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.

A hugely enjoyable album that looks backward while remaining utterly contemporary, The Revelation Is Now Televised is a must-listen for neo-soul fans.
