Artist: LaMont Album: “Love Goes On” CD Review:
LaMont has a smooth silky voice and a way with an R&B groove. His singing has nice power and a nice range.
His songs are full of soul whether he is singing a ballad or lamenting his girlfriend not coming home. The songs touch on the many facets and stages of love, finding it, questioning it, losing it, missing it….and regardless the message is that love goes on.
There has been a lot of attention paid to details here in the production. Even though the arrangements sound looped and programmed, there isn’t an antiseptic feel. The vocal layering is rich and the grooves really do groove.
LaMont’s voice is the glue that holds it all together. It is the main instrument on each song. He and the co-producer Philip Trice made great choices on their attention to detail while at the same time keeping LaMont up front.
Fans of Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross and Seal will all find things that will please them in “Love Goes On”.
