"Slow Love" was the song you played for your special someone back in the 80's. When you played this for them, they knew it was real love! The groove alone was enough and then you throw in the lyrics, sport you best Kangoo and gold chain and it was heaven. Love those days.

Doc Box & B. Fresh showed quite a bit of promise on their debut, and only album Music With a Hard, but, unfortunately, they were never given a chance to pursue that avenue and develop what they were doing. The opening track "Time to Get Smart," which is arugably the albums finest moment, is a fine chunky rap number about black unity. The new jack swing influenced "Slow Love," which is a mix of lethargic styled rap ballads, sexual brag, and very decent arrangements is probably the albums only memorable tune. "Nu Jack," is a Philly-flavored jam, which definatley picks things up right and the following track, "I'm a Survivor," continues to hold the groove right. The interesting "Darlene" has a silly rhythm and an very odd bass track; the jam has a similarly off-center style that's very welcome. Doc Box & B. Fresh seem to have been headed in the direction of DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince than, say, Public Enemy and other political Rap groups. The group had all the potential in the world to break into the mainstream and string off some huge hits, but like most early 90 era groups, Doc Box & B. Fresh were easily forgotten and would be considered one album wonders.
