Floetry—the London duo of singer Marsha Ambrosius and spoken-word artist Natalie Stewart—seems determined to play their album titles off of their name (which rhymes with "poetry"). They dubbed their gold 2002 debut Floetic and their 2003 concert disc Floacism 'Live.' But their nomenclature and neo-soul stylings on the awkwardly named Flo'Ology—which sounds like something you'd study in physics class—lack the freshness they once had. Although they smoothly blend R&B, jazz and hip-hop on cuts like "SupaStar," there's a little too much flow between their sensual slow jams and midtempo grooves: Nothing much really stands out.
