Omar Chandler asserts his vocal finesse with great emotion on this collection of R&B/hip-hop-flavored soul and funk tunes. This is a far superior album to his self-titled debut for Uptown/MCA. Rodney Jerkins, known for his work with Mary J. Blige and Brandy, can be heard at his rawest and most innovative on tracks "I Know What's on Your Mind" and "Let's Settle Down." "Guess Who's Back" features the unmistakable sound of super-producer Teddy Riley, with whom Chandler collaborated after a longtime friendship. The album only spawned the one single release, "Buckwild," produced by Roosevelt "Bink-Dog" Harell and featuring a rap by Rob Base (of "It Takes Two" fame).
