This review is from: This Is How I Feel [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
This Is How I Feel is the fifth album from R&B/Soul singer Tank. Tank is a veteran in the R&B scene, but has yet to really breakthrough into the mainstream as a star in the R&B genre or in the music scene. Tankfs voice takes you back to the sounds heard on old school 80s R&B and the album brings back the now mostly lost 80s R&B sound.
Tank doesnft really have a commercial sound to him that you would hear constantly on many radio stations, so I understand why he hasnft become a star in the music scene. Even though this album may not gain Tank commercial success, the album will greatly please fans of R&B and fans of what Tank has previously released. The album is consistent throughout and is infused with some hip hop sounds mixed into some of the songs on the album. This Is How I Feel is one of Tankfs better releases, although itfs too bad that his music isnft visible outside of R&B music.
Tankfs songwriting and singing abilities are great and are shown off on each track on the album in this album filled with sensual old school R&B music. The album features T.I., Kevin McCall, Busta Rhymes, Chris Brown and Chris Stephens. Almost all of the features are great and add to the song except for Busta Rhymesfs feature on Nowhere which was my least favorite track on the album. On the other hand T.I., Kevin McCall, Chris Stephens and Chris Brown all have great features on the album and are featured on three of my top five songs from the album.
With This Is How I Feel, Tank delivers yet another good R&B album, but with the album most of the songs sound extremely similar and it would have been nice to see Tank show more versatility and exit his comfort zone for a song or two on the project. This Is How I Feel gets three stars for being a solid R&B album, although the sound of the album is repetitive to the material found on his previous releases.
