4.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated singer, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doubleback: Evolution of R&B (MP3 Download)
Time and time, Joe Thomas has come back when people have written him off. Hip Hop & RNB has become pop/mainstream music, so it's hard to keep up with the architects of that sound unless you are a purist. Doubleback falls in the category of ALL THAT I AM, his sophomore that saved his career and announced this fine crooner as a sensual singer. Although this album doesn't sound like an evolution to RNB, but more like a throwback, stripped contemporary Soul (the album cover picture and colour is a giveaway), it does stand out in today's spectrum.

Miguel has reminded people what this genre should sound like, Tyrese - Ginuwine - Tank want to do the same. Joe is back to the basics and songs like the lead single "I'd rather have love" or "Mary Jane" - my favourite so far - are proof of it. As far as uptempo tracks, "Compromise" is a perfect number and "1 to 1 ratio" is ideal for lounge bars or soundtrack to your barbecue or Sunday dinner.

All been said, I feel that DOUBLEBACK is superior that his last 3 previous efforts - THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE SEXY / SIGNATURE / NEW MAN - but a step in the right direction. As far as evolution goes, sometimes one has to take a step back before jumping forward. He is done exactly that...
