Picks and Pans Review: Gerald Levert
In My Songs
REVIEWED BY ERICKA SOUTER
Finished shortly before his untimely death at age 40 last November, this set of old-school slow jams earns Gerald Levert posthumous props. Unlike his peers, the bedroom balladeer longed for more than a booty call. "Deep As It Goes" promises it's not "just physical, girl, it's also spiritual, emotional," and his signature guttural baritone stirs the soul with the title track's lament "If I could only find the love I sing about." The uptempo "DJ Don't" is weak, but he picks up the pace nicely on the syncopated "Fall Back," making this a fine farewell from R&B's Teddy Bear.
