R&B Hits 6 - various - Some nice music, but what's the point?

2006-03-30 17:29

It's hard work evaluating an R&B hits compilation.

Because of course, a lot of what there is to say doesn't need to be said. Obviously, the tracks are all well produced. Obviously, it's a good format in which to buy R&B - you'll avoid the tedium of an album with only one worthwhile track, a multi-million dollar video, and lots of cover art showing you the artists' underwear collection.

But short of reviewing each track, there's little to say. The best songs are by genuine stars like Blu Cantrell, Aretha Franklyn, Craig David, Beyonce, Missy Elliott and R. Kelly, whose albums you might consider buying. The others? Well, you may as well just tape them off Metro FM and edit out the DJs with the fake American accents.

In short? It's a nice enough listen but there's no real reason to own it.

Featuring: R. Kelly, Blu Cantrell, Justin Timerlake, Ginuwine, Aretha Franklin, Kindred, Missy Elliott, Sean Paul, Tamia, Beyonce, Glenn Lewis, Craig David, LSG, Monica, Mis-teeq, Danny K, Nodesha, Bianca, and Gerald Levert.
