Tank follows a familiar recipe with his sophomore set, One Man. His debut, Force of Nature, won the singer/songwriter the attention of critics and fans alike. Following in the footsteps of his previous smash hit, "Maybe I Deserve," the title track (which is the set's lead single) could easily serve as an anthem for any man who tried his best to please the woman he loves. One Man also proves that Tank can kick up the tempo. Tracks like the Jazze Pha-produced "I Wanna Be That" and "Supa Sexy," which lifts portions of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," are radio-ready tracks tailor-made for Tank. Despite his dabbling in the clubs, it's in the bedroom where his music proves most effective. Evoking the spirit of Gaye again, "My Place" finds Tank testing out his falsetto with surprising results. He may soon find himself as the "one man" who can climb to the top of the female-dominated R&B hill.—RH
