With an alluring smooth-jazz backdrop to match his silken vocals, Kem captured many a heart on his bewitching debut, KEMISTRY. For his 2005 follow-up, simply titled ALBUM II, the Nashville native provides another set of enchanting soul torch songs, exquisitely produced by Kem himself. The result is an incredibly seductive record with winsome flutes and summery saxophones drifting in behind Kem's beguiling voice.
Kem opens ALBUM II by questioning the nature of love on "Find Your Way (Back in My Life)," and the entire record is an exploration of that familiar theme. Kem's take on love is multi-faceted and, at times, deeply tied to his connection with God, to whom he directly addresses two songs, "Heaven" and "Each Other." An unassuming spirituality winds its way through his R&B compositions in an organic fashion similar to Stevie Wonder's early 1970s output, and, fittingly, that legend drops by to lend his unmistakable harmonica to the breathtaking "You Might Win." ALBUM II serves as an admirable second outing for an emergent soul voice.
