Product Description

On Late Night Special demonstrates the growth and maturity of Pretty Ricky's lyrics, production, and vocals. Forget everything else on the menu--Pretty Ricky is your one and only Late Night Special.

Amazon.com

Pretty Ricky pretty much have sex on the brain, and with hits like "Grind with Me" and "Your Body" off 2005's Blue Stars winning the Miami foursome overnight superstardom, you sort of can't expect them to mess with the formula. That explains the obvious if-it-ain't-broke approach the boy-band of brothers took on this, their sophomore CD: If song titles like "Up and Down" and "Push It" don't say it all, lyrics, as in the unapologetically raunchy ones to "Personal Trainer," most certainly will. Look beyond the sleaze (some of it borderline sweet, as in the line "I've been thinkin' about you all day/In a nasty, passionate way" from "So Confused"), and what you'll find on Late Night Special is a whole lotta talent, though. Pretty Ricky is the current decade's answer to Jodeci, with a little Bone Thugs thrown in; "On the Hotline" brings the heat of the latter, and "Make it Like it Was" steps up with the taut hooks of the former. --Tammy La Gorce

I love this CD!

I tried hard not to like Pretty Ricky when Bluestars came out, because my then 14 year-old stepdaughter adored them. I overheard some of the songs she listened to and, though I would have preferred she NOT listen to their raunchy lyrics, I had to admit that they are good at what they do and display a reasonable amount of talent.

I got Late Night Special yesterday and listened to every song. This CD is hot from beginning to end! Having successfully passed the sophomore album hurdle, Pretty Ricky has demonstrated that they possess true staying power.

Depending on what you wanted to hear depends on which content you bought. If you brought the Explict verison of course you are going to hear something that deals with sex on every song. Duh. These guys are 21 what else would they be sing about. If you wanted to hear something more soothing and less about sex buy the clean version. As Baby blue said " the clean is for songs about love and being in love, the expicit is for making love"

The sophomore "Late Night Special" has hot beats and hot lyrics. Mixed with slow grooves, nice vocals, and sexy raps. This album compared to Bluestars is a bit more on the adult level than the last. They're really showing a lot of improvement in the music industry that should get more praise. I would recommend it to all fans and even new listeners.

Favorite Tracks:

On the Hotline

Stay

Love Like Honey

So Confused

Drop whatever you're doing, jump in your car, and buy this album immediately. The longer you delay doing this, the longer your life will be meaningless and empty. This album is haunting, uplifting, magical, and as close to perfection as anything could ever be. The new masterpiece by Pretty Ricky is so much more than "candy for the ears" and is sure to go down in history as one the most celebrated musical marvels of our time .

If I may be so bold, I predict that the release of this album will undoubtedly restore social tranquility in the Mideast and other war torn nations, and decimate the current state of arrested economic growth, not just within the U.S., but for all nations.

After listening to " Late Night Special" the listener will without question be left reeling in a blissful state of bewilderment for hours. This album also raises two very crucial questions. 1) Was the album produced/mixed by a higher deity? 2) Are the fellas of pretty Rick mere mortals? Well, Yes and No is all you need to know. Further exploration into this topic is far beyond the grasp of human comprehension.

Songs such as "Up and Down" can only be described as emotionally super-charged power love ballads, while "So confused" beautifully orchestrates sounds that will leave the listener weeping for hours.

"Late Night Special" is definitely the groups magnum opus and is unmatched by other so called musical masterpieces from the past. This is hands down the most unrivaled and exquisite musical creation on the face of the earth.

So I was kind of skeptical about this cd. But I gave it a try anyway. And I am pretty glad that I did. The cd is great! All the songs are good and the boys blend the vocals and rapping perfectly. The rap lyrics, could have been stepped up a bit though. The beats are well produced too. Overall, I say Pretty Ricky did their thing on this album. They don't even begin to compare to Jodeci, but they are worth checking out.

I was pleasantly surprised about the sophomore album, of the group Pretty Ricky. I was feeling this album's first single "On The Hotline", and decided to pick up the album. I was afraid that it was going to be just some teenage boy band trash, that has a few catchy songs; which is the reason why I didn't pick up their first album originally. This in my opinion was far from it. In an interview, the Miami based group, mentioned how they didn't want the record label, Atlantic Records, to change the essence of who they were. They used their own money to produce this album, in order to use the same people, that made their first album a moderate success. I think they made a wise choice in this decision.

This album gave me a late 80's to mid 90's boy group vibe, which I didn't mind at all. I might be alone in this comparison, but i dare to say even a today's Jodeci vibe, with the exception of rap verses. This vibe was visible especially in songs, like "Stay", "Late Night Special", "Make It Like It Was." They again make, the r&b and rap flow seamlessly together in each song. I would have liked to have seen them switch it up a little, and not have everybody do a a rap verse on every song. Maybe on a few songs have it just rap or just r&b, because even though Marcus "Pleasure" Cooper, is the primary R&B singer of the group, I believe they all have the ability to sing, or at least carry a tune. But as their motto seems to be, on this album, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

The only song I didn't care for was the raunchy "Personal Trainer", which wasn't necessarily for this album. Nothing sexy about this song at all, and also seemed like a bad version of Kanye West "The New Workout Plan." My favorites being "Stay" and "Honey.
