All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
It's doubtful that R&B will ever have another era as creatively rich as the '60s or '70s. There's too much working against it -- at least in the United States. Between the rigid, extremely tight formats of urban radio and the fact that major labels are so quick to drop artists before they have a chance to develop, modern R&B is bound to have an abundance of artists who go out of their way to be as generic as possible. That said, the situation is far from hopeless -- if it were, major talents like Alicia Keys, India.Arie, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Rahsaan Patterson wouldn't have broken through. Like those singers, Calvin Richardson has a neo-soul perspective ...

It's doubtful that R&B will ever have another era as creatively rich as the '60s or '70s. There's too much working against it -- at least in the United States. Between the rigid, extremely tight formats of urban radio and the fact that major labels are so quick to drop artists before they have a chance to develop, modern R&B is bound to have an abundance of artists who go out of their way to be as generic as possible. That said, the situation is far from hopeless -- if it were, major talents like Alicia Keys, India.Arie, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Rahsaan Patterson wouldn't have broken through. Like those singers, Calvin Richardson has a neo-soul perspective that owes something to classic soul as well as urban contemporary and hip-hop. 2:35 PM, Richardson's second solo album, isn't in a class with Patterson or D'Angelo's best releases; actually, it's mildly uneven and inconsistent. However, the CD's best tracks demonstrate that Richardson is capable of excellence when he puts his mind to it. The romantic slow jams on 2:35 PM fall into two main categories: radio-oriented tunes that have a strong Jodeci/K-Ci & JoJo influence with some R. Kelly-ish moves here and there, and material that is more old-school in its approach. The album gets off to an impressive start with "Keep on Pushin'," which recalls classic soulsters like Sam Cooke and Bobby Womack -- and Richardson is equally convincing on "Falling Out," "I Wansumo," and "More Than a Woman" not to be confused with the Bee Gees/Tavares hit of the late '70s. Unfortunately, 2:35 PM also has its share of material that is competent without being terribly memorable, but when Richardson does hit the mark, it is obvious that the R&B world should continue to keep an eye on the North Carolina native.

    How could we have missed this????

    Universal Records messed up when they let Calvin Richardson slip through. Now he's with Hollywood Records and his album is marvelous!!! He is so talented. His voice is soothing and the songs get into your soul. You can really feel the music. Every track on this album is great. And Calvin wrote 10 of the songs on the album and also produced some on the album. We have not seen the end of this great artist. You can also hear Calvin in his first album Country Boy, on the Deliver us from Eva soundtrack, and on Angie Stone's album on the track More than a Woman.

    I can't stop listening to this album

    Richardson's heartfelt album tracks and rich vocals make you want to listen to the entire album over and over again. MY favorite tracks are "Keep on Pushin", "Falling Out", "I've Got to Move", and "Your Love Is." This album is worth every penny and more.

    UNCONDITIONALUV

    I can and will go on and on about the wondrful voice of Calvin Richardson. His range and lyrics go so deep and beyond just the music. The words touch me from the moment he starts with a ummmmmmm mmmmmm. From Country Boy to 2:35PM HE JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER. Not only can he saaanggg...he has a heart of gold and friend indeed to those who know him personally. I must say he has come a long way and trully deserves the success and recongnition he is getting. To ask me my favorites..well I love all the songs..his voice just captures the essence of a word a verse a tune a melody WoW! the man can hold a note and reach into my heart and soul with his music...I wake up to it I go to sleep to it..and in between I just vibe to all the songs from Country boy's Nightmare" and Close my eyes duet wit Monifa..to the new 2:35pm..Keep on Pushin'...Calvin R..there is no other...no not like this! I love the verse..You ain't been told that your worth more than gold..(now you know) YOU ARE....thanks Cal the ladies needed that! He said it he WANSUMO and so do the fans.....Irreplaceable nothing can take your place!..See ya at "1 YOUR VOICE STAND ALONE
