Although he suffers from undistinguished material, Uncle Sam's eponymous debut makes it clear that he is a promising contemporary R&B loverman. His husky yet smooth voice is seductive -- sort of like if Barry White could croon -- and he sounds good in the lush arrangements that dominate Uncle Sam. Unfortunately, he doesn't always have the songs to match his gospel-inflected delivery, but nevertheless, his singing demonstrates enough potential to make Uncle Sam a promising debut.
