New music critique artist Gussie Miller has a versatile voice that impresses us, mainly on the higher notes, and he wisely feeds that strength in his recordings. “What More Can I Say” (with its Stevie/Prince funk groove) and the playful “Wantin’ You” (with its icy keyboard tones) show a distinct ‘90s influence, especially in the latter’s rap interlude. A crafty writer, Miller deploys deft bridges and key changes that add dimension along with an occasional horn solo. But it’s the gospel powered “The Arms of Love” that really moves us, gives us goosebumps, in fact. Here Miller takes you to church, but with universal lyrics that avoid preachiness and embrace a powerful vision of love’s triumph over loneliness. Whew, just beautiful.
