Conquer

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
After four years off, R&B singer Carl Thomas returned with "Don't Kiss Me," a stupendous and nostalgic single that suggested his iffy days were over. The album it lands on is, in true Thomas fashion, a mixed bag, with an epic yet ultimately empty title track that stately suggests "conquering" women is what the man does best.

Material-starved fans craving his rich, warm, and velvety delivery should ignore all these minor complaints and plunder at will.
