Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Originally released in 2001, first album of new material from Superb R&B trio in eight years.

Amazon.com

"We sellin' like Bon Jovi," Ronnie DeVoe drawls on BBD's "Scandalous." This is typical pop hype, but Bell Biv DeVoe should be happy their lyrics weren't screened by fact checkers. BBD (Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and DeVoe) hasn't clocked platinum units since their 1990 debut, Poison. Back then the trio, an offshoot of '80s superstar boy group New Edition, laced smooth harmonies to rugged beats and misogynist lyrics, making their first one of the best (and most widely imitated) R&B records of the era. After the moderately successful '93 follow-up, Hootie Mack, Bell Biv DeVoe are back, trying to appeal to an audience that's now saturated with thugged-out Romeos and has no idea how groundbreaking the trio was. Sadly, BBD does their legacy little good with this lackluster effort. Now in their 30s, Bell, Biv, and DeVoe still think the lady is a tramp, but while they once spit out their sex-you-ups with a bad-boy bite, new cuts like the thumping "Dance B----" just sound bitter. The vibe is better when the trio lets the love flow, as on the silky "I Ain't Going Nowhere," which proves BBD can still make the females swoon. --Amy Linden

Bell Biv DeVoe are three members of the 80s Pop/R&B supergroup New Edition. New Edition ruled the pop and R&B charts between 1983 and 1989. First Bobby Brown left, and enjoyed his heyday between 1986 and 1993. Next came Bell Biv DeVoe, the second most successful N.E. spin-off, and in 1990 they became the first act to win "Best New Artist" at the televised Billboard Music Awards. Later in '90, Johnny Gill dropped his classic release on Motown, and in 1991 lead-singer Ralph Tresvant dropped his debut album as well. To make a long story short, these guys are legends (all six members of New Edition) and this reviewer has looked up to them for a long time now.
So how is the music on this CD? Unfortunately the word "mediocre" is the best way to describe it. I will however, highlight three songs that make this album worth trying out. Those songs are "In My Crib", "Da Hot...", and "Breezy":
"In My Crib" is by far the tightest song on the album; I play it over and over again, and think this song could be BBD's first major hit in a long time. "IMC" sounds like something New Edition could pull off actually, since it features vocals by Mr. Sensitivity himself, the one and only Mr. Ralph Tresvant. Produced by Brandon and Brian Casey from Jagged Edge (good work, fellas - seriously!!!), the song has the same island groove that Bad Boy rapper Shyne's "Bonnie & Clyde" had -- remember that? It even features a subtle element from New Edition's 1988 ballad "I'm Comin Home" in the middle of the song before Ron's rap - extremely nice touch! "IMC" is the jaaaammmmm!
Good song #2 is the first single, "Da Hot...". Produced by Da Rockwilder, the song is funky and sounds up-to-date. Good song #3 is "Breezy", produced by Heavy D and Tony Dofat.

MAN!!! BBD has done it again! Every song on this album is a "head-knocker". You can honestly choose any track on this album and it'll be straight "bumpin" (so don't hurt your neck). Although it doesn't really seem that it's getting much air play on the airwaves, and that's a crime. The cuts on this album are just as good and really better than anything out right now. I believe this to be their strongest album to date. Although I wouldn't neccessarliy say that it's better than the 1st one, I would say that it's more well-rounded. A MUST BUY for ANY hip-hop and r&b listener!

Athough it is not as good as their previous albums, it is like 3 steps above the songs from B2K. This album is more on the hardcore rap side than the R&B side. This cd has a decent set of tracks and vocals are good. Well, it is better this cd be explicit than "boy band" corny. This is suggested to from of hip-hop/R&B rap & long time fans. I also like that they don't overuse their sexiness like some other r&b groups.

This record's a dud, and it pains me to say this because, as a Bostonian, I have nothing but love for the New Edition and its members. But you'd have to ask why BBD bother to make a comeback record with this swill. Women don't get a fair shake in these songs as they're all treated like inflatable dolls. As much as I wanna give these fellow local bruhs credit, I have to say that this record embarasses me.

The new album from Bell Biv DeVoe is most satifying . As much as some people may hate , this is a gerat cd that will satisfy people that love hip-hop/ r&b . It has hip-hop that is not too overbearing in hardcore material and only 1 really smooth r&b song towards the end . The things they do best are making highly cohisive efforts that become better with each successive effort and perfectly conforming the musical and fashion style of the time without sounding or looking phony . This effort is best suited to those who like hip-hop/r&b and hardcore rap which the album consists of . This album has gained new fans of the group like myself so go and get this and it true fan the can appreciate their work . I don't only love their music ,I love their sex appeal as well . So,in closing , don't hate ,congratioulate these sexy & talented men who are putting it down for people with staying power in the music industry . They will be with us for many years to come. SIGNED MUSIC FAN.

This album is definitely Hot! Don't let the lack of airplay fool you, DJs will catch on eventually. The 1st released single "Da Hot Sh** (Aight)" is tight. The track is produced by Rockwilder and features rappers Shaheed and Jak Frawst plus singer Shamari (from the group Blaque) to add some flavor. BBD stays true to their trademark mix of Hip-Hop & R&B. "Breezy" is a song produced by Heavy D that will bring people out on the dance floor with it's catchy piano tune in the background. The biggest treat on the album is "In My Crib" which is produced by the Casey bros. from Jagged Edge, and features fellow New Edition member Ralph Tresvant.
You can definitely hear that BBD has made the transition to keep up with the current sounds. There is more emphasis on Hip-Hop than previous albums, which is fine - the only possible fault may be some of the language which old BBD fans are not used to hearing. But if that's the case, then buy the edited version. This album is perfect for anyone who likes a combination of R&B + Hip-Hop, and is not just limited to BBD fans.
