"It's unfortunately seldom that I purchase a CD that is completely satisfying and enjoyable from start to finish, but THIS album is one of those rare finds. Despite his young age, Elan boasts a rich voice that rings of a seasoned reggae master that's been around forever.
The title track, "Together as One" is soulful and melodic, with unique guitar accents that lend it a distinct flair. "I Wanna Yell" is a fantastic, inspirational anthem reminiscent of Bob Marley and the Wailers at their best. The tunes where Elan partners with other artists are high quality ("Girl" featuring Asassin, being the best of the collaborations) but it's Elan on his own where he shines the brightest. The raunchy, thumping "Feel My Pressure" showcases his diversity, and the Latin-esque 1st track "Nothing is Worth Losing You" is simply amazing.
Elan is a phenomenal talent and the first day I listened to this album I knew it would be amongst my favorites for a long time to come. The creations here are so welcoming, so genuine and so GOOD that with each play you feel like you're listening to a classic in the making."

"Elan's voice is golden, particularly in the first song, Nothing is Worth Losing You, and in the title track Together As One. The song Together As One instantly became my new favorite song. In my opinion, it is as good as any Bob Marley song in existence and that is saying A LOT!!! Extraordinary, Elan. Thank you."
I've been waiting so long for this release!

"I saw Elan in concert when he collaborated with Khaled, KC Porter, Don Was, Walfredo Reyes, etc, last year. I was blown away and have been waiting for this album ever since. His raspy voice is completely captivating and absolutely pitch perfect. I wish the music was a little more raw and a little less "techno" in some places, but I'm amazed at the diversity of the album. Each song has such a different vibe that it plays almost like a compilation album. Only complaint - I wish that I'm In Love w/ You Girl and Slave to Love (f/Stefani) were included."
