  1. His singing throughout is flawless and expressive.
  2. 80
    The joyful arrangement in The Point of It All enhances Hamilton's storytelling abilities, serving as a lovely mixer to his lyrical depth and sensual, rich voice.
  3. At least a third of the album's contents would have to be part of any representative introduction to Hamilton. In fact, this puts a cap on a three-album run as remarkable as any other in 2000s R&B.
  4. The Point of It All's harder-edged 'Fallin' in Love' and 'Prayin' for You (Superman)' are the kind of stylistic change-ups he should consider throwing more often.
  5. He’s a contender in the secular realm of R&B who sings hooks for hip-hop songs between his own albums, and he’s determined to reach current radio audiences without jettisoning his roots.
  6. It's not exactly an exciting record, but it is comforting: a modest sound for chastened times.
  7. Hamilton attempts to resuscitate it with his warm voice, but the record plods on with one mid-tempo nodder after another.
