Love Vs Money…

So if R. Kelly, while trapped in a closet, sung some hooks over Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours, one might have an idea of what The Dream’s Love Vs Money bangs like. The R&B mastermind layers his synths meticulously; his incorporation of harmonies and hooks are flawless; and the hint of Prince and Timbaland elements are sparse, yet used in a manner to further ingrain these mini-operatic tracks in your dome. This isn’t something I’d usually rock – but that’s exactly what’s been happening: I’ve been “Rockin’ That Shit”right. It makes me lean, walk with a lil’ swagger – and put a bounce in my two-step.  This album is a smooth and shiny R&B record, on the definite pop tip. When was the last time you had an album’s worth of potential singles (13) that could burn up the charts with sweet simplicity? 1982?

Step out of your element, and press play on your summer soundtrack…

    Never anything wrong with a little R&B. Does every song really hit hard though? It isn’t easy to hold focus for a full album’s worth of like-minded cuts.

    BTW, the video link is now busted.
