All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Three albums in and Trey Songz still sounds like he was raised in a bizzaro land where all music was based on the teachings of R. Kelly. From his cool delivery to his unashamed lyrics -- first line on the album: "This one here's a panty dropper" -- he's a time-warp version of Kelly, one just entering his mid-twenties with a more excusable, though just as excessive, horniness. To call it anything less, like "lust," wouldn't be fair to the lines about pillow-biting on "Neighbors Know My Name" -- because "she's a screamer" -- or all the other moments that get a bit too graphic for an album that doesn't carry a Parental Advisory sticker especially dangerous since Songz still...

Three albums in and Trey Songz still sounds like he was raised in a bizzaro land where all music was based on the teachings of R. Kelly. From his cool delivery to his unashamed lyrics -- first line on the album: "This one here's a panty dropper" -- he's a time-warp version of Kelly, one just entering his mid-twenties with a more excusable, though just as excessive, horniness. To call it anything less, like "lust," wouldn't be fair to the lines about pillow-biting on "Neighbors Know My Name" -- because "she's a screamer" -- or all the other moments that get a bit too graphic for an album that doesn't carry a Parental Advisory sticker especially dangerous since Songz still has teen appeal at his age. An odd mashing of his mentor's styles result in amusing numbers like "Jupiter Love" which packages its "do you right" message in an arrangement that's "I Believe I Can Fly" big, as if Disney commissioned a softcore porno soundtrack. Even at a whopping 17 like-minded tracks, all-night lovers wouldn't be caught dead complaining about how overly long it all is, and if you can't get down with an album featuring the key track "I Invented Sex," then you just don't understand the difference between ridiculous and delicious. Trey Songz might, or he might not, it's hard to tell, but either way, this is as entertaining and frivolous as a one-night stand should be. If those played-out R. Kelly albums aren't doing the trick anymore, Ready is just what it says it is.

    At his best

    This is Trey songz at his best. This is his 3rd album and it is good from beginning to end. If you have never listen to one of his albums and this is your first time experiencing him as an artist, this is a good place to start.

    Trey Proves That He Is Indeed Ready for the Music Game

    A True Classic! One of the rare CDs that you can play from beginning to end and be delighted with every single track. He really comes into his own in this CD, and leaves the young R. Kelly comparisons to the old CDs. He stretches his abilities and tries for sounds unlike anyother he's tried before with tracks like "Black Roses" and "Jupiter Love". With such a classic enclave of music to choose from, my favorite would have to be "One Love", with "Your Side of the Bed" and "Neighbors Know My Name". My only regret is that I wish he had made his interludes into full songs! Great effort Trey; reminds me why I fell in love with your music back when I first heard "just Gotta Make It" so long ago.

    Get to know & understand the mind of Trey Songz in the album Ready.Trey Songz is "Ready" to display his growth, maturity, experience, talent and love through his music. This album is very versatile and exotic. I own Trey Songz albums: I Gotta Make It, Trey Day and now Ready. It only gets better!! Keep making great music Trey Songz and I wish you continued success.
