About time reviewing one of my favorite artists. Not only he's an excellent vocalist, but also a virtuose bassist. This album features both of his forts and i'm wondering, why isn't he more popular? My guess, he doesn't compromise and is not commercial at all. On one hand he's a balladeer, on the other a funkateer, taking both to the extreme. Just listen to "Geek You Up", and you know why. How to classify that song? I would say P-Funk or extreme Funk, also illustrated by the title song "Slingshot". Awesome Funk contrasting with the rest of the album's ballads and soulful midtempo songs. Either you hate him or you love him, ignored by many and adored by few. I have all of his albums and absolutely love him. Michael, could you please pick up your bass, write a few songs, and Geek Me Up?
