    It's nice...Very nice.



    Musically it's just sooo...Thick. It seems really rich when compared to "Get Lifted"...Get lifted was rich and all, but to me this just stepped up the maturity level...Lyrically too.

    Honestly, I'm an R&B modernist, so I don't know how much this means, but this album is one of my favorites of all time. I would put it even with Juslisen at number one. His music has grown so much since Get Lifted....

    I love Legend, but this album is almost too sexy. I can't wait to possess it.

    It's 14 songs on there.

    Anyway this was a great album. A lot of people I know that heard it didn't like it because it didn't have that "hip hop" feel to it like Get Lifted had. Seem like on this album he had more creative control over it. He still got a lot of songs on there talking about cheating lol.

    Probably the best RnB album I done heard all year so far.

    The original Again is probably my favorite on here...

    "Damn I love you....but this is crazy...i have to fight you..almost daily...we break up...so fast and we...we make up so passionately...why can't we just trust each other...etc.." Love the way he does that part.

    Iono, I feel like I've been (or am in) the exact situation described in Another Again. Relatability is a huge factor I suppose...

    I never took the time out to get into John Legend as I've been on a serious jazz kick for the last 3 years now... I mean, it's all I've been listening to other than hip hop... I did peep "Get Lifted" when it came out, but I wasn't impressed... however, I only heard 30 sec samples... but from the way you guys are hyperbolizing about this, I may have to consider him again... the last male R&B vocalist to really move me was Bilal... maybe I can get into Legend.

    it's great, maybe even the best r&b record of the year, but i don't know about "by farrrrrr!!!"
    van hunt, raul midon, and robin thicke all put out excellent records this year, and I'm sure there have been others I haven't heard too.
