    Usher has always been good at uptempo material but this album is packed with soul-less attempts at being soulful. Usher should stay away from trying to do the slow jams and leave those to the real R&B cats out there (R. Kelly etc.). Usher is better at the the Justin Timberlake type material because his first attempt at proper soul music has him out of his depth

    Usher's songs are about the same things over and over again. He cannot sing and I find it apalling that he always has to take off his shirt. Guess what, Ush? I don't like seeing abs and I'm a young teenage girl! Try pop and rock instead of this boring R & B

    Needless to say, the time is right for the phrase "just another" to be banned from use when discussing him.
  2. His pipes are in tip-top shape, sure, but hearing this stuff is sometimes more embarrassing than reading your little sister's diary.
  3. The music here tries to be as unobtrusive as possible, its plasticky tone and carefully shined finish constructed to contrast with the earnest soulfulness of Usher's singing. And it's in his words that the album finds the substance that it does have.
