I am serious. Jam this CD into your car and don't take it out. I HAVE to drive on I-95 everyday, and I think that I'd give into the constant calling of road rage if it wasn't for this CD. Craig Chaquico, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, 3RD Force. How can you go wrong. My personal favorite - The Panama Cat by Acoustic Alchemy. I could be stuck behind 2 jack-knifed tractor trailors and not really care.
Do yourself and your fellow drivers a favor - BUY THIS CD.

The other two compilations in this series, Vols. 1 & 3, are very disappointing. This is one of best CDs to purchase if you want to learn more about the great period of Black music that is known as New Jack Swing. This CD makes you think back to a time where R&B music was actually tolerable. I hate to listen to the radio today because of all the thrown together crap that is played all day long. If you enjoy real R&B, definitely pick this one up!

I bought this CD as a gift for my man who is currently locked up, and he loves the CD. For anyone who remembers the New Jack Swing era this is the CD for you! It will have you going back, and thinking about what you were doing when a song is playing. I know he said he listens to the CD, and just zones out to the time when things were different. Both he and I are young, so during the New Jack Swing era we were young teenagers; but we remember, and so will you!

Smooth Grooves: New Jack Ballads, Vol. 2 is the strongest of the series in my opinion. Two songs alone make this song very strong. Games by the very underrated Chuckii Booker (which T.I. should have sampled for his huge hit Why U Wanna ) and I Want My Girl by Jesse Johnson. Like its predecessor, Smooth Grooves: New Jack Ballads, Vol. 2 leans toward conventional urban R&B from the late '80s and early '90s instead of the hip-hop-inflected contemporary R&B that came to define new jack R&B. Even if the music on Vol. 2 isn't strictly new jack R&B, it's nevertheless first-rate urban soul, one of the best, most comprehensive discs of its kind on the market, featuring such hits as Guy's "Piece of My Love," Ready for the World's "Tonight," Force MDs' "Tender Love," Al B. Sure's "Nite and Day," After 7's "Ready or Not," Club Nouveau's "Heavy on My Mind" and Miki Howard & Gerald Levert's "That's What Love Is."
