I accidently came across this album five months ago. My first impression after listening to tracks 1 - 4 was 'wow!!' I then brought it home and continued to listen to tracks 5 - 13 and thought 'hmmm'. Melvin has the voice, the production, but fails by making some very similiar sounding tracks. Don't get me wrong the production of the tracks is good especially, 'My good Thang', 'Why Your friends Hatin'', Scream, Shout (featuring Jamie Foxx), and 'Knees up Heads Down'. But, as usual the only up-tempo track on the album, 'Ballin'2000' is the weak link. However, despite the fact that some tracks sound similiar I would definately recommend this album for late night r'n'b music fans.

Melvin Riley, for those who don't recognize him or the name, is the former lead singer of the R&B group Ready For The World. His signature sound apparently was the sound of the band, since he did most of the writing. This was very apparent with his 1st solo release Ghetto Love. On his second release, Bedroom Stories, Mr. Riley makes some different moves. The synthesized sound he used for the majority of his career with RFTW, as well as his Ghetto Love release, is gone, except for "We Said" (a song about broken promises),which is still not quite as reminiscent of his past hits. Most of the songs on this compilation were written by others (a definite change for Riley). His ballads seem more relaxed, and are not as whiny as his RFTW past hits (remember "Deep Inside Your Love" and "Tonight"?).

"Scream, Shout," a duet with Jamie Foxx (before his famous callabos with Twista and Kanye West), is a nice touch. It's the closest thing Riley has to a title track, since he actually mentions those words in that song. Callers are directed to press 1 for Bedroom Stories with Jamie, or press 2 for Late Nite Dreams with Melvin (did he actually say "masturbate" in a song?). The hit "You Complete Me" borrows a loop from Trinna Brousard's "Inside My Love" from the Love Jones soundtrack. It is easily one of the best tracks on here (the video leaves a lot to be desired). One for the ladies is "Baby Get Yours," and it's about...u guessed it...the lady getting hers 1st (and, yes, he means orgasms). If you can stand the redundant chorus of "My Good Thang," then the song is not half bad. It is on here twice: once as a dance track, and again as a ballad (the dance track actually seems better). "When My Baby Cries" is an acoustic set that is similiar to RFTW's "Here I Am" (on Long Time Coming).

This was an awsome album compared to most that came out at the time. Too bad there wasn't much promotion, radio play or videos. Check this CD out, you wont be disappointed. This guy was the lead singer of one of the best groups to come out in the 80's READY FOR THE WORLD

Love the smooth, soulful old school soung of this music. This takes me back to the day when you could understand the clear sound and words of the songs. Plus, there is actually a story being told, not just humble-jumble words that rhyme.

Melvin riley picks up were he left off from his hit 80s group ready for the world.He has a very nice voice that is not deep. The cd came out in 2000 and got little air play. I think because he released the wrong videos and singles such as "you complete me" which I saw on blastro.com and ballin 200o was a single.Thats why it gets 7 stars. Besides those 2 songs the rest are really good.Jamie foxx is on this cd, he should of released that song. The songs sound like a updated ready for the world bump and grind type joints. He has a lot of smooth songs. My favorite is dont

forget bout us- Its a beautiful songs. They used the strings and other instruments nicely. IT complements of voice.

get this if you like bump and grind mucsic such as r kelly, and of couse if your a ready for the world fan.
