>Josh Turner, Your Man Turner seems to have really found his place in the continuum of country music on his very satisfying second album. His great, floorboard-rattling voice truly makes him the man.

Jaheim, Ghetto Classics Showing much love for the street, the R&B crooner comes across as a ghetto-fabulous Luther Vandross. His third CD boasts a classic-soul vibe with lush production that recalls the ’70s Sound of Philadelphia.
