Hi-Res Booklet
Tank's seventh album is presented as a sequel to his third one. Released in 2007, Sex Love & Pain debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, was his second album to top the R&B chart, and received a Grammy nomination. When albums are connected to past triumphs, they tend to be last-gasp attempts at regaining relevance, but the singer hadn't experienced a commercial decline prior to the release of Sex Love Pain & II. B.A.M. and Tank, rather than primary Sex Love & Pain collaborators the Underdogs, produced most of these tracks, so this is no nostalgia trip. While there are some instances where Tank is either longing for his woman or seeking repentance, the bulk of the album regards its title's first word. Tank's armed with another bunch of sleek slow-jam productions to complement his libidinous verses and, more than ever, his name is representative of his lyrical subtlety as much as his build ("Make your face my chair, leaking everywhere," etc.). He's still targeting teen and young adult listeners with material that falls in line with commercial R&B radio playlists. On "#BDAY," which features three guests who range from 12 to 17 years younger than him, he declares "I just want to help you celebrate," then offers a series of directions that includes "Put them candles down and get to the cake" and "Show me that it's real." "Relationship Goals," featuring one of the album's better slinking productions, is as single-minded, though it's more about giving than "BDAY," with "How about we start with my tongue from the waist down?" and promises to "beat it up." Tank's voice is as strong as ever. The repetition of the largely unimaginative lyrics and number of indistinct productions, however, make the album verge on monotony. This is not among his better, more imaginative releases. ~ Andy Kellman

R&B - Released September 30, 2017 | R&B Money - Atlantic Records

The follow-up to Sex Love & Pain II, Savage marks the second time Durrell Babbs has released solo albums in consecutive years. He hadn't done it since his first two full-lengths came out in 2001 and 2002. Capitalizing on the commercial momentum of three straight number one R&B/hip-hop chart-toppers, Babbs refers to the previous set's "She wit the S***" and "I Love Ya" as the explicit, trap-styled template for the majority of these subtlety-free tracks. He does it with a large group of beatmakers completely different from the cast on Sex Love & Pain II, including Cardiak, Swiff D, and Stronger contributors Da Internz, as well as a bunch of newcomers. Lyrically, this is true to the title in its single-minded forcefulness -- materialistic propositions that reduce romance to a financial transaction, vows to beat it up, boxing metaphors, police detainment fantasies with actual cuffing, the works. There are sleek, steely, predominantly lurching beats to match, with Babbs occasionally adopting a vocal approach akin to significantly younger, less technically proficient vocalists like Future and Migos. The singer even has some fun with the terminology, detachedly boasting in the opener, "I'm a real fuckin' trapper/Once I set the trap, I be fuckin' somethin' after." This isn't quite as jarring as hearing a new jack swing album by an artist who debuted in the early '70s -- Babbs is genuinely plugged into the material with a voice at full, commanding power -- but the quality of the material is ultimately unexceptional. ~ Andy Kellman
