Mario Winans's Hurt No More could've offered nothing more than formulaic make-out music. Instead, the accomplished producer -- who's worked with R. Kelly and is one of the younger members of the gospel royalty Winans family -- flips contemporary R&B's libidinous lover-man conventions, moaning about the fragility of his broken heart. On the hit single "I Don't Wanna Know" -- buoyed by a haunting Enya sample and a verse by label boss P. Diddy -- Winans milks the jilted lover posture as he pleads: "If you're playing me / Keep it on the low / 'Cause my heart can't take it anymore." That sentiment is the linchpin to an entire album devoted largely to the forlorn feelings of a man scorned. Though his vocals rarely go beyond a breathy, near-falsetto strain, he's still able to make the sensitive-guy shtick stick. From the resentful "You Knew," featuring the equally high-pitched, nasal voice of 112's Slim, to the lovelorn "What's Wrong with Me," Winans crafts great break-up anthems from a metrosexual perspective. Even so, he's no wimp, as he proves on such bouncy, bittersweet tracks as "Pretty Girl Bullsh*t," featuring a vicious rhyme by rap vixen Foxy Brown. Heartache has rarely sounded this funky.
