[NEW RELEASES] Usher
One of the big names in pop, Usher, has released a new album titled “Raymond v. Raymond,” that seems to cross the line between trendy and too much.
In his early days, the singer had consistently been able to deliver flawless R&B and soft pop tunes that were easy to listen to.
Although the same is true here, I get the feeling that he did everything by the book to make this album a hit.
This was most noticeable when he overused electronic voice effects on the song “OMG,” making it sound cliche.
Some of the songs are classic Usher, but again, it’s a little too much.
If Usher could find a middle ground between gracing the cutting edge and staying true to his sound, he would be closer to the trendsetter we remember.
