Editors’ Notes

In an interview, Eric Roberson said that the title for his 2007 album LEFT came from his feeling that other artists had “left behind” key elements in music: specifically, sincere love and respect for music and musicianship. While a lot of R&B performers seem to simply play the roles the public expects of them, Roberson has a relatable presence. The integrity he shows in his music is matched by his lyrics' sincerity. The love expressed in “The Baby Song” doesn’t seem like an obligatory put-on for R&B fans; it feels earned and from the heart. The naturalism and open-heartedness Roberson expresses keeps his music from becoming soggy or schmaltzy; the hip-hop-inflected beats of “Been in Love…,” “If I Had a Chance," and “Evening” are impressively crisp. One of Roberson’s other tricks is to invest his music with the richness and texture of jazz without seeming pretentious; “Pretty Girl,” “Open Your Eyes," and “Couldn’t Hear Her" incorporate jazz elements while remaining earthy and hypnotic.

The Truth

I listen to alot of music. This CD is a no Skipper! None of the songs sound the same and this is pure music. Get your a copy before everyone starts the band wagon.

A must have

Mr Roberson does it again. It is another great album by Eric. If you heard his stuff before, do not wait to get this. If you never heard his stuff, what is taking you so long.

Neo-soul at it's best

It is so refreshing to be able to listen to a cd without skipping tracks. Eric Roberson's LEFT takes you on a journey that explores relationship up's, down's and all the stuff in between. Buy this CD you wont regret it.
