The "Ghetto EnVogue" (as some critics called them) return with their sophomore album, "Off the Hook". I don't think that there is ANY album out there that has the most appropriate title. These girls and this album are both off the hook.
There aren't any uptempo tracks on the album, but that certainly doesn't take away from it. The midtempo songs fare perfectly, starting with the excellent remake of Isaac Hayes' "Do Your Thing". The girls come strong with "Feels So Good", which shows both their ruggedness and their sensuality with the lyrics and harmonies, respectively. "Hard To Say Goodbye" is a very good song with marvelous harmony. The sexual "Can't Hang" provides a challenge to men who claim they are effective in the bedroom, but turn out not to be, lol. "What Can I Do" brings to mind the New Jack Swing movement that was evident on their debut album, but still does not take away from the album. "Keep It On the Real" sounds a little off, but the harmonies keep you interested and will make you sing along (if you can learn the words to the hook).
Of course, Xscape is best known for their singing ability, and if the midtempo songs were any indication, Xscape does NOT disappoint on the slower ballads. "Who Can I Run To" has to be the most memorable remake of the 90s (and still prevalent today), and definitely should be. The Scott sisters (LaTocha and Tameka) deliver well on the leads, and the background harmonies are PERFECT. "Do You Want To" is an excellent song that brings to mind to slow grooving times of the mid-90s. And the harmonies are excellent. "Do Like Lovers Do" is a good love-making song with the thumping beats and sensual lyrics. "Work Me Slow" is self-explanatory! A very good song.

I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of Xscape, but their debut album was good, and "Feels So Good", this album's first single, really caught my attention. My brother and I went into a music store one day and we heard this album playing, and all we heard was one other song and that was enough for us to buy the album...which isn't always a wise decision. But it certainly was in THIS case.
There weren't many female groups around back in '95, so Xscape didn't have much competition (if any). In the long run it didn't matter, because this is one album that true R&B fans shouldn't be without. Jermaine Dupri spun out great production in jazzy tracks like "What Can I Do" and "Love's A Funny Thing". "Feels So Good" is something everyone can enjoy even though it's technically geared toward the ladies, but then there's the playful "Can't Hang" that has them challenging the men...and it turns out we're up to that challenge (I am, anyway).
For those listeners looking for ballads like "Understanding" on here, you're in luck. My personal favorite, "Do You Want To", is a great straight-to-the-point song about making love, while they do a remarkable job on The Jones Girls' "Who Can I Run To". And I hope you didn't forget about "Work Me Slow". That's right up there with any Silk song for baby-making music.
I'm not sure if the last track, "Keep It On The Real", is a song on an outro, because it sounds like a lengthened version of the intro, "Do Your Thang". Also, those weird notes Tiny tries to hit (especially in "Do You Want To") are a little irritating. But that doesn't ruin the song, and it definitely doesn't ruin the album. The verdict is in: Off the Hook is indeed off the hook.

I love this album . This is Xscape's sophmore album it is just as good as the others it has a lot of wonderful songs on here . Every last one of these girls can sing. This is a great cd I love it. I like every song on here. They did a remake of "Who can I run to? by the Jones Girls and they did it very well. My favorite songs on here are: Can't Hang, Feels so Good, Who can I run to?, Do You want to?, and other great songs buy this cd you will be very glad that you did!!!!

"Off the Hook" is a must have for R&B lovers. This album has some of modern R&B's esstential songs such as "Who Can I Run To?" and "Do You Want To?" Xscape hails from Atlanta and recorded this album while on SoSo Def Records. They got the name "Xscape" from a hair salon that they frequent in Atlanta. This group is definitely one of the most memorable R&B groups of the 1990's. Their harmony is a very good one and they had a successful career.

I enjoy this album each time I listen to it. They are vocally strong and consistent and their lyrics are also very nice. They are quite sexual on this album, which is fine, because they are definitely tasteful. An example of this being "Work Me Slow". Though the ladies are blatant, they have a certain amount of class about themselves, something R&B fans knows is growing more and more rare with the passing of time. "Feels So Good" is one of the album's better cuts, although everything about it is rather simple, including the lyrics, production and vocals. It's a nice mid-tempo track to follow opening cut "Do Your Thang", also a good song. "Do You Want To?" is a nice ballad and one of the songs that this album will be remembered for. This song is about a woman wanting to make love to her man, and she wonders if he, too, wants to. The group showcased some of their best vocals on this song, maybe their best song vocally. "Who Can I Run To" is just beautiful. LaTocha does a great job leading the group in this song. The song is a ballad and received a lot of airplay; music listeners loved it. "Love's a Funny Thing" and "Keep it on the Real", while both decent, are not the best way to end an album. Traditionally, an R&B album is ended with a ballad, I guess they wanted to be innovative.
