iTunes Editors' Notes

From the gritty groove of opener “Heart Attack” to the nine-minute epic closer “The Answer”, Raphael Saadiq can do no wrong on Stone Rollin’. He confidently sound-checks classic R&B, soul, and blues from Ray Charles to Motown to Sly & The Family Stone yet is always in command of his own style, mining influences and coming up with something new. Supremely talented, here he plays guitar, bass, keyboards, Mellotron, and drums like the studio ace and mega-producer he is (he’s also a founding member of Tony! Toni! Tone! and Lucy Pearl), and his electrifying falsetto is unstoppable on this collection of expertly-crafted songs. The title track, “Radio”, and the addictive “Day Dreams” can jumpstart a party, the symphonic spiritual “Go to Hell” is rich and sublime, “Just Don’t” is lushly psychedelic, and he delivers some sultry soul with “Good Man”. Track for track Stone Rollin’ may be the best example yet of Saadiq’s range and prodigious skill.

Customer Reviews

Raphael at his retro soul best

Great to hear Raphael Saadiq's follow up to "The way I see it" . He excels even more to capture the soul sound of the 60's but with an infectious beat. He is having a ball here with great tracks and a stomping band behind him. Soul as it used by Otis and Solomon. Outstanding

Stone Rollin' BACKWARDS!

What on earth is going on with music nowadays? It is the 21st century not the 20th century! Back in the 1990s music seemed to be going forward, we got introduced to Neo-Soul and Electronic Jazz but now we are in the 21st century and we seemed to have rewound to the 1960s - WHY!? What's the point. We've heard it all before. If I want to listen to Sam Cooke and Motown 60s. I will buy a compilation album from that time and not this album for instance. I mean what is Raphael thinking. He is much better than this. He is a talented bass guitar player and a fairly good vocalist and has always been able to naturally hold down that neo-soul vibe. But that vibe I am afraid has taken an awful dive with this album. There is no vibe and there is sure no soul in this effort. It sounds like a school project "A Tribute to 1960s Soul Gone Wrong". Well Mr Saadiq I give you a Grade A+. Much like Cee-Lo Green who is trying to sound like Solomon Burke and Mr Isley. He has failed the test. And Aloe Blacc who is trying to sound like Bill Withers. You too have failed. Leave it to the masters, to the teachers. Because you sound like students in comparison!

Brilliant

Love the song radio, I head them first on the jools holland show, the vocals are brilliant and like the other comment 'an infectious beat' is brilliant!!!
