Slicker Than Your Average

Lead Performer: Craig David; Producer (group): Atlantic, Wildstar

David has a voice that’s fresh and expressive, so it doesn’t bode well that on what’s only his second album, he’s also an artist already reduced to singing about the burdens of fame. Or that he so eagerly collaborated with a true slickster, Sting, on a slice of generic soul. Or that his rapid rapping on ”Eenie Meenie” is more a stunt than a skill. Thank goodness David can still lay down some good pop balladry (”Personal,” ”What’s Changed”).
