Product Description

Product Description

CD

Amazon.co.uk

A CD is always more compelling when you know it's lifted from the artist's autobiography, and that's certainly the case with Confessions, Usher's first record since 2001's 8701. The Atlanta singer's string of hits over the past decade have been decidedly under-18s rated, almost veering towards teen pop, but he's changed all that on this coproduced offering, which he claims is "the real him". It would be too simplistic to just brand this record a break-up record, chronicling his public split with TLC's Rozonda "Chili" Thomas; it is that, but so much more. It would be more accurate to call this Usher's coming-of-age record, bridging the gap from boy to man, as he navigates the emotional fallout from the disintegration of his relationship and the events that led up to it--real or imagined.

But other than a guilty conscience, it seems unclear why Usher feels compelled to disgorge his secret life, as he documents his infidelities, transgressions and emotional perfidy in the album's prodigious 17 songs that range from insinuating sultry R&B grooves to the decidedly crunky "Yeah", which pairs an insistent keyboard romp with Lil' Jon's assertive beats and Ludacris' rather humid rhymes. This tracks shines all the more since it's the only club track, but you find yourself pining for more, since most of the other songs tend to get bogged down in his lush, feverish balladry. That's not a bad thing, but the disc would have been better served by a few more muscular tracks. --Jaan Uhelszki, Amazon.com

Confessions is a fanatastic album and you would think the original couldn't be beaten. The special edition version is just as good, with a remix of "Confessions Part II" featuring the unstoppable Kanye West and the beautiful duet "My Boo" with Alicia Keys.
The album continues through the original format until track 18, when you realise the tracks "Whatever I want" and "Confessions Part I" have been removed. The special edition may advertise itself as having 4 bonus tracks, but in fact you are only getting 2 extra tracks. Whichever version you decide to purchase, you will always feel like you are missing out. I feel Usher let his fans down here as in order to enjoy the full Confessions experience you would need to purchase both albums.

Even though this album doesn't come out till March 23rd he has been previewing some tracks and from what I've heard they're pretty good! The first single 'Yeah' will be familiar with it's Atlanta crunk influence and buzzing synths.Then there is 'Burn' which is a ballad which talks about relationships. There is also 'Confessions II' a little mid-tempo number produced by Jermaine Dupri and the hi-NRG influenced 'Caught Up'. There will be more material coming soon and this looks like it's shaping up to be his best album yet!!!!!

Usher's latest contribution "Confessions" is a strong album that should be remembered by the powers that be when it comes to Grammy considerations for nominees.
The album's hit first single "Yeah!" is anomalous on the album as there are not any other club tracks that are bold. However the album is not a wallowing sea of forlorn love songs.
Quite the opposite the title track "Confessions" makes you wander what Usher has been up to since his last album "8701". Atlanta's bravest offers a medley of smooth ballad R&B (Burn; Simple Things) with some head-nodding tracks (Caught Up; Yeah!; Bad Girl)
Most importantly the album is sexually assertive and shows a mature Usher who has grown up since the days of "My Way" with tracks like "bad Girl", "That's What Its Made For" and "Do It To Me".
This is definitely an album to play with friends around BBQ in the summer and should be in everyone's CD wallet sleeve for their car and on heavy rotation in iPods.
I agree with other reviews that the album could do with more of the trademark dance tracks that have become synonymous with Usher for the sake of seeing his ever impressive dancing in music videos. Possibly Confessions has a more important theme of showing a matured Usher which is evident in every track. Worth every penny.

"Confessions," the fifth long-player from Usher, is more than a new album. It's also a mature step forward and an exercise in self-examination. Here, Usher unloads some serious baggage, ranging from infedelity (the title track and "truth hurts"), materialism ("Simple Things"), unwanted pregnancy (the title track again), and failed relationships, particularly his breakup with TLC's Chili. But that's not to say "Confessions" is all drama and no fun. The album is neatly divided between uptempo jams and smooth ballads, and Usher doesn't disappoint on either front. At first listen, I wasn't a huge fan of the kickoff single "Yeah!" (featuring Ludacris and Lil'Jon), but over time, this catchy hip-hop flavoured number caught onto me quickly. Other decent cuts are "Superstar," the Jam & Lewis-produced "That's What It's Made For," and the downtempo groove, "Follow Me." Well produced and with minimal filler (I could have done without the messy "Do it To Me"), "Confessions" lives up to its title thanks to its honest lyrics and its tight production.

Its definitely a good r&b album. If your expecting to hear a 8701 part 2, dont! Its is completely different!!! PURE R&B. Mostly slow type jams, theres nothing similiar to how uptempo "Yeah" is except "Caught Up" which is a Neptunes track. "Follow me" is sorta uptempo too. But thats about it! Just Blaze has a track on there as well called "Throwback" but thats somewhat slow as well.
Its gonna take me a minute to get into this, I think if i listen to the lyrics more than the beat then i'll fall in love with it even more. My fav songs so far are "Confessions", "Burn" (which is like a U Got It Bad Part 2) and "Bad Girl", and "Truth Hurts". One thing that is obvious is that you can see how he has progressed from 8701. Definitely more mature!! A good album!! :)

"Confessions," the fifth long-player from ATL's Usher Raymond, is more than a new album. It's also a mature step forward and an exercise in self-examination. Here, Usher unloads some serious baggage, ranging from infidelity (the title track and "Truth Hurts"), materialism ("Simple Things"), unwanted pregnancy (the title track again), and failed relationships, particularly his breakup with TLC's Chili. But that's not to say "Confessions" is all drama and no fun. The album is neatly divided between uptempo jams and smooth ballads, and Usher doesn't disappoint on either front.

Other decent cuts are "Superstar," the Jam & Lewis-produced "That's What It's Made For," and the downtempo groove of the killer closer, "Follow Me." Well produced and with minimal filler (I could have done without the messy "Do it To Me"), "Confessions" lives up to its title thanks to its honest lyrics and its tight production. Grade: B.
