The Will to Live

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Leo Stanley
On his third album, Will to Live, Ben Harper strengthens his populist folk with a grittier groove, which even borders on funk, that makes his music more immediate. Harper still has a tendency to preach, yet his melodies are catchier than before, and he has a better sense of rhythm, helping his bluesy songs catch hold.

    Talent

    You cannot say anything about Ben Harper, other than that he is one of the most talent singer/songwriters ever. Coming out with four albums over the course of a decade may seem pretty long, but each one has perfect precision and every song can't be beat. I have every one of his album's including live ones and he is by far my favorite artist. I highly recommend any of his albums.
