[NEW RELEASES] Eric Benet
Anyone who has enjoyed Benet’s soft and soulful voice will appreciate this album. It’s quintessential R&B. He sings of a lost love, yearns for a potential one and makes the listener want a hot cup of coffee.
If you’re not a fan of Benet, the album may come off as a little dull or sound like a rehashing of what he’s done before.
For Benet fans, however, the album is a welcome departure from his previous two albums - “Hurricane” (2005) and “Love & Life” (2008).
“Hurricane” contained melancholic music that played up his soulful voice, reflecting the breakup of his marriage to actress Halle Berry. “Love & Life” was a bit more lively with hits such as “Chocolate Legs.”
This time, Benet diversifies his music even more with upbeat songs influenced by Motown and disco, especially in the songs “Paid” and “Good Life,” both of which really lift up the whole album.
