I don't know why I bought this record, I have absolutely no idea. But I'm glad that I did. Lathun doesn't have the best voice in the world, he doesn't have the best beats on his album, and he's not saying anything that the world hasn't heard before, but he's pretty good at everything. I'm not really into the whole neo-soul thing, really really deep music makes my head hurt, and I'm not smart enough to decipher the code jupiter/mars language that some of todays artists speak about (I mostly listen to reggae music), but Fortunate just does it for me. There aren't any bad songs or 'skippers', you can just push play and walk away. My favorite songs are the opener Love Won't Let Me In, When Love Came In with India Arie, BBQ, and my absolute favorite track Find Somebody Else, but like I said, I like all the tunes. Its the best r&b album that I've bought this year (I admit that I haven't bought many) its cool, relaxing and it can close the show in romantic moments, everything I look for in an r&b record. Overall, I say pick this one up, if you like current style r&b music then you'll probably like this one, if you like neo-soul, like I said, its not partcularly deep so you might not rate this one that highly, but it worked for me.
