I got Evolver in the mail last week. Yes, I'm old school, I still want the entire CD vs. just the MP3s that I like.
At first listen, it's pretty hot. Songs I'm feeling It's Over, Green Light, Take me Away and Good Morning. All hotness. I'm torn on Quickly: love the message, not in love with the squealing delivery. Some of these other joints (Everybody knows, This Time, Satisfaction) have a real Alicia-Keys-you're-depressing-the-hell-outta-me-vibe.
Side note: When is it appropriate to listen to Alicia Keys as of late? Not at home, not in the car, not commuting, not at the club... it's funeral music really.
Anyway back to John. Unlike Get Lifted, I'm not in love. But just like Once Again, I have a feeling it'll grow on me and I'll fall in love. I'm about to listen to it about 20 times and I'll let you know after it's tattooed to my brain.
I love this man's voice!!!
Do you have Evolver? What do you think about it?
