More Than Words
Label: eOne Music
The urban adult contemporary superstar's More Than Words kicks off with the surprisingly funky "Don't Stop." He eventually slows down -- after all, this is a Brian McKnight album -- but its best cuts, like "Get U To Stay" and "Sweeter," are complemented by imaginative smooth jazz arrangements. Unfortunately, it doesn't include his hilariously nasty Internet tracks (look up "If You're Ready to Learn" if you're curious), but he sings babymaker duets with his sons Brian Jr. ("Ididn'treallymeantoturnyouout") and Niko ("The Front The Back The Side"). Like father, like sons.
