||Smooth Is the Way CD (1993) |
Around The Way albums Some decent, smartly produced urban contemporary, hip-hop, and light R&B material, sung with conviction if not distinction. This isn't particularly outstanding, but it's not awful, and the harmonies, arrangements, and production make the uptempo songs palatable and the slower ones tolerable. ~ Ron Wynn
