Customer Reviews

Highly recommending it.
C. Bence
Like, Love/Hate and Love v. Money, I can't really say which album I think is better.
Tomeka
This album is best listened to as a whole but each song does great on its own.

The Dream has completed the trifecta with his third and final (supposedly) album LOVE-KING. The Dream has been compared to R. Kelly and rightfully so. While not being the high caliber singer as Robert (honestly The Dream isn't that great of a singer but he uses what he's got to the max), he undoubtedly makes up for it with his arrangements, production and songwriting. But rather than compare the two we'll just call him this generation's version of R. Kelly.

His debut album Love/Hate was a welcome surprise to the music world. While being behind the scenes for quite some time, he stepped out as a solo artist and needless to say his production style has caught on from everyone from Mariah Carey to Ciara. He's to the point (also much like R.Kelly) where he's producing and writing entire albums for other artists.

He continues his reign on Love King in which there is absolutely no fall off. The album flows along at a perfect pace and it seems like one big jam session as each song seamlessly transitions into the next. Every transition is good and every song fits so well. The trilogy of Yamaha,Nikki Part 2, and Abyss (for which there is a 13 minute video) perfectly displays the genius. In my opinion, every song is 4 to 5 stars but my favorites seem to be Turnt Out, February Love, Yamaha and Sex Intelligent. The bonus tracks are a welcome addition (especially Priceless) even though it makes the album longer than it's supposed to be.

If this is indeed The Dream's final album it would be an absolute tragedy as he has the ability to create great albums. Love Vs. Money and this album Love King are borderline masterpieces. This album is best listened to as a whole but each song does great on its own.

If you like the dream or have bought either of his previous CDs and enjoyed them, buy this now! in comparison to Love VS Money, this album dosent have as much variety, theres alot of slower songs on this CD, i kind of wish there were more "yamaha"'s on here dont get me wrong i love all of the songs on the CD with exception to Florida University, particularly February Love which seems like fancy part 2, which was my favorite song of love vs money, theres more cursing than the last albums so if you have youngins get the clean version, if your deciding between deluxe and regular, spend the few more dollars and get deluxe, the 5 extra tracks are excellent, espically sorry, oh and bass lovers will not be disappointed either, turn the subwoofer way up!

I was saddened to read that The-Dream, one of my favorite current R&B artists new album Love King debuted at #4 on the Billboard Charts with only 58,000 copies sold. Those numbers mark a 93,000 copy plunge from The-Dream's "high-water mark" Love vs Money. It is sad because The-Dream is one of the few 'current' R&B artists that separates himself out of the saturated cloud of contemporary R&B. Sure, he is "gimmicky" in his songwriting, a trend that has caused many R&B purists to question the "sanctity" of R&B anymore, but he is also one of the most creative songwriters/record producers. His credits include "Umbrella" (Rihanna), "Single Ladies" (Beyoncé), and "One Time" and "Baby" (Justin Bieber) among others. His own albums are as solid, if not more so, than the many artists he collaborates with. Naturally, when The-Dream announced that 'Love King' would be his final solo album, I was utterly sad; he makes up for it though when he announces the release date for his next album within "Sex Intelligent (Remix)."

Despite being a fantastic song/single, "Love King" practically bombed as a promo single for the album of the same name, peaking only around the high nineties of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. While it does sound similar to singles "Shawty is a 10!" (Love/Hate) and "Rocking That Thang" (Love vs. Money), The-Dream does a superb job of differentiating the sound of this single slightly from his others. The hook is undeniably catchy ("L to the O, V to the E...

I honestly enjoy The-Dream's CDs, but I have to be honest this one sounds like it was rushed as if he just had to put something out. His two previous albums had a distant idea behind them both with Lovehate focusing on him being torn between loving his ex then hating her the next minute and Love vs Money going a little more in details about why things fell apart and the choices between his success and love life. Love King, is damn near all over the place. I expected the CD to be about mainly love, hence the "Love King" but it was just all over the place. Lovehate and Love vs Money can ride out in my CD player no matter what song but Love King, I honestly am really only feeling about four maybe five songs and thats only including the deluxe version that has about three of the best songs on it. Take Care of Me, Nikki Part 2 (alright), Sex Intelligent, Abyss (Alright), and Sorry.
