Legacy is the right title for this album. Boyz II Men were the original, modern-day boy band, predating both 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys. Heavily influenced by doo-wop groups such as the Platters and the Dells and developed by ex-New Edition member Michael Bivins, Boyz II Men quickly rose to heavyweight status after the foursome's 1991 debut, Cooleyhighharmony, their success based on romantic ballads and strong vocals. However, they lacked the charisma and looks to really make an impact on the world, and they're perhaps the only group that could be described as "quietly" selling 35 million records. This collection of their best moments concentrates on their strengths as crooning Cupids, exemplified by their massive hit and classic ballad "End of the Road" (taken from the Boomerang soundtrack). "Hey Lover," featuring LL Cool J, is as energetic as the album gets. Legacy is unabashedly assembled for lovers of slow, romantic bedroom soul. --Jake Barnes

You can make a case that any artists greatest hits collection would be their greatest album, and Legacy is no different. The "Boyz" arent as popular as they were in the mid 1990's because they kept true to their work and didnt evolve with what music is popular today. However, its great to sit back and listen to these songs to remember why Boyz II Men has some (including the biggest) hits of all time.
MotownPhilly----This song is a classic, their first single release, by todays standards its kinda poppy and not very complicated musically by the standards of the rest of their work, but its rare to get such great voice harmonies on a fast song.
It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday----This is my all-time favorite Boyz II Men song, their recore company said an a capella song would never get radio play, but this song became their first smash hit.
End Of The Road--This is the song that established Boyz II Men as one of the greatest artists of all time, it went to being the longest running song at #1 of all time, a total of 13 straight weeks, and while it no longer holds the top spot, it is definitely one of their best songs.
In The Still Of The Night--The "Boyz" recorded this song for "The Jacksons, An American Dream" movie and proved that It's So Hard... was not a fluke, and that a capella songs could be real hits in the 1990's.
Hey Lover--Nate, Mike, Shawn & Wan only sing backup and the chorus on this song with LL Cool J, but it did make them crossover favorites with rap fans.

"Motownphilly" was the sound that introduced us to Boyz, other than their founder, Mike Bivins (of New Edition and BBD fame.) Their tight harmonies and unique sound made them THE ultimate quartet of the 90s (excluding Jodeci.) "It's So Hard..." was another song that showcased their harmonies best. This song was best used at funerals and the like. "End of the Road" was another song best known from the Boomerang soundtrack and also spent an amazing 13+ weeks at the top of the charts. "In Still Of the Night.." a nice cover of a classic. "Hey Lover" w/ LL Cool J was a hit for both-it appeared on Cool J's 1996 album "Mr Smith." "I'll Make Love..." was another big hit for the Boyz off their "II" album, as so was "On Bended Knee." "Water Runs Dry" was another single with a classical feel to it, graciously tuned by the sounds of the violin. "One Sweet Day" was a hit for them as well as Mariah, as it appears on her "#1's" album as well as here. "4 Seasons of Loneliness" appeared on their "Evolution" album, as did "A Song for Mama" which was first heard on the "Soul Food" soundtrack. Go and get this album, you will not be disappointed.

I have listened to Boyz II Men since i was a child and i always have liked their vocals and this cd is a collection so SOME of their greatest hits for their career. The best songs to me for the album are: End of the Road, Water Runs Dry, One sweet Day, Motown Philly, Donin Just Fine, and 4 Seasons of Loneliness. DON'T get me wrong i LOVE all the songs but for me those i just posted were the best because they displayed their vocals the best and showed the creativity of their songs and how you can actually feel the songs instead of just listen to them. Boyz II Men to me is just getting started and will definity be coming again with biggers and (Probably) better things and they will definity be around for a while. This is the best collection of their songs and abilities to show off their talents. YOU MUST BUY THIS CD IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE START AND PRESENT DAY OF THEIR CAREER from what they started as to what they have become now,. This cd is worth every penny you spend and you DEFINITLY won't be sorry

Absolutely this CD was worth the buck with disc 2. Disc 2 is all that I listen to with all of the remixes especially of "I'll Make Love To You" & "Water Runs Dry". To me what separates Boyz II Men from the rest of the pack besides a group like Intro is that they talk about love and life. That is something that is definitely lacking in today's music trend. Also, this group don't really have a lot of appearances by other artists that really makes this group special. Boyz II Men has set the bar for anybody to top what they did and I don't think that the way the music is going today that no one will come close to what they have accomplished. So guys, great job and great compilation!!!
