    As a debut album, Skin shows a lot of promise. Regrettably, Ephraim Lewis did not live to make another album. Reminiscent of Seal, Lewis produced catchy soulful pop music. Includes the jazzy minor hit "Drowning in Your Eyes" and the appropriately titled "Sad Song." Fine performances and nice understated production throughout. ~ Tim Griggs

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (8/20/92, p.53) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "..Lewis's amazing voice--technically impeccable, ringing with gospel and soul inflections--reaches time and again for the sublime.."
    Spin (8/92, p.84) - Highly Recommended - "..ignores cliches and captures deep, deep feelings with impressive style. Poised between retro and techno, [Lewis] just lets his emotions fly, ranging gracefully from a sultry growl to a sweet falsetto.."
    Entertainment Weekly (8/28/92, p.65) - "..Lewis has a flair for memorable and unexpected harmonies...SKIN documents the arrival of an artist who is anything but another fly-by-night love man with a sing-along hook.." - Rating: A-
