Good Things marks a shift in methodology from personal to political for Aloe Blacc, who refers to the project as his report on present conditions - the misappropriation of wealth, pillaging of resources, a universal lack of compassion, and the struggle to survive.Ethereal production from Truth & Soul s Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman mask a foreboding undercurrent in which Aloe Blacc crafts thought provoking lyrics. Nowhere is this more evident than on lead single I Need A Dollar - theme for HBO s How to Make It in America. The first generation American offspring of Panamanian parents, Aloe has become what writer-activist Amiri Baraka once said of John Coltrane: He is a singular scope of feeling...a more fixed traveler who has found cohesion in art and life. The path from his debut Shine Through (2006) to Good Things is akin to the maturation of Marvin Gaye between That s the Way Love Is and What s Going On. The two are companion pieces in that they show who the artist is, what they stand for, and define the soul music of their time.
Now is the third studio album by American R&B and neo soul musician Maxwell, released August 14, 2001 on Columbia Records in the United States. Following the lukewarm radio success of his previous album Embrya (1998), Maxwell felt more comfortable with his artistic direction for Now, which does not exhibit his previous work's conceptual style. The album sold over 296,000 units in the U.S. in the first week, according to SoundScan, to earn him his first-ever number one album.
