Ne-Yo’s isn’t satisfied with the state of R&B. He said so himself. But instead of being bitter, he took himself to task and released last year’s delight, R.E.D. Honesty is the best policy. And Ne-Yo shows his vulnerability with “Cracks in Mr. Perfect” before segueing into the baby maker “Lazy Love”. Compatibility seems to be a reoccurring theme throughout R.E.D. He seeks for his better half on (“Be The One”, “Miss Right”) and with Wiz Khalifa as a wingman, he finds his perfect match on “Don’t Make Em Like You”. But things aren’t always peachy and “Carry On (Her Letter To Him)” makes breaking up hard to do. Hate to say it, but if it takes bad R&B to inspire Ne-Yo, he should see RED more often.
