We gave it a B+

There’s been much talk about the neo-soul movement these past few years, but journeyman singer-guitarist — keyboard player Neville has seldom been mentioned. More’s the pity, because the dude should rightfully be hailed as one of the genre’s prime movers. Maybe ”Scrape,” a potent blend of funky foot stompers and organically crafted R&B ballads, will set the record straight. Listen carefully and you may even hear a couple of Neville’s heavy friends (and ex-employers) in the mix — namely Bonnie Raitt and Keith Richards.
