Without My Heart
Label: VOLTRON RECORDZ (VLR)
Tyrese's first album in nearly four years doesn't live up to 2013's TGT project, which was as fun and heroically over-the-top as the three male R&B singers who recorded it: Black Ty, Ginuwine and Tank. As a solo artist, he focuses on babymakin' tunes with modest touches, like a subtle Auto-Tune effect on "Addict" and "Waiting on You," and an acoustic guitar on "Prior to You." It's bedroom business as usual with a few highlights, including "Dumb Sh*t," the gospel flourishes of "Shame," and "Gonna Give You What You Need," where he sings, "Hold on to the bed frame while I explore your body."
