2001's solid (if long-winded) "Mahogany Soul." There's nothing here that tops "Brother" or the knockout "Bottles and Cans," but at 55 minutes, it's lean and to the point with no throwaway songs. She ropes in Floetry for "My Man," teams up with fellow nu soul-er Anthony Hamilton on the standout "Stay For a While," emotes with conviction on "You Don't Love Me," and delivers a killer breakup jam "U-Haul," which, as the title implies, finds our heroine moving out of her man's crib and life. While Stone often wears her soul influences on her sleeve, there's enough good stuff on "Stone Love" to make it worth checking out.
