    Where Hamilton's past albums have lured in listeners with their slow, sensual pull, Back To Love grabs them outright with the soul man's punchiest, most immediate batch of songs yet.
  2. 91
    Back to Love is as solid as any of his previous six albums, but its high points are the three tunes ­co-produced by Babyface.

    On Back to Love, Hamilton splits the difference and delivers a carefully calculated amalgam of soulful rawness, after hours sophistication and pop sheen that feels far more organic than it has any right to.

This record was disappointing though and he lost what I used to love about his music. Even the singles/leaks of this album were disappointing to me-but still gave it a listen. Surely a decline from Aint Nobody Worrin and even from The Point of it All. But I am sure the ladies will like the soulful love ballads he has littered this album with. Full Review »

    I got into Anthony Hamilton with "Ain't Nobody Worryin'," which has made it difficult for follow ups, plus "Comin' From Where I'm From" toI got into Anthony Hamilton with "Ain't Nobody Worryin'," which has made it difficult for follow ups, plus "Comin' From Where I'm From" to live up, but this is an excellent new set. Stronger than "The Point of It All" this record is loaded with medium to strong hooks draped in beautiful harmonies and textures with heartfelt lyrics delivered sincerely and soulfully. Lovin' it. I recommend the Deluxe version; the four additional tracks are as strong as the strongest material on the normal version. Full Review »
