Album Review

Famous, Marques Houston's sixth solo album and first for Shanachie, is a little more D'Angelo and a little less R. Kelly than previous release Mattress Music. Almost all of the tracks involve newcomer producer and songwriter Immanuel Jordan Rich, who grants Houston a set dominated by mature slow jams. A few of the ballads are sleepy and nondescript. "Only You" gets the album off to a poor start; the lyrical quotes from Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" are so extensive that Houston seems as if he can't be bothered to add his own touch. The remainder, thankfully, is a little more creative and memorable. The easy-gliding falsetto showcase "Take Your Love Away," which ranks with Houston's best work, is the album's standout.

Great preview

Album is going to be crispy MH never disappoints

Classic!

This album has that soulful feeling I love. I'm glad to see him doing music the older crowd can vibe to.

Disappointed.

Why are all these songs being song in Falsetto? That's why I hated his last album. Don't get me wrong, I love MH and I'm a huge Fan, but I hate when he constantly uses sing in falsetto. I've been waiting for MH to drop an album for a long time and this is what I get.
