The onetime barber and backup singer is a late bloomer steeped in the conversational soul of Bill Withers and Bobby Womack. He avoids slavish retro-ism with a smart mix of programmed beats and churchy keyboards, and a voice that bridges seduction and gospel fervor. Though Anthony Hamilton sings about adult relationships with nuance and intensity, there is a drawback: He tends to keep his pleas at a midtempo simmer. The Point of It All‘s harder-edged ”Fallin’ in Love” and ”Prayin’ for You (Superman)” are the kind of stylistic change-ups he should consider throwing more often. B
