The debut album from Houston's Pru is an overlooked classic from neo-soul's turn-of-the-millennium heyday. Her voluptuous and velvety voice is hypnotizing on "Candles," and on a loose reinterpretation of Smokey Robinson's "Tracks of My Tears." From the gospeldelic "Hazy Shades" to the sangria soul of "Smooth Operator," the album covers a lot of ground.
