I know I’ve stated it many times before, but it was a REALLY good year for r&b. In most years, Raheem DeVaughn’s “The Love & War MasterPeace” would be an easy selection for album of the year. In fact, I would have no problem naming four albums of the year, but I had to rank them. This double disc album was Raheem’s finest effort to date and was pretty much strong from start to finish. Sometimes double disc albums are associated with a lot of filler, but that wasn’t the case here. In my opinion, now with a fourth album under his belt, this solidifies Raheem at the fore front of r&b and will be a force to be reckoned with in 2011 with the new album “A Place Called LoveLand.”
