Anthony Hamilton Comin' From Where I'm from
- Words: Edie Ahmeanit
- Label: SoSoDef
Charlotte, NC man Hamilton's first album, 1996's XTC, was unjustly ignored in the first, D'angelo/Badu-dominated wave of nu-soul, but forget all that. He's back, and this title track to his new album lets you know that he hasn't fallen off a bit as a singer/songwriter. With a voice that evokes both Bobby Womack and Donny Hathaway, Hamilton throws down a bluesy chronicle of hard times and worry over a prime '70s-era existential soul backing. You think you got troubles-get this single and check my man's acapella. It'll wrench the heart right out of you.
