CRITIC REVIEWS

85
The 405

This professionalism is replicated in the mostly live recordings of tracks on Whatever Makes U Happy, which produces a more human and breathable album now JMSN’s music is stripped of samples and production tricks.

Exclaim!

JMSN shifts away — ever so slightly — away from his dark-tinged musical output and lighten things up.

GIGsoup

Musically the album is more complex than a simple  R&B album. He picks up on facets of soul, funk and gospel music. There is an energetic groove which permeates throughout.

Pitchfork

JMSN gets the forms right, but there’s a hollowness to his performance. He doesn’t have enough command in his voice to put his songs over with authority, or enough reticence to be seductively absent from them.

Jameson is one smooth operator. He brings out the soul in you and me with this album. This album is glossy and, when in the right mood and maybe with the right crowd, will open your heart to new flavors of lust.

Some of the best neo-soul in decades. Truly a testament to JMSN's real talent; making you groove and feel at the same time.

BEST TRACKS: Angel, Drinkin', Always Somethin', Love Ain't Enough, Slide, Slowly, Patiently
