    Personally, I can't point to too many R&B albums of the 1990s that had the highest of high points as this landmark. Furthermore, I can't fathom why this album or its mighty creators are criminally undervalued as the precursors of a subgenre that would later be coined and marketed as "neo-soul" only two years later. Hell, even Meshell Ndegeocello, who would drop her game-changing debut, Plantation Lullabies only five months after this, doesn't get her props either. As the story goes, this first family from Oakland rode high from the release of their second album, 1990's The Revival, which not only restarted their career, but gave them their first taste of artistic Independence and crossover appeal. But, they craved more artistic credibility. They managed to jump hastily from studio to studio throughout California, and then mysteriously skirted to the tropics of Trinidad and Tobago to lay this down. Eschewing their early experiments with new jack swing ("and you can new jack swing on my nuts"), they fully realized their own Oakland funk vision, paid respectful homage to their heroes from the bygone era they grew up in, and brought it all to a new era. The rest is history.

    This 2017 UMG/Respect the Classics reissue is solid. Definitely cut from a high-quality digital source. Some surface crackle here and there, but very dynamic. No complaints.
