    This album screams classic Usher. A few popular club bangers mixed with a handful of R&B tracks. I like that mix and can appreciate what he is trying to do. I think long time Usher fans will like it but it's way to short. 9 tracks (37 minutes total) means this should have been released as an EP or included a few remixes of the official singles at the end to make up for the lack of tracks.

    djprinvale is right...this album is just like classics like 8701 and Here I Stand..Raymond v. Raymond was far better than this but is a side dish to what the last album was

  1. Comprising eight new songs plus There Goes My Baby, the new set alternately bumps and throbs as a reinvigorated Usher further paves his comeback path.
  2. Of course, the only people I could imagine getting any pleasure whatsoever from Versus's wretched collection of failed club-sex jams are those with enough bad taste to buy Raymond v. Raymond three or four times over.
  3. Freshly single, Usher does everything but buy a waterbed, an Italian sports car and announce, "Mothers, lock up your daughters."
