Customer Review

on 3 March 2005
It is long overdue but the talents of John Legend are finally getting world-wide recognition. A piano player of some ability, and a song writer of equally aptitude, Legend has, along with the help of Kanye West, produced an album of worthy recognition.
It has an overiding theme (that being the up's and down's of relationships, generally) which is complimented by smooth harmonies with an urban flavour. Yet it manages to sound 'old skool'! This is where the real quality lies for me. Admittedly some of the songs are slightly corny, driven by sexual urges of a young man who seemingly can't get enough, but the album is pieced together well.
The best songs for me are "ordinary people", "Live it up" and despite my comments above "She don't have to know". Legend is at his best playing simple melodies at the piano, letting his incredibly soulful (slightly gravelly!) voice shine through.
For lovers of urban music or modern soul or jazz or as previously stated more classic soul, then this album is sure to please.
