On his first album for Warner Bros., Brian McKnight emphasizes the same alpha male nuances that peppered his last release, 2005's Gemini. While McKnight hasn't quite reemerged as an R. Kelly clone, these songs boast a distinctive swagger and attitude that's most notable on his collaborations with hit-making songwriter and production team Tim & Bob, who help give the disc a needed contemporary edge. Amid the Middle Eastern-flavored percussion and strings on the opening cut, "Used to Be My Girl," McKnight talks smack to his ex's current beau. Elsewhere, the trio deliver "Unhappy Without You," a scorched-earth response to a broken relationship, presented over a bed of thumping beats and darting strings. McKnight's lover man image is further bolstered by the between-the-sheets come-ons sprinkled over the synth washes and layered harmonies that dot the Marvin Gaye-reminiscent "Comfortable," though he easily slips back into a sentimental mood on the heart-on-sleeve slow jam "I Do." Even so, McKnight -- who wrote most of the songs on Ten -- flaunts his skills on the patriotic "Red White and Blue," dedicated to the troops overseas and sung with country act Rascal Flatts. McKnight proves with Ten that he's only getting better with time.
