Album Review

Part of Elliott Yamin's charm lies in how he doesn't seem to belong to his time. A disciple of Donny Hathaway (and to a lesser extent, Stevie Wonder), Yamin never felt comfortable in contemporary threads, whether it was during his time on American Idol or afterward, when he cut his eponymous first album in 2007. That record was perched between his classicism and flirtations with contemporary R&B, but its 2009 successor, Fight for Love, tips the scales decidedly in the favor of aggressive modern flavors, a shift perhaps tipped off by its combative title. Moving in this direction only makes sense — in order to make records, he has to sell records, and to do that he has to have songs that sound like the times. Yamin remains an ingratiating presence, possessed with a natural, almost accidental charm that's so endearing that it's hard not to wish that he was in warmer surroundings than these.

Customer Reviews

I have gone from Like to Love of this record

On first listen I didn't think this album was as good as the first one. By the third and fourth listen though my mind was changed and now I think that it is better. There are several tunes that have grown on me more each time I hear them. I now believe that this album will be a favourite for a long time. Good job Elliott. Keep it up. I want to be listening to you for a good long time.

This one is better then the first

This CD got my attention faster then Elliott's debute. Every song is a hit on this CD, I can't say which one is better because they are all good. I hope this one goes platinum as it should.

Wow Elliott!

i am suprised with this album. all songs have a great beat and they dont sound forced at all. his last album was so robotic and i thought he was going to go down as they guy who sang Wait for You and end of story. With this album i cant pick my favorite song. The songs have it all. although ill be honest....the songs " Know Better" , "You", and " Apart from Me" really satisfy my craving and love for Yamin.
