St. Louis native CURTIS has plenty of heart and soul, but his vision currently outshines his execution. The unabashed love tribute “Love Me All Day” packs plenty of utopian devotion, but ends up spinning its wheels on lover’s lane as the song’s shortcomings (singer’s lack of enunciation at the mic, lyrics that vary from solid to stilted) add up. “Dreams” is undermined when the chorus vocal, instead of rising dramatically in key, dips down into a lower register, sacrificing energy and clarity. The dancey “All Night (With You)” features a guest rapper who proves to be more interesting than CURTIS himself. Moments of promise suggest that CURTIS would do well to partner with an experienced collaborator.
