    The seventh Usher's studio album can not really clearly be classified as classic R&B, even through songs such as: hip-hop, created with the participation of Rick Ross "Lemme See" or tinged by electronic elements singles "Scream" and "Climax".

    When Usher puts out an album he is among the few artists that are on my "must listen" list. His voice is pure and very versitile. Listening to this album he was clearly gearing for club/dance/remix rotations. I did like "can't stop" "what happened to u", Looking for myself" and "Euphoria." I do not think it was his best album nor his worst. I think it is worth a listen to enjoy his pureWhen Usher puts out an album he is among the few artists that are on my "must listen" list.

    This is still a record pushing the boundaries of what modern R&B music can be and still keep its audience. Usher sounds and looks good out on that cutting edge.

    It's more about sound quality and songwriting than the calculated brand-building of his recent releases.

    Where the experimentation often succeeds, the editing fails.
