Brit-soul stalwart Omar returns with his 8thstudio album in the shape of ‘Love In Beats’ – his first since the superb ‘The Man’ from 2013. Undeniably Omar in flavour the genre straddling vision is in evidence throughout ranging from the spacey, uptempo jazz-soul of ‘Vicky’s Tune’ (featuring Robert Glasper) to lush modern soul gems like ‘Insatiable’ (feat Natasha Watts) the stunning mid tempo dancer ‘Gave My Heart’ (feat Leon Ware) the warped broken-beat future soul of ‘This Way That Way’ and the summery, incognito-esq ‘Hold Me Closer’. The atmosphere filled ‘Grey Clouds’ and the skittering, full production of ‘Destiny’ also excel on a rock solid set. Welcome back, Omar

    With this album, Omar, continues his mastery of interesting beats and delectable collaborations. Thought provoking and inspirational I have played the album several times since it was delivered. With so much to hear in the music and lyrics, each time I listen I seem to pick up on nuances and melodic harmonies apparently overlooked in the previous hearing, leaving me thinking “this is good……very good” . Will ‘Love in Beats’ be regarded as a seminal album and receive public acclaim similar to Omar’s earlier albums, I don’t know? For me it’s a bit like staring at one of those magic paintings, some people will get it strait-away and for others like me, the more you stare the more you see. But if you like a syncopated beat, or are a lover of neo-soul, then after one listen you’ll be hooked.
