AllMusic Review by

Producer, songwriter, and singer George Kerr hit with "3 Minutes 2 Hey Girl" on All Platinum Records, and hoped for a second blessing with "2 Minutes 2 Me and Mrs. Jones." The minutes in the titles relate to the laid-back raps Kerr tacks on the beginning, but a rap wasn't nearly enough to make this below-C-level update of Billy Paul's classic happen. A remake of Heatwave's "Always & Forever" exposes Kerr's light tenor. A stronger voice would have sold Billy Terrell's "All That I'm Living For," a floating ballad with a lilting melody that Kerr sings with disinterest. He tries harder on "I Wanna Thank You," a decent cut. "Love, Love, Love" is an adventuresome, tempo-changing cutie, and the best track on Harbor Light; Kerr displays a terse falsetto toward the fade, a voice he should use more. An uncredited female swaps leads with Kerr on "All Together." Major Harris' "Love Won't Let Me Wait" is weak; the original or Luther Vandross' adaptation puts Kerr's to shame. Ironically, other than the rap he stuck on "Me and Mrs. Jones," Kerr didn't write any of the songs.
