Love After War

Genre: R&B; Run Dates: 12/06/2011; Status: In Season; Music Label: Geffen

The ”Lost Without U” crooner and Growing Pains scion continues to bound from one R&B mutation to another on his ever-seductive fifth album. Thicke’s creamy voice adds dynamism to the coffeehouse slow jam ”All Tied Up,” the Spanish-guitar-kissed ”Lovely Lady,” and the Prince-ly ”I Don’t Know How It Feels to Be U.” At 17 tracks, his loverman act grows a little exhausting, but perhaps he’s just giving wannabe lotharios a seduction time frame to aspire to.
