Whitey thinks it could be better.
Ignore the album, except tracks 20, 21 and of course 1. He is an exceptionally talented poet, but not too good at singing. Still, it's worth a listen. Better than the crap these days.

Great Soul Album, political & moving music
Speaks about the issues you feel, the racism, political issues all encompassed in a great soul vibe, although the album contains songs from a while back its still great music, especially compared to today's standards! T I also heard about this guy through a certain Kanye West, "My Way Home" featuring Common made me curious. Their was nothing about the album I didn't like. I decided to buy it as I was into soul muisic and for a while their has been no one else thats really caught my attention, male vocalist wise, in the past couple of years besides Musiq and Anthony Hamilton, don't get me wrong their are other names in the collection but mention soul music to me and the rememberable names are Musiq and Anthony Hamilton and their must be a reason they stick in my head, because their that good.Read full review
