Format: Audio CD
We've been waiting a little bit for Ginuwine to make his way back into the R&B market and give these newcomers a run for their money. After exploding on the scene back in 1996 with the "gotta-grow-on-you" production of Timbaland on The Bachelor, Ginuwine made us believe in him and his career when he dropped 100% Ginuwine in 1999. Dropping gems like "So Anxious," "None Of Your Friends' Business," and "What's So Different" solidified his longevity in this music business. But Ginuwine struggles to make his name recognizable and one of the biggest in the R&B world has always been more than a notion. With constant competition from fellow R&B balladeers like R Kelly and Usher, he had to keep the hits coming and remain exceptional at the same time. He put out The Life in 2001, still making the ladies feel him with "Differences" and "There It Is." He kept it going with 2003's The Senior with super hits like "Stingy" and "In Those Jeans." Now it's 2005, and it seems as if Ginuwine has finally hit a brick wall with Back II Da Basics.

Even though The Life and The Senior had decent sales and a few big hits, the albums themselves were less than stellar. So listening to Back II Da Basics was already something that was heavily pondered to begin with. But once it started playing, it became clear that there was very little discretion put into screening some of the decisions that were made on a few of these songs. "Betta Half" would undeniably be a stand out track if it weren't for Ginuwine hooting like an owl at the beginning of the song! "Oh Girl" has a lot of energy, but still comes off just as unconvincing as The Senior's "Hell Yeah." "Secrets" is one song he should have kept to himself with the obvious attempt to capitalize on the popularity of "off-key" singing from artists like Pharrell.

With his first two CD'S, The Bachelor & 100 % Ginuwine, Ginuwine set himself as an artist as one to be recockned with. Unlike other R&B lover men singers of the mid nineties, Ginuwine stood out due to the production of Timberland. On his two follow up CD'S, The Life & The Senior, Ginuwine moved tried more contemporary R&B and for the most part he succeed with classic tracks like Differences, Role Play and Tribute To A Woman from the former and In Those Jeans and Love You More from the former. On his new CD Back II Basics, early reports had Ginuwne reuniting with Timberland, but sadly he doesn't and the result is basic R&B with only the slow songs being the real standouts.

1. Intro feat. Knight - This is an intro track with someone weak rapper named Knight. **

2. Oh Girl - A nice up-tempo track that works well and starts the CD out pretty well. ***

3. Secrets - Ginuwine hooks up with Jazza Pha for a nice mid tempo track that works well and has a nice beat. *** 1/2

4. When We Make Love - The lead single that had to grow on me, I don't know why this fool decided to moan through out the track but I know I actually I like it. ****

5. Want U To Be - Ginuwine samples the classic MiJac track I Can't Help It and does a nice job, by not over singing and making a smooth track. ***

6. The Club feat.Jadakiss - A weak attempt at a club track, but Jada has a nice verse. **

7. Interlude feat. Knight - Another weak song with the weak ass Knight. *

8. She's Like - This is another weak song, the third on the CD. By this time I was ready to give up on the CD. * 1/2

9. Betta Half - G finally picks it back up with this mid tempo track; one can tell that's obliviously about his wife and former rapper Sole. ***

When I first heared, the first single for "Back To Da Basics. It was courtesy of the first video,which was "When We Make Love". And I absolutely love it. The reason being is because finally lyrically content took president with melodies that provided a connection to your soul.Which I think enables you to express love in the deepest form possible.
And yes,Ginuwine is known for his dance moves,but I think there is a time. When you as an artist want to show that you can do more then, What's expected of you. And I think this album show cases that ability. With other beauitful ballads such as"Take A Chance" Which literly touches every part of my being. And the song "Betta Half" lyrically says to me What can I do as the person Who loves you unconditionally do or say to make the situation better. "Far Away" this song right here is what I like to call When couples don't comummicated, I say that because that was the over all messages I got from the song. "I'm In Love" this was the song that did it for me, not only were the lyrics and the melody there,but Ginuwine did something not alot of artist do, and that is put out a scond single that is a ballad. Most artist if they do come out with a ballad as a first single.
They are very quick to follow up with an up tempo track. And I Thank Mr.Lumpkin not only for that but, for taking a creative chance as a whole on this album. "Glaze In MY Eye" there is so much to be said about this song,but in short I'm glad that there is at least one Genetlemen on this planet and hopefully others will follow. To say I do hurt, and thanks for taking the time to listen and allowing me to be open, honest and vulnerable with you.
