”I’ve been away too long a while,” sings Eric Benét on his first album in six years. Happily, Hurricane finds him making a strong comeback. Opener ”Be Myself Again” is a bluesy, Ben Harper-ish number, but from there it’s bittersweet R&B, loaded with lyrics evoking his tabloid-ravaged marriage to actress Halle Berry, which ended earlier this year. More downbeat than past efforts, but Benét’s Wonder-ful voice ensures that some sunshine breaks through.
