Album Notes
In a sample of what this reviewer hopes will result in a full album, the EP “Atta Boy” by Chris Anthem is a strong debut of a cross-over pop and contemporary R&B artist.

The first track, “Get It (Like That)” is more catchy than many recordings of this genre on the radio in recent memory. On the next cut, “My Boo,” breathiness and throw-back melodies come to mind. A comparison to early 90’s Mariah Carey could be made, while not taking away from Chris Anthem’s own take on a downright sexy and intimate song. The next record follows the vein of the second, and keeps the album flowing velvety smooth. Even more intimate by track three, listening to “Atta Boy” is like slowing getting to know a new lover. Track four changes pace with a touch of melancholia as we reminisce about a love lost: "Pretending that you need me, then you leave my by myself. You wanted me so bad but now you're with somebody else.” We’ve all felt this, but it doesn’t sound trite at all, instead it feels like a genuine experience. The dénouement of “Atta Boy” is a cover of Eric Clapton and Will Jennings’ “Tears in Heaven”. A tough cover to do, I was left with nothing but goose bumps and the need to hit the repeat button. The intensely emotional lyrics work well with Anthem’s voice, and the lo-fi sound fits well to make a great end note. I’m sure I wouldn’t be alone in hoping and anticipating a full length album from a talent like Chris Anthem.
