Sketches of a Man
Released: Jun 2008
Label: eOne Music
Detroit soul man Dwele's third album, Sketches of a Man, sounds soft as silk but hits hard as nails, and the light production lets his honest lyrics shine. Dwele's dealings in love -- lust and loss included -- are emotional but not overwrought. "Free as a Bird" delivers a cool and collected coup de grace to an ungrateful lover. Lead single "I'm Cheatin" is a labyrinth worth a few listens. "If You Want To" is a plea/cordial invitation to a gone-but-not-forgotten ex. Super-funky "Workin' on It" -- sung over the eponymous J Dilla Donuts cut -- is too legit to quit but leaves you hanging at only 1:18.
