    Songz isn't doing anything new, but when he's still delivering music this high quality it really doesn't matter that much.

    Ultimately though, this one is a step up, its maker beginning to lean towards representing the sentiments of the men he stands for, developing a voice currently missing in RnB.

    "Playin' Hard" and "Fumble," introspective and self-critical, are two of the album's most resonant songs and provide more depth, even though the sentiments are probably fleeting.

    While the 70-minute disc could use editing, it does showcase his versatility and lithe vocals.

    Indeed much of Chapter V finds him going about that business as determinedly as an infantryman.

    Chapter V is admirably cohesive, thanks to Songz sticking mostly with one producer, Troy Taylor, throughout.

    Chapter V is full of big ballads and bigger club beats that take dead aim at the pop mainstream.

Personally, I recommend checking out "Heart Attack", "2 Reasons", "Pretty Girl's Lie", "Bad Decisions", "Check Me Out", and "Almost Lose It", but otherwise, you can probably just skip the other tracks. Better than what I expected, though. Expand

    Sprinkled with sorry ballads containing about as much sincerity as a daytime soap.
