Wanna Be Loved

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
Often compared to lover's rock king Beres Hammond, Glen Washington has built a steady career with smooth, mid-tempo songs of love and betrayal. The difference between these two crooners however,is that Washington's pleasant baritone never comes close to the richness or depth of emotion that Hammond is famous for. On "Wanna Be Loved," Washington continues down his tried and true path. He offers a nice collection of lovers rock reggae but with nothing outstanding. Although the opening track "Viper" is billed as the answer to his classic 1998 hit, "Kindness for Weakness," it lacks much of the heartfelt sentiments of its predecessor.

All Music Guide - Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
Often compared to lover's rock king Beres Hammond, Glen Washington has built a steady career with smooth, mid-tempo songs of love and betrayal. The difference between these two crooners however,is that Washington's pleasant baritone never comes close to the richness or depth of emotion that Hammond is famous for. On "Wanna Be Loved," Washington continues down his tried and true path. He offers a nice collection of lovers rock reggae but with nothing outstanding. Although the opening track "Viper" is billed as the answer to his classic 1998 hit, "Kindness for Weakness," it lacks much of the heartfelt sentiments of its predecessor. Fortunately, this disc does boast some highlights such as the contagious rhythms and peppy delivery of "Feel So Right" and the slinky melody that accents Washington's raspy vocals on "Roller Coaster Ride." There's also a solid rasta anthem, "Bring It On Home," which declares, "hate is not righteous/it's got to be wrong/truth and love has got to be strong." With 17 breezy tracks, Wanna Be Loved provides a good supply of reggae love songs and conscious lyrics to satisfy the average fan.
