AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack to the 1991 NBC-TV Saturday morning kids show, the Guys Next Door is squarely aimed at the prepubscent set. The actor/singer quintet, assembled by NBC-TV Productions and music vet Charles Koppelman, could be called the '90s version of the Monkees, though GND never attained anything near the success of that mid-'60s TV-created band. Still, though, the group enjoys a following and their sole release Guys Next Door is a nice snapshot of late-'80s/early-'90s pop. Aimed at the kiddies, the music has an aggressive edgy sound -- the hard hip-hop beats without the overt un-parent friendly messages heard in other similiarly sounding music. The best track is the catchy "I Was Made For You."
