Love Out Loud
Label: eOne Music
Anthony David's fifth album doesn't have a breakout hit like "4evermore," his lush pairing with Algebra Blessett from 2011's As Above So Below. But it's a more imaginative and satisfying effort. Algebra returns for "Official," and while they don't generate as much heat as "4evermore," it's a pretty duet. On the ballad "Movie Night" he sings cleverly, "If it's good, we can get through it/ If it's no good, we can get to it." For "On My Way to Crazy" he uses a chicken-scratch rhythm akin to GZA's "Liquid Swords," and he flips a lovers rock arrangement for "Livin' It Up."
