Time Out says
Following in the footsteps of Prince, R&B crooner Miguel makes smooth, sexy music that doesn't shy away from allusions to the current political climate (not to mention the heat he's packing beneath those tight leather trousers). On War & Leisure, he juxtaposes carnal pleasures with global unrest—his sultry anthems invite listeners to unwind and enjoy themselves, but the specter of conflict and unease is always present. He may not be topping the charts, but Miguel's music stays unflinchingly true to his seductive vision. Soul singer Sir and Miguel's younger brother, who goes by the name Nonchalant Savant, open the show.
