Reseña de álbum

Being labeled and marketed as a blues musician was never really a good fit for Keb' Mo'. True, he first came to the attention of most when he came out of Compton playing Robert Johnson songs on a National Steel guitar, and that’s how his recording career started, but this is a guy who used to be a staff songwriter for A&M Records, so he has always had plenty of pop, soul, R&B, and jazz in his kit bag and, truth be known, he’s really closer to an artist like James Taylor than he is to Howlin’ Wolf. His new album, The Reflection, the first on his own Yolabelle record imprint (he also self-produced the album) after several releases with Sony, has nothing on it that could be called blues, and nothing that even really comes close. It’s a calm, easy, and mellow mixture of adult pop, urban soul, and very light funk, but then Mo' has been flirting with this kind of thing for a couple of albums now and it’s clear that this is closer to what he’s all about than being a blues preservationist — which he really never was in the first place. The sound on this release is crisp and warm, smooth as honey, and never jarring, as Mo' muses on love and its difficulties in different settings, his vocals full of sincerity and good will. It’s all as pleasant as an easy summer afternoon, which is both a strength here and a problem. Nothing about The Reflection has an edge of any sort and as song after song rolls by, it gets lulling, and only a handful of the songs immediately stand out, most notably “We Don’t Need It,” a timely song about a man who loses his job and has to come home and tell his family, and “Crush on You,” which features guest vocals from India.Arie and has a charmingly light and innocent groove to it. A version of the Eagles' “One of These Nights,” which features alto sax from Dave Koz, also stands out, but not for the right reasons. Mo' has turned the song, which was fueled by the feeling of desperate lust in the original Eagles version, into a gentle song of yearning, and while the lyrics and melody still work in a more relaxed setting, the song really doesn’t generate the edge it needs to truly resonate. Keb' Mo' never was Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, or Muddy Waters, but he isn’t quite James Taylor yet, either. The Reflection is a warm outing, and it’s easy to like the sound of it, but all smooth honey makes one hungry for something with a little bit more of a kick to it now and then.

Disappointing

I wanted this cd badly. I bought it as soon as it was available Monday night. It put me to sleep. Each time I have tried to listen to it, I get bored and switch to the new KWS CD which is much better. The problem I have with Keb's music of late is that he appears to be attempting to be an R&B singer. The problem is that he has little range and tired phrasing which ultimately makes many of his songs sound the same.

I do miss the days when he primarily played the acoustic blues music that put him on the map. I don't begrudge him for "growing" beyond his roots, but I don't think he has the talent to pull it off. I would make the transition with him if he did.

This is coming from a fan who has purchased everyone of his CDs and has gone to many of his shows. This is not the opinion of a hater. I yearn for the days of perpetual blues machine, just like you and dangerous mood.

If you love his first 3 albums, then think twice before purchasing this. If you love the Peace album, then this may work for you. It sounds pretty much the same to me.

If you like Jazz, you'll love this.

I am a hard core Keb Mo fan. I have everything he's ever done (well, as much as I can find at least.) I was very excited for this album to come out, and I hate to say it, but I'm disappointed. The lyrics are amazing, as usual. His voice is perfect, as usual. But the music behind all of that is very...early 90s. It sounds very jazzy and not as much bluesy. I don't prefer it. It will perhaps grow on me as I listen to it, but on day one, I'm bummed.

The Reflection

Love Keb Mo and love this new album!! I've listened to it all day and it just is wonderful- almost as good as seeing him in concert!
