I have to admit, being aged 50+, I had never heard of Ne-Yo. I heard the first song on this CD, Closer, sung by a live singer in a pub. I absolutely fell in love with this song. The singer sung it again at my request. The next day I did a search on 'youtube' for Closer. I found it and so then I knew it was sung by Ne-Yo. I decided to buy this CD just so that I would have this one track even though I did not know any of the other tracks. I was prepared not to like the rest of it. How wrong I was! It is currently my favourite CD, the one I always put on first. I would say it sounds (to me) like a mix of Stevie Wonder, Blue and Craig David. Very pleasant, catchy and easy listening. I would recommend this CD. I'm so pleased I found it.
