4.0 out of 5 stars Off To A Good Start
Back in 1997, multi-platinum albums for artists weren't enough; they had to have their own record labels so THOSE artists could go multi-platinum as well. Thus explains Mariah Carey's short-lived Crave Records, which gave birth to a soulful quartet called Allure.
Most of the songs on the album aren't just good-they're DOPE. "The Story" is just that-a smooth track...

3.0 out of 5 stars Allure Shines On Debut
Allure bursted into the R&B scene in early '97, highly touted as the next hot girl group on the come up. As the first act signed to Mariah Carey's short-lived Crave imprint under the Trackmasters, there was definitely much hype surrounding the group. The introduction says it best (there are four major elements to Allure/Linnie, Lalisha, Akissa and Alia/these ladies...

5.0 out of 5 stars VOICES FROM HEAVEN, November 4, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
There is a distinct Mariah Carey sound to this album.These girls have outdone themselves on this album debut. There singing abilities bring out the lyrics and lift the album. This is a must for R&B lovers!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars bad song choices, December 6, 2003
By 
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
The album lacks good songs. It is plain boring. The Voices are nice but that's all there is. And don't forget that"All cried out" is originally a Lisa Lisa & cold jam song - so it's just a cover song.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Total Washout!, May 15, 2006
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
I don't know who thought that Allure's version of "All Cried Out" is the best remake that there is. Don't get me wrong tho-

Allure do have some beautiful voices that do some slamming harmony- but them remaking "All Cried Out" is a washout! And using 112 did not help matters anymore than the rappers used on the album. A good album, but not one of their best. An extreme

lackluster affair. The songs I like are Head over Heels, No Question and One More Chance. The rest of the album needs to recycled for the protection of the earth. These girls have gorgeous voices and voices like angels should not be given Gorgon songs. A total washout! My grade is:F!

1.0 out of 5 stars This album is pure trash! Worst CD of 20th Century!, January 10, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
This album is so bad! Please don't waste your money on this album! The person who gave this album 5 stars must be deaf or have bad taste. This album is wack! horrible! Please buy better albums like Janet Jackson's "The Velvet Rope".

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge an album by it's cover, March 27, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
They may look all beautiful and angelic on the cover, but when you listen to the album you'll hear ugly, demonic voices. In other words, don't buy this album.

1.0 out of 5 stars The cluck of the Chickenheads, March 8, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
This CD is extremely wack, these chickenheads can't sing. Don't waste your money buying this CD. The only song I like is "All Cried Out" but if that's the only song you like buy the single don;t buy the album. This album is so typical and watered-down. END

1.0 out of 5 stars I took it back.., February 22, 2000
By 
Mecca Egypt (Gardena, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Allure (Audio CD)
I had the album and it was horrible. I took it back and got a refund. I looked in the used section a month later and saw about 10 copies of this album there (some were still unopened!). That should tell you how horrible this album is. Don't make the same mistake that I did. I didn't even buy the album (I got it as a present). If you like "All Cried Out," buy the single or request it on a radio station, don't waste your cash on this trash.
