This is the second recording for singer/songwriter Amani. With a bit of hip hop, soul, gospel and even rap, this album is full of love songs from a Biblical perspective that Amani wrote for his wife. Throughout the album, he shares stories of his relationship with her, including their first meeting, his marriage proposal, their wedding, birthdays, anniversaries and children. The CD starts with an intro that simply says, "I believe people still fall in love. It still happens. I believe people still fall in love. It can happen to you." Although it's nice to know that Amani is really grateful to have found the true love of his life, I'm not too sure about releasing these obviously private songs to the world. Am I supposed to be inspired? To be honest I find it hard to relate to some of his personal stories and feelings. Good music but thematically it's a little like the guy who comes back from his holidays and shows four hours of slides. Just proves you can have too much of a good thing! Conclusion: Amani loves his wife. NEXT!
