4.0 out of 5 stars Dope Album (4.5 Stars) October 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was 15 when this album was released. I remember seeing BBD reunite with the rest of New Edition on the slammin' "Word To The Mutha" video. I immediately shook my mom down for $20 and headed straight to Sam Goody. If you were around to witness the dance craze that is known as the "New Jack Swing" era, then you know BBD created one hell of a buzz with their 1st album (Poison). Then to follow that up with a remix album that was actually good was simply unheard of. Aside from Mary J Blige's remix album, all the other remix albums that we were being bombarded with during the new jack era were either commercial failures or they just plain sucked (especially Bobby Brown's remix album). This album stood out though. It just had that "it" factor that made it tight. The DJ/Radio Station format was also hot. I had never sat through an entire BBD album until this album came out (I skipped a lot of songs on Poison). I was locked in to this album from start to finish. I think what made this album so tight was the fact that they took songs that were already smash hits and made them even better. The "Do Me! (Smoothe Mix)" is way better than the original in my opinion and BBD (I Thought It Was Me)(DJ Mo Grind Time Mix) was also tighter than the original version. This album was an instant hit in 1991. Most of these remixes are just as good if not better than their predecessors.

There really aren't any negatives to be associated with this album. Honestly, I think the remix for "I Do Need You" was hot, but if you're going to remix a song, it should be better than the original and this remix wasn't. The negatives end there though.

Overall, I'd have to say that this album is dope. Actually, this album STILL bumps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Part Interview / Part Remix Album April 4, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"WBBD-Bootcity!" is part interview, part remix album, redoing all of BBD's songs from their 1990 release, "Poison." The first track on here (aptly named "Intro/D.J. Opening") opens with a sample of "Iesha" by Another Bad Creation, followed by the DJ's opening, then swings right in to "Word to the Mutha!" The same DJ breaks in again at the end of tracks 4, 6, and 11, in addition to tracks 1 and 7. Track #7, with "Uhh Ahh" by Boyz II Men appropriately playing in the background (considering the conversation topic), contains a brief interview of the band, talking about high heels, women's "figures," and basketball (really deep interview, I know ;).
The music alternates between being rough and thug-ish (#3: "Ain't Nut'in' Changed"), highly sexual (two versions of "Do Me"--#5: a smooth, slower remix; and #10: a faster, more synthed version), and romantic (#6: "I Do Need You" and #11: "When Will I See You Smile Again?"), without pushing its PG-13 limit. Like the front cover states, this group/CD is ideal for listeners who like "hip-hop, smoothed out on the r&b tip, with a pop feel appeal to it."

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, A Distinguished Remix Album! April 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Anchored by B.B.D.'s reunion with fellow members of New Edition on "Word To The Mutha", the trio surprisingly turned out a decent remix album. During this time, a barrage of remix albums were hitting the shelfs, having the same intentions of B.B.D., milk out all of their enormous popularity in a logistical manner. For most, it failed. But for B.B.D., it worked. Like "Poison", the trio manufactured another inventive album with a smash hit to prove its credibility.
To no surprise, the smash cut is the highlight, but other gems include Do Me! (smooth version), which is noticeably more interesting than the original, and the electronic/house version of "Let Me Know Somethin!", which is reminiscent of Snap! or C & C Music Factory. Also of note is the creative radio-style program format they use to portray the album, with D.J. interludes and a very interesting interview mid-way through the set.
If B.B.D. had another smash single from this set, i would have definitely marked it a 5, as "Word To The Mutha" merits 3 stars alone. Nevertheless, their work is still commendable. For all intents and purposes, B.B.D. succeeded in tying their fans over into their long-anticipated sophomore follow-up. They achieved platinum standing and, coinciding with a enonymous smash in "Poison", became one of the leading figures of new jack swing. Needless to say, if you already have "Poison", it would be a wise investment to purchase this album as well.

By Preston
Format:Audio CD
Bell Biv Devoe had perhaps the best remix album long before R. Kelly and P. Diddy had their remix songs and albums. Everything kicks hard here, from the New Edition sung Word To The Mutha, to the Poison songs' remixes, to the heavy funk of She's Dope and so forth! My favorite is the Wolf and Epic-remix of Do Me (Smoothe). Wished it was a minute longer than its three minutes, but it is a smoothly done, percussion driven song. The keyboards glide so smooth on its nice bridges. It sounds so nice in its ballad version. Ronnie Devoe and Mike Bivins' cools raps just glide over the hard beats of the remixes while Ricky Bell's soulful singing is so superb on all of the tracks. This is mental to the thousandth power on this album, as their street edge dominates on these edgy songs. Sometimes, these remixes are far better than the album versions. A very hot remix album to this day!
