A gorgeous debut, so precious in its conception and so generous in its entity that becomes a constant source of reflection to ease the soul.
Conscious music for conscious people.

So I knew a few songs here before trying out the full album - and it's all very enjoyable with an easygoing appeal.

Does it blow my mind? No.

He has one of the archetypal soul voices and while I can appreciate just how high class this album is - for me, it's still predominantly background music.

Mr superfly himself Curtis Mayfield dropped one hell of a essential soul record that is sincerely genuine and moving.
