Album Review

2006's Coming Home was Lionel Richie's most commercially successful release since 1986's Dancing on the Ceiling. It was the first time since then that one of the singer's albums peaked within the Top Ten of the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Much of its success could be attributed to "I Call It Love," a collaboration with StarGate. So, on Just Go, Richie's fourth studio set of the 2000s, he continues to work with StarGate and adds some of their hitmaking contemporaries, namely Akon and the duo of Terius "The-Dream" Nash and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart (Rihanna's "Umbrella," Beyoncé's "Single Ladies," the-Dream's own hits). The two Akon collaborations are dominated by Akon, who co-writes, co-produces, and gets co-performance credits on both. Even on "Nothing Left to Give," the album's festive, anthemic, percussion-stuffed song à la "All Night Long" — there has been one on nearly every Richie album since Can't Slow Down on — Akon unsurprisingly writes a lead that could have been voiced by him, from its cadence to the melodically restricted hook. Nash and Stewart are less heavy-handed on their four songs, tending to meet Richie half way with a soothing, modern frame work. In these songs, as well as the five featuring StarGate's input, Richie is much more at home. Introducing a 60-year-old artist to a younger audience with new material is asking for a lot, but Richie's devoted fanbase will find plenty to like. Just Go, slightly more so than Coming Home, tends to be a happy (and comforting) medium between Richie's familiar approach and contemporary R&B.

Lionel's back to his best!!

Well what can i say! heard a few songs on radio the other day and thought they were pretty good but listening to the whole album, it seems lionel is back at his best! best songs have to be Good Morning, I'm Not Okay, Through My Eyes and Face in the Crowd. Also like the wasy he's brought Akon in on a couple. 10/10

Dissapointing, but acceptable

Lionel Richie was once the king of R&B, but with this album, most songs have no melody, or tune are just fankly boring. Lionel Richie only wrote one song (eternity) which isn't that good, the rest were written by other artists,and are generic and typical. Please Lionel, just go back to what you used to be- someone who stood out from the crowd of wannabe artists and inspired us.

Wow

Lionel never disappoints. I heard the title song at his Concert at the O2 so came straight home and bought the album. The songs will add to my extensive LR collection.

Biography

Born: 20 June 1949 in Tuskegee, AL

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After leaving the Commodores, Lionel Richie became one of the most successful male solo artists of the '80s, arguably eclipsed during his 1981-1987 heyday only by Michael Jackson and Prince. Richie dominated the pop charts during that period with an incredible run of 13 consecutive Top Ten hits, five of them number ones. As his popularity skyrocketed, Richie moved further away from his R&B origins and concentrated more on adult contemporary balladry, which had been one of his strengths even as...
