An album by Craig David

After laying down a memorable vocal onArtful Dodger's "Re-Wind," the biggest hit to date of the latest U.K.-spawned dance craze known as two-step, Craig David's debut record carries lofty expectations. Born out of the R&B/hip-hop and U.K. garage styles … see full wiki

'Born to Do it' could form a little growth.

Craig David's voice smoothly delivers a simple line which comes across buttery with his British accent. Craig David's debut album is a good showcase. To me not all the tracks are solid but nevertheless Craig David shows he has talent in abundance.

The singles `Fill Me In,' `Seven Days,' `Walking Away,' and the Artful Dodger collaboration `Rewind' are definitely the strongest songs on this album. This album doesn't contain all that many garage tracks, instead possessing more of a light R&B feel to it.

Some tracks like `Once In A Lifetime' and `You Know What' can get a tad bit boring for my liking, but the brilliant `Walking Away' and the Latin-tinged `Seven Days' display David's vocal dexterity at his best. `Fill Me In' is a catchy song with clever wordplay about how Mr. David gets it on with the girl next door. In "Follow Me," the sexy way he pronounces "to my bedroom" is enough to create Goosebumps down one's arm. `Rendezvouz' is a decent song that shows the flexibility in David's voice. `Bootyman,' `Can't Be Messin,' 'Round," are three track where David impresses his vocal speed which I feel he shouldn't do much of because it personally doesn't fit him.

I would actually give it 3.5 stars instead of 3 due to the various styles. This album is definitely a unique, fresh style of R&B, and is worth picking up even though it's a LITTLE-BIT incomplete ;)
