Amara’s Take: I have say this is a nice album, as it’s not too different from what I would expect from Ne-Yo. However, I do think there are a few tracks that could have been left off during the final cut. It’s like classic Ne-Yo … but also not.
DeWayne’s Take: It’s a weird time right now for artists like Ne-Yo. No one is doubting his talent, but his traditional R&B roots are forcing him to struggle with an issue that every artist within his genre has to face once they reach the age of 30 (everyone but Beyonce it seems.) Instead of trying to break new musical ground, what we find on Good Man is Ne-Yo’s attempt to fit in with the young boys. Sometimes it works, and other times it just comes across like that old dude trying to fit in.
Official Rolling Out Grade: B-
