Not bad, but too much fat
on November 11, 1999
Well, the songs I really wanted to hear on this album are absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, the rest of the songs are just a lot of mainstream R&B junk that get boring at times.
The outstanding tracks on the album are those by The Roots, Maxwell (both tracks are awesome), Me'Shell and Lauryn Hill. I was pleasantly surprised by Eric Benet & Faith Evans' tracks.
Unfortunately, the rest I find very boring and they sound like the rest of R&B on the radio. In fact, the title track, The Best Man I Can Be (by Genuwine, Case, R.L. and Tyrese) is down-right corny. Four guys singing a love song to one another? Damn... that's weak.
But, the strong songs definitely make up for this album. The Roots and Maxwell alone are worth the price of the CD!
