Mario Winans should have called this record Mario Whinin'. Hurt No More is the grim portrait of a smooth but unsuccessful lover who gets cheated on ad nauseam. On the first single, Winans suspects that his girl is cheating, but he loves her so much that he doesn't want to know the truth. Wimpy as it is, Winans's severe pathos is fairly unique amidst the thuggery of so much pop R&B. But the clichés keep coming. There's a lot of "Can he love/touch/please you like I do?" To his credit, Winans, a solid long-time producer for Bad Boy Records, has created a record with the rap-savvy vintage of classic 112 and Total albums of the 90s.
