- "I Need a Dollar" was Aloe Blacc's big breakthrough -- a Top Ten single in several countries. He followed it up with Lift Your Spirit, his third album, which didn't rely upon the retro-soul sound of "I Need a Dollar," and instead embraced modern pop. Lyrically, the emphasis was on love affairs, while "Soldier in the City" was socially conscious. On "Love Is the Answer," he collaborated with Pharrell Williams.
Rolling Stone - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A set of hooky soul-pop tunes layered with folk-tinged acoustic elements."
