Consumer Guide Reviews:

Get Lifted [Getting Out Our Dreams/Sony Urban/Columbia, 2004]
For an ordinary soul man, he has excellent tunes ("I Can Change," "Live It Up"). ***

Once Again [Columbia, 2006]
So subtle, or slippery, you can't tell whether he's in love with a video pro named Maxine or doing her on the side ("P.D.A. [We Just Don't Care]," "Where Did My Baby Go"). *

Evolver [G.O.O.D. Music/Columbia, 2008] Dud
