Product Description

Tank was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and raised in Clinton, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C.. Tank took an instant interest in singing and playing the piano, partially due to his alliance to religion his cousin directed the church choir and helped the aspiring vocalist foster his singing talent from an early age. His stage name comes from his chiseled physique. A multi-sport athlete in high school, he had the opportunity to play college football. However, Tank decided to focus on music, and his talent eventually led him to an opportunity to sing background vocals for Ginuwine during one of Ginuwine's tours. Next, he found himself singing with Aaliyah and then Blackground Records founder Barry Hankerson, and his son (and company president) Jomo Hankerson took notice, offering Tank the opportunity to become a solo artist. Tank was blessed with the opportunity to become a solo artist in 2001, releasing his debut album Force of Nature. This LP garnered a top 10 R&B ballad, Maybe I Deserve . As a follow up to his debut Gold album, he released his second album, One Man. Tank has collectively sold over 1 million albums, and now he brings you his third heartfelt album, Love, Sex, & Pain. This is the explicit version.

Amazon.com

Tank, on Sex, Love & Pain, is like Luther Vandross only slightly lewder: He'll be the first to admit, as he does on the three-part opening track "Coldest," that he's "somewhat of a hustler out here on the street... occasional strip clubs and shots of Hennessy." That doesn't stop him from laying his heart on the line, though. Repeatedly. Midtempo grooves like "I'm Coming Home," a hopeful reunion song, and "Heartbreaker," a limber-voiced lament that outlines a crumbled relationship, show Tank's tender side and take the romantically inclined places more real-seeming than Luther's songs. Throughout the long lineup of love-gone-wrong tracks, the brawny guy with the tattooed back doesn't forget his playful side, either. Before Timbaland sidles up and gets closing track "I Love Them Girls" all trademark-sizzly, Tank does some titillating of his own via the sexed-up steamer "My Body." --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

I think this is Tanks best album to date.

This is one of the few R&B albums of late that you can listen to from beginning to end without skipping tracks.

Tank is yet another early 00s artist to return back to the music business. This year has been full of what I pen as R&B "Resurrections". Musiq returned after a four-year absense with his chart-topping LUVANMUSIQ, Joe returned after a four year absent with his Grammy worthy AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE ME, and now we have Tank, returning solidly with his third album, SEX, LOVE & PAIN. The difference between Tank and Joe or Musiq is that Tank has never had success just come to him. He is an underrated adult R&B singer. Worse is adult R&B isn't what's truly selling in the R&B industry anymore - hip-hop is predominant via more contemporary-centered artists such as "young boy" Chris Brown, Lloyd, Omarion, Usher, and so on. However, with his moderate radio hit, the exceptional "Please Don't Go", which at the time of writing this review was #3 on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B Singles Chart, Tank may have a chance to get the praise and the success that he's never recieved before. No, SEX, LOVE & PAIN is no masterpiece, and it doesn't for me stack up to be among the very best R&B albums of 2007 (though it is solid & good), but it is worthy of success by all means.

The album opens up deceptively. The first track is listed to be "Coldest" when in reality there is a hidden introductory track that is named after the title. I wish the executives at Blackground had of seperated "Sex, Love & Pain" and "Coldest" because "Sex, Love & Pain" is more than just an interlude. Here, the songwriting is top-notch and the bombastic, energized refrain with lovely vocals via Tank and exceptional background vocals makes for a great number that didn't have to be embedded within another track. Just as well, "Coldest" ends up being a fine track with great songwriting.

Tank and Tamia may go down as the most underrated R&B singers of all time.They're both 2 very talented singers.I think this is Tanks best album to date.I own every single Tank album (''Forces Of Nature'',''One Man'' and ''Sex Love & Pain''.I've also seen Tank live in concert here in Houston.His vocals are unbelieveable.I can listen to this cd from beginning to end.This is a very good break up album.My favorite tracks are of course ''Please Don't Go'',''I Hate U'',''Heartbreaker'',''Who Dat'',Wedding song'' and my absolute favorite ''My Heart''(this song will have you in tears if you ever experienced a sad break up).If you're into real singing this is the album for you.

I'm so glad Tank stuck to the mellow, slower tunes instead of trying to hip-hop it up. This is a smooth cd with some nice mid-tempo songs and some heart wrenching slow jams. Sounds like his heart is on every track.

Ok people are really sleeping on Tank! This a very good CD. You can play from beginning to end. There are "get your groove on" tracks and "get your freak on" tracks. Also some nice ballad type songs thrown in too.

Tank - Sex, Love & Pain (Blackground, 2007)

The problem that I have with Tank is that although he is a force when he writes for other artists like Aaliyah, Jon B. and Jamie Foxx, he stumbles when it comes to his own albums. The lead-off single is usually the only good song on the album ("Maybe I Deserve" from Force of Nature and "One Man" from the album of the same name) and this case is no different.

"Please Don't Go" is the winner from this album but another good song is "My Heart" and that's about it. This album suffers from mediocre lyricism and a certain skit that goes on and on with no point. Though he's from my hometown (Milwaukee), I can't even show any bias towards him. I advise all to borrow before buying unless you're a fan. -EJR

All I got to say is dayum--Tank really did it with this album. I bought his first album when it came out and really loved that one, but this is different, more soulful and hypnotic, this is the type of music you want to be playin in the background when you are about to get your groove on. The first time I listened to it, I thought it was ok, but when you listen to the lyrics and that sexy voice --mmmmm--this is definitely worth your time and money. Love me some Tank!

I personally really like this cd. This brother has a very soulful voice. My only issue is why he's always singing about a man losing a good woman after the fact. I mean, I can appreciate what he's trying to say..But, damn..make an album that says what a brother can do to keep her before he loses her. lol
I play this cd alot. Definitely a nice cd to play with a nice glass of wine and good company. lol
