  1. Had he been born a few decades earlier, he could have been a major pop sales force. For now, he'll have to settle for making music that transcends today's commercial rules.

    Raheem's album is a breath of fresh air. It is a tribute to the timeless artists that have come before him while simultaneously offering something completely original and soothing. It is as if he provides the fix that us music junkies have been longing for. Hand's down... Raheem is the sh*t! Full Review »

    I recommend it. It's not the best album around but it sure has a fine melody with some good messages.

    Raheem DeVaughn's Love Behind The Melody certainly begins wonderful, then goes downhill after the second song and just is dull and awfully beated music to listen to. I have a good taste in music, and this one has no taste. All it does good is that the message Raheem delivers in each song is outragous and enormously brilliant. It sounded like he put a lot of thought into each dull boring song he wrote. It was well worded, but needed more paint to fill in the blank spots. And trust me, this album could've used a hell of a lot more paint to fill in a lot of those obvious blank spots. Full Review »
