5.0 out of 5 stars His music will give you that cool, relaxed feeling! October 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Jon B. since Babyface discovered him. "Someone to Love" made my heart just melt. I knew I was going to love his music after that. "Bonifide" some how just blew right pass me. I defintely made it my business to get his next release when it came out! "Cool, Relax" is the BOMB!! I can't get enough of of it. I listen to it on my way to work, coming from work, when I'm cleaning my house and all that. I even put one of his songs on my answering machine. A lot of the songs Jon wrote I can definitely relate to. The way he sings is so sexy. He's real mellow. The woman in his life is the most luckiest woman on earth. I wish I was her!

1. You bought 100 albums in the 90s and you're remaining with probably 10, this CD should be among them coz its content is still relevant even after 10 years. This album features the top 10 hit single "They don't know" produced by Tim & Bob, the team behind Bobby Valentino's success. I own all Jon B albums from Bonafide, Pleasures you like and the recent "Stronger Everyday" but "Cool Relax" is his best and one of the best albums of the 1990s.

2. You would like to get a mix of D'Angelo and Babyface who wrote "Pride & Joy" and one of the best tracks on this album, the heartbreaking balad "Love hurts". Jon B is a remedy for you if just want chilling at home with your wifey, please listen to "Tu amor" a song penned by Dianne Warren (Aerosmith, Shania Twain, Toni Braxton, LeAnn Rimes, Mary J Blige etc) and produced by David Foster (Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, All-4-one etc)...

3. The track "Are you still there" is a duet with Tupac and also one of the best rnb & hiphop collaborations.

4. This album contains no fillers, you might think it's a "Best of Collection" coz Every song is great from They don't know, Love hurts, Watcha Say Boo, up to Cool Relax).

5. Jon B is one of the few artists who have succeeded in mixing soul & hiphop cultures. The CD is not boring at all, I always discover a song whenever i play it. Listen to "Ain't going out", the chorus says:"Fellas I ain't going out cause my ol' lady's showing me how she likes to keep me in the house to do my homework...". Stimes when you just wanna chill with your boo and don't wanna hang out with friends, just listen to this album, that's why it's called "Cool Relax" coz it's for the grown & Sexy guys. This album is really a true masterpiece.

For those who collect Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, D'Angelo, Babyface or R Kelly CDs, please there is a genius but underrated artist you must add in your catalog... Jon B.

5.0 out of 5 stars BOB YOUR HEAD TO THIS! January 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
WHEN A VANILLA BROTHA CAN HIT THE WAY JON DID ON R&B CHARTS, WELL YOU KNOW YOU GOT A WINNER. HE CAME TO US WITH "SOMEONE TO LOVE", AND "PRETTY GIRL", AND HE AIN'T STOPPED BANGIN YET. HIS LYRICS AND MUSIC HIT YOU IN A WAY THAT MAKES YOU (MAN/WOMAN)BOB, FEEL WHERE HE'S COMIN FROM. "COOL..RELAX" WAS THE BOMB. I DON'T KNOW HOW HARD HE WORKED ON THIS CD, BUT HIS MUSIC AND VOICE SEEM EFFORTLESS, AND YOU CAN VIBE WITH HIS FLOW. I ENJOYED EVERY LAST SONG ON THIS CD. EVEN IF YOU BUY THIS WITHOUT HEARING IT FIRST, YOU'LL STILL COME OUT ON TOP, CAUSE HE'S JUST THAT DEEP ON THIS. DON'T MISS OUT ON A GOOD THING. CHECK HIM OUT, HE'S WORTH IT. AND JON IF YOU SHOULD READ THIS, OR YOUR MANAGERS AND AGENTS SHOULD COME ACROSS THIS, ALL I WANT TO SAY IS; DON'T STAY GONE LONG. WE'RE WAITING FOR YA OUT HERE, AND WE KNOW THAT WHATEVER YOU DROP NEXT WILL BE BANGING.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Cool Relax.... March 13, 2001
By Ava
Format:Audio CD
I've had this cd since 1998 and lately I've been listening to it off and on. This cd is very mellow, has a nice flow and the beats are bangin'. It also has a nice range of slow and uptempo jams. Jon B has a beautiful voice that flows real well with his music. My favorite jams are Shine (my absoulute favorite on the whole cd), Don't Say, They Don't Know, Are U Still Down featuring 2Pac, I Do(Whatcha Say Boo), Pride & Joy, and Love Hurts. Jon B did a very good job on his sophmore effort. He has a new single out right now "Don't Talk" and it's blazin' hot so I know his forthcoming cd has got to be hot too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 3, 2005
By L. Tran
Format:Audio CD
This CD was my first Jon B. injection. The first time that I heard his talent was through the track "they don't know", from this point on, I was hooked for life. There are artists out there that releases a CD that only contains a FEW songs that you can listen to, but with Jon B. and "Cool Relax" all his tracks are something to look forward to. Everything from "Shine" to "Tu Amor" is worth listening to and worth every penny that you're going to spend on this CD. You can't go wrong! If you're a fan of Babyface, Boys II Men, 112 and so many others in the R&B family (like myself) then you're going to love Jon B. He's not only hot, but he has a voice to back up the success in his career.

5.0 out of 5 stars R&B at it's Best !!!! November 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The other day I came upon "Cool Relax" and it took me back. The music is mellow, at the same time jazzy, and Jon's smooth delivery put's it all together. He truly outdid himself with his sophomore album. He took a more "lovemaking" approach to R&B music, instead of the typical "let's have sex" theme, which was the theme of the 90s. His musicality is reminiscent to that of the Isley Brothers, Teddy Pendergrass, The Commodores, etc. I have to say that "Cool Relax" is one of his best albums! I love every song on the CD, so it's extremely hard to choose what songs are the best.

He truly projects real emotion in each of the cuts. The song "Love Hurts" makes more sense then you realize, when you really are hurt by someone you love, and for anyone who has ever been involved with someone who let's other people get involved into the relationship tell them "They don't know." Altogether I don't ever recall pressing skip.

In "They Don't Know" you can sense the frustration he feels in that people are trying to interfere with his love and make it seem insincere. In "Can't Help It" you can sense much anger, confusion, and frustration. "I Do (Whatcha Say Boo?)" is one of the many songs in which Jon pours his heart out and lets us, the listeners, feel all of the love he is expressing.

I have to applaud Jon B. for his incredible talent!!... He truly has a gift and I, as well as many others, are thankful that he is sharing that gift with the world! I LOVE this album and think it should be in everyone's personal collection, whether it's used for personal enjoyment or that SPECIAL evening with a loved one.
