The Auto-Tune king has watched his rap-world currency wane a bit in recent years. (Blame Jay-Z, who famously issued a fatwa against the once-ubiquitous vocal-processing software.) On T-Pain’s fourth album rEVOLVEr, though, that dampened bravado actually serves him; gorgeous robo-soul ballads like ”Rock Bottom” and the Twitter romance ”Default Picture” feel as intimate as the work of any bedroom troubadour. Call it Cyborg Sings the Blues. B+
