Details Release Date: Aug 17, 2010; Lead Performance: Kem; Genre: R&B

Get comfortable, turn the lights low, and let Kem tell you how just much he loves and/or misses you. The arrangements on his third LP embody the title's Intimacy, complementing his honeyed vocals with gentle acoustic strumming, soft taps on a snare drum, and occasional understated keyboard and brass lines. Cynics may carp that the album would benefit from a touch more variety, but if you're in the right mood, you won't mind. B
