Album Review

Leela James departs from Shanachie a second time and follows Loving You More, her tribute to Etta James, with an impressive synthesis of classic and contemporary sounds. The blend of styles on her fifth album is made evident immediately, with lead song "Who's Gonna Love You More" opening with a buzzing synthesizer quickly offset by a typically gutsy and assertive vocal from James. "Do Me Right" and "So Good" mix respectively hard and rattling drums with nostalgic touches to pleasing effect. Plenty of the album aims to please traditionalists, such as the title track, her best bare piano ballad yet. On the silky "Give It" and the hushed "Stay with Me," she dips into a softer, gritless delivery that suits her surprisingly well. Since the release of her 2005 debut, a duet with Anthony Hamilton seemed like only a matter of time. It finally comes to pass here on "Say That," something of a Philadelphia International throwback in which the two singers sound at ease with one another, like they go back decades. While the percentage of excellent material isn't as high as it is on James' two previous albums, Fall for You is an engaging release with some pleasingly unaffected twists.

Customer Reviews

Real Music

If we forgot what real music was about it, here it is! Thank you for reminding us about real R&B and the importance of elegance and timeless brilliance of a powerful voice! Cant wait for the entire album!

fall for you

This is REAL chills just listening to it!!!!!

Finally, True Talent!

Ms. James is truly one of today most shining stars in the world of music! While a lot of artist depend on the hooks and mixing to show case their "talents" , Ms. James's heart felt soulfulness shines through and will give chills to all who have even a small appreciation for true musical talent. Her voice is a stand out in the crowd of cookie cutter artist. Original and refreshing! Reminiscent of the great Billy Holiday and Etta James, Ms. James should not be passed by. Looking forward to much more to come!


Born: June 2, 1983 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Like almost all other musicians hit with the neo-soul tag, the primary inspirations of Leela James -- a gritty-voiced singer and songwriter born in Los Angeles, California -- dated no later than the late '70s; Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, and Tina Turner were regularly cited. Her debut album, very much a throwback affair, involved assistance from a range of noted studio rats from the fields of rap and R&B, including Kanye West, Raphael Saadiq, James Poyser, Chucky Thompson, and Wyclef Jean. The album,...
