With its recent emphasis on overproduction and hip-hop attitude, R&B has been lacking a key ingredient: soul. Enter Price. On her third album, she delivers a rousing set filled with more fire than a Judge Judy tirade. Tackling relationship highs (”He Proposed”) and lows (”How Does It Feel”) with equal vigor, she demonstrates her immense vocal talent. But there’s more than love on her mind. She goes gospel on ”You Brought the Sunshine” and counsels the hopeless on ”Someday.”
