Jay Sean is another one of those artists where you wonder where in the world he came up with his stage name (though I guess Kamaljit Jhooti doesn't exactly roll off the tongue). His first two albums were met with limited success, but somewhere along the line he crossed over with the obligatory-song-featuring-Lil-Wayne, "Down" -- but to be fair, he IS on Cash Money Records now. Anyway, Jay comes at us with his latest album, All or Nothing.

I didn't really know what to expect from this album not because Jay isn't good, but he doesn't really sound much different from any other singer out there. I listened to the album though, and it turns out to be pretty good. "Down" is the best song on here, but there are other standouts like "Do You", "War" and "Stuck in the Middle".

Jay also does a good job with otherwise tired subject matter. "Fire" doesn't have him talking about anything new, but it still works; and I wasn't exactly looking forward to the necessary end-of-album remix-of-the-first single, but it turns out to be a beautiful acoustic piano version that's more about love itself than strictly sex (although some of the lyrics are omitted rather than changed). "If I Ain't Got You" gives the topic an interesting twist, and there is a good metaphor to be found in "Lights Off" (notice I said metaphor, so it isn't what you might think it'd be about).

I couldn't really get into "Cry" or "Stay", and Lil Jon's adlibs on "Do You Remember" aren't necessary. And normally I would knock my rating down to three-and-a-half stars upon discovering that five of the songs on here already appeared on Jay's previous album My Own Way, but I didn't because that album is only available on import -- correction: WAS available on import; it's now out of print. Anyway, All or Nothing is a great example of Jay Sean getting his career on the right track.

I know "All Or Nothing" is classified as an R&B album, and that Jay Sean is on the same label as hip-hop/rap star Lil' Wayne, but after listening to the album all the way through, I'd say Jay Sean and his music are more along the lines of pop than R&B. It has some R&B influences, sure, but if you listen to this album you'll find that Jay Sean reminds you a bit of Justin Timberlake (vocally) and his style of music more akin to that of a boy band (minus the band). The voice is definitely good and on point but the various tracks are rather hit or miss.

The Good: Jay Sean's best feature is his voice. If "All Or Nothing" accomplishes anything it is that it allows his voice to shine and be on display more so than busying each track with a busy, complex, distracting backing track. He's obviously comfortable singing in a ballad/emotional song setting more so than the fast-paced and upbeat mode but the best tracks of "All Or Nothing" are those that take a few chances. "Down" is probably the most upbeat, club-ready track on the entire album; it's definitely the most addictive with catchy pop-ish lyrics. "Fire" is another stand-out track with an interesting backing track that never overcomes his voice but keeps the song moving and somewhat upbeat. Lyrically, "War" is the best track on the album. While most of the songs on the album have something to do with being in love, approaching a love interest or sensual subjects, "War" is about heartbreak and it's a slow paced ballad-type track with an unusual instrument backing and lyrics that actually have some thought behind it.

The Bad: Listening to the whole album, I teetered between three and four stars. I settled on three because really, if you take away the instrument backing, a lot of the tracks have a similar sound.

Jay Sean is one of those exceptional individuals with a golden voice and dance moves that remind you of the boybands in the 90's, thereby making him a unique artiste in todays society. I knew of him before he made it big in the United States with his track "Down" feat Lil Wayne. He has a Charming personality with great intentions for the world to be a happier place. His current album All or Nothing has some fantastic songs with great meaning in every lyric. This album can only go up the charts and prove to the world that Jay Sean is here to stay and showcase his raw talent. Personally I am Indian like himself and i am very proud to share this exotic and colorful culture with some one like him. I wish he used "Ride It" Hindi Version in this album so people in the US can hear how beautiful our language is. Although its not there the song is still great in english. I wish him all the success in the world and i'm sure everyone has now heard of him and look forward to great projects and collaborations in the near future. Cheers and congratulations to Kamaljit Jhooti AKA Jay Sean!!!!

I usually don't buy the entire album written by artists because I tend to like only the more popular songs and the rest in the CD turn out to be very blah. I'm glad I actually went out to buy this CD because I think each of his songs are catchy and/or upbeat. Since I first heard the song "Do You" I can't get it out of my head, and now I made it my ringtone! I also love his songs "Do You Remember", "War" and of course "Down". I knew of him before he spread like wildfire in the US, so I heard most of these songs and they're all great, especially "Cry", "All or Nothing", "Ride it", "Stay"... Jay Sean has other amazing songs before hitting the US like "Tonight" and "I Won't Tell".. Jay Sean's a great singer, and his songs are the ones you'd want to sing or dance to. I definitely do. =)
