In 2000, Bad Boy workhorse Carl Thomas finally got his opportunity to shine on his own and made the most of it with a soulful, diverse record, EMOTIONAL, featuring the platinum single "I Wish." Four years later, the youthful R&B singer/songwriter builds on his debut with the rich, sultry LET'S TALK ABOUT IT, an album perfectly built around his elastic, alluring voice, exploring soul from many angles and eras.
There's plenty of radio-ready, new-school soul, such as "She Is" (which opens on an imperial rap from old pro LL Cool J) and the lushly orchestral bedroom track "Make It Alright." Thomas shows he can turn a larger-than-life pop hook on the Luther Vandross-channeling "Dreamer," and proves he can hang with the neo-soul crowd on poetic tracks like "But Me." The eccentric, acoustic-guitar-driven "Rebound" bears a subtle Latin beat and unpredictable but undeniably sweet melody. Thomas is capable of just about anything, and despite possessing a powerful voice, he knows the value of restraint. Thomas comes into his own with his genuinely romantic, artful second album.
