After hitting big with "Goodies" in 2004, Ciara hit a fallow stretch in which she seemed to be spending most of her time feuding with a hip-hop magazine (her claim: they airbrushed her clothes off) and gossip sites. Nothing says spin control like a hit duet with Justin Timberlake (the slinky "Love Sex Magic"); "Turntables," a curry-flavored but otherwise similarly catchy Chris Brown guest spot, serves the same purpose. But with Rihanna and Lady Gaga now pulling off superior R&B-techno fusions, Ciara sounds a bit incidental on her third disc's dance jams. She fares even worse whenever the tempo drops, thanks to meek vocals and a stale sensibility.
