Album Review

The opening track of V's first album is a smart takeoff of the old standard "It Was a Very Good Year," dramatically setting the scene for the album in much the same way that the similarly lush opening of OutKast's The Love Below does. The Philadelphia-based R&B singer's a mellower cat than Andre Benjamin, however, and he's also glossier and more suave than Anthony Hamilton, the other neo-soul singer he most closely resembles. If the churchy Hamilton's the new Al Green or Bill Withers, V is more like the new Lou Rawls: he never breaks a sweat on The Revelation Is Now Televised, even at his most impassioned. Similarly, the production (headed up by the too-quiet Jazzy Jeff) is elegant and richly detailed, balanced between crisp R&B electronics and the orchestral vibe of classic Philly soul. To complete the hometown rooting section, the great Jill Scott guests on the album's high point, the exhilarating "Born Again." A hugely enjoyable album that looks backward while remaining utterly contemporary, The Revelation Is Now Televised is a must-listen for neo-soul fans.

Customer Reviews


Sounds like Glen Lewis, who sounds like Stevie Wonder so voice wise he is great. The album though in general is very good and to be honest words can't do it justice. Another artist alot like Anthony Hamilon, Raul Midon, The Stix are all lesser known I wonder why when there music is real music and better then 90% of whats on the market today.

Born Again

For me the most outstanding tracks are Born Again and Still. Born Again is a personal account of a deeply spiritual experience. When an artist can describe such a personal account through such eloquent lyrics and musical tone I have to rate him. Furthermore the track 'Still' : Oh my, that swings completely in another direction and shows the diversity of the artist known as V. The baseline simply soothes the spirit and massages the soul while you just lay back, relax and savour the lyrical juices that accompanies it. Outstanding tracks.
