There's a certain somehting I had to think about before I posted this review: Sociocide isn't exactly the demographic that enjoys music in the "Soul" and "R&B" genres. If you don't like this album, however, it's because you've been eternally cursed by Zeus to be unable to appreciate good music.

John Legend, if you were so inclined, could only be described with one word:

Sex.

I am PERFECTLY ok with this concept, and I'll tell you why. John manages to infuse his music with a level of sexual awareness that is unrivaled. Now, you say to yourself, "That's simply untrue, Kai, I mean, Tenacious D has TONS of sexual lyrics." And that, my good sir, is where the difference lays.

Unless you're sleeping with an utterly tasteless whore, using Tenacious D as mood music would be an embarrasing faux paux. John Legend, however, could help you convince the most chaste good girl to jump on you like a passionate ebony princess. If you can see a problem with that... I... I would just tell you to go kill yourself. Or something.

On a purely musical level, however, is where he shines even brighter. This is one of those rare albums that I never once think to myself, "Time to press 'skip track.'" Just let the record go, and you'll be happy you did.


Recommended Tracks:
Save Room
P.D.A (We Just Don't Care)
Another Again
Slow Dance

Late night Bullshido just hasn't been the same since you all came over here.

But seriously. Get this album if you like making love to beautiful women.

And get Embrya while you're at it as well. Anytime I had a girl in my dorm room alone, I'd put that album on. 9 times out of 10, it worked.

I shy away from any title that is close to embryo.

It will work for you, Dai.

Until then, remember that DC has great call girls.
