Ray J might not try so hard to be hard if it weren't for two things. There's the instant association with his sister Brandy and, more pertinently, the modern R&B prerequisite (with rare exception) that necessitates the macho-and-musclebound image. His third album in eight years, Raydiation, isn't any less derivative than Everything You Want and This Ain't a Game. He rarely deviates from copping his moves off R. Kelly -- who writes and produces "Quit Actin'" -- and Usher. The highlights are passable. Lead single "One Wish," one of several tracks written and produced by Rodney Jerkins, managed to put a sizable ding on the charts. If Ray J plans on maintaining his every-four-years release schedule, he might as well spend less time soaking up his influences and more time developing some individuality.

I have to give Ray J his props.This cd was "GREAT" I can play it from 1-15 and that rare. So I would have to recommend this cd to everbody.. Babys will be made to a few of these tracks. Keep up the good work Ray J.

Ray J's CD will not get the props of other mainstream artists because music is so cookie-cutter buyers are apprehesive to take chances...but don't pass on this CD. "Raydiation" just feels good. It is tastefully sexy, the up-tempo cuts are good and Ray J's voice is great. So if you are tried of the some old dull/dark music...get some "Raydiation" in your life it will have you shining.

Ray J's new CD is his best CD yet. The music sounds more brutally honest then his previous releases. Ray J's voice sounds better and he kills song #4,6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15. Overall, it should put him in his own category next to Brandy.

I thought Ray J wasn't that good, until I heard track 7 "Melody." This cd is awsome
