Playlist: The Very Best of Charlie Wilson

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Trying a little harder than its generic packaging might imply, Playlist: The Very Best of Charlie Wilson kicks off with a 12" mix of the former Gap Band member's hit "Outstanding" before rounding up all the obvious highlights from the singer's solo career. His 1992 effort You Turn My Life Around is skipped but it barely fits with his much more successful later canon, which here is represented by the years 2000 to 2010. Old-school funk the hard-struttin' "Musta Heard" and grown-folks R&B the massive hit "You Are" mix with hipness at an Usher-level "My Girl Is a Dime" or "Shawty Come Back", while 21st century names like Justin Timberlake, will.i.am, T-Pain, and Jamie ...

Through it all, Wilson comes off as a more sensible and mature alternative to R.
