Perhaps the most surprising and accomplished R&B album of the decade
2004 | Label: LaFace Records

For years, Usher was an R&B vampire, siphoning the best from a previous generation: Michael Jackson's moves, Aaron Hall's purr, Tevin Campbell's smile. Then, he came back to life. After some fun, airy early singles, Usher broke up with his girl (TLC's Chili) and jumped in the booth. The results became perhaps the most surprising and accomplished R&B album of the decade. Confessions initially scored because of "Yeah!" the hyperkinetic crunk hybrid… read more »

A true RNB classic! No fillers!

ReinMaster

Catchy, bold & extremely well-produced, this album belongs in any RNB lover's music library! It is rare to find an album, especially of this length, where every song could be released as a hit single! No wonder it sold over 20 million copies!!!

The Realism

richmonddb

The realism of Usher's life on this album is why people are buying Confessions. Whether it was true or not, I thought this was one of his best albums and I enjoyed many of the songs on here. I have this album and since I brought it, I can honestly say I have played this album atleast 100 times. I feel that Usher is a remarkable singer and dancer and I love watching his performances.

They Say All Music Guide

Confessions’ most detracting factor is its length. At an hour in duration, it could be stripped of five songs and be far more powerful, especially since no one would have to do any wading to get to the meaty parts. On the other side of the coin, the smartest move Usher makes here is in allowing the Lil Jon-produced “Yeah!” to take its rightful place as the only club track; any attempt at doing something stylistically similar would’ve failed miserably in its presence. “Yeah!”‘s crunk-meets-R&B foundation, featuring an instantly addictive eight-note keyboard vamp and one of Usher’s most muscular turns, is so absorbing that Ludacris’ 1,500th guest verse floats by with little notice. The following “Throwback,” produced by Just Blaze, sounds like it was made for the sole purpose of trailing Alicia Keys’ “You Don’t Know My Name.” Like that hit, “Throwback”‘s sensitively treated soul sample provides a nostalgic tint that complements the wistful, regret-filled tone of the lyrics. A small batch of Jam & Lewis productions, including the effortlessly gliding “Truth Hurts,” continue to help raise Usher’s loverman stock. Another pair — the upbeat “Caught Up” and the aptly titled “Burn” — also rate as some of the vocalist’s best moments yet. He’s been doing this for ten years now. Numerous chart hits have spun off each of his albums. Needless to say, the time is right for the phrase “just another” to be banned from use when discussing him. [Six months after its initial release, Confessions was re-released with an expanded booklet and four additional tracks, including his duet with Alicia Keys, "My Boo."] – Andy Kellman
