Jamie Lidell - Multiply

Furthering ideas that Lidell threw down in his previous group Super_Collider, Lidell is a talented man. Where Super_Collider was largely an electronic album with very masked soul influenced vocals, Multiply see's Lidell striking out on his own and embracing his Soul flirtations to a new and exciting level. . Lidell's voice itself is just perfect for this kind of thing. Its construction in places is very much an electronic album, but the meat of it  is a soul funk record and it works well. Albums that followed this first effort just come out sounding too forced and contrived. Listen up :)
