Debut album?! You'd never guess!
on 23 November 2002
Glenn Lewis: a breath of fresh talent amidst the talent pool otherwise known as neo-soul performers. Ever since his appearance in a school talent show, aged 14, in which he sang Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You", (where people thought that Glenn was lip-synching the words to the Stevie Wonder version), people have been comparing this new talent with the legend that is Stevie Wonder.
OK, so his style is similar (listen to "Beautiful Eyes", "Don't You Forget It", "Something To See" and "Dream"), and at times he sounds just like Stevie, but Glenn has so much more to offer than just a modern-day Mr. Wonder.
Think D'Angelo mixed with Musiq Soulchild. Think Jill Scott mixed with India Arie, and you'll begin to get a feel for what this man is all about. Combine these with his 'family-man' morals (as shown in "Beautiful Eyes" and "Don't You Forget It"), and his outstanding song-writing talent, and you're beginning to get below the surface of Glenn Lewis.
Of course, this is just his debut album, so (hopefully) there's a lot more to come. My personal favourites include "Beautiful Eyes", "Don't You Forget It", "Something To See", "One More Day", and "It's Not Fair", although I can easily listen to every song on the album over and over again.
For the sake of £8-9 (if bought used), then it is definitely worth the money. Heck, I'd fork out £20 for this quality music!
