One of the three members of the lauded PAJAM production team, Detroit-based singer/multi-instrumentalist J Moss (born James Moss) presents a sterling set of R&B-tinged gospel numbers on 2007's V2. Tracks on this assured collection range from lively, club-friendly tunes--most notably the beat-driven "Dance" with the renowned Kirk Franklin--to moving, faith-rooted songs--see "Know Him" with Karen Clark-Sheard--resulting in an album that easily appeals to both secular and spiritual music fans.
Vibe (p.130) - "V2 is brawny and dense....'Abundantly,' this album's most traditional song, is utterly beautiful."
