Part of Elliott Yamin's charm lies in how he doesn't seem to belong to his time. A disciple of Donny Hathaway (and to a lesser extent, Stevie Wonder), Yamin never felt comfortable in contemporary threads, whether it was during his time on American Idol or afterward, when he cut his eponymous first album in 2007. That record was perched between his classicism and flirtations with contemporary R&B, but its 2009 successor, Fight for Love, tips the scales decidedly in the favor of aggressive modern flavors, a shift perhaps tipped off by its combative title. Moving in this direction only makes sense -- in order to make records, he has to sell records, and to do that he has to have songs that sound like the times. Yamin remains an ingratiating presence, possessed with a natural, almost accidental charm that's so endearing that it's hard not to wish that he was in warmer surroundings than these.

Elliott Yamin's sophomore cd is an absolute must for young and old. The music is incredible. His ability to relate finding love, losing love and a song written to his mom are wonderful to listen to or even sing along with. The word needs to get out on this cd

Great selection of songs. Liked it a lot. Wanted to hear more. Wouldn't expect anything else from Elliott Yamin.

The wait is over! Elliott delivers a solid sophomore album with songs that will appeal to R&B, Pop and AC fans alike.

If you thought his first CD was good, just wait til you hear his latest release. Elliott proves time and time again that when you got it , you got it. They don't call him "the voice" for nothing. This is what music should sound like . Check out Fight For Love, Know Better (my fav ) and you'll soon have some fav's of your own.

Most artists create "One-Hit Wonders", total flame outs. One song dazzles and the rest are fodder. Elliott Yamin avoids this malady, but in the extant album, he risks getting "My Favorite Elliott Yamin Tune Award". All songs in the "Fight for Love" disc are equally good--an amazing feat! Nay, perhaps all dazzle. No one song stand out above the others. Ergo, Elliott Yamin is not a one-hit wonder artist. Congratulations!

Elliott Yamin is my favorite American Idol contestant of all time. I loved his first CD and this one is even better. I hope he keeps on making more.
