The cd is a mix of music & being nearly an oldie myself I much prefer the slower and more soulfull tracks. Well worth a listen though

Concebido e inspirado durante la última campaña presidencial de Barack Obama, Wake Up! pretende recuperar ese pasado del rnb más comprometido con el cambio social. El contraste entre la suavidad del cantante John Legend y la pasión/rotundidad del grupo de hip-hop The Roots han empastado finalmente para resucitar once canciones de protesta soul de los años 60 y 70, con el objetivo de evocar y capturar aquel fervor solidario, más necesario hoy que nunca.

La idea que está detrás de Wake Up! es simple: actualizar canciones -en su mayoría desconocidas por el gran público- para despertar la conciencia de una juventud aparentemente aletargada. Musicalmente, The Roots es una de las mejores bandas de la actualidad, dentro y fuera del mundo del hip-hop. John Legend es un notable vocalista que cuenta con dos álbumes neo-soul brillantes en su haber. Entonces, ¿Qué podría salir mal?

From start to finish this album proves that live playing by talented musicians backing a gifted singer singing uplifting songs is going to result in a joyful occasion. Legend's first album blew my socks off. The second one bought me a new, brightly coloured pair (knee socks at that!).... This third album has done the biz for me. I now have a whole wonderful wardrobe which matches those fantastic socks. Thankyou John Legend! Goodwill abounds. The world is now a better place. Buy this album. Feel the joy.

Every John's album is different, and it applies for this one too! Is inspirational, full of energy and have a great message to tell. I am just amazed! They actually have only one new song, the rest are remakes, and they are really great. Awesome! Thank you for another perfect album!

I have one album which I enjoy, but this I couldn't. Nothing in it to make me want to play it again, so it went to the charity shop during a cull of my collection.

An enjoyable album but not as good as the last 2. With hindsight perhaps I should have bought the CD rather than a download - I'm not sure where the downloaded file's gone & can't transfer it from my laptop to my PC where the rest of my music collection is.

This is a good record especially because it's played by REAL musicians with REAL instruments.
The song are soul classics and the singing of John Legend is fine though not as good as the originals.
What is really annoying is the (c)rapper who pollute some songs,I think it's time to relegate (c)rap for commercials or for kids game.
Black music has been polluted by these (c)rappers clowns for too long,let funk-soul-disco-blues-jazz and especially REAL singers do the talking!
