This nine-member R&B band's debut album release for Tabu features some upbeat, dance-oriented numbers. The energetic, soulful vocals of Belita Woods stand supreme. The two single releases were the socially uplifting "Wake Up and Be Somebody" and the incessantly groovin' "Lovin' Is Really My Game." The former has some Latin undertones on top of atypical R&B rhythms, and the latter is more disco-seasoned. The vocal prowess of Woods is admirable as she unleashes the lyric with her urgent vocal appeal. The expedient numbers clipped the R&B charts at number 48 and number 14, respectively. The irony of this project is that the most popular song on it was never released. "This Must Be Heaven" is a highly sought-after composition, as is this album. Set in a romantic, utopian mood, the ballad gracefully builds to a jovial climax. This song is a quiet storm classic.
