We gave it a B

Two step, a caffeinated jolt of jittery break beats and silky R&B arrangements, is the new new thing on U.K. dance floors, and MJ Cole is its most compelling missionary. On his debut album, Sincere the 26-year-old ex-concert pianist conjures up Technicolor whorls of synthetic soul, but his attempts to make electronic music safe for the mainstream occasionally sound like callow crossover maneuvers.
