Recently, I had the chance to listen to R&B singer Tank's latest album, "Now Or Never." It has been a little over three years since his latest album was released, so there was much anticipation for his newest CD. The album consists of thirteen tracks, two of which are introductions. The album remains consistent with the smooth vibe of his previous albums.
Tank provides us with a project that is straight R&B and based on the one thing many of us are familiar with—love. The topics he touches on range from making your significant other feel special just because of how amazing they are as a person, to being willing to do anything for their forgiveness. The tracks that stood out immediately were the album’s first single “Emergency, ” and his remake of the popular song, “I Can’t Make You Love Me, ” originally performed by Bonnie Raitt. While most of the songs on the album are slow, it is far from disappointing.
As with his previous releases, there are tracks that can be played ten years from now and still sound good. Though the lyrics are more appropriate for a mature audience, a person who enjoys good Rhythm and Blues music will enjoy “Now Or Never.”
