Libra Scale

B+

This is ostensibly a concept album about a garbageman who develops superpowers right before falling in love (no joke), which explains the slow jam about telekinetic sex. For the most part, it?s easiest to enjoy Ne-Yo?s fourth set of well-built love songs on their own merits. On Libra Scale, he remains a charming falsetto vocalist with strong echoes of Michael Jackson, and his knack for romantic lyrics and sweet melodies is more than enough to entertain without a far-fetched story arc.
