“Leslie Odom Jr. gives us all the heart with his self-titled debut release;
however, he still leaves us clamoring for more. In essence, Leslie Odom Jr.
cleverly introduces us to a void that we didn't even know we had. The appetite
of listeners are whetted for a second solo album, and we will rapturously listen
to these nine tracks on repeat until we get more morsels of vocal brilliance from
Leslie Odom Jr.”
