Peabo Bryson - The Very Best Of Peabo Bryson
Written by Ifè Oshun   

hip-hop reviews For the Peabo Bryson newbie, Time Life got it right with this 16 track compilation superficially covering his best work over the course of three decades.

On a whole, the set features a safe-bet combination of Bryson's upbeat and quiet storm slow jams as well as his crossover hits, mega-hits and songs not so well known by the casual listener. You'll be transported back to the days of your young adulthood, childhood, or the time when you were a gleam in your daddy's eye as "Let The Feeling Flow" played softly in the background.

Van Hunt - On The Jungle Floor
Written by Ifè Oshun   

hip-hop reviews When listening to Van Hunt's latest release, one is struck by all the comparisons. Quick analogies include the obvious influences of classic artists such as Curtis Mayfield, Sly Stone, as well as Lenny Kravitz and, most obviously, early Prince.

One is also struck by the undeniable talent of this genre-defying artist who effortlessly writes, arranges, performs and co-produces the majority of songs on this sixteen track set.

Hil St. Soul - Soulidified
Written by Donna Prima   

hip-hop reviews British duo Hil St. Soul lays out strong, if not necessarily catchy, rhythms on their third set, the flowing follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2004 release Copasetic and Cool.

Zambian-born songstress Hilary Mwelwa and music partner Victor Redwood Sawyer, shine with buttery smooth soulful tracks like the milky "One Of A Kind" while the slightly up-tempo "Hey Boy" aptly showcases the alto's illustrative songwriting skills.





John Legend - Get Lifted: Album Review
Written by Ifè Oshun   
R&B Soul reviewsDubbed erroneously as a Neo-Soul artist, due mostly in part to his 2003 indie release Live at SOB's New York City, singer/songwriter/pianist John Legend has the stuff that can make his last name the watermark of his career.
