After scoring massive success with his first two albums, Make It Last Forever and I'll Give All My Love to You, Keith Sweat's third album, Keep It Comin', signaled something of a creative and commercial slump for the new jack pioneer, which continued through 1994's Get Up on It. However, Get Up on It is not a bad album by any means. In fact, the set is classic Keith Sweat, filled to the brim with the pleading ballads that made this Harlem crooner so popular. Sweat began to utilize female background vocals, courtesy of Kut Klose, to full effect on this album, especially on the hit title track (one of the album's shining moments), a trend that he perfected on his huge 1996 self-titled comeback album. So Get Up on It finds Sweat in a stage of transition, leaving the formula that began to grow stale on Keep It Comin' and beginning to feature female backing vocals at center stage, somewhat similar to what Barry White and Luther Vandross had done before him. Get Up on It churned out two other singles, the up-tempo yet slightly unimaginative "How Do You Like It?" (which, as the set's lead single, didn't really work to catapult the album to massive early sales) and the big ballad "When I Give My Love," which is pure Keith Sweat. Other standouts include "Put Your Loving Through the Test," featuring the late Roger Troutman, and "Telephone Love." For fans of classic Keith Sweat, R&B ballads, and mid-tempo grooves, this album will do.

Have had this CD since Keith released it in '94 and still love it. The songs like "Put Your Lovin Through The Test" (RIP Roger Troutman) and "Get Up On It" are instant classics. Most of the other songs on the CD (like For You-You Got Everything) are great songs too My wife listen to this CD all the time and move and groove to it. Keith was the best R&B artist in the late 80s and continues to be today, here in 2000. Great R&B so go buy it.

I always thought "Get Up On It", Keith Sweat's fourth album as underrated from his other albums, but since I bought the album about three weeks ago I think I have clearly underestimated this album.
The slow songs on this album is arguably his best material! "It Gets Better", "Get Up On It", and "Grind On You" are my three favorites from this album. But Keith, take it from me, STICK TO THE SLOW SONGS!!!

I have owned this CD for several years, since it first came out around 1995 or so. I love these songs by Keith Sweat. My favorite is "My Whole World." He made other CD's after this one, but I preferred his style during this period of his career. All the tracks on this CD are well worth listening to.

I have been a devoted Keith Sweat fan since his 1988 debut album "Make It Last Forever". All of his albums since then boast wonderful slow songs, and this CD is no exception. It's a fool-proof formula: play a Keith Sweat slow-jam and romance is soon to follow!

Possibly his best album. 'It Gets Better' and 'Get Up On It' are legendary KS tracks!! Old school gone modern.

Even when Keith is not at his best, he is still pretty good. There are about two songs on this entire CD i did not like, and that is it. It gets better, get up on it, telephone love, come into my bedroom, when i give my love, put your lovin through the test (which is the best song on the CD), and for you (you've got everything) are all great songs on this CD. Even though this is not his best CD (i think his CD "Still In the Game" is Sweats best CD), it is still awesome! I would recommend you getting this CD if you really like Keith Sweat and early 90s R&B. So go get it!

Once again, Keith Sweat, the best in the R&B business, has another great CD. Ever since I have got this CD 3 years ago, I have not stopped listening to it. With songs like Put Your Lovin Through The Test (with Roger Troutmans great synthesized voice), Kut Klose on the hit song Get Up On It, the Interlude (How Do You Like It?), For You (You Got Everything), and Telephone Love, you just cannot deny this CD. If you love Keith Sweat and his music, this Cd is a must. Keith Sweat and his music is so sexy!
