audio review : The Love Album [ Off The Grind ] ( album ) … Diddy

audio review : The Love Album ( album ) ... Diddy

This isn’t really a Diddy album in the traditional sense, but it starts like one. When he first raps on the opening Love song; his voice hasn’t changed much after all these years; it brings about a sense of late 1990s nostalgia. Bad Boy was on top of the rap world back then and a major player when it came to the modern soul genre commonly referred to as “R&B”. This is more of a compilation album with strong emphasis on the latter.

There are twenty songs here and every one has a singer on the hook, most of whom are quite famous. That says more about Diddy’s clout than his artistic skills as the mogul bows out of whole songs like he’s still talent scouting for Uptown Records. You won’t fall in Love with most of them; the constant crooning rarely results in memorable melodies; but The Weeknd steals the show with his feature and HER shines on the Space closer.

my rating : 3 of 5

audio review : 4AM Mulholland ( album ) ... Amerie audio review : After 4AM ( album ) ... Amerie

This would’ve been better as one full-length album, but at least we get two cover photos of Amerie; she’s nearly 40 but still hot; almost showing her tits. Unfortunately the songs aren’t as risqué as the 4AM theme suggests. It starts with a Curious tease, but the set is more about romantic Love than raunchy sex. Late night highlights include A Heart’s For The Breaking, Give It All Up and the Mulholland title cut.
