REVIEWS
Average points: 4 (Reviews: 2)
****
Da hätte ich etwas mehr erwartet. Es fehlt an eingängigen Songs - ok den Hit "Lovely Day" mal ausgeschlossen. Es fehlt aber auch an richtiger Inbrunst von Seiten Withers. Da vermisse ich seine leidenschaftlichen Heuler, die bei Songs wie "Kissing My Love" oder "Grandma's Hands" zu hären sind. Auch die Instrumentierung klingt so extrem sanft und weich. Es fehlt sozusagen an Ecken und Kanten. Aber solide ist das immer noch. Seine Stimme ist schon der Hammer! 4+
****
Teile deine Meinung weitgehend, gegen Ende gibt es mit "Tender Things" und "Let Me Be the One You Need" immerhin zwei schöne, sanfte Balladen, die sich gut "Lovely Day" anpassen. Die Bemühungen Withers mit Disco oder flottem Soul in Verbindung zu bringen, finde ich auch nicht immer vollends überzeugend. Solides, gutes Album, auch dank seiner Stimme, aber mehr nicht. Kommerziell war es nach einigen mageren Jahren ein Comeback: Dank dem Hit "Lovely Day" platzierte sich die LP sogar erstmals in UK: # 27, USA # 39, RnB # 16, vergoldet.
