Evolver

Evolver

“Lots of R&B dudes promise opulent nights of ecstasy, but Legend is so classy that these fantasies seem like real journalism.”

Rolling Stone Review

So John Legend is back with a new string of baby-making tunes in this new LP, Evolver. As the name suggests, he tries to evolve from the usual soothing signature style into a different path which is more electronic and sadly, “mainstream”.

I don’t quite fancy Evolver, to be honest.

Sure, the Grammy-nominated Green Light (feat. Andre 3000) is worthy of a listen and Legend’s bet with reggae on No Other Love (feat. Estelle) is one dreamy tune (especially when he sings “Gimme gimme oh so much, turn me on, turn me on.” LOL)

But tunes like Can’t Be My Lover is downright dreadful (Reggae at its worst!), and Good Morning is just way too corny. Well of course I do corny, but chirping birds, seriously?

Somehow it’s just too evolved that it doesn’t really sound like him. Piano rosak ke bang?

But as forgettable as it may sound, his husky crooning can still melt even the stoniest of hearts. Hehe. I am slowly getting the hang of Evolver, and now I can’t stop singing to Cross The Line (You’ve been my best friend, can we put this to bed then, tonight’s the night to cross the line – breaking the number one rule of romance – never sleep with your best friend!!!!!!!!!).

Come rain or shine, I’m still a fan. ♥

If You’re Out There

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman, calling every man
We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we’re already late

We’ve been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody
Searched for someone to lead
We’ve been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same
Then go on and say

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
Now, now

No more broken promises
No more call to war
Unless it’s love and peace that we’re really fighting for
We can destroy hunger
We can conquer hate
Put down the arms and raise your voice
We’re joining hands today

Oh I was looking for a song to sing
I searched for a leader
But the leader was me
We were looking for the world to change
We can be heroes
Just go on and say

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
Now, now

If you’re ready we can shake the world
Believe again
It starts within
We don’t have to wait for destiny
We should be the change that we want to see

If you’re out there
Ooooh
If you’re out there
And you’re ready now
Say it loud
Scream it out

If you’re out there
Sing along with me
If you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud
If you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now

If you’re out there
If you’re out there
If you’re out there

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman, calling every man
We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we’re already late

P/S : The love of my life John Legend, performed this new single at the recent 2008 Democratic National Convention. The message is loud and clear, innit? (do apply to the current local politics, if you wish 😛)

And Johny baby has never failed to warm the cockles of my heart, <3<3<3
