Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] brilliantly conceived and executed album, reviving music from the nixon-era heyday of politically engaged R&B." Mojo (Publisher) (p.97) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "An admirably cocksure romp through Eugene McDaniels' 'Compared To What' ups the lyrical ante, with Legend bringing full-throated truth..." Mojo (Publisher) (p.51) - Ranked #48 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "Legend's plaintive, gospelly cadences had a previously absent edginess." Paste (magazine) - "The album is organic and opulent, with a heart of diamonds a lush sound to match, and it delivers exactly what it promises: consciousness-raising tracks from spiritual-soul all-stars..." Clash (magazine) - "[A] soulful reimagining of 60's and 70's urban protest songs....The concept of political awareness reigns supreme..."

    As always, John Legend's voice is distinct and excels at no matter he sets out to do. Take out the "rap" on some of the songs and you are left with some pretty decent listening cuts.
