“Stronger” Review


Tank is back with is sixth Album release entitled “Stronger” on Atlantic Records. Fresh off his run with TGT, I guess Mr. Babbs said it was time to put out a solo album between the group’s project and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. Through much of Stronger, Tank relates how much he needs his woman, and how much she means to him, over soft and glistening slow-jam productions from the likes of Young Fyre, James “J-Doe” Smith and Eric “Bluetooth” Griggs, and Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis and Shama “Sak Pase” Joseph. The uptempo songs are highlighted by the opening “You’re My Star,” with Kelly Rowland present in the background, while “Dance with Me” and “I Gotta Have It” — the latter the album’s lone song about a short-term fling — are more throwback in nature, offering light disco-funk. The relatively relaxed “Missing You,” a more explicitly referential track, is a ’70s Marvin Gaye homage built on a rolling, horn-accented groove with a subtle reference to “Distant Lover.” This is one of Tank’s best albums yet, so go show your support and grab yourself a Copy.
