Sorry to come back to this but goddamn, "Crying." is a great song. I'm generally skeptical of neo-soul--so much of that shit is derivative. This is what I want my "neo-soul" to sound like. Moreover, I have fantasies of hearing this on Hot-97. Would love to see this break through to a "blacker" audience. I know, I know, it's always about race with me. Anyway,  what a great dance track--something very "Erotic City" about it . Were I ever at a party and this came on, I might murder some one. Seriously, I'm throwing elbows. For the unintiated, you can sample here. I'll be talking about this song more as soon as I figure out what it's about.
