It's Not Nag, It's Just Me

Can't recall when I bought his last album 'Once Again' which was a very enjoyable album with a few really outstanding tracks. But then again, with John Legend, I felt that one should not pick any specific track but to just listen to the album as a whole. and that's what i've been doing with his latest offering, Evolver.

It's as enjoyable as his last album. And I already have a few tracks that I absolutely love. From the Morning Intro, the album launch into a few upbeat tracks that kinda motivate you. Really good to play it before going to work. Green Light was a collabration with Outkast's Andre 3000 and the result was a brilliant John Legend track with Outkast's groove to it. It's Over follow next but it's a bit normal considering this is a Pharell & Kanye composition. Not even the Teddy Riley mix (featured as one of the two bonus tracks) help much.

Like its title, Quickly, the collabration with Brandy quickly grooved up on you. The latter part of the album are slow jamz and are all nicely done. Not sure why but Can't Be My Lover, John's attempt at Ragga was not in the official track list but is being featured as the additional Bonus Track. Featuring Buju Banton, this track is quite brilliant, just like how I love his PDA on his sophomore album.

Third offering...and still nothing is wrong with it....definitely a Legend.
