Hurt No More [Clean Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Outside of some significant background details, nothing about Hurt No More is radically exceptional. It is, however, full of small surprises. Not only is it a Winans' record with a parental advisory sticker; it's also a Bad Boy release with production and instrumental duties handled by one person. That person is Mario Winans, whose return as a solo artist was announced by a Top Five single that is literally haunted by the spirit of Enya circa 1987. Primarily a producer and multi-instrumentalist, with credits up the ying-yang for big-name gospel and secular artists alike, Winans' rebirth as a solo artist -- after a false start with Motown in 1997 -- is as rich as humbled, ...

Not only is it a Winans' record with a parental advisory sticker; it's also a Bad Boy release with production and instrumental duties handled by one person. That person is Mario Winans, whose return as a solo artist was announced by a Top Five single that is literally haunted by the spirit of Enya circa 1987. Primarily a producer and multi-instrumentalist, with credits up the ying-yang for big-name gospel and secular artists alike, Winans' rebirth as a solo artist -- after a false start with Motown in 1997 -- is as rich as humbled, sincerely sensitive, male R&B gets in 2004. Lead single "I Don't Wanna Know" trumps Ruben Studdard's "Sorry 2004" as the most touching R&B single by a broken-spirited male for 2004, made by a subdued drum pattern, Enya's ambient presence, a sprinkle of piano, and Winans' hushed, pained vocal -- which begs his woman to keep her infidelities low-key. Winans has experience making a wide range of music for others, but he excels most at creating slow, sophisticated grooves for himself. Songs of this kind make up most of this album, and that aspect has a lot to do with why this record is successful. Winans doesn't wear the few harder-edged numbers so well -- "Pretty Girl Bullsh*t," featuring an ill-matched verse from Foxy Brown, is particularly out-of-character and disrupts the lush, sensual flow of the record. A couple minor blunders like that hardly prevent Hurt No More from being one of the finest R&B albums of the year. [A clean version of the album was also made available.]

    Mario, Keep Your Eyes On Christ

    Unfortunately I personally think Mario Winans got frusterated and wanted more publicity. But Mario you got a gift of music and it does not need to be tainted by others' control and lower standards. The songs overall are romantic,but the cussing was not neccesary and was probably Sean Combs input. C'mon Mario Keep YOur eyes on Christ. He will make a way for you to be blessed without compromise if you just persevere.

    too much sampled music :(

    I have really enjoyed Mario Winans writting skills on past projects. I even have his first album, But I was a little disappointed that he allowed P.Diddy and The hitmen to help out with most of the writting and production. On his past album which was done on Motown, Mario wrote and produce all of his songs and he didn't sample other people's music. It seems to me that this time around he didn't have much creative control over his own project. He isn't even mentioned as a Producer.
