Brian McKnight may have made his name as a nice-guy balladeer unafraid of declaring Barry Manilow as a direct influence, but he still has a funkier side that's clearly evident on U TURN. Sporting a knit cap and shades on the cover that gives him an R.Kelly-meets-Maxwell kind of look, McKnight easily proves he can run with the big dogs by way of numerous celebrity collaborations. Nelly takes a break from the St. Lunatics to hop aboard the infectious "All Night Long", Fabolousand Six John throw down on the hard-edged title cut, and Kirk Franklin joins McKnight on the timely faith-during-wartime homily "One of The One's Who Did".

McKnight does make sure to include his share of trademark ballads, such as the heartfelt "Someday, Someway, Somehow", lush "So Sorry", and Prince-like "If It Was Cool" with its abundant falsetto harmonies. Most impressive is the contemporary-R&B summit meeting "Good Enough", which finds McKnight joined by Joe, Carl Thomas, Tyrese, and Tank for the tale of a relationship gone asunder in which half the fun is guessing who's singing whichpart. U TURN ends up being one musical manoeuver that BrianMcKnight pulls off flawlessly.

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
It's always helpful to read through articles from other writers and practice a little something from their websites.
