Album Review

Libra Scale was the first Ne-Yo release that failed to go platinum. The quasi-concept album didn't come close to making it halfway there. The singer and songwriter, however, wasn't on the brink of recording covers for Shanachie. The album's "Champagne Life" was long lasting on commercial radio, and featured spots on Pitbull's "Give Me Everything" (number one Hot 100), Young Jeezy's "Leave You Alone" (number three Hot R&B/Hip-Hop), and Calvin Harris' "Let's Go" (number 17, Hot 100) propped him up through the release of this, his first album for Motown — the label employing him as Senior Vice President of A&R. Given Ne-Yo's success with Euro-flavored dance-pop and the continued marginalization of R&B, chances were slim that he would be inspired by his new label to stick to the latter genre. In terms of its place in the Motown legacy, R.E.D. is much closer to a modern-day Dancing on the Ceiling — with several variations on the title track — than In a Special Way. This is actually back-loaded with dance-pop; while the serviceable but indistinct "Let Me Love You" comes along early and the dance-pop/R&B hybrid "Be the One" leads the second half, the three-track closing stretch reveals dance-pop as the dominant style. Ne-Yo does not go through the motions, but the songs carry an air of "going about my job in a compliant, professional manner." There's a contemporary country duet co-written by Luke Laird (Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Eric Church) and co-sung by Tim McGraw, as well as an adult contemporary ballad. The highlights are all casual, subtle, finely detailed midtempo numbers and slow jams.

Customer Reviews

From the start to now...

Since his first album I've been in love with his amazing voice! This album really typifies his extraordinary writing and that breath taking voice of his! This is real RnB!!


Absolutely loving the new album. I've been a fan since 2005 and without being too crazy about the last few singles he's released, this album more than makes up for it. In a year of fairly disappointing albums Ne-Yo's kept my faith. This album is sounding like his original albums which i love and this is just as good as he's always been, if not...better! The Ballads are beautiful and the upbeat tracks are fun. My Immediate favourites are: Lazy Love, Miss Right, Jealous, She Is, Carry On (Her Letter To Him) and Should Be You.
Ne-Yo is one of the best songwriters around and if you're a fan this won't disappoint!! Love It!!


My favourite track is Jealous. Is it me or is it that ne- yo just keeps on getting better and better!!! His best album yet!!!

Ne-Yo was one of the most successful songwriters and artists of the 2000s. His breakthrough didn't come until late 2004, as the co-songwriter of Mario's "Let Me Love You," a number one Hot 100 hit that Billboard later determined to be the eighth most successful single of the decade. By the close of 2009, however, Ne-Yo had racked up a career's worth of accomplishments. He released three albums, all of which went platinum in the United States. Seven of his singles, as well as five on which he appeared...
