    Boyz II Men are the granddaddies of R&B-inflected, pop-friendly, male harmony groups. The countless boy bands that sprang up in their wake all owe a huge debt to the Boyz. Here, they return to reclaim the world they helped to make from the hands of their younger disciples.
    While there are a few concessions to the times (for instance, the Latin tinge to the "What's the Deal" and the opener "Beautiful Women"), the group sticks mostly to their well-established strengths; soulful, gently funky tunes powered by sweet harmonies and propelled by sensual, gently undulating rhythms. This is makeout music first and foremost. The in-your-face hooks and production of other groups are not for these guys; they'd rather usher you gently into the bedroom and whisper sweet nothings over a quietly insistent backbeat.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (9/15/00, p.78) - "...Mature, danceable, even occasionally sexy tracks that...offer a respite from their past schtick..." - Rating: B
    Q (12/00, p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...As good as traditional but modern soul gets..."
    Muzik (11/00, p.119) - 3 out of 5 - "...When they actually sound like B2M on cuts like 'What The Deal' and the single 'Pass You By' it's convincing..."
