專輯介紹

*全球兩千萬銷售節奏藍調/靈魂天王,睽違三年最新2CD巨獻
*葛萊美提名、靈魂列車獎得主,再現Marvin Gaye一輩浪漫美聲
*CD2網羅超過1小時現場錄音,收錄告示牌亞軍經典〈Back At One〉等歷年金曲,並重新演繹Michael Jackson、Nat King Cole不朽名曲。

當絕大多數的歌手迷失在鮮麗的舞曲節拍中,出道近二十年的Brian McKnight可說是自始至終遵循R&B的浪漫中心思想,將己身多樣樂器演唱才華與繁複黑人音樂曲式不斷改良推陳出新,成為一整個世代最為熟稔的性感標竿。三十歲上下的樂迷必定念念不忘當年那首告示牌亞軍代表作〈Back At One〉,即便至今也仍有許多後輩致敬翻唱,而一路堅持的融合當代爵士福音招牌聲響也讓Brian McKnight成為各大音樂獎項常客。新作《Just Me》可視為Brian對自己音樂生涯初衷的回歸標記,不僅慷慨奉上特大碗雙碟,還邀來兩個兒子Brian Jr.與Niko參與編曲和聲,如同開影分身似的威力加倍。

一按下PLAY鍵,迎面而來濃醇情挑氣息的〈Temptation〉,可說是靈魂樂傳奇Marvin Gaye金曲〈I Want You〉的續篇;接續的第一主打〈Fall 5.0〉則是標準城市夜晚配樂,車行於微光科技迷宮間,既清爽又深情;〈Without You〉明顯師法Stevie Wonder的和弦進行與合成器音效,玩興十足。此次包辦全碟創作的Brian還額外錄製一首George Michael金曲〈Careless Whisper〉,在鋼琴三重奏輕盈包覆下,羽絨般纖細的嗓音柔柔化開,堪稱佳作。再換上CD2,是長達七十分鐘的完整現場演繹,Brian僅憑一架鍵盤與炫耳唱功即能讓聽眾入醉,曲目不但囊括過往名曲,還驚喜翻玩Michael Jackson、Nat King Cole等天王經典作,穿插脫口秀與各種創意巧思,絕對是樂迷非收藏不可的R&B浪漫美學集錦!
