I'm 17 and most kids my age most likely know nothing of Sam Cooke but we also don't know we should love Sam Cooke because it's great artist like him that mediocre artist now sample. I was shown this album by my aunt who said I needed to hear something different and real, I listened to this album and couldn't stop listening to it. The production alone is beautiful and it takes you to a different place. There are so many different instruments used that just make everything feel good. Sam's lyrics are lyrics that you can relate to and learn from. He talks about everything from life to his girl getting taken from him by his best friend. This is an album that everyone should hear because Sam Cooke truly is a legend and this legend needs to be heard.
