Is Usher's 'Looking 4 Myself' His Best Album Since 'Confessions'?
However, The Washington Post are claiming that 'Looking 4 Myself' is his best album since 2004's 'Confessions,' an album that went on to sell 20 million copies worldwide. The Post writes "[Confessions] is less concerned with inclusion of both styles and more focused on seamlessly integrating them."
It's praise that can be backed up elsewhere, with Rolling Stone praising the album's diversity and saying "Club rave-ups, hip-hop ballads, synth pop, blaxploitation funk, a Max Martin song, a Will.i.am jam that borrows from 'Uptown Girl' - all here," and The Guardian in the UK writing "Looking 4 Myself' is bloated and self-conscious, but when it hits the spot it's a feast of detailed, brilliantly gleaming R&B." With the album out this week, it'll be interesting to see what kind of dent it'll make in the Billboard charts.
