With all the bad reviews going around about this album it needs to be said that this album is accually very good. It sounds more like another level than finally did, and is a big improvement on finally (proberly because mark middleton is back with them). Teddy Rileys production is nice the whole way thru, with more ballards than club songs. Best songs on would be "ticket to ride", "deep", "its so hard to say goodbye", "why, why?", "how we do", "bygones" and "fly" (which is on the UK version). Bygones is a nice reunion with dave hollister, although he should do more than just the background singing! i think the worst thing about the album is "wizzy wow", it just doesnt suite blackstreet and the beat is terrible! Its nice to see them making good music again after the disapointing finally, but were still waiting for an album to match another level.

The album of the decade..or century.just when we were losing faith in R&B this is a phat slice of phunk with the perfect mix between hard tracks and seasoned ballads that the industry has needed. Neptunes, Jerkins, Puffy eat your heart out..it turns out TEDDY RILEY IS BACK AS THE KING OF PRODUCERS. Untouchable ...sorry guys its over..Black street r bak.

Blackstreet was one of the most promisng R&B groups of the nineties but why they decided to change their image into R&B thugs is questionable to me. Level II was one of the worst R&B cd's ever released and only has two good songs the opener Ticket To Ride and the slow jam Deep. Other wise skip this one.

For the last 15 years, Teddy Riley has been one of r&b's most innovative tunesmiths. As one of the creators of New Jack Swing, Riley has enjoyed a winning streak of hits with Guy ("Groove Me"), Wreckx-N-Effect ("Rump Shaker") and his latest creation, Blackstreet. But while Blackstreet has put out some killer singles ("No Diggety," "Booti Call," "Girlfriend/Boyfriend"), their albums are, for the most part, frustratingly unsatisfying. On average, you'll find on their CDs 3 or 4 excellent cuts weighed down by a heap of subpar filler. But on "Level II," Riley gets it right and the result is his most consistent groove yet. Though far from perfect, there's some fun to be had by all, with the songs leaning from neo New Jack tracks to suave ballads, with a few touches of hip hop (check out Mystikal on the closer "Wizzy Wow"). The libido spirals out of control in the funked-up "She's Hot," while the it-ain't-whatchu-think "Friend of Mine" is a tight groove that stands out pretty well. The sampling yields mixed results, though. It works with the mid-tempo "Why Why," which makes good use of Michael Jackson's "Human Nature." But it doesn't work with the ballad "Look in the Water," which lazily steals the hook of Simply Red's "Holding Back the Years." Yet, at a concise 61 minutes, "Level II" doesn't wear out its welcome, and it's overall a pretty good album that's one notch above the predictability of mainstream r&b.

I don't care what anyone thinks of this 10 year old album, I still love blackstreet. I have they're first 3 albums on tape, and the first 2 albums on CD. Now I just need finally on CD, and I even have this album as well. If I get finally, my blackstreet collection will be complete. My favorite songs is, of course deep, don't touch, friend of mine, ooo girl, and brown eyes. It would be nice if all 4 of them can get back together along with dave hollister. But, can you imagine if levi little was back in the group? It would be like another super group new edition. Just a thought. This album is still bad. Teddy riley is still one of the best producers around like babyface, and r. kelly.

It's been years since BLACKstreet's last cohesive effort. (This does not include 'Finally' in 1999...which was far from a good album) In the last five years, Teddy Riley has gone from a bad BLACKstreet lineup change/album(Terrell Philips replaced Mark Middleton on 'Finally'), a failed Guy reunion, a not-so-Invincible Michael Jackson album, a bankruptcy stage and now this: the return of the 'Another Level' era BLACKstreet (their most successful lineup to date)

What keeps this album from being better than good is that there is no real outstanding material. "Don't Touch" samples The Commodores' "Brick House", but that's all it does. You can only endure the beginning of "Wizzy Wow", owner of a largely annoying and lazy hook(I think Wizzy was supposed to be the 21st century version of 'No Diggity' but whatever). The good tracks are the ballads: the haunting "Look In The Water", the Human Nature-sampled "Why? Why?", the acoustic "Bygones", the sweet "How We Do", and the mid-tempo "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye".

There's no denying Teddy Riley's impact as an innovator/producer, or for that matter, the talents of Chauncey Hannibal, Eric Williams and Mark Middleton (who should've never left the fold in '98). But this effort lacks the luster that should take them higher than "Level II". TR is still a talented producer, and it remains to be seen whether he or BLACKstreet can re-capture their late-90's glory. Furthermore, question: how can Teddy keep this BLACKstreet lineup together this time around? Answer: a comeback hit or a great album. No Diggity.
