Anticipation is a 15-track debut CD by Jua, a new artist from Upper Marlboro, MD.  Sounding like a blend of Luther Vandross, Will Downing, Jr and Freddie Jackson, Jua takes a sensual approach to his music, resulting in a HOT album, with silky lyrics and vocal arrangements that make you pause and take notice.

Filled with emotionally intense love ballads like Vandross or Jackson and a sparse, "unplugged" musical style of Seal and Maxwell .  Andicipation clearly puts the focus on Jua's vocal prowess and the interesting content of his lyrics.  That being said, more variety in instrumentation would have, overall, been a plus, and would have made this "quiet storm" even more interesting.

Despite any criticism of the arrangements, this CD is a worthy introduction of Jua to the adult soul music world.  With eight awesome songs ("Higher," "Everytime," the title track, "Free Fall," favorites "Dream," "Lost Paradise," "Just Breath" and an excellent rendition of "That's All") Jua has staked his claim as a hot young artist to watch.

If you want to fall in love again with quality music and love ballads, Anticipation is a CD that you MUST add to your music collection.  Highly Recommended.
