Intermission I & II
Label: Atlantic Records
Trey Songz is an early adopter of R&B mixtapes, so this free pair of Intermission EPs shouldn't be a surprise to longtime fans. These sessions are less polished than his official albums, with appealing tracks barely held together by his seductively emotive voice. While there's not much actual songcraft here, Trey lands a few good shots like "Boss," "Do It Now," "Company" and "Flick." Most interesting is when he pauses his sex talk for confessional asides -- "So much stress in my life that I'm holding inside," he sings on "Talk About It" -- that reveal his life as an R&B superstar.
