Hear: Dwele- “Greater Than One” (Album Review)
Written by: Khorry Lewis- August 27th 2012
The anticipated album “Greater Than One” by neo-soul artist Dwele has finally arrived. If you have followed Dwele’s previous albums you know what to expect with the smooth harmonies, tight baselines and subtle jazz horns, simply labeled Detroit soul.
When it comes to feel good music Dwele definitely holds down his fans giving them that mixture between hip-hop, funk, jazz and soul mixed into 13 tracks of pleasure. The ability that Dwele has in writing songs for both the male and female perspectives while painting the vivid picture of experiences we have all been through is what makes him a one of a kind artist. By displaying his relatable lyrics on each track and applying live horns to smooth out the sonically pleasing flow gives for a round of applause.
The overall album was very well put together with tracks such as; Greater Than One Less Than Three, What You Gotta Do ft Raheem DeVaughn, and Obey. Those are just a few songs that give the album a groovy yet sexual energy.
Dwele definitely opened the dynamics of love, lust class, and maturity while staying true to the Dwele we first fell in love with when hearing “Subject” and “Some Kinda”. Take a listen on iTunes and close out your summer with the smooth flow of real R&B soul.
