Album Review

Rebounding from the mess of his divorce from Halle Berry — and the ensuing Hurricane of an album — Eric Benet returns to what he does best on Love & Life: making music for love-making. Slow and sultry and steeped in Stevie, Marvin, Luther, and especially Quincy Jones-produced Michael Jackson and Prince's forays into quiet storm, Love & Life is a consolidation of Benet's strengths as a seduction artist.

Such quiet determination turns Love & Life into effective mood music — something that might fall apart under close listening, but it was never intended for such scrutiny anyway.
