Neo-soul in a world gone pop, Philadelphia's Musiq Soulchild steps up the tempo and hooks a bit on his new, sixth album, MusiqInTheMagiq, but not too ostentatiously. His feel for lush harmony, complex chording, and memorably conversational woo-pitching has grown so strong that angling for a comeback only seems to have focused him. "Yes" might be his finest song yet: a romantic promise from one grown partner to another that some questions will always have the same answer.
