5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant R'n'B album 27 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
Usher's career kicked off in 1987 Atlanta and the wheel of fortune hasn't stopped turning for him since. With this, his third album, he has developed both as a singer and a songwriter from what we saw on My Way. The album nicely mixes slower ballads with songs that get you up and dancing as a more mature Mr Raymond shows he's quite possibly this generation's Michael Jackson. From the slower grooves of the loved-up 'U Got It Bad' and 'How Do I Say' to the pounding Neptunes and Shek'spere base lines on 'U Don't Have To Call' and 'TTP', from the instantly catchy 'U Remind Me' and 'U-Turn' to the genuinely heartfelt 'Can U Help Me' and 'Separated', by way of the uplifting 'Pop Ya Collar', Usher has produced a mature album that shows you can still have fun. Sure, there are touches of bravado about 'If I Want To' and 'Good Ol' Ghetto', but it's this slight overflowing of confidence that makes this an excellent album. The guest appearances by P Diddy, Pharell Williams and Kelis are also worthy of note. If this and the new single 'Yeah' are what we can expect from his new album 'Confessions', then bring it on!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic New Album from Usher 26 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a great fan of Usher and have most of his work in my CD Collection, but this Album in one word, blew his older albums away. The Songs in this album are to suit absolutely every mood that is going. You have 'U GOT IT BAD' which is a fantastic rnb ballad with fantastic lyrics, sometimes you feel he is just singing about you. You have the great song 'I Don't Know' which features P Diddy, (they work so well together). Off course we have the other top 10 hits, Pop Ya Collar and U Remind me which just want to get you up dancing. This has to be the best Album i have bought in years. If you enjoy Usher and you havent got this yet, i suggest you rush out and get a copy now. 8701 - only problem with this album, what on earth is 8701.... :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent album.. 10 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album by Usher, I have brought this album on hearing Confessions, but this album by far outweighs any albums he has esatablished so far. The album is well constructed, it is almost written in a ballad form and it directly addresses the theme of love - a meticulous beginning by the song U remind me and a brilliant ending by the song Separated. He has truly shown his talent and outhweighed his critics in this album, as the songs he protays has an element of subtlity encapsulated within it, each song has a deep meaning and thoroughly constructed. The song U got it bad is a brilliant example, it is almost as if he is referring to you directly. In addition, the guest appearances by P Diddy, Pharell Williams and Kelis are also worthy of note, and adds a huge impact on the album. There is a mix of rap in the album but the majority of the songs are dominated by the sole voice of Usher in an R&N&B manner, making this album an excellent hear for any music fan. Usher has risen from a teenage 13 year old to a mature 25 year old. This album is a vivid demonstration of his maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars 8701 pulls you in and never lets go 14 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Usher returns with an album that can only be described as "brillient".
Usher collaborates with the finest r&b producers of our time including Jermaine Dupri and The Neptunes to bring together a collection of tracks that get your blood flowing and your feet tapping while at the same time makes you passionate about love again.
The high-profile collaboration with P. Diddy "I Don't Know" is a big dissapointment - not even the Neptunes smooth funky production can save this one - but "U Don't Have To Call" makes you just wanna party.
The incredible "Separated" and "U Got It Bad" are Usher ballards of note and are the high points of the album.
The albums flows amazing and its a definitely best buy! Worth ever penny.
If your're not interested in r&b at all - then this is one that can change your mind!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh,Funky,Fantastic 13 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Usher's latest release is a mixture of soulful R'n'B ballads and edgy hip-hop tunes. The songs pop ya collar and u remind me r quality pop/R'n'B singles.The pick of the ballads are all produced by R'n'B legends Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, how do i say, can u help me and separated.These songs r good but they are nowhere near as sultry or soulful as Nice and slow from Ushers first album My Way.The stand out track is I Don't Know which is produced by the Neptunes and features a rap from newly named P Diddy. Overall the album is better than My Way and the song Hottest thing is a perfect description of Usher and his album!!A definate must buy for Usher fans and R'n'B fans.It's fresh and funky!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... If you have nay doubts BUY IT! 25 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the first r'n'b album I bought, and is the only modern r'n'b album in my collection. It was really an impulse buy - I enjoyed the catchiness of 'Pop Ya Collar' and 'U Remind Me'. I have never been more happy with a purchase!
Usher is the perfect singer - he can hold a note better than nearly every singer I've heard. He is the new 'King' of r'n'b, but he seems more like a Prince. Young, fresh, clever, exciting and handsome.
Usher has combined rap with his songs, featuring P Diddy and JD. JD has a nasal tone - think of Eminem, but with different subject matter. The three singles are all fantastic. 'U Remind Me' and 'Pop Ya Collar' are upbeat, party affairs, hook-laden with clever lyrical twists. Usher is a very good lyricist, though he takes on a lot of production and musical help. 'U Got It Bad' shows off his voice to its full - the slow version is also better than the single mix. Of the album tracks, my favourites, from the range of excellence, would be 'Twork It Out', 'Good Ol' Ghetto' and 'U-Turn'. 'Twork It Out' is Usher in his sexiest mood. It may seem crass, but the way the lyrics are written make it come together perfectly. 'Good Ol' Ghetto' is upbeat party song, for those summer days - 'Told my men I'm having a barbecue - So grab some folks - Let U slide right through'. He spells every 'you' as 'U' in the album, by the way. Finally 'U-Turn' is a perfect social commentary for America over the last twenty or so years. The chorus is Usher at his catchiest, and best. 'Seperated' is very cheesy, but I can still take it!
This album may not age great, as it is full of the sounds and production of the moment, but it is a perfect snapshot of what life is like. With clever lyrics, snappy rhythms, catchy songs and great singing, this is one you have to buy. An added bonus is the glossy album sleeve - Usher looking his best!
