5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Get Better Than This, 2 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Comin' From Where I'm From (Audio CD)
Anthony Hamilton's now 4th studio album for most will be his debut. Either way this is album stands out among a sea of neo-soul artists. His rootsy, gospel approach to neo-soul/r&b gives him a sense of genuiness (he writes and produces most tracks) that is unparalleled among male artists for the most part by capturing that essence of soulful urban music. It's true, its real sounding. It emmulates the proverbial elephant: you know it when you see it (or hear it) but can't describe it. If you didnt know where you're bones were before, you feel this album to them now.
His slightly gravely voice is yet so silky and seduces you through this 12 track album. 12 is the magic number to give you just enough and yet makes you hit repeat each and everytime. His sound is southern, no doubt. "Cornbread, Fish, and Collard Greens" epitomises that. While "Charlene" is the most popular song off the album it, unlike other albums of today, does not a pariah to the rest of the album.
This is what music should be like now and makes you think of Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, and Bobby Womack. On a more modern tip, he sits comfortably with his better contemporaries like Leela James, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, and D'Angelo. I thoroughly look forward to his future work.
BEST TRACKS (really hard pushed here): 1) Cornbread, Fish, and Collard Greens 2) Charlene 3) I'm A Mess, 4) Mama Knew Love, 5) general tie with the other tracks.
