All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rebounding from the mess of his divorce from Halle Berry -- and the ensuing Hurricane of an album -- Eric Benet returns to what he does best on Love & Life: making music for love-making.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rebounding from the mess of his divorce from Halle Berry -- and the ensuing Hurricane of an album -- Eric Benet returns to what he does best on Love & Life: making music for love-making.

Such quiet determination turns Love & Life into effective mood music -- something that might fall apart under close listening, but it was never intended for such scrutiny anyway.

    Fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love it! Love It! Love it! I purchased the CD when it came out, and except for Christmas, it has been the only thing I've been listening to. I can't recommend it enough; in fact, I'm listening to it now!
