ALBUM REVIEW: Ne-yo – Non-Fiction

Artist: Ne-yo Album: Non-Fiction Release Date: 1.27.15 Ne-yo’s sixth studio album isn’t something to be taken lightly. The R&B star returns with one of his most versatile and impressive projects to date. I gotta admit, I’ve slept on this for a few weeks but I finally took the time to really listen and the amount of tracks I can keep in rotation surprised me. I mean, let’s be honest: Ne-yo lost a lot of us along the way in the name of...

ALBUM REVIEW: Candice Glover – Music Speaks

Artist: Candice Glover Album: Music Speaks Release Date: 2.18.14 American Idol alum Candice Glover showcases the big vocals that made her the 12th season winner on her debut album, Music Speaks (in stores now). Now if you’re reading this and had no idea this album was even out, well, such is the curse of winning a television singing competition. American Idol would probably fare better in ratings (as well as public opinion) if it actually developed it’s winners...

THE AFTERBURN: John Legend – Love In The Future

Artist: John Legend Album: Love in the Future Release Date: 8.30.13 It’s one thing to review an album when it first comes out, but I’ve found that the best way to evaluate the impact of music is to analyze the “replay value”. I don’t give out titles like “Classic” or put my stamp on just anything, it’s too much crap out these days for that… So a few months after release (after the album has burned in…), if...

ALBUM REVIEW: Kelly Clarkson – Wrapped In Red

Artist: Kelly Clarkson Album: Wrapped In Red (Holiday) Release Date: 10.25.13 Christmas songs were made for voices like Kelly Clarkson’s. Her rich soprano tone sounds right at home on Wrapped In Red, her new holiday release in stores now. Clarkson runs the gamut, from bluesy favorites to festive classics and even a few brand new offerings of her own. There’s not a single disappointment in the 16 tracks here… Okay, there is just one: O Come O Come Emmanuel....

ALBUM REVIEW: The Best Man Holiday (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Artist: Various Artists Album: The Best Man Holiday Release Date: 10.25.13 I don’t know about you guys, but I’m seriously looking forward to the release of The Best Man Holiday, the sequel to 1999’s critically acclaimed film The Best Man. I picked up this soundtrack earlier in the week, not realizing it would be mostly Christmas music. So today (now that Halloween is officially over) I felt more ready to dive into this compilation (I know I’m still...

REVIEW: Kanye West – Yeezus

Artist: Kanye West Album: Yeezus Release Date: 6.18.13 Like many of you, I’m a fan of Kanye West – but he ain’t above reproach. At all. Now before you click out of this review, let me just say Yeezus is not a bad album by any means, but it is a bit of a letdown. Kanye’s sixth album regurgitates the elements you loved from Kanye’s previous albums, lights them on fire, and serves them on a spiked platter at about 500 degrees. Yeah, it’s all the way turnt up. And while I can...
