The-Dream, 'Love King' (Radio Killa/Def Jam)

8
Love King
Critical Mass
Label: Radio Killa/Def Jam

by Marc Hogan

"Radio killa"? Sure, but the R&B ATLien behind "Umbrella" and "Single Ladies" is also an auteur of weirdly personal, brilliantly lowbrow, and dazzlingly state-of-the-art pop?albums. As bawdy, referential, and effortless-sounding as ever, Terius "The-Dream" Nash takes his long-playing love affair to the next level on this third solo effort, fading snappy summer-jam contenders into seething urban-rock suites. Mostly, though, The-Dream loves to love, so much so that you can hear it through the fourth wall: "Know this song is over / But I can't get up off ya."
