That's what you get when you mess up... he is really telling his story and begging to get her back!

Too bad because he really is a talented performer, just not a particularly original one.

Really too bad so many people are going to allow the hype to deafen their ears to this one. This album is Robin Thicke's return to the eclectic mix of music that made many fans become just that. Ironic, since Blurred Lines (the entire album, in my opinion) wasn't what I felt to be the finest representation of his artistry. Worse, people are so quick to label these songs as "creepy." In a world where people spend months of preparation and thousands of dollars to get married only to walk out the door the second the butterflies stop fluttering, this man is openly trying to reconcile with the woman with whom he took vows. Personally, I commend the effort, even the missteps (he could really use a better PR rep, though). Beats publicly rushing right into someone else's bed like so many others seem to do.

Don't sleep on this.

Robin Thicke had a huge 2013. His single "Blurred Lines" was a worldwide smash and he even found Miley Cyrus twerking against his crotch at the MTV Awards.

Earlier this year, his wife of 9 years announced their separation and ever since then, Thicke has been on a highly public quest to win her back. Whether he will succeed is still not clear, but he's used this chance to record his own "Here, My Dear", but where Marvin Gaye chronicled a moribund relationship (with bitterness, anger, with honesty) and a new blossoming love, Thicke hopes he will win his wife back by declaring his guilt from the get go.

He's named it "Paula" after the object of his quest, and uses every chance he can to say sorry, beg, grovel, and more.

The beautiful lilting Latin-tinged "You're My Fantasy" opens the album, with its numerous false stops, enchanting guitar and finding him softly pleading "Please please please please please please please". If this doesn't get her back, nothing will. Lead-single "Get Her Back" is a soulful drumless song on which he expresses regret. Captivating.

Raising the tempo are the retro Soul "Whatever I Want" and the James Brown-aping "Living In New York City" complete with darting horns and yelps. The catchy "Too Little Too Late" is frantic electro Funk which raises the energy of the album. "Blurred Lines" it isn't but it gets ones feet moving. "Tippy Toes" (on which he sings about a girl who can twerk, hmm), "Something Bad" (finding him singing in his lowest register), and "Time Of Your Life" are Blues/Rockabilly numbers.

"Love Can Grow Back" is a Jazzy Blues ballad, while the Bluesy "Black Tar Cloud" finds him declaring an emergency; "There's a black tar cloud, all because of me".

I have honestly never liked Robin Thicke one bit. I always thought he was a cheap rip off of Justin Timberlake. I remember when the video for "Blurred Lines" first came out and was starting to generate attention. It was his lucky year in 2013. If it wasn't for the controversial video and annoyingly catchy song, he wouldn't have reached number one. I admit the song is catchy, but I still don't like it. Well then Paula Patton, his wife, separated from Robin and ever since he has been pleading for her at concerts. Then he goes and does something like this. It does seem pathetic and creepy as seen from the first single "Get Her Back" and it's equally creepy video. Everyone assumed it was all just a way for Robin to sell his new album written about and titled for his wife. Too bad it didn't work. People don't seem to be buying it, and they aren't giving the music a chance since all people can think about is that he is a creepy guy taking advantage of his fame. I was one of those people. Dismissing the album automatically as a stalker creepfest soundtrack without even listening. But....then.....I listened to the album. I have to say a lot of the songs are very well put together. The lyrics can be too corny but also sweet to listen to while thinking of your lover. He has put out a more laid back love album. The production is crisp on each track. My favorite tracks are "Get Her Back(Without the video)", "Lock The Door(Even if its very creepy)", "Love Can Grow Back", "Too Little Too Late", "Opposite Of Me" and "Black Tar Cloud". I think if you forget the dumb drama this album was made for as a cash grab and just listen to the music, you might find something you like. I'm not proud of it, but I actually enjoyed this album. Remember, just forget that he's a creep and sit back and listen.Read more ›

Many need to understand that Robin Thicke is a R&B singer, has been for the majority of his life. Listen to his past cds. Blurred Lines was one of those songs that had a good hook, good beat and was the summer song of 2013. That Blurred Lines album was out of the mainstream of what kind of music Robin Thicke does, in Paula this brings him BACK to R&B. Just about every single song is a hit, a crooner, lover hit. I was skeptical of naming this after his wife, especially with their relationship so public, but give him credit for addressing it and manning up to his mistakes. Marriage is a job, it is not easy, and I am sure we ALL (who are married) have stories to tell. His story is that he is a public figure and it is out there. Buy the cd or download the set, you won't be disappointed.
