John Legend, ‘Evolver’ (G.O.O.D. Music/Columbia)

Though he’s unlikely to encounter much trouble selling these romantic conceits to his female-heavy fan base, some of the scenarios on John Legend’s third studio album could be fresher: In “Good Morning,” for example, he attempts to convince his lady to skip work and spend all day snuggling. Yet with its invigorating forays into up-tempo electro pop (“Green Light,” featuring André 3000), body-rockin’ reggae (“No Other Love,” with Estelle), and dreamy psychedelic soul (“I Love, You Love”), Evolver proves that Legend remains one of R&B’s most forward-looking craftsmen.
