SERIOUS LISTENERS ONLY!
Its only April, but I can’t see another R&B album this year being better than Southern Comfort. As of late, Southern music has been dominated by rap. There have been a few R&B artists here and there, but money, cars, drugs, and women have been the dominant themes. Anthony Hamilton breathes a breath of fresh air not only into the South, but also into the onslaught of watered down R&B playing on the radio.
“They Don’t Know Why” is a smooth track that kicks off what the listener hopes to be a never ending litany of great music. Hamilton’s voice immediately takes over and places the listener into a trance. But alas, the album only has ten tracks, leaving the listener wondering why so few songs. Unlike so many albums, however, Southern Comfort has not one wasted track.
If you are serious about your R&B or have matured past Omarion’s “Icebox,” check out Anthony Hamilton. You won’t be disappointed.
