CD Review: Marcus Singletary Is Still "Smokin'" On His New Album
The lead-off song, “Can It Be Real” draws some similarities to early Lenny Kravitz along with a more progressive approach, instead of a pop music approach. He brings out his soul music on “Meditate” before heading into the funk-style of “Get The Dance Gene.” The one cover song on the album is a great rendition of Bob Marley’s “Misty Morning.” The song still captures the message Marley was trying to portray, while Marcus makes this song sound like one of his own. Next, Marcus dives back to the sixties with “Psychedelic People,” which sounds as if he called upon The Fifth Dimension to lend a hand. The album closes with the fun, up-tempo sounds of “You Could Be Lucky,” ending the album on a high note.
