IN STORES NOW

There may be "no more drama" since formerly troubled Mary J. Blige married manager Kendu Issacs in 2003 -- but her music has lost some of its edge. The R&B queen's ninth CD has more of the mature, soulful notes she's been singing in recent years (as on the single "I Am"), though old-school fans will still miss her anthems of pain. Also: Lose the gimmicky Auto-Tune vocal effects, MJB! (Matriarch/Geffen)
