The best way to end 2011,
This review is from: Love After War [2 CD Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
I was not a fan of Sex Therapy in fact I disliked it for the simple fact he had too many rappers on it, used falsetto a lot, album had no feel or flow and it was just not good enough as per Thicke's standard. December 6th Love After War did not drop but emanated. It emanate in the sense that this album flows so well I don't know whether to drink it or put it in an aquarium. Its by far the best Thicke album I've listened to. Evolution of... was my favorite and I used it as the bench mark to rate the albums after. Robin has surpassed Evolution of... by miles with Love after War. Sex therapy must have been a nasty war of ideas because this album is just love and it comes together lovely. Out goes the Christmas music in comes Love after War I see myself playing this until valentines its that good.
I have yet to skip a song on this album as all the songs are magnificent. You could tell Robin wanted to take the throwback route like Rafael Saadiq and R. Kelly but instead he took the Cee-lo route and used an cool updated sound.He has a mix of soul, neo-soul, blues, rnb etc. Having only got the album today I hate to pick a favorite song/songs but so far 'Love After War', 'I Don't Know How It Feels To Be You', 'Never Give Up','Boring' are my favorites. An addendum 'All Tied Up' and the updated version of 'Stupid Things' just made the favorite list that will surely keep growing as this album stays on repeat.

I was going to write a review of this album but now I don't have to. We both heard the same things and felt the same way. I don't know how you got into my head. Maybe next week I will beat you to the Anthony Hamilton review.

thank Ricky, I wasn't sure how this would be received. Sorry for stealing your words but I guess we both felt the cd. I've been busy this week and I'm still listening to Love After War that I don't think I'll have time to listen to Back to Love. I'll await your review for it and let you know if you stole my words. Again thanks for the kind words.
