AllMusic Review by

Jodeci juggle new jack swing and vintage soul on their second album and wind up with a jarring, mismatched release. The disc's love songs, particularly "Cry for You," "What About Us," and "My Heart Belongs to U," are tender, passionately sung, and sincere expressions of romance and love. But they diminish these with a string of innuendo-laden come-on numbers, complete with explicit language, tired raps and samples, and the kind of sentiments and appeals better suited to a Penthouse Forum entry than an album.
