"The ooh the ahh the ooh, the sounds of the birds and the bees bringing you too your knees"
Thats what Lemar gave us lyrically from his first album on the track "Dance (with u)". I was quite unimpressed. But how the man as a singer and song writer has improved.
"Time to Grow" is just excellent. A UK artist bringing out this quality is not often found but Lemar has proved that he is the UK's premier soul singer and on this evidence he cannot be touched.
The opening track "Soulman" is a throwback to the 70's and Lemar has a point to make, which is that no matter what he is portrayed as, he is a soul singer first and formost. And for this soul music lover this track is heaven.
"Better Than This" is just a beautiful track. No doubt this will be a single. His voice is smooth, the tune is seductive and it don't get better than this! This is real quiality RnB/Soul which has the crossover appeal yet stays in the classic soul mode.
"I Don't Mind" is a continuation from track two but slightly more upbeat.
Track four is "What If?". I would identify this as one of the weaker tracks. Although the album is filled with so many great tracks I might be being a bit harsh. His voice again is just superb.
"Call Me Daddy" is a cool track. Bit more of a story in this one. This is one of the tracks where you can see his development as a songwriter. Hes looking at situations and telling his story in a way that will connect to his listeners.
Track six is the first single "If There's any justice" which most of you would have heard by now. Sounds like a throwback to the motown era. Its a great track. Loved it when I first heard it. Still love it now.
"Don't Give it Up" is track 7. Im totally in love with this song. Its got that 90's rnb feel. Its just amazing.

Admittedly, I was one of the sceptics. His debut album was just Ok. Average. Not bad. This.. well I didn't expect too much from this one. What a pleasant surprise therefore to encounter what instantly became for me, absolutely the best SOUL album I've heard in years. The album title is apt. Not only has his content matured, but his voice seems inextricably melded to the lyrics and melody - Call me Daddy a case in point. Kudos too to the folks in production. It must have been hard to resist the urge to overcook things, what with the vocal gymnastics Lemar can display. They did their work with aplomb. The song writers couldn't have found a better vocal outlet. Diane Warren needs to make a call to Mr Lemar's people!
Lemar, if you read this, very well done. On any level, this is without doubt the best SOUL and RnB album pn the planet right now. Now go and smack people on billboard!!

I have followed Lemar since Fame Academy, he is brill. I thought his first album was ok, but then I eagerly waited for his second, and I wasn't dissapointed.
I listened to it the first day it was realesed and I thought it was average, but then I listened to it many more times, and then I really got the true sound of Lemar!
My favourite tracks are Soul man(release it Lemar!) If theres any justice( my favourite track) and Call me Daddy( its a sad but moving)
One of the best album of the year!
Brilliant and moving

Lemar's second album is very good! It's alot more mature than his first album. The songs cover a wide range of topics.
1/Soulman - Very good choice for the opening track, it just sums up what Lemar's voice and his music are all about.
2/Better Than This - Not one of the strongest tracks, but fantastic still. The verse and chorus have a good beat, whereas the bridge brings in some classic R'n'B.
3/I Don't Mind That - The first slow-ish song on the album. Again, not the strongest track but very good for just listening to whilst chilling.
4/What If? - The first ballad on the album. Very good vocals, and is lovely to hear the soft piano melody playing in the background. Reminds me of 'Lullaby' from the first album.
5/Call Me Daddy - Fantastic lyrics! When I first saw the title I thought it was odd... but after listening to the lyrics it's just a lovely song. The song is about miscarriage and how the parents of the child feel about what could have happened. It's just lovely, that sums it up for me.
6/If There's Any Justice - The first single from the album. Cool song, Lemar's voice sounds great on this song. Yet again, not the strongest track in my opinion, but it's darn good.
7/Don't Give It Up - One of the best songs on the album in my opinion. The beat throughout the song is great, combines the usual with clapping. Makes you wanna dance, but has a good melody also.
8/Time To Grow - The second single and title track from the album! Wonderful ballad and Lemar's voice, again, is just beautiful on this song. One of the best on the album.
9/Complicated Cupid - Good song, good beat, good to dance to. No real depth in it for me. None the less, excellent party track.
10/Maybe Just Maybe - Another ballad-y type track.

First track of this album was a good introduction to what I believe is a competent, steady album. I just love it and I get the feeling Lemar is in no rush to deliver an amazing cavern of talent that is still yet to come. I call this a "Spring/Summer Player", the type of music to be played on hot sultry days and cool evenings before going out.
Nice one Lemar.
