    The man with the deep, velvety voice capable of making women melt at a thousand paces returned in 1999 with another slice of sensous R&B. White was the original Love Man, the one who taught the moves to every would-be mack daddy who's come down the pike since he appeared on the scene in the '70s. As befits one with so luxurious a voice, White intones over mostly slow-to-midtempo grooves, and the long tracks leave plenty of space for White's larger-than-life voice. The sultry mood does kick up a notch occasionally, though, as on the percolating, funky version of War's '70s hit "Low Rider." There are two versions of "The Longer We Make Love," which pair White with Chaka Khan and Lisa Stansfield, respectively. On both of these, White trades lines with his partner in a manner suggestive of his most evocative '70s hits, despite the very contemporary-sounding arrangement. White makes good on the album's title, proving himself the singer most likely to be heard in the boudoir.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (7/30/99, p.75) - "The voice is still deep, the subject matter is still sex, the songs are still long...and the orchestration is still layered, complex and hypnotic..." - Rating: B-
    Q (1/00, p.127) - 3 stars out of 5 - " rampant as a's nevertheless greatly entertaining, the big man even committing musical adultery with 2 versions of 'The Longer We Make Love', one duet with Chaka Khan, the other with Lisa Stansfield..."
