Music Review: Ne-Yo - 'R.E.D.'

By November 9, 2012

Follow me on:

Music superstar Ne-Yo has said in the past that he's proud of how his music can successfully straddle the line between R&B and pop. And on his fifth studio album, R.E.D., he continues to straddle that line well, although this time out, his songs lean slightly more toward R&B. R.E.D., which stands for Realizing Every Dream and was released in the U.S. Nov. 6, 2012, is a smooth blend of musical genres. And not just contemporary R&B and pop, but Euro dance music and a little bit of Country, as well. After stumbling a bit success-wise with his brilliant but misunderstood 2010 concept album Libra Scale, Ne-Yo is back on the right track commercially with R.E.D.. Although the album isn't as adventurous lyrically or thematically as Libra Scale, it's definitely more ear-pleasing and fan-friendly. Ever since his debut album, 2006's In My Own Words, Ne-Yo has been one of the more sensitive and gentlemanly singers in R&B. And his tender and caring sides remain on full display throughout R.E.D..
