iTunes Review

This long-awaited sequel gives 2007's Sex Love & Pain healthy competition in the raw sexuality department. Tank's visceral, playful R&B bares all from the opener, "SLP2," which sets the rose petal-covered stage with so much cheeky bravado and throbbing beatwork it could double as an R. Kelly B-side. Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman lends support as our host shares his heart ("Already in Love"), but drop-ins from a woozy Rich Homie Quan ("She wit the S***") and a club-ready Chris Brown ("#BDAY") confirm that this is a body party through and through.

Cannot call this "r&b/soul", especially the soul part

First let me say I knew this would not be good based on the first two singles and the song titles. Now that's out, I'm sad to say that I was correct. This music is horrible. Sure the beats are okay from time to time, but the lyrics are trashy. "She with the s**t, I'm talkin' diarrhea." No joke, it actually says that in this album. I don't think anybody wants to hear about diarrhea when they are making love, at least not me. Also this album has no soul. iTunes should make two different genres, one called "r&b" and one called "soul" Sorry Tank, but you let me down this time. I am only 17 years old, but I know good music. Stronger was a great album, I may be young but I love grown and sexy r&b, like Johnny Gill's Game Changer album, not this juvenile mess of sounds. Anybody who features Rich Homie Quan, Wale and Yo Gotti on one album is just begging for attention.

Content overshadows Tank's brilliance...

Seems like just yesterday that Tank was giving to the homeless and reading books on how a better him could be found. Guess he wasn't kidding in that interview about making music that the label KNEW would sell. Absolutely love Tank and think he's one of the most underrated & gifted vocalists of the past 10+ years, but some of the lyrical content on this album is just cringe worthy. I hate to hear potentially great songs and melodies ruined by explicit content, which is exactly what happened to 50% of this album. The pioneers of soul/r&b made sensual music without being blatantly crude, but that's not what you'll get here. Nearly every track contains obscenities that come across as completely unnecessary, whether Tank's goal is to sell more records or not. The song SLP2 is the most blatant JODECI imitation (circa Diary of a Mad Band) that I've ever heard, but Tank absolutely kills it and it's an album standout nonetheless. The collab with Shawn Stockman is CRAZY, and there are a few other songs that don't go too far over the top into the explicit realm. Tank's harmonies and runs are incredible as always, but personally I was really hoping for more content like "Stronger" but mixed with the contemporary style and sound of this project.

Tank does it again

I have all of tanks music and all I can say is that I can do "better for you".
