    RJD2's collaboration with Philly singer Aaron Livingston bears the qualities that have divided the instrumental hip-hop producer's fans since the 2006 misfire The Third Hand -- most prominently, jazz-rock ellipses and thin, expressive vocals (Livingston's are only slightly better than RJ's own efforts).

    Ultimately, The Abandoned Lullaby is at least worth hearing for RJD2 fans, although musically it's really only a lateral move.

    Overall, The Abandoned Lullaby is a texturally interesting marriage of genres, but hardly a unique one. As solid as the music sounds, it's just not special enough to crave, making this collaboration rather forgettable.
