Overview

For almost four decades, the LeVert name has been synonymous with quality, soulful R&B. Whether it's Gerald, Eddie, or Sean, the family name never fails to live up to a higher standard than most soul families. That's why Do I Speak for the World? is a nice return to form for the LeVert (the band) frontman's glory years. Too often his releases have been plagued with inconsistency and pandering to whatever fashionable R&B formula is hip at the moment. And while there are moments of faltering and filler laced in at times and the lyrical content hasn't left its safe harbor, his performances haven't been this consistently solid since 1998's Love & Consequences. The production is polished and ideal for quiet storm formats and the guest appearances that so often saturate a record like this are noticeably absent, with the only musical cameos coming from family statesman Eddie and a new generation of LeVert children, who are guaranteed to keep the LeVert name around for decades to come. An enjoyable listen and a fine return to form.
