A tepid third effort from the previously unstoppable Soul II Soul posse. It's not entirely clear what happened with the group's efforts to result in such a lackluster release, but my best guess is that the departure of Nellee Hooper was largely responsible. Where the first two albums were such fertile mixtures of genres and styles, this one feels basically homogenized and disinfected. There's just not much bite here, nor groove. That said, there's nothing truly wrong with it—it's more that there's just not much of an edge to it. I've listened to it a few times over the years, thinking perhaps I missed something the first time (and second time, third time, fourth time...) around, but there isn't. It's wholly unremarkable. By the time I've finished listening to it, I can barely recall melodies, choruses, beats, basslines. This is in stark contrast to my connection with the first two albums: there are parts of those releases that absolutely haunt my mind's ear, popping up in a welcome fashion at odd times. While I like much of what Nellee went on to do post-SIIS, I do wish he'd stuck with them long enough to give us at least one more album of that beautiful Africa Center stew that made "Club Classics Volume One" and "1990: A New Decade" so deeply, surprisingly delicious.
