G is the latest Pop CD put out by the extremely talented Gerald Levert who once again has delivered a brilliant collection of tracks. I'm confident Gerald Levert fans, and Pop fans alike will be pleased with this one.
This CD literally grabs your attention right out of the gate with Application (I'm Lookin' For A New Love) and doesn't let go until the very last note of the very last song These, which by the way is another great track.
Pop music fans will recognize some of the well known contributors on the project including Randy Bowland and Paul Pesco plus a few other notables as well.
Overall G is a solid release. Quite possibly Gerald Levert's best to date. Really sensational from beginning to end. If you're even mildly into Pop music you'll enjoy this CD.
While this entire CD is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 3 - Nothn' To Somethin', track 10 - Second Time Around, and track 13 - These.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Application (I'm Lookin' For A New Love). What a nice track!
