Former Guy lead singer Aaron Hall may provide the powerful vocals, smooth raps and most of the songwriting on THE TRUTH, but it is his collaborations with Vassal Benford that make up the core of Hall's first solo album. The songs co-written by Benford (who also produced, arranged and played most of the instruments on these tracks) are definitely the standouts on this contemporary R&B, hip-hop-styled release. The Vassal-produced opening cut, for instance, has a funky, punchy synth-bass groove, over which Hall wails and raps in fine form. "You Keep Me Crying" features some inventive production techniques by Benford, who uses a thundering bass to dramatically swoop down on an otherwise gentle ballad. At it's sharpest, THE TRUTH shows off a hip-hop artist who knows his way around a musically smooth vocal style. In fact, Hall has a strong gospel influence in his delivery, even if most of the lyrics are quite secular. The songs are of a mostly sexual nature. Hall's troubles with, and desires toward his "girl," "baby," "honey," "lady" and "nasty girl," are the album's underlying themes. Guy's brand of new jack swing can be recognized across all of THE TRUTH's beat-rich tracks. But Hall's church-reared, throaty
