i dunno the right words to use. but a Neo Soul record needs to at least attempt to evoke that 'warmth' heard on 70s Soul/R&B records. w/o that it's not Neo Soul. it's something else.

most of Sons of Soul is too cold and clean to be Neo Soul. it's too shiny. i like the album quite a bit so this is no diss. but that feeling is why i can't classify that album as a Neo Soul record.
