Allen Stone would make viewers of The Voice flip out: a silky, buttery smooth voice, full of Stevie Wonderisms, emitting from a goofy, bespectacled white kid from Washington State. His lite-funk songs are totally hit and miss, sometimes hitting their mark and sometimes landing squarely in John Mayer cheeseville. NED LANNAMANN
