5.0 out of 5 stars Aijuswanaseing part II,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)That is just what it is, a continuation of the first album and if you have heard the first album you would totally agree with me !!! You could put both his album in a cd player and shuffle the cd's and the album would sound like one complete album. If you dont have the first album it is okay to by the seconds album but you will be missing so much !!!The twenty something star from Philly has really beated the sophomore album jinx plagued by alot of R&B / Soul artists. The feel of the album moves from the plutonic relationship in the first with "Just Friends" into a deeper realtionship with songs like "HalfCrazy" and "DontChange". I think guys would like the ballads like "PreviousCats" telling the women not to compare them with their past boyfriends and what wrong actions they did. It basically telling the ladies that a man should not be mad to suffer for the hurt and pain of another man in you life previous to you current boyfriend / partner. The ladies would love "DontChange" cos it has that line every girl would love to hear from their man, the - ""I'll love you when your hair turns gray/ Girl, I'll still want you if you gain a little weight." Check out the song for even better lines of unconditional love. Some of the songs follow up fro some of the issues he had in the first album like "Seventeen" is followed up with "Caught up" where the Seventeen old girl he liked has growned up into a lady of a consenting age !!! On the album he even covers a Beatles song which beatles fans will say he did it justice. Also there is an apperance from Aaries again from the first album and other song worth noting are "SoLong", "Something"-(Beatles cover) and "Motherfather"
If you like Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Jaguar Wright, Glenn Lewis, India Aire, Alicia Keys, D'Angelo etc etc i think you will have no problem adding Mr Soulchild, now just called Musiq to your collection. All i can say it is urban soul, with a hiphop and funkadelic fusion !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Musiq at its best,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)Oh my oh my - this album is just stunning. 19 tracks sounds long, but every minute of it is just full of stunning nu-soul tracks.
This may well be the best album I have. This guy has an amazing voice and possess brillient writing abilty.
There are many great Male nu-soul artists out there like Maxwell, D'Angelo, Jaheim and Joe. But I believe Musiq is the best out of the bunch.
After the fantastic debut album Musiq has kept to the same formula but made a few changes with a few tracks on here. But its all so so very good.
Another track with a heavy beat. Listen to it in the car and you head will just be moving along to the beat.
"I'll love you when your hair turns grey, I'll still want you if you gain a little weight"

5.0 out of 5 stars Feed ur ears!!!,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)The man that sings about everyday life. Play it in the car, in the house, at the park on a sunny day, This is a vibe album that will have u chilled out. If u love the 1st album then this is more of it. He hasn't really stepped up or gone in a new direction, its just More of the same. Now thats not a bad thing at all! A must have for u Musiq lovers. The album has some real beauties, listen 2 the 1st few tracks from 'Newness' 2 the excellent 'Time'and ull b hooked. Check the cool remix at the end of the CD, classic music. If u have heard the single'HalfCrazy' u know wat 2 expect. I love this sound so much, chill relax. If ur lookin for that laid back summer vibe then add this 2 ur collection, A must have!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do what it tells you - Juslisen,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)With the solid foundations laid in the form of his previous album, Aijuswannaseing, "Juslisen" was bound to be yet another working of 'musiqal' genius.
His style hasn't changed much since his last album, which is a relief. He knows exactly how to combine funk with soul and puts them with great lyrics, which is why it is such a great album.
My personal favourites include "Halfcrazy", "Religious", and "Ifiwouldaknew (girlnextdoor remix)". None of the songs stand out as much as "Just Friends" did on his last album, but they are still just as good.
He's a bit like a male version of India Arie (without the guitar). Possibly because they both look upto and respect Stevie Wonder so much. Don't get me wrong, though - his style is very different to Stevie Wonder, but if you like Stevie and India Arie, you'll definitely like Musiq Soulchild.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotion...,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)I dunno if anyone else felt this about "Juslisen", but I felt every emotion there was to feel when I listened to this for the first time - and I still do.
It made me laugh, it made me cry - it even made me think.
I brought this album on the day it came out. I ran home, got back into bed and listened to it about 6 times before I fell asleep. It was about this time that I realised I was in love with my partner, and this album was adopted as 'Ours'.
To me, "Juslisen" takes you on a journey. A journey through the stages of a relationship. You meet, you break up, you make up, and then you realise that maybe this whole relationship thing aint all that bad...
5.0 out of 5 stars The 'Soul' of Musiq,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)Where do I begin? Musiq Soulchild is the epitome of Neo-Soul, other artists are good but not like Musiq. His first album rocked the depths of my soul, with tracks like Love, Mary Go Round, etc. I thought I had heard the best he could do and then he did this! Lead tracks for me are HalfCrazy, Time, Dont Change, PreviousCats... infact, all the songs are great. Get it!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)Truely a soul classic. I have no hesitation recommending this album because like all good music it never leave your player for long and its back making you gettin your groove on all over again.
I guess i bought this a year or so ago and it was this album that got me into this sort of music. Theres not really a dead track in it. The album starts well with three really strong tracks and eases you gently into an album full of relaxed harmonies and quality beats. My favorite track is track 4 which i should think is one of the smoothest grooves around even today, so Juslisen and im sure you wont be disapointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Artist of the century,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)A wonderful follow up to his debut album, what is special sbout this album is that he has stayed true to his soul roots,without sounding like he is trying to be someone else.
Halfcrazy is what attracted me to this album but by the time i had listened to every single track halfcrazy became one of many favourites, particularly impressive was 'stoplayin' 'babygirl' 'solong' and 'previouscats'(the harmonies on that track are amazing)
this album has yet to retire from my cd player.
5.0 out of 5 stars A neo-soul masterpiece!,
This review is from: Juslisen (Audio CD)Recently relistend to this amazing album from one of the top neou-soul artists. Musiq delivers vocally on literally everytrack with beautiful production and lyrics, this has got to be one album that is quie simply ...a definitive neo-soul masterpiece!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fabulous,
This review is from: Juslisen (MP3 Download)This album is amazing I love it very much. Music latest album soulchild is ok but by no way can compare to this album. If you like your neo soul check this album out absolutely mind blowing.
