Raphael Saadiq – The Way I See It

September 13, 2008

It’s a vision to craft something authentic that shows sublime love for a bygone era- and it’s a vision perfectly realised.

Vintage heaven in surround-sound. The strings, the percussion, the harmonies, arrangements, echoes, bass guitars and the conviction of it all… makes me straight up wanna fall in love right now.

Ray-Ray’s goin’ on like a legend.
