AllMusic Review by

The second volume of R&B Slowjamz, released by Universal for the European market, goes back a bit farther than the first volume. The first volume dipped into the '90s, but this one reaches back to the early '80s for Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" and the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets" -- both of which are undeniable classics. There's plenty of '90s material, led by Soul 4 Real ("Candy Rain"), Ginuwine ("Pony"), and Ralph Tresvant ("Sensitivity"). When it was released, in February 2013, the set was remarkably up to date with the then-current likes of Rihanna's "Diamonds," Miguel's "Adorn," and Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You" all present. This is another cheap way to obtain a big chunk of legitimate hits.
