Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the R&B superstar. Libra Scale, is a monumental concept album that tells the story of the rise of R&B's first superhero squad, The Gentleman, a trio of garbage men who are granted all that they've ever wanted--special powers, money, fame, women-- after encountering a mysterious figure. The only catch? The men must use their powers to fight crime in their city and must never ever fall in love. Not a problem until Jerome (Ne-Yo) meets Pretty Sinclair, a vivacious, no-nonsense beauty. He quickly captures her heart. But all goes awry when after a night of passion, Pretty Sinclair contracts a strain of Jerome's superpowers and suffers an adverse reaction that effectively drives her crazy.

Format: Audio CD
"Libra Scale" apparently narrates different chapters in the lives of three black superheroes inspired by Ne-Yo's love of comics and sci-fi. Put all that aside and what we have is an album that is an improvement on his last "Year Of The Gentleman".

Opening is the uptempo R&B dance song "Champagne Life" with echoes of Michael Jackson. Shades of Jackson show up again in the finger-snap driven ballad "Know Your Name" and the upbeat "Cause I Said So". "Crazy Love" features Fabolous, and with its languid feel and quivering guitars has echoes of Lauryn Hill.

Other standouts are the midtempo "Makin' A Movie" and "One In A Million", the StarGate-produced swirling trancey Dance number "Beautiful Monster" (a UK no.1 hit) with lovely layered harmonies (reminiscent of Rihanna's "Russian Roulette which he co-wrote), and the beautiful falsetto-sung ballad "What Have I Done?" (think "I Can't Help It" by Michael Jackson. There really isn't a bad track here, and Ne-Yo's singing has acquired more depth and passion than was present in his other albums.

Ne-Yo is a pure gentleman with this album and I love it! You definitely have to have an appreciation for this talented young man to come out with an album where you can tell he puts his all into each song. It would've been awesome if there was a download of videos and behind the scenes footage available for sale to come along with the album. I love seeing musicians at work, from the beginning stages, to making their ideas come to life, and the final, finished product. Keep doing you Ne-Yo, and thank you GOD for not being damn near naked in your videos, keeping things light & fun, and not constantly talking about what can be done in bed.

I bought this album digitally on Black Friday for two reasons - (1) Ne-Yo is at the head of the pack of young guys whose music I love so whenever I find out he's releasing new music, I get it & (2) it was $3.99 (gotta save $ where I can given my music fetish).

I loved the lead single & video, CHAMPAGNE LIFE. It is such a joyous track and makes me want to get up and dance every time I hear it. He then quickly released BEAUTIFUL MONSTER & I hated the track so didn't quite know what to expect of the rest of the album. I was also a little troubled by Ne-Yo's comments after the album under-performed, I have a pet peeve about artists who don't stand behind their work - it makes me feel like I wasted my $$ supporting their effort.

I appreciate the comments from other posters regarding his desire to present this project as a movie so now those videos make sense. It's a shame that the label rushed him and nixed that idea because I think it could've worked - it's a concept that no one else is doing currently & the songs told a story & tied into one another but given the skittish nature of record labels these days it's unsurprising that any type of creativity is stifled while artists are pushed to create the same 'ol music as every other artist. I also wonder if he'd gotten other promotion - like a BET or MTV "making of" documentary that could've reached more people to explain the concept and also to alert people that the album was dropping.

I like this album a lot more than I did BECAUSE OF YOU. The lyrics are strong as is the music production. I love 7 out of the 10 songs so that's a great purchase in my book!

You would think artists get progressively worse with time, but it's vice versa with Ne-Yo. This guy just keeps getting more imaginative/ creative by each passing year.

Loved everything from the MJ vibe to the great collab with Fabolous to just about everything a solid R&B album needs in order to be a success. Almost all songs on this CD are fantstic and bass so good that it sends shivers down your spine. You can tell Ne-Yo poured his heart and soul on this album, it really shows.

Great stuff Ne-YO, thanks for reviving the R&B scene. Definitely a contender for my top 5 albums of the year.

Just only to been listening to Ne-Yo back when I was younger but really got into his soul lyrics that he would have on worldwide around. Libra Scale is a great album and first one I brought to see how so good it is.

Libra Scale was Ne-Yo trying to step out of the box and do something different and uncomfortable, he took a risk. And while I still love all the music, I don't think it is quite on par with his other albums as a whole. I feel as though he tried too hard to create a linear story that would match up with all the music videos he had planned and this sacrificed the quality in the music. So if you are just looking for some good quality songs, I definitely recommend this album. If you just want to pick out your favorite songs, well here are my top 5 :)

One in a Million
Genuine Only
Beautiful Monster
Cause I Said So
Makin' a Movie

Ne-Yo is refreshing, my favorite artist of all time. Love playing all his albums 24/7 and keeping his station on pandora. Can't say anything bad about his music, although the last album "RED" is the best.
