If this poor excuse for a song wins ANY Grammy award, (which I know it will) I think I just may have to go postal on my co-worker.
Jake Adler
Like, I love "Yeah", as you know "My Boo", "Burn", "Confessions Part 2 & the remix", "Throwback", "Bad Girl", and "Superstar" are the best songs and are amazing!
Raven Symone
I think it's a great album...it's one of the first albums in a long time that I can listen to without skipping through all the songs to find the good ones.

I'm 100% for reissuing and re-releasing albums. They're a great way to introduce a time-tested classic to a younger, uninitiated audience, and most record labels often remaster the original recording for a fuller and superior sound. Reissuing an album is acceptable for a 40 year old album, a 30 year old album, a 20 year old album, or even a 10 year old album. But to reissue a CD roughly seven months after its original release date smacks of naked corporate greed. For Arista (the parent company of LaFace Records), it's not enough that Usher's "Confessions" shot to Number One, went multiplatinum, and spawned back-to-back hits. In a transparent attempt to double-dip into the pockets of consumers, they take Usher's album (which, by the way, is a good record on its own merits), repackage it with new photos (for those who savor the sight of Usher's torso), and slap on 4 tracks that include the recent hit "My Boo" (with Alicia Keys). So, the question begs, are these 4 songs strong enough to make a wise consumer buy the same album twice? No. "My Boo" is a pretty decent single, but "Red Light" and "Seduction" have "filler" written all over them. The "remix" of "Confessions" is virtually identical to the original; the main difference is that it features Shyne, Kanye West and Twista on the mike. Why couldn't Arista release these 4 songs as a separate EP? Why add these tracks onto previously released material and add a few "new" glossy color photos? Because Arista wants to milk its cash cow for what its worth, and it will stoop low enough to entice people to buy the same album twice. If you have no version of "Confessions," then I suppose you could get this one. But those who have the March 2004 edition have absolutely no reason to get this poor excuse of a "special edition" CD.

I don't have anything against the music, what I do take issue with is an artist releasing a CD then all of a sudden a few months later releasing the same CD with new tracks!!! Why not give the people what they want the first time instead of sticking them up and having them buy the CD twice!!! Both Usher and Arista should feel heavy duty shame by their greedy moneygrabbing ways!!!

"Confessions," the fifth long-player from ATL's Usher Raymond, is more than a new album. It's also a mature step forward and an exercise in self-examination. Here, Usher unloads some serious baggage, ranging from infidelity (the title track and "Truth Hurts"), materialism ("Simple Things"), unwanted pregnancy (the title track again), and failed relationships, particularly his breakup with TLC's Chili. But that's not to say "Confessions" is all drama and no fun. The album is neatly divided between uptempo jams and smooth ballads, and Usher doesn't disappoint on either front. At first listen, I wasn't a huge fan of the kickoff single "Yeah!" (featuring Ludacris and Lil' Jon), but over time, this catchy hip hop-flavored number caught onto me very quickly. Other decent cuts are "Superstar," the Jam & Lewis-produced "That's What It's Made For," and the downtempo groove of the killer closer, "Follow Me." Well produced and with minimal filler (I could have done without the messy "Do it To Me"), "Confessions" lives up to its title thanks to its honest lyrics and its tight production. Grade: B.

As R and B singer Usher's latest CD Confessions (the limited addition) gets higher ratings, more and more fans crowd the nearest music stores to buy a copy. Once you get a taste of his music from the radio, you will not be able to resist the temptation of buying his CD.

The first song Usher released off his CD was "Yeah" featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris. It was a hit. It's great beat,just like many other songs on his CD, gives you a vibe which makes you want to dance. Not only did "Yeah" get a good review but so did his duet with Alicea Keys "My Boo" which was #1 on BET for about two and a half weeks.Other videos made by Usher based on the songs off of this CD were "Burn", "Confessions Pt.1 and 2" and "Caught Up".

Most of Ushers songs are based on a bad breakup. He was interviewed and asked if those songs were based on the breakup between him and TLC member Chilly.Usher stated that it was all a rumor.

Usher is a very inspiring artist.With quotes such as "Learn from the mistakes of others you can't make them all" and "Anger is only one letter short of danger." Anyone feeling depressed will get lifted up again. So if you follow Usher's advice take my advice too and trust me when I tell you buy this CD as soon as possible. Usher's CD Confessions is a hit no one can resist.

I agree w/ another reviewer. I am an Usher fan especially since he's down w/ my boy Michael Jackson. The problem is I bought the first release of this album and now he re-released it w/ 4 extra songs? Thanks a lot Usher, way to screw your loyal fans! My opinion of him has changed because of this move. I'm not gonna waste more money on your updated Confessions.

I've heard a lot of people say that Usher is an underrated artist. And you may say, "How? He's put out three albums, he's had at least three #1 hits, and his 'U Don't Have To Call' won a Grammy!" Well, I think Usher is a very talented singer, but I've noticed usually the best songs on his albums aren't released, and there are a number of not-so-good songs that surround the good ones. Such is the case with his latest album, Confessions.
Now, we're all familiar with the hit song "Yeah!" (although Lil Jon has a habit of completely taking over songs that he's only featured in). There are other good songs, too. Usher usually delivers when it comes to ballads, and he doesn't disappoint with offerings like the revealing title track. And this time around, the songs Jermaine Dupri wrote are quite impressive, as evidenced by "Burn" and "Do It To Me". The latter is perfect for getting the mood right, but "Can U Handle It" might do that even better.
Unfortunately, there's also some bad news. There are a couple songs that you can tell were written at the last minute, like "Superstar" and "Caught Up". And when Usher tries to sing over sped-up (or chopped-up) old soul samples, he hits ("Throwback") and misses ("Take Your Hand"). And I don't think the album would have suffered if "Bad Girl" or "Follow Me" weren't on here.
Overall, Confessions still has more good songs than bad songs, and it's worth adding to your collection. I just wish that Usher could shine more when he doesn't just stick to ballads, because he does have what it takes to keep the party moving. Let's just hope the producers of the party joints step their game up and we'll see an even better album next time.
