    He could easily have served up another full helping of R&B romance, but instead he’s tested himself – something you rarely see in artists of his stature. It’s impressive.

    Bigger Love, his seventh album, shows off the emerging subtlety of his musical craft and social messaging.

    Bigger Love is rife with this feel-good energy, buoyed by his stately voice and easygoing charm, but beneath its positive exterior is an emptiness that’s hard to ignore.

    Playing it safe just a little too often, it finds John Legend in full flow, demonstrating his undeniable versatility – yet it can also appear to be covering the bases, offering breadth for the sake of breadth.

    Bigger Love sounds cobbled together compared to Love in the Future and Darkness and Light, two of his most recent and inspired albums, with opportunistic and unconvincing stylistic curveballs, no two tracks sharing the same production credits, and few clear standouts.

    The ironic thing is that he knows that a 16-track album of love songs for his wife is too much. As he puts it on Actions: “She don’t want it. She don’t need it.” Who, then, is it all for?

    Every song on here comes from a collaboration from a different source, or a different trend that Legend is hopping on. There’s nothing personal here. ... Bigger Love’s second half has painful trap pop (Don’t Walk Away), plastic soul (Remember Us, Always), and a piano ballad closer with no defining traits or features (Never Break), all in classic John Legend fashion.

    John Legend, não teria esse nome sem uma razão, em um álbum romântico e com uma voz admirável, nos traz de volta do que realmente era a músicaJohn Legend, não teria esse nome sem uma razão, em um álbum romântico e com uma voz admirável, nos traz de volta do que realmente era a música soul e r&b, no enfoque nos sentimentos e na voz afável, assim como jogar de corpo e alma na música, como era artistas do tipo de Marvin Gaye e Sam Cooke, realmente 'Bigger Love' conduziu a paixão neste excelente trabalho.
