The album got mostly positive reviews from the music critics, it was sad that the addition of so many experienced and renowned producers had certainly helped in increasing the charm of the album. It was also said that the songs written by the different song writers were pretty good and had catchy lyrics.
Legend’s voice came out to be naturally strong not missing any note in any region of the songs. His power full voice had created a nice and romantic effect through the songs in the album. The romantic, ballad, and soft tracks had the magical topping of the singer’s voice throughout the album. The music was exceptionally good and was the major reason behind the success of the album.
Although the album is newly released but certainly has gained a lot of favor from the critics and the fans as well it is Sais that the singer has started working on his upcoming fifth album and that would be greater than this one.
Till than we have this awesome sound track to make our time better and to flow with its unseen emotions. The tracks have a nice pace except two of the tracks in the album which are slower ones and put the best part at aside.
