Eric Benet

When: Thu., Feb. 9, 8 p.m. 2012

Talk about bringing a knife to a gun fight: Eric Benet represents the paring variety. He sings nicely with a tender lover-man falsetto, but he lacks the vocal presence of Maxwell or even Dave Hollister. As such, Benet offers an even lighter adult contemporary brand of R&B than that of the already watered-down '90s neo-soul ilk. His willowy vocals are besotted with affectation like he's pushing to make the finals of American Idol. Benet's handsome flash may be enough for some, but as musical meat goes, he's much more wing than breast. —Chris Parker
