Angie Stone has always been neo-soul's resident grown-up, framing her rich, resonant voice in sensuous grooves with a decidedly vintage sheen. For her fourth album, however, the smoldering singer has gone more old-lady than old-school, doing her best soul-diva's-second-coming on these mellow, mature tracks about being in love and loving yourself. Why not? Stone is just as much a powerhouse as singers twice her age, and she proves it by holding her own with guests like Betty Wright and James Ingram. If you're yearning for some funk (plus savvy social commentary), check out "My People."
