10. CONFESSIONS (2004)
Production: Jermaine Dupri, Dre & Vidal, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis
Acclaim: Usher Raymond airs out his adulterous sins in a heady mix of ballads and bangers that Adam and Eve could get jiggy to. The touching (“Burn”), sexy moments (“That’s What It’s Made For") are perfect for horizontal sinning. No lie.
Peak moment: That orgasmic falsetto scream at the 3:56 mark of “Can U Handle It?”
