This album should've been one disc. It's alright but he has more bad songs than good songs. Home Alone is my jam and i like the video too. I was surprised he had several guest appearances from rappers. Noreaga was the only weak rapper on here. I think Noreaga was on a song with Camron and Jay-Z. I don't like r&b singers who sing more love songs than jams because i like jams/party music. R Kelly is one of the few r&b singers i like that sing more love songs than jams. That's why i love funk groups like Dazz Band, Kool And The Gang, Cameo, Lakeside, Zapp, The Time, Con Funk Shun, Parliament/Funkadelic, Midnight Star, The Gap Band. There will never be groups like this again who made jams and that's why r&b music will continue to be dead until i die LOL. 90's was the last good decade for r&b.
Solid album but no 12 Play.
I meant to say the 80's was the last good decade for r&b.
What was wrong with the 90s and after that CJ? since i know you have a real opinion even if its asinine.
Nobody from the 90's and after that has made good party music like the bands i mentioned from the 80's. Bell Biv Devoe, Tony Toni Tone, R Kelly, Silk, Bobby Brown were the only 90's r&b singers i liked.
Ofcourse all the things I say is opinion. What I meant with funk&disco is that soul/r&b never used the claps they were using in disco music until the 80s started. For example Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing (great track, but definitely different from before) clap. They used that sound a lot. In the 80s you had KC & The Sunshine Band, Genesis, Bee Gees making the disco/funk type of rnb music.
Yeah i mean a lot of it didn't change in terms of songwriting but the production changed a lot over the years. I like some of the older stuff but not often.
I guess you lean to more natural sounds. I was listening to TLC's Fanmail today and its completely unnatural sounding and poppy.
You would probably like some of the neo soul shit, to me theres not enough variety but theres a few good ones like amel and saadiq.
Don't make me laugh about Raphael Saddiq hahahahahahahahahaha. His Instant Vintage album cover is gay because of the woman's dress he wore LOL. I don't like his solo albums but Tony Toni Tone's albums are good except their first album Who and he should've stayed with them.
