About the Album

A quick glance through the thank you section of Eric Benet's new album Hurricane, and one senses a great album before even hitting play. Kudos to super producers David Foster and Quincy Jones, along with praise for the chief musician, God, set the stage for a powerful collection from a truly underrated singer/songwriter.

Hurricane grabs hold of the emotional side of the brain from the very first track, the acoustic driven "Be Myself Again," and doesn't let go until long after the final note fades. A soulful writer, Benet touches upon matters of the heart throughout the 14-track disc. The title cut deals with the devastation that comes when the storms of life level everything around us and threaten to destroy our sanity as well. Benet, who went through a very public and painful divorce during the making of the album, pours it all out on this song.

"India" is a beautiful number written for the singer's daughter. Benet's love for his little girl shines through in the lyrics. The piano and string doused "Still With You" could have been written with Benet's daughter in mind, or maybe a past lover who still haunts him. Benet pushes his voice into a falsetto on the song and opens the emotional tap all the way. "Pretty Baby" is a slinky R&B number that finds Eric asking the woman he loves why she gives herself away to men who could never feel for her what he feels.

The horn-doused "Where Does The Love Go" and the piano ballad "My Prayer" deal with the fallout that comes after a once passionate relationship explodes into a million pieces. The springy "In The End" treads Keb' Mo' territory; Benet finds comfort from his personal pain in the arms of God. "Making Love" is a sultry track that oozes soul. Benet lands in a good place and desires nothing more than to make love to and with his new flame for the rest of his life. The gushing continues with "I Wanna Be Loved," a slow moving track that is as radio-friendly as it gets.

"It's about the human condition; about how we all find ourselves in dark times and about how we can find our way out again," says Benet regarding the emotional songs that make up his latest album. A journey of self-discovery and healing, Hurricane is one musical storm that will be welcome with open arms.
