Review

Exile Love is Exile’s 6th album & it was released on December 12, 2007. With an album title like that I figured this would be full of ballads but after listening to it that assumption was wrong. In fact there are a lot more up or mid tempo tracks. The overall sound doesn’t stray from the Exile R&B formula that much. So I think if you’ve heard a couple of Exile tracks before you’re not in for that much of a surprise.

Despite that, the material on this album is still some solid stuff with I Believe, Hibiki, SUMMER TIME LOVE & Love standing out for me. I believe SUMMMER TIME LOVE is the strongest track on the album. It has similar qualities to Choo Choo TRAIN I think. Those being the infectiousness of the song & overall sound. The only blatant weakness on this disc is 24karats. The beat is tight, but the song itself sounds more like a bloated b-side to me.

Still, the album is fairly consistent & is worth picking up if you want some quality R&B.
