Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Stroke of Genius is separated from previous Gerald LeVert albums by its concept of painting your masterpiece with, yes, strokes of genius. Although such a slightly clever idea shouldn't be executed on a grand scale and some of the material here is underwhelming, LeVert still does convincing pillow talk and his voice is fine.

I love the entire album. Gerald Levert just gets better with time. My two favorite songs on the album are 'U Got That Love' and the duet with Tamia,'Close to You'.
