AllMusic Review by

It's safe to say that the vast majority of R&B fans have never heard of Or-n-More, an obscure urban contemporary/dance duo that recorded for EMI in the early 1990s. But the little-known group, which consisted of female singer Orfeh and producer/songwriter Mike More, managed to attract some well-known session players for this self-titled debut album. Some of the session's very in-demand participants include trumpeter Jerry Hey, drummer Jeff Porcaro, and the ubiquitous guitarist Paul Jackson, Jr. On "The Right One," none other than the O'Jays (who were labelmates of Or-n-More at EMI) provide background vocals. But having all of them on board doesn't erase the fact that all of the songs on this CD are routine. While Orfeh is a competent singer, songs like "Every Other Day," "I Need Someone to Talk To" and "Fool Hearted" aren't the least bit memorable or interesting. Orfeh seems to be going for a Taylor Dayne-ish type of appeal, but she doesn't have any worthwhile songs to back herself up. This album is as weak as it is forgettable.
