    Brian McKnight's smooth vocals, melodic keyboard-based tunes and honest lyrics help define a style of R&B that has been scarce in the '90s. On his third set, McKnight continues to touch the heart with his soulful grooves and heartfelt ballads. Although a guest appearance from Mase on "You Should Be Mine (Don't Waste Your Time)" makes for a great pop hit, McKnight's true musical talent and vocal ability replace R&B's usual connection with hip-hop on ANYTIME. Songs like "Could" and "Anytime" use the slow love song formula while "Everytime We Say Goodbye" and "You Got The Bomb" remind listeners what smooth up-tempo R&B should sound like.

  • Critic Reviews
    The Source (11/97, p.174) - "...Brian McKnight refuses to forsake his talent and submit to the superficial rah-rah that plagues his genre....He still maintains his lover-boy steez...proving that the Luther Vandross of our time can also make us dance."
