Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Once En Vogue proved that old-fashioned gospel-soul female harmonies could create sparks with modern street beats, every record company went looking for young singers to hook up with new-jack-swing producers. Those efforts bear fruit with SWV, which stands for Sisters with Voices, and the three teenaged singers from New York really do have great pipes, capable of a distinctive sound that can dominate a production rather than the other way around. Cheryl "Coko" Gordon, the trio's lead singer, boasts a great range that allows her to sound tough and sultry in her gritty alto, and romantic and flirty in her trilling soprano. SWV's debut album includes 13 different songs, plus two alternate mixes, and the best tracks are the 10 written and produced by Brian Alexander Morgan, who knows how to create the melodies that all great harmonies must start with. The first single, "Right Here," features a very funky, push-and-pull rhythm track, but the three singers reclaim the song with harmonies that are very percussive themselves but with lots of melody and romantic personality as well. The single, "Weak," is a ballad that allows Gordon to confess her infatuated weakness without ever sounding like a weakling as she hits the beats confidently and purrs in anticipation. --Geoffrey Himes

I love every single song on here.

SWV's "It's About Time" is one of those cds that you can listen to all the time at anytime, and despite of what era it was made in, this cd never gets old.

All of the tracks on "It's About Time" are good and Coko definetly has the singing skills to showcase her distinctive voice.

I got "It's About Time" as soon as it came out. SWV were very hot back in the day and I'm glad that they faded away gracefully without selling out. What I liked about these three young women was that they were very talented and they didn't change their style for anybody. Then again, that was the early 1990s and you still had a lot of good music out back then as opposed to now. All of the tracks on "It's About Time" are good and Coko definetly has the singing skills to showcase her distinctive voice. SWV were awesome and I wish they'd get back together.

This album takes me right back to elementary school. "It's About Time" is one of the most memorable albums from my childhood. I remember walking home from school and singing the chorus to "Weak." I can just recall so many memorable things when listening to this breezy, beautiful album. In addition, my other favorites from this great album are "Downtown," "Right Here (Human Nature Remix)," "Black Pudding," the aforementioned "Weak," and "Think You're Gonna Like It." Hell...even the acapella of "Weak" makes you feel exactly what the title says.

"It's About Time" takes me back to my young days, as a pre-teen. I remember well, listening to tracks on this album, on our local R&B radio station. What made SWV stand out, as a trio, was their great ability to blend different voice types together. They all had lower voices, but Coco, in particular, demonstrated her command of her lovely alto range. This is heard especially on tracks like "I'm So Into You" (with the infectious hook, and catchy melody) and "Weak" (which was later covered by that teen pop star, JoJo---their version is FAR superior to hers, by leaps and bounds). My favorite cut is "Right Here (Human Nature Remix)." This combines a sample of "Human Nature" by Michael Jackson, with their lovely vocals.

These are the types of songs you put on, when you and your sweetie are getting together for a romanctic evening. Just turn the tracks on, pour the wine, and enjoy these Sisters With Voices. ......

This is one of my favourite cds of all time, because of the how many good songs there are on here, almost 5 hits on one cd, classic hits like "Weak". Weak is one of those difinitive classic r and b songs that is universal and loved by almost everyone. This whole cd reminds me of the best of times in my life where I was young and life was magical, love was in full bloom. Other tracks I love are "Right Here", "Downtown", "Think your Gonna like it", "coming home", "that what I need" (i've cried over this song many times), "im so into u" just about the whole entire cd, which is rare! About the only song I don't listen to is "Blak Puddin", that song is a waste. There is a good remix of "Anything" on the remix cd of SWV. This cd is just a classic, i've brought on my roads trips to Las Vegas, jamming it in the greyhound bus watchin' the desert go by. My sister actually got to see SWV in Japan about 2 years ago. They played a small club there and my sister doesn't even like SWV, she said they were awful. She said all the Japanese people were singing along to thier hit "Weak". Maybe one day they will put out one more album. Coko is a born again christian now so I doubt it, but SWV's music still lives on.

I bought this cd when it first came out in 1992 and am still playing it today! This is my alltime favorite black girl group debut cd. The songs are beyond catchy and these girls can really sing. I'm amazed that these were the voices of teenage girls when this was first released. Koko's voice is the standout, but all three girls are amazing. The beats and music production are first rate and really compliment the singers. The production doesn't overshadow the singing, and it's not just the beats that make the songs great. On many cds it's the beat that sells the song and many times saves it, but in the case of the girls of SWV these girls don't need fancy production to help them. Listen to the acapella version of Weak where they sing with no music and you'll know that the talent these girls have is obvious. You can tell these girls have a gospel background with their sweet harmonies. I wish i could rate this as six stars. Even today, more than ten years after this cd first came out, it still holds up good and sounds great.Their second and third cds are hit and miss. The second cd is very good, with a more mature and seasoned feeling to it and more ballads than dance tracks. I still like the debut cd better. The third cd had a few good tracks on it, but i found they stuck way too much rap into it, especially when they chose to put Snoop Doggy Dog on one of the tracks. Bad choice!! Too bad the group was having problems by the third cd and they split up, which seems to be the norm for groups these days. Koko went solo after the split and released a very disappointing cd. I only heard it once and never played it again. After the catchy great songs when she was in SWV, i was shocked at how bland the material on her solo cd was.Read more ›
