Joe Budden, No Love Lost
Label: E1, Mood Muzik Entertainment
Feels Like: Troubling emotions over less troubling production.
What Joe Budden does well, he sticks to it. That’s mainly been the success formula behind the Jersey MC’s rise, stumble, and consistency. For No Love Lost, however, he drifts around in several directions. Does it work well? Depends on who you’re targeting. But for those inside Budden’s loyal circle of followers, this album sounds right. It has the lyrical depth, the appealing top 40 attempts, and Joe’s openly obsessive ordeals about romance.
