Instant genius from the mighty Eric
Roberson – easily one of the greatest soul singers we've ever heard – and that's saying a lot, given how many records we've listened to over the years! Eric
's one of the few artists who can bring a smile to our face from the very first note of a new album – and this set's got us smiling all the way through – sharing Eric
's tremendous sense of joy and love in his music, and further marveling at his growing talent as a songwriting over the years. Roberson's voice is enough to make a tune great – but his lyrics here are especially great, personal themes and topics that come off with a real sense of poetry that few other singers can match. Eric
's way ahead of the pack here – setting a new standard for the male voice in soul music, yet also firmly placing himself amidst a strong lineage from the classic years. Why this guy isn't a superstar is beyond us – but honestly, we're loving him at this level – because it means that Eric
is as upfront and close as his music! Titles include "Music", "Evening", "Been In Love", "Iluvu2much", "Only For You", "Too Soon", "Pretty Girl", "If I Had A Chance", and "The Baby Song".
