    One of the most soulful sounding voices out there today, I love his style. 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. Collapse

    Garbage of the highest order. The acting is poor, production sloppy and I think the casting is completely bizarre,. I would rather sit in a dentists chair all afternoon that sit through this shameless farce.

    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" 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. Expand

    There could be some discomfort initially, but it's equally likely R&B fans who give Back to Love a shot will soon have it stuck in their rotation, learning to accept the quirks of its lesser tracks and falling more and more for its standouts.

    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.

    In spartan tracks that evoke but never imitate Al Green and Teddy Pendergrass, Hamilton whispers offers of courtly behavior he says would make Oprah jealous.
