- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: BBE-Rapster
I'm gonna toss all the nu/neo/new prefixes and call this one simply a soul album. God Given is full of sweet harmonies and instantly memorable melodies all in service of Siji's gorgeous tenor. Though his high 'n' tight vocal style recalls Al Green, Siji has written a thoroughly modern album, neither retro nor derivative. From sultry slow jams like "Heal" to loping mid-tempo gems like "Running Away," God-given is a true gift of soul.
