iTunes Review

John Legend is an artist mature beyond his years. He is a crooner in the best possible sense of the word — self-assured, gentle and debonair. For Legend’s sophomore album Kanye West resumes his role as executive producer, but Once Again is a mellower affair than Get Lifted. The songs get their gentility from Legend’s low, cocoa-smooth vocals, which never fail to bring a potentially hyper song to a place of calm. Though Once Again features an impressive assembly of producers — including Craig Street, and West (all contributed multiple songs) — Legend is wholly in control of the album’s tone and tempo. The hip-hop underpinnings are balanced by the elegant jazz of “Again” and “Maxine.” “Where Did My Baby Go” is so simple that it feels timeless — it could be a piece of an old album by Arthur Alexander or even Joan Baez, made new again by Legend’s warm breath. “Save Room” is a song that glides so sweetly and effortlessly that it challenges every shred of malice that might be lurking within the listener. Even sweeter is “Slow Dance,” a melody as compact and pretty as a jeweled pocketwatch.

Does it Once Again

Get Lifted was beautifully crafted and now Legend is back with his sophomore album, Once Again. Save Room: The sexy lead single is nicely done, with production help from Will.I.Am it is a relaxful track. 4/5 Heaven: Legend glides smoothly over Kanye's uplifting production. 4/5 Stereo: More upbeat track, it was okay. 3.5/5 Show Me: One of my favorites, deep and slow as the hook is nicely fitted with production. 4.5/5 Each Day Gets Better: Nice track, that is similar to "Heaven" in style. 4/5 King & Queen: Average track. 3/5 P.D.A. (We Just Don't Care): Great vibe, piano and stings are excellent. 5/5 Slow Dance: Okay track, Will.I.Am assits. 3.5/5 Again: Nice track, his singing takes the spotlight. 4/5 Maxine: Uptempo, okay track. 3/5 Where Did My Baby Go: Good track, with some nice drums. 3.5/5 Another Again: Average track. 3/5 Coming Home: Great ending, beautiful track. 4.5/5 Legend is a lot more focused, with less hip hop influence, this album is a musical ride, that you will love. Rating 9 out of 10

Amazing, beautiful and perfect.

John has done it once again, but this time it's even better. John Legend's voice, lyrics, style and music is breath of fresh air in a music industry that has dramatically declined and an age of music that no longer fosters originality and quality. I simply can't stop listening to this album. It has become one of my favorites. I truly believe that 'Each Day Gets Better' is the best track on the album despite the success of the single 'Save Room'. This album is absolutely enjoyable from the very first second to the last. Once Again is what R&B and Soul was like a long time ago and what it should be like today. John is our modern day Marvin Gaye.


I have no favorites. That's because this album is excellent beyond words. Legend is a true artist, and his talent is not wasted!

Grammy- and Academy Award-winning R&B singer, songwriter, and pianist John Legend, born John Stephens, was a child prodigy who grew up in Ohio, where he began singing gospel and playing piano at the age of five. Stephens left his home state at 16 to attend college in Philadelphia, and it was there that he first found a larger audience. Not yet out of his teens, Stephens was tapped to play piano on Lauryn Hill's "Everything Is Everything," a Top 40 hit for the Fugees member's 1998 album The Miseducation...
