Details Release Date: Dec 15, 2009; Lead Performance: Robin Thicke; Genre: R&B

The son of Growing Pains' Alan Thicke has built a career singing the sort of classy, nonthreatening slow jams that befit a squeaky-clean sitcom dad's heir. Robin Thicke takes a few more risks on his fourth album, Sex Therapy, slinging falsetto boasts and come-ons over futuristic electro-funk backdrops with frequent assists from rappers like Jay-Z and The Game. Plenty of other contemporary artists have been treading similar ground for years, but until Justin Timberlake gets around to making another album, this just might be the next best thing. B+
