John Legend is one of my favourite R&B singers without a doubt. He really reminds me of what is right with the genre and that once upon a time we had people like Sam Cooke. His albums are quality first and this is no exception. This album for the most part is far more up tempo than his last album Once Again. The lead single with Andre 3000 (Green Light) is evidence of that. The album has a few features peppered in (Andre 3000, Brandy, Kanye West, Estelle) but they are not overwhelming. The tempo calms down towards the end of the album and there are two songs where Legend continues to dable in reggae. I saw him live in Brixton where he remixed Used to Love U from his first album into a reggae remix and there are those features on Estelle's album Shine where there was a reggae sound. It does really suit his voice and it doesn't sound gimicky like some other R&B artists (Mariah Carey). Here is a brief look at some stand out tracks

Good Morning Intro/Green Light ft. Andre 3000 - the up-tempo track is very Outkast reminiscent which is nice for a group I haven't hread from in a while. There isn't an obvious piano track on here so I like to hear John doing different things. 5/5

It's Over ft. Kanye West - this track about someone who just doesn't get it when you've broken up, is brassy with horns and again a slightly modern drum and electric sound. There is a lingering female vocal as well. Kanye's rap is all right again with the vocoder (think T Pain). 4/5

Everybody Knows - this is almost countryish in its start with just an acoustic guitar and a simple drum line. John's voice stands out and the lyrics are very well written. The song is about your ex finding someone new which works well flowing from the first song. This song is subtle and is an easy listen.

Album no 3 for john legend is a mixture of uptempo rnb songs mixed with the usual ballads. This is a solid album and is only mared by the poor last 3 tracks which has made me knock a star off. The single Green Light is excellent and is prob the albums best tracks but there lots of other cool tracks. Some of the ballads arent as strong as some of his previous ones but are still good and all the uptempo numbers are excellent. John even dabbles with reggae on 2 tracks and 1 has co-vocals by Estelle to great effect and the track turns out to be an album highlight!

One of the better rnb albums iv'e heard this year.

This album is not bad but there is something missing from it, it hasnt quite got that soulful feel that you usually get from JL. The trouble is that when you hear the first song, you think wow, great, but really, thats as exciting as the album gets. The track with Kanye is ok, the track with Brandy and the track with Estelle are both worthy efforts but overall this album sounds a bit dull. Its just not as exciting and you know thats true when you find yourself only repeating 3 out of 12 songs and skipping too many.

Like most artist, he set the standard by which he is judged with his first album and this is not on par. I mean this takes away nothing from JL as he is still a soulful artist and you can sense that but not to a great depth.

I bought this cd by accident and it's the best accident I've ever made!
Having not particularily liked the over rated "Get Lifed" album (apart from a few tracks), I had kind of gone off John Legend. I was looking at this Evolver album (attracted by the amazing 1.75 price) when I somehow accidently bought it by mistake. It arrived and I love it! There are some great tracks on there duets, with Brandy and a few others which are beautiful, and I love the reggae feel of some of the other tracks, one of which just makes you want to get up and dance and sing along. Best accident I ever bought! Buy it and ay this price you just can't complain.

Heard all the tracks on Spotify some years earlier and thought they were so good that I bought the album. No regrets whatsoever. Legend is truly amazing - his duet with Brandy, Quickly, which was written by Frank Ocean (amongst others) takes your breath away. This Time still gets me emotional. These are but to name a few of what it has to offer. Highly recommended. Less intense than his last and the one before, but equally charming and spine tingling.

It's so rare that one artist puts out album after album of really high quality stuff - after one or two the standard usually dips, but it seems John Legend's creative juices are still flowing as fast and as beautifully as ever. Favourite track has to be Good Morning - so catchy!

I loved his 1st album pretty much from the first listen. I then went to see him perform it live in Manchester and it was one of the best gigs I've ever been to. I picked up his second album as soon as it was released and, at first, didn't think it quite matched his first, but it grew on me massively and it became one of my most listened to albums. I think he really achieved a unique sound on Once Again. After 2 listens of this new album I am saddened to say that I have to agree with a review I read in a London freesheet (a review to which I originally reacted with outrage, especially as the reviewer called it his '2nd album'!), it is too 'smaltzy'. I don't really enjoy the use of 80s-style synthesisers and think John Legend's amazing voice is better suited to a more organic Donny Hathaway/Stevie Wonder-type sound. Although Kanye West served him well on his 1st album, I think Mr Legend should stray away from obvious big hit makers like Will.i.am, Andre 3000 etc. and get someone like Raphael Saadiq to produce his next album.
