Finally picked this up today after being curious about his talents for quite some time. Having read much about his reputed ego and less-than-stellar previous efforts (by some accounts), I was skeptical. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised upon giving it a spin. Granted, it's rather derivative of such artists/bands as Sly (including a quasi-remake of Family Affair), P-Funk and Seal, but it's still enjoyable nonetheless. Nice variety of styles throughout the CD and some solid lines by TM. Anyone else snag/like this disc?
