Released on the eve of their 50th anniversary, Still Here is the Temptations' first album of original material since 2004's Legacy. The album is heavy on laid-back love songs that are easy to enjoy, if occasionally on the tepid side. Unsurprisingly, nothing is lacking in the vocal performances from Otis Williams and his partners, best heard on "Listen Up," a halting, politically charged number with an uplifting chorus. ~ Andy Kellman
