"The self-produced, seven track effort features collaborations with Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Miguel, Estelle) and Robert Glasper (winner of the 2012 Grammy Award for ‘Best R&B Album’).
When talking about JMR, his vocals usually get the most love and attention. And rightfully so. But once you’re finished being wowed by his amorphous, soulful voice, take a moment to appreciate the production and songwriting on Boyish. Minimalist R&B has been making waves for a few years, but JMR uses space purposefully rather than simply riding on a sparse trend. “Not Said Enough” says volumes in moments of only voice and piano before glowing with strings and percussion."
