    Neo-soul diva Jill Scott is big on collaborations, and 2007's REAL THING: WORDS AND SOUNDS VOL. 3 is no exception. Leroy Hutson, for example, co-wrote four of the tracks here, while Adam Blackstone, Andre Harris, and Vidal Davis also pitch in on songwriting duties. But this is still Scott's show, a fact verified by her powerful, often smoldering vocal performances on every track of the album.
    For the most part, REAL THING is an album for lovers. "Come and See Me," for example, one of the album's highlights, is a slinky, silky ballad in which Scott breathes gorgeous yearning into the listener's ear. "Only You" is a smooth, head-nodding track that has the buoyancy of bed springs. Romantic, seductive, and executed with finesse, REAL THING reminds listeners that Scott is still holding her own in the neo-soul game.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Scott's music is more about groove and mood than song. But more than Maxwell or D'Angelo, she cares about words..."
    Vibe (p.98) - "Something's different about Jill Scott. There's a little more sass in her swagger, a lot more grit in her soul..."
    Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Jill Scott is fast becoming the voice of literate, female soul....It's a bedroom album, albeit an intelligent, challenging one."
    The Word (magazine) (p.102) - "Overall, tastefulness, musical smarts and confidence mixed with intelligence make this a fine addition to Scott's already splendid canon of stuff."
