BBC Review

Signed to So So Def, Anthony Hamilton has quietly been plying his trade within the soul fraternity since 1993 when he joined Mary J Blige's stable, Uptown Records, before going on to become backing vocalist for D'Angelo.

Since then he's contributed guest vocals and written for the likes of Nappy Roots, Dr Dre, 2 Pac, Al Green and Santana (to name a few); released two modern soul classics in the shape of Comin' From Where I'm From (2003) and Ain't Nobody Worryin' (2005); and made a cameo appearance by performing the lead soundtrack single in Denzel Washington's American Gangster.

Now the North Carolinan releases his third official studio album, which like its predecessors showcases the singer-songwriter's prolific knack for writing melodic emotional, topical songs - all executed with his signature rich and heartfelt vocals.

Influences ranging from Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Bobby Womack to Sly and the Family Stone are evident throughout. Opening track The News sets the precedent (produced by regular cohort Mark Batson), evoking memories of Womack's Across 110 Street era; its dark dramatic orchestration and hip hop beat providing the heartbeat for Hamilton's social commentary of street survival.

Much like John Legend (with less commercial aspirations) Hamilton has developed a partiality for creating beautifully crafted traditional soul with contemporary hip-hop. David Banner's appearance on swaggering lead single Cool epitomises this - drawing comparisons to D'Angelo's Left featuring Method Man and Redman.

Soul's On Fire is Hamilton at his drama-filled best; its sparse beat underneath horn-packed gospel arrangements stirring memories of Preacher's Daughter (2005) whilst the bluegrass-gospel fused Prayin' For You/Superman allows the soul man to showboat his church background.

The stunningly beautiful Her Heart is a testament to the 37 year-old's songwriting pedigree as is the Heavy D-produced She's Gone - triumphing as an anthemic narrative for all broken relationships.

Point Of It All is a wonderfully diverse collection of gospel, country, blues, soul and hip-hop - sung by one of modern day soul's true pioneers and great performers. It must finally bring its creator the critical and commercial acclaim that he is long overdue. --David Aaron

I'd agree. Maybe a little safe, but gorgeous.
It's a lot more trad American soul than I'd normally buy and Ain't Nobody Worryin is still my fav album.
But Mr H's tremendous depth of voice just dragged me in there after a couple of plays. And the other musicians and the production are pretty spot on too.
Did he do the final recordings in Movember, considering that fine mo' he sporting there on the cover art?
(Although I could lose Track 11, which is pretty but a little too middle of the road. The keyboards sound a bit like spa muzik. That'll be a Skip then).
But they follow that up with a huge bass thump & a falsetto on Fine Again.
I defy you not to sing along...

A friend recommended I take a listen to Anthomy Hamilton's music as she thought I would like it. She was wrong, I love it! A really beautiful soulful voice and gorgeous lyrics. I would suggest if you are looking to buy this album then you get the album with additional songs (not the one above), as the song that I really wanted is not on this album (Dear Life) and ended up buying in iTunes. I am now in the process of buying all of Mr Hamilton's other albums, a wonderful artist in a world where so much of the 'music' that is now out there is manufactured rubbish.

The title track of this album is the reason I bought it, I love the track powerful yet poignant at the same time. Anthony Hamilton's range will leave you stunned with its beauty and power. A really soulful album that I'm sure you'll play again and again.

This man has a voice that is so devine.

Before you're even aware of it, the album has you closing your eyes and melting in the smoothness on that heavenly soulful southern voice.

Its got me tapping my foot, fingers and shimming my shoulders.

I am just loving it, mixing the soft with a bit of upbeat - talented, gifted. Different to Soulife but just as great.

Straight into my ten desert island soul albums of all time!This is masterful.If you have heard of Anthony Hamilton which I expect you have if you are checking out this album then rest assurred this set delivers his sound and some.Slightly more lush,modern production here but the raw southern edge to Mr.Hamilton's voice is still present.I have all his albums and I think after a few listens that this sits with the best which in my opinion is Soulife (I know you won't agree but it's my opinion).
The mark of a good album is its potential playability in ten years time.This album will offer listening pleasure for an eternity.BUY IT!
