  1. OnMyRadio is a welcome departure from previous work, which started to all sound the same around 2003's "Soulstar."
  2. The album isn’t such a departure after all. Beyond that aberrant (abhorrent?) single, its tone is imploring and the sound is warm.
  3. With his fifth album, he pretty much follows his Philly soul formula (even though he now lives in Atlanta), gliding his lithe vocals over keys and an acoustic instrumental dynamic that allow him to shine.
  4. A couple dramatic moments don't quite take full flight, and a handful of tracks are tepid and unmemorable, but OnMyRadio is mostly another set of sturdily constructed laid-back R&B.
  5. 70
    If there’s something the gifted singer-songwriter might want to learn, though, it’s the art of writing more memorable song lyrics.
  6. The downside of this open-armed approach is a lack of sonic specificity; OnMyRadio occasionally blands out into a nondescript stew of melismatic vocals and slow-jam beats.
