iTunes Review

With his sophomore album, Terius Youngdell Nash, a.k.a. The-Dream, bridges the futuristic sound designs of Kanye West with the slow-jam balladry of his childhood heroes, Keith Sweat and R. Kelly. Like West, his most comparable contemporary, and his idol, Michael Jackson, The-Dream is a musical triple-threat: a singer, songwriter, and producer all rolled into his one. “Rockin’ That Sh**,” “Love Vs. Money,” and “Right Side of My Brain” meld the grandiose synthesizers of Kanye’s “Good Life” to the intricate sonic textures of Timbaland, and as with Timbaland’s best work, multiple listens reveal layers of subtle ornamentation, including bizarre sound effects and stuttering vocal samples. “Put It Down,” “Sweat It Out,” and “Mr. Fancy” update R. Kelly’s method of making lustful-yet-playful slow jams, while “Kelly’s 12 Play” is a more direct tribute to Kelly’s recipe. Of course, The-Dream’s taste for experimentation wouldn’t mean a thing if he didn’t have the knack for catchy melodies, as displayed in “Walkin’ On the Moon,” “My Love,” and “Take U Home 2 My Mama.” He has yet to reach the heights of Thriller, but Love Vs. Money confirms The-Dream’s reputation as one of modern pop’s masterminds.

The Dream*****

Rockin that Sh*t- definately a banger 5/5 Walkin on the Moon- The Dream and Mr. West definately complement each other. Radio banger 5/5 My Love- Classy Slow jam with Mariah. Didnt like it at first but it grew on me. We've been missing Mariahs beautiful voice :) 4/5 Put It Down- The beats good, versus could be better but still a good joint. A grindin song most. Lol "dream can make u sing like mariah" def 3.5 Sweat It out- Love makin joint, successful for what it was meant for. 4/5 Take U Home 2 My mama- Synth beat is cool. Picks the ablums tempo up 4/5 Love vs. Money- Production immediately catchy. Can feel the pain in verse and beat. Radio hit. 5/5 Love vs. Money pt 2- Feels like a continuation. Beat picks up throughout the song 5/5 Fancy- A dreamy kind of feel to this song. He really sings to this one with the piano background. 3.5/5 Right side of my Brain- Has a Timberland feel to the beat. Its cool, i expect Flo Rida to spit a verse on this one. 4.5/5 Mr.Yea- Old school feel to it. Feels like a Shorty is a 10 kinda song- 3.5/5 Kellys 12 Play- Darker, sexier song. Sweetness 5/5 Let Me See the Booty- Funkier beat but with Lil Jon on the track prolly going to be a club banger. 4/5

The 1st must-buy album of 2009

The Dream delivers on one of the best R&B albums in recent memory

I can't believe this dude wrote Umbrella!

No, I take that back. I CAN believe he wrote it, as long as I'm right about him writing the best track on the album, My Love. But it's not just that, the whole album is amazing!
