Robin Thicke’s Love After War: Why You Need This Album

Just in time for the new year, R&B king Robin Thicke has released what is probably in my opinion his best album yet.

With a perfect mix of soul and funk with a splash of hip hop and a sound that rivals any of Frank Sinatra’s standards, Thicke truly brings it in “Love After War.”

The album’s lead single “Pretty Little Heart” featuring Lil’ Wayne has a vibe that could get anyone in a crazy, sexy, cool state of mind. It’s not Weezy’s strongest featured spot, but the hook and beat are extremely infectious.

In “Never Give Up,” Thicke who is backed up by a full blown orchestra gives you goosebumps as he proclaims to pick yourself up and keep going, no matter what your setback. (It’s my official theme for 2012).

“Cloud 9” is another favorite that makes me think whether Thicke had his super star/super sexy wife Paula Patton in mind when he produced the album.

The truth is, Robin Thicke is cool. Not only is his music cool, but he stays true to the art and genre of R&B Soul. This album can be played from beginning to end, which is a rarity in this day and age. I think Adele’s 21 was probably the only other album released this year that had the same effect, and we all know how that ended up.

“Love After War” is definitely an album I would recommend getting ASAP, especially with Valentine’s Day around the corner, the 17-track set will truly set the mood.
