How Good Is Miguel's 'Wildheart'?

June 29th, 2015 9:59am EDT
Review: Miguel Delivers A Homerun On 'Wildheart'
In recent times, it seems that R&B needs an IV – intravenous fluids. 2015 hasn’t been very respectable from a commercial standpoint and in some regards critically for a once fiery genre.

Miguel’s eclectic brand of R&B – contemporary, alternative, dashes of rock and pop – makes Wildheart and album no one should sleep on.

Wildheart commences with “A Beautiful Exit,” a sound record showcasing pop sensi...
