  1. There may be very little here that is truly innovative, but Thicke proves that new dogs do old tricks pretty well.

    Something Else--a sharper, more concise follow-up to 2006’s breakthrough but spotty, "The Evolution of Robin Thicke"--songwriter and producer Thicke is using the tones and rhythms of soul music for a bigger idea: dissatisfaction.
  3. Though his sources remain numerous, this is his most focused, least scattered, and least dilettantish set, and it benefits greatly from its brevity relative to "The Evolution."
  4. Amid the attempts at sexual healing and cosmic, eco-soul unity, Thicke crafts some beautiful atmospheres.
  5. As a utilitarian background soundtrack, it'll do nicely.
  6. Musically, Thicke's dick is in the right place, but when it comes to this genre, I don't trust any vocalist who spends more time eating his audience out than slapping his own engorged junk against the palm of his hand.
  7. 50
    Every white soul traditionalist from Hall & Oates to Duffy demands catchy, impactful songs, yet that’s where Thicke is thinnest.
