JR Writer - Writers Block Vol. 4 (Review)

I want to hear what you guys have to say about new releases and what you are listening to. I am going to start putting up quick record/track reviews on Still-Listen as a means to better make everyone more aware of what is coming out and what you should get your hands on. Email or hit up Still-Listen on Myspace and I will feature some reader comments/reviews on a certain record/song when I can work it in.

JR Writer just released the 4th volume in the 'Writer's Block' series, and it is being pretty slept on. Should it be? JR sold something around 50K of his last album.

I'm one of those JR listeners who is still curious why "Mezmorized" off 'Writer's Block 2' didn't appear on his major label debut. Number 4 in the series has it's moments, of course- some good, some bad and some just OK. If JR would have combined the hot tracks off volume 4 with the hot tracks off 'History in the Making' he would have had a really solid debut album. "Get Em" (produced by JR's brother) is a great song, and would have sounded really good after a track like "Zoolander" or "Grill Em".
