The Way I See It by Raphael Saadiq
Released: Sep 2008
Label: Columbia
If Sharon Jones adapts Stax's grungy soul, and Amy Winehouse makes it palatable for the Sunset Blvd. set, then Raphael Saadiq effectively photo-copies the stately swing of Motown's golden era. The best moments here ("Oh Girl" and "Love that Girl," among others) recall early Temptations, and Raphael obviously feels an affinity to the tight grooves and cooing harmonies of Eddie Hendricks and Co. Yes, this does feel a bit gimmicky, but Saadiq's ability to so accurately mimic a sound thought lost is admirable.
