Release Therapy

1 rating: 3.0
An album by Ludacris

Ludacris doesn't pull out any real surprises here, but he also wouldn't have lasted this long if he didn't have a talent for consistency. What's missing here are big singles. His first attempt, "Money Maker," was too color-by-numbers. There's nothing … see full wiki

[3.5]--You'll be seated between some slow jam and some dance floor tracks

`Release Therapy' is a good album for the most part but I feel it's not his strongest. It's great to see much things are happing for him. Luda wanted to show off different parts of himself in this album, which is great, but in doing so he didn't have to fully eliminate the humor that made him so popular in that he's so good at dishing out. So after I finished listening to this, it sort of left me hanging.

The main reason as to why the album is what it is, is because of the second half of it. This time around Luda has thrown in a lot of R&B into this album which explains his guest appearances (Mary J. Blige, R. Kelly, etc...) but the first half of this album is more up beat due to his supporting friends Young Jeezy, Field Mob, and Pharrell.

Luda still proves to be fantastic with his wordplay and lyrics. The tracks that stood out to me are "Money Maker," "Woozy," "End of the Night," "Ultimate Satisfaction," "Mouths to Feed," and I especially love "Grew Up a Screw Up," due to sampling of the late Notorious B.I.G voice.

It's good to see that Ludacris' moved on to his fifth release for Def Jam, even though it really makes him move away from the funnier rhymes that made him famous and toward something that's a little more meaningful which he defiantly succeed in doing. If change is what you want to hear "Release Therapy" is what you'll get.
