Album Review

Keeping a good thing going, Uncle Charlie follows the formula of the former Gap Band vocalist's previous release, Charlie, Last Name Wilson, which climbed to number ten on Billboard's album chart. First, there's the return of Wilson's biggest advocate, Snoop Dogg, on the uptempo two-stepper "Let It Out." Then there's the return of T-Pain as producer and, this time, vocalist on the feel-good "Supa Sexxy," the heavily Gap-influenced highlight that closes the album. "Shawty Come Back" sounds just like the previous effort's "So Hot" right up until the chorus, which cleverly updates Player's big hit "Baby Come Back" for the Lil Wayne generation. Lighthearted moments like this rule the album as Charlie falls instantly in love with every girl who passes by on "There Goes My Baby" or professes he "Can't Live Without You" by putting his woman above "a night at the club/or a hit off a blunt." The big difference here is that Charlie has taken the duties away from his last executive producer, R. Kelly, but with the Underdogs, T-Pain, and frequent Babyface collaborator Greg Pagani behind the boards, he's got all the help he needs.

Best Album

First of, this is Charlie's 4th solo album. Album titles: You turn my life around, bridging the gap, charlie last name wilson, and uncle charlie. This album is a perfect blend of old school charlie and new school charlie. I liked this album better than the rest. Before this album, I thought bridging the gap was his best effort. Charlie has a great voice and this album show cases it. If you want an album where the computer does the majority of the singing, don't buy this album. If you want an album that showcases a great singer who appeals to young and old, buy this album. This album is far from garbage. I do not normally write reviews, but this album is a shining star compared to the watered down albums that is out today.

Charlie is back

Always cw from the gap band till now. I recommend him for the slow and sexy nights.

The Vibe

I have to say I like the 80's vibe that he brought mainstream...something you can see yourself bouncing in club.....(Supa Sexxy) for the win!!!!!
