Ne-Yo: Because of You

Alfred Soto, Stylus, 9 May 2007

NE-YO'S A TRADITIONALIST, alright: like many of his R&B forebears, he has proven incapable of recording an album's worth of material. There's no noticeable advance on last year's In My Own Words: we get 12 songs, most just over four minutes, no interludes.

Total word count of piece: 589
