Welcome to Nextacy
Next perfects the art of the hip-hop tinged, R&B ghetto hymn on Welcome II Nextasy, a slick and explicit soundtrack for all of life's freakier moments. Best known for the erection-on-the-dance-floor number, "Too Close," from their debut, Rated Next, T-Low, R.L., and Tweety create some ultra-nasty moments on tracks like "Jerk," a three-man salute to masturbation, "Shorty" ("I met her at a naughty show / I'm thinking about fellatio"), and "Let's Make a Movie" ("I'm a superstar / With super sperm"). What saves the album from descending into a testosterone-fueled trash heap, however, is the guys' wicked penchant for humor. It sounds like they're snickering over their own impure ways as much as the rest of us are. Who else in R&B is crooning about getting it on on their own? --Sylvia W. Chan

The negatives are, well, the album reeks of commercialism. It seems formulated and leaves little for creativity. They play their role of bad boys and thus the use of explicit lyrics and the inclusion of songs such as "Cybersex," "Beauty queen," and their pretty soon infamous ode to masturbation "Jerk"--not that there's anything wrong with masturbation.
Overall, if you like contemporary R&B like Jagged Edge or Sisqo's latest with its oversexed subject matter and sometimes explicit lyrics, where the beats are good (while the singing is often just adequate), then you'll like this album. If vocals are more important to you, you ought to look for a different album, maybe Kelly Price's latest, or if you never picked it up, Brian McKnight's or Donell Jones' latest.
