Dru Hill is a new-jack soul quartet that follows mentor Keith Sweat's lead on its debut album. Paeans to Herculean late-night exploits and calls of soul-cleaning devotion are interspersed over old-fashioned soul licks, delivered with modern R&B technology. At times, as on "Tell Me," the low and high roads to a heart co-mingle in a fashion that would make Prince envious. But Dru Hill seldom reaches the Minneapolitan's funky musical raunch. Instead, Sisqo, Woody, Nokio and Jazz choose to be smooth like butter: all rich harmonies, laid-back finger snaps and synthesized harps.
Muzik (2/97, p.114) - 8 out of 10 - "With swingbeat getting slender and slower, and the beats getting thinner and lower, one wonders whether you should get down on the dancefloor or get between the sheets and tell somebody you need some love & affection....pure bonking music."
Vibe (2/97, p.105) - "...Dru Hill promise devotion, emotion, the world, and then some for the love of the ladies....[T]his is strictly R&B..."
