Today's album: The-Dream bet on kåtheten and destroy all the embarrassment

the Artist, songwriter and producer Terius ”The-Dream” Nash has a degree of privacy that is reminiscent of Ingmar Bergman. During the last fifteen years he has gone through two divorces, married three times and has eight children with four women. At the same time, he has worked hard and created songs like Rihanna's ”Umbrella” and Beyoncés ”Single ladies”. How he in addition has had a own solo career is impressive, but also says something about how restless The-Dream is.

his solo career has been just as convoluted as privacy. But three days before christmas, released The-Dream's sixth album, ”Ménage à trois: Sextape vol 1, 2, 3”. As the title suggests, it is released (a total of forty songs!) and the concept is six of the snuskigare the battle.

to make up for lost time – his fans have the last few years frustrerats of the constant delays and compromises. The album ”Love affair” was never released, and of the ”Crown jewel” was released only one ep with a handful of the disc's songs. The-Dream has not been one of the r&b scene's prominent artists since 2010, the century's dawn. Now it is dusk and he rushes in to stake everything on one card: the boundless kåtheten.

Similar to The Magnetic Fields in a different released, the masterpiece ”69 love songs”, The-Dream explore its subject from as many different angles as possible. With over two and a half hour of music, however, the party is quite exhausting. That The-Dream has chosen not to hire a single guest and take care of the production himself along with the old man his armourbearer Los da Mystro on almost all the songs makes the music homogeneous, but also a bit monotonous.

”Sextapes” the most interesting thing that The-Dream has released since skilsmässoalbumet ”1977”. He chooses namely, to go as far as possible from trying to make hit songs, instead he focuses on being open-minded, not to say self-revealing.

The dark and distanslösa libido as previously shown in single songs like ”Panties to the side” and ”Fuck my brains out” are now allowed free reign, all embarrassment is slaughtered. And the overwhelming amount of similar tracks makes the disc seem to be more designed as a playlist than a traditional album, more suited for modern music consumption, in other words.

But the purely artistic features The-Dream not made a new record for contemporary popklimat, he has done one for the bedroom in their own head. This is how personal and ickeängsliga album project is the r&b-the music is certainly not pampered with.
