iTunes Review

In this unstable market, pop stars must be businessman and like any good CEO Usher has decided to diversify with Here I Stand. After watching Beyonce and Rihanna dominate the charts with a pop song (“Irreplaceable”) and a rock song (“Umbrella”) respectively, Usher diverts from his R&B signature long enough to try out “What’s A Man To Do”, an acoustic-based number that feels like a rejoinder to “Irreplaceable”. Over the course of the album, Usher tries out as many styles of R&B as he has room for. The glossy disco of “Revolver” and “This Ain’t Sex” reflect Usher’s perpetual mission to update Off the Wall-era Michael Jackson, while “Here I Stand” is a passionate plea on par with Brian Mcknight’s ballads. Of course, ever since “Yeah!” spent an astonishing 12 weeks at #1 in the spring of 2004, Usher’s calling card has been party-starting club music. “What’s Your Name”, “Appetite”, and the cheap-yet-amazing “Love In this Club” will most definitely have your hands in the air, but to get to the finest Usher has to offer, go to “Best Thing” and “Something Special”. The first is the kind of solid no-nonsense R&B/rap track that they just don’t make anymore; the latter is an unadorned soul song that showcases just how much Usher can do with his still-boyish voice.

Customer Reviews


The albums missing its BEST SONG "that girl right there"!! when i heard it months ago i loved it and automatically bought the album and ITS NOT EVEN HERE!! now i dont like this album as much too many mids and not enough uptempos. But the album is good without it i changed my opinion from bad to good after a few days listening u just need to understand it not as young anf fun and more grown up and mature.

Slightly Disappointed

Doesn't match up to confessions on any level at all. The songs all seem to have the same feel, except for a one or two tracks. Confessions had like 7 or 8+ amazing tracks, this has 2 or 3 at best. Sorry Usher, I'm a big fan, but be careful, 'cause a certain Chris Brown, might be here to steal your crown.

Something Special

Confessions has already gone down as a classic R&B album, and therefore it makes it all the harder for him to meet the level of that a second time round. However, despite that it's not at the level of Confessions it IS a good R&B album. Must have songs: Love In This Club (1st single) Moving Mountains (2nd single) Best Thing (feat. Jay-Z) Here I Stand Love In This Club Pt II (feat. Beyonce & Lil' Wayne) What's A Man To Do

After Usher Raymond was spotted by a LaFace record executive at a talent show in his hometown of Atlanta, his career took off in no time. The 14-year-old auditioned for LaFace co-founder L.A. Reid, who signed the gospel choir boy to a recording contract. Raymond was introduced to the world simply as "Usher," and released his debut album of the same name in 1994, which featured co-executive producer Sean "Puffy" Combs. The first single, "Think of You," gained Usher wide recognition and reached gold...
