CeeLo Green—Heart Blanche

CeeLo Green—Heart Blanche (Atlantic Records, 2015)

Heart Blanche seems to be CeeLo Green’s version of an open house. He invites the listener into his world, one filled with a modern gospel-like vibe and pumping tunes, featuring a mix of melancholy and upbeat lyrics. The record strikes a nice balance between storytelling and songs to boogie to, with “Better Late Than Never” being a standout. In an effort to redeem himself, CeeLo reminds his audience that we all make mistakes and all have our share of embarrassing stories. Even with heartfelt lyrics and a personal touch however, Heart Blanche struggles to offer anything significant enough to draw listeners back for more.
