Just Go

Mikael Wood
A quick look at the writing and production credits for Lionel Richie's latest reveals his obvious desire to connect with an audience too young to remember mid-'80s hits like "Dancing on the Ceiling" and "Hello." Akon, Ne-Yo, Stargate, "Tricky" Stewart and the-Dream all contribute to an album with an up-to-the-minute digital sheen. Yet thanks to Richie's confidently grown-up vocals and his consistently mature subject matter—here's a guy whose romantic timeline stretches past tonight to "Forever and a Day," as one track puts it—"Just Go" never sounds calculated or desperate. In fact, highlights like "I'm in Love" and "I'm Not Okay" showcase a cultivated cool—perhaps a first for this longtime champion of tenderness and devotion.
