Review ·

There was a time when R&B music was about love, meaningful relationships, and the longing heart. If T-Pain's sophomore release is any indication, those days are long gone. In the place of heartfelt lyrics are songs about getting girls drunk, screwing in the backseat, and sixty-nining. T-Pain has a talent for writing catchy tunes, but it's wasted on songs that reinforce the worst stereotypes of black music and culture. Epiphany is a profound statement on the poor quality and embarrassing content found in mainstream urban music.

A great party album is a good thing, but this is nothing but misogynistic and disrespectful. The titles include "Tipsy," "Bartender," "Backseat Action," "Put It Down," "Yo Stomach," "Buy You a Drank," and "69" (the hook on "Tipsy": "I ain't trying to get you drunk/ I'm just trying to get you tipsy enough"). Even in "Suicide," which was intended to be a song with a message, T-Pain can't resist blaming the female. In the interlude, a female friend tells him she is HIV-positive. T-pain mocks and taunts before ending the discussion with "I love you." If this is where love has gone, the world is in pretty bad shape.
