16 tracks of greatness.

I absolutely love this album. I had originally been introduced to this artist in Chicago where he won the Avant Grande Music Contest in 2007 which was sponsored by Starbucks and WXRT 93 FM. I saw one of his Starbucks gigs and my ears were treated to about 5 great original tracks and a handful of interesting covers. I'd gotten a copy of his EP which quickly found a permamnent home in my cd player. I was interested in seeing what a full on LP would have in store for my ears and I am glad to say that I am aurally pleased. Beyond the smooth and soulful voice of Dawen and the great production of his funk infused/R&B tracks, there is a great deal of intelectual and socio-concious heft that comes along with it. The first half of "American Me" deals with racial struggles in the U.S. I found myself bobbing my head to the bead whilst at the same time being moved and provoked by Dawen's lyrics. The entire album isn't all about social injustice, from track 9 on, Dawen gives the listener some great R&B love songs to jam to. Personal favorites on this album are "Wake Up" great song about representation, or rather misrepresentations of Asian's in media and society, "Put Your Swords Down", a beautiful pleaful ballad for peace, "Just You", great R&B piano ballad showcasing Dawen's vocals and heart, and "Get Enough" a wonderful fusion of Pop/R&B/and a touch of Jazz. Do yourself a favor and buy this album. Great music, great artist, great lyrics.

A Well Balanced Refreshing Album for the Ages

Hot, hot, hot! Dawen's album, "American Me" is amazing! It is refreshing to hear nice melodies, lush harmonies and thoughtful arrangements to go with well-written lyrics (such a rarity these days). What strikes me most about this album is it's ability to transcend atypical "labeling". Placed in the soul/R&B genre, I would go further and add funk, jazz, & classical to the mix of styles present on this album. In addition to regular pop appeal, "American Me" appeals to the audiophile for it's well constructed and well produced sound, musicians for it's artistry, and people of all races and ethnicities for it's universal message. Furthermore, the album is well-balanced, exploring not only themes of a political or socio-conscious nature, but personal as well including romantic, lament and redemption. Pick up a copy today and put it in your rotation. You're guaranteed to get a lot of mileage out of "American Me". I predict a timeless classic in years to come.

Love the music and lyrics

I'm not a fan of R&B/Soul, but this gem is so much more. It's so musical and the lyrics are powerful and full of meaning. It's worth getting the entire album.
