Aloe Blacc's unique voice is fully developed and mature. There is a natural warmth of tone that wraps itself around the listener encouraging you to join in the musical celebration. On his vocal contribution to "Wake Me Up" Aloe Blacc found a sweet spot between country music and R&B. On "The Man" he confidently blends pop, hip hop, and R&B. A lush production of analog instruments by DJ Khalil brings back echoes of late 1960s pop-soul by groups like the 5th Dimension. When the backing chorus kicks in on the last third of "The Man," Aloe Blacc sounds like he is leading a triumphant union of past and present in song.
