Released four months prior to Mr. Houston, "I Love Her" was indicative of the sound presented throughout Marques Houston's fourth solo album. Slathered in fluttering Auto-Tune treatments and featuring a vocal delivery that would have sounded distant even without the processing, it's an approach that is occasionally -- not often -- broken up by some untouched falsetto. The disc is not the most distinctive set of the former B2K member's career, highlighted by the breezy "Express Lane" (which could have only been written in the wake of Jamie Foxx's "Blame It") and "Stranger," where Houston is at his unassuming best.
