Carl Thomas' aptly named debut album, Emotional, delivers smooth, romantic R&B ballads like the title track, "My Valentine," "Come to Me," "Special Lady," and "Summer Rain." Though the set features competent singing, songwriting, and production (care of Puff Daddy), outside of the singles, it's not a particularly distinctive collection. Thomas' voice is impressive, but he needs better and more varied material to truly shine.
