AllMusic Review by

Working with a wide array of producers -- including Chris Stokes, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and Brion James -- Smooth returned to recording in 1998 with Reality. Unlike her first two records, Reality tempers Smooth's hip-hop influences with urban soul, and the result is a seductive record that's equally funky and stylish. While the songwriting isn't always compelling, the producers give Smooth a rich instrumental backdrop that allows her to emphasize her charisma, and the result is her best record to date.
