To the person who wrote about Darius Rucker from Hootie And the Blowfish: You're an idiot and you apparantly don't have a clue and know absolutely nothing about music. Aside from that, this a decent second time around for BBD, of course it's not as ground- breaking as Poison, but if you like their style, you'll dig this. Expect to hear a couple of good ballads by Ricky, one written and produced, and even background sung by Babyface.

Though it took an extra year for this CD to be released, it really was worth the wait. You will find that majority of the songs could have been released today. It's way ahead of its time. This CD has a much harder hiphop edge than the "Poison" CD. The guys definetly had the right idea, it's just that nobody was into that type of a mixture of " rhythm and blues" and "hiphop". Songs like "Lovely" and "Guetto Booty" will have your rump shakin', while "Somethin' In Your Eyes" will put you and your loved one in the mood."Above The Rim" is for the b-ballers with "Show Me The Way" having a positive message with a tight track behind it. A must have for your sound system.

Don't believe the (lack of) hype with this album. It's one of the most under-rated records of the 90s. Other reviewers can insult this work of art all they want -- I doubt they've even bothered listening to it. It seems to me BBD has been a group people found easy to dismiss as a one or two hit wonder. This is preposterous. In my opinion, outside of remixes, BBD released only great songs (on two albums) ... this, Poison, and the "Gangsta" single represent a truly superior body of work.

I honestly don't understand why people don't speak of this album as much as they do Poison (absolutely amazing as well). In my honest opinion, this was a great follow up album, and one of my absolute favorites. Definitely a must have.

Bell Biv Devoe is a part of the New Edition family tree that also includes solo Ralph Tresvant, Johnny Gill Bobby Brown and Ricky Bell. No one in the music industry has ever acheived what thay have. There are a group of few artits who don't suffer from the sophmore slump. When this CD was released in the summer of 93 it turned few heaeds expect for the true fans of the NE. The songs Nickel, Above The Rim, Hootie Mack, Lovely and Ghetto Booty. The slow jams Something In Your Eyes, Please Come Back and Lost In The Moment are in this order a great bedromm track, a sad slow jam and another drop the panties slow jam were all hot. If you have't copped Ricky's CD yet get it in stores now and look for the new BBD album in spring 2001.

I loved the vibe of this album. Its getting terrible reviews but see for yourself. The album is worth buying just for the song, " Something in Your Eyes " . This song is the reason that Ricky Bell should not stop singing. He can blow like no other. " Please Come Back " and " Lost in the Moment " are great tracks as well. Fatim who ? I dont think he could come close to that of Mr. Bell. Ricky Bell did a solid job and MCA buried this CD, not BBD . BBD can still hang with anything put out there in this day and age.

Hootie Mack was the second studio LP from Bell Biv DeVoe. Circa 1989 - 90, the alumni of New Edition (including Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant) began a hot streak of solo (and in BBD's case, spinoff-group) hits. BBD's debut LP Poison was multi-platinum and yielded several substantive chart hits, including at the crossover level. By working with a combination of hip-hop friendly producers, BBD crafted a hybrid hip-hop/R&B sound that fit in perfectly with the nascent new jack swing movement in urban music.
Hootie Mack attempted to recreate the formula, but with mixed results. Strangely, none of the original collaborators on the Poison LP (Hank Shocklee, Elliot "Freeze" Straite, Timmy Gatling) were found here. Early lead single "Gangsta" (which attempted to build buzz in late '92) failed to make the final cut of the album's 11 songs (cassette purchasers at the time had to settle for 10). The LP lead-off song here is "Nickel", a pro-pot ode that owed something to the then-recent success of folks like Cypress Hill, Redman and Dr. Dre. The basketball-themed "Above the Rim" was a nice up-tempo number, but not quite in "Poison" territory.
In fact, none of the songs here are. "Ghetto Booty" was a thematic sibling to Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back"; "Straight from the Back" is a barely-coded paean to Kama Sutra sensibilities. Not that it makes them bad records, per se, but on the previous album the guys limited the horn-dog carrying on to "Do Me". Unchecked libido is definitely the driving lyrical force on this album.
It is perhaps ironic, then, that the biggest hit here ended up being the more subdued-in-comparison ballad "Something in Your Eyes" (penned and produced by Babyface.
