Wayman Tisdale's second album, In the Zone, suffers from the same problems of his debut Power Forward. Although it is evident that Tisdale has affection for smooth urban R&B and jazz fusion, he has just enough skills and instinct to make his music pleasant, but not enough to make it engaging. As a result, In the Zone never rises beyond background music, and like all background music, it sounds fine while it's on, but nothing sticks around after the record is finished.
