After Finally, Teddy Riley's third album with Blackstreet, failed to click with the group's once-vast audience, the modern-soul mastermind found the time right to hook up again with Aaron and Damien Hall. Together in the early '90s, the trio gave Riley his first taste of stardom following his inspired combination of R&B and hip-hop in the hybrid sound of new jack swing. Unfortunately, III isn't always the surefooted comeback fans hoped for. While uptempo tracks such as "Dancin'" successfully combine layered harmonies and smooth, up-to-date beats, the disc's many ballads find the act floundering. Indeed, the worst of them recall Aaron Hall's smarmy solo work. But then, Riley himself has always seemed more at home stoking dance-floor fires than kindling the flames of romance. --Rickey Wright

I wouldn't recommend this release to today's R&B fan.
"nottap34"
Teddy sounds like his doesn't want to produce and it shows-BIG TIME. "Do It" and "Teddy's Jam III" sound like Guy outtakes from 1990!
J. Johnson
I am disappointed in the albums nowadays that only have one or two cuts on them that are good and the rest are garbage.

"Guy III" has a song for everybody. It is filled to the rim with a blend of soul and funk which will blow your mind! Whether it be a club rump shaker like "Do It" or a funk masterpiece like "Teddy's Jam III" or a power ballad like "Why you wanna keep me from my baby", or even a latin soul cut like "Don't U Miss Me", this album will keep you pleased from start to finish. Teddy Riley brings the beats, Aaron and Damian Hall bring the soulful voices, and Guy, united at last, serves up an album for the ages.

Welcome back the new and the improved Guy for the year 2000.Aaron Hall and Damion reunite with Teddy for the first time in years to produce the freshest r&b flava for the future that we can get down too.With Blackstreets latest album not a hit at least Teddy will make it big on this one.Every song is a hit on this one well worth your money so go out and buy this masterpiece.

Talk about long gaps between albums a full decade before releasing another one wow ! This album follows the same formula as their debut.. GUY.. and their second one The Future.. As a whole the album sounds very dated.. you can call it retro at best.. which is cool with me.. the material doesnt break any new grounds.. but still make it enjoyable listening .. Aaron hasnt sound better on the ballads .. then he does on this effort which seem to make most of the tracks on Guy III.. Of the Uptempo Cuts .. You should give these a listen:
Teddy's Jam III: Which borrows from Zapp/Roger 's Dance Floor and I can make you dance.. a very nice homage to the Troutman brothers..
Do it : Rump shaking hip hop tune..
Dancin
Spend Time
Of the ballads check these out
Why you wanna keep me from my baby
Love Online
Fly Away
Rescue me
Dont u miss me featuring a clever acoustic-spanish Guitar riff
Welcome back TEDDY, AARON, DAMION

Had this been guy's first album i would've said that it's an excellent debut set. However, this is guy's third album and they've set very high standards, may be too high even for the creators of new jack swing to reach again. There are 4 or 5 excellent tracks but the rest makes you wonder if Teddy has lost the plot. "Rescue me" and "why you wanna keep me from my baby" are outstanding (Aaron's voice is awesome, R.Kelly step aside). Those two tracks along with the dance floor masterpiece "dancin'"(thanks to Eddie F) hold the album together. "Teddy's Jam III" is a reminsce of the old guy. The presence of Blackstreet's Eric Williams and Terrell Philips on a couple of songs makes you think a new Blackstreet set is on the horizon. This is a good album and worth buying but not the great album you would expect from a great group, may be we'll have to wait for the remixes.

It's been a while, but Teddy, Aaron, and Damion proved that they could re-unite with their voices. I saw their video Dancin', and it is really good. Also Why You Wanna Keep Me From My Baby is a truthful video because it talks about a man not seeing his son (the woman ends up taking the boy away for no reason). Plus, the slow songs are beautiful and make you feel like you're with someone in a room. They were good back in the 80s, and they're good now. Oh, yeah. Don't forget about Teddy's Jam III--that joint is tight, ha ha.

Like many of you I was dissappointed when I first listen to the CD, so I played it twice and then put it away feeling let down, but then something happened. I found myself watching the video "WHY U WANNA KEEP ME FROM MY BABY" and was thoroughly impressed with the video and the song being played on the airwaves. I realized that this is not the Guy of 'old' but a group that has grown and shows their musical diversity. On tracks #4 and #7, Aaron shows why he is the cornerstone of this group which he also did on his last solo album which was phenonmenal but did not get much backing. I wish Aaron and Eric Williams of 'BlackStreet' would have sung leads on a track together since Eric has by far the best voice of member of 'BlackStreet' since Dave Hollister. Those so-called 'hardcore' Guy fans need to grow-up, which is what Guy has done with this album. The thing that would be ashamed is if they broke-up again because of all the inner-turmoil that led to their first break-up. There is a maturity to this album that you have to listen to appreciate. I know that if they stay together that their next album will be even better.....

It's been almost 10 yrs. since Guy ruled the music world with their New Jack Swing sound. Now Teddy Riley and brothers Aaron and Damion Hall are back to reclaim the urban music crown. "Dancin'," the group's first single from Guy III, is the perfect night club anthem. It combines Aaron's muscular vocals with the sounds of the current urban music flavor (a fine mixture of R&B and Hip-hop). You'll have the need to groove on other tracks like "Teddy's Jam III," which incorporates a sample of Roger Troutman's funk, "Do It," a track about gettin' it on tonight wit'someone hot, and "2004," a groovin' anthem for the future. Guy also turns the lights down wit' "Not A Day," "Rescue Me," and "Tellin' Me No," all tracks which feature Aaron's and Damion's vocal prowess. Guy III definitely reveals what urban music will sound for the millennium. Watch out for Guy2K...
