If you like the music of Winans Phase 2 or even bands such as SOS Band, read on. Milton Wynne comes from a large family, many of whom - including both his pastor parents -appear on the CD. The sound can best be described as urban soul, with the usual mix of up tempo grooves and slow, slow ballads. For Jam & Lewis aficionados, the title track, Alright and No One Can Love Me hit the mark nicely, while Mainline contains a Milton rap AND a tasty Marcus Miller-esque bassline. Nice! Our Milton himself is a bit of an all rounder really, having written all the songs and played most of the instruments. He also sings a bit (with more than a nod to Fred Hammond), raps a bit and crops up in the production credits. His choir provide solid backup for the most part. At times they sound a little flat to these ears, but the overall impression is of a competent set. The only real problem is that R&B gospel albums like this one often tend to be somewhat predictable and even the inclusion of a couple of perfunctory remixes here doesn't really lift it.
