Sony Music sent us the new Usher album for a review and we listened to it to give an honest impartial opinion. Let us know what you think about it.

Album: Raymond Vs. Raymond

Label: Sony

Price: Rs 399

Starting off in the mid 90's, Usher has come a long way rising slowly to be one of the biggest R&B superstars on the planet, bagging 5 Grammy Awards and even singing at President Obama's inauguration. His latest
effort Raymond VS Raymond does not fail to deliver and it adds another
feather in his cap. Released on Jive records, the high caliber producers who get the credits in this album include Bangladesh, Red One, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Polow The Don and Danja.

The album begins with a gentle Intro going in to the smooth song Hey Daddy which has already left its mark on the charts. Usher then gets everybody down with the Hit single Lil Freak which features new sensation on the block Nicki Minaj.  She Don’t Know has rapper Ludacris his usual off the hook lines, I think this should have been a video track.
OMG or Oh My God is trademark usher a true club banger to get all in to a groove with WILL I AM contributing heavily. The track has a very exciting tempting beat to it; it feels like Yeah all over again.

 Usher then shows us his soft gentle romantic side in Mars vs. Venus, Fooling Around (with its awesome piano intro) and Papers. His vocal range is in full display as he talks to the Ladies and mesmerizes them with the magic he creates in the air.

Then once again, Usher turns up the tempo with So Many Girls which is another club banger in the making.

  Southern Rap King TI also makes an appearance and shines on Guilty.

The album ends with the slow soul feel song Making Love (In to the Night).
For 2010, this has got to be one of the best R&B albums, a sure chart topper and definitely one for the Ladies. If you’re in love, this is a good one to pop in the player, turn off the lights with that special somebody, and let the music take you on a romantic journey to place's you never thought of.

Rating – 4.5
