AllMusic Review by

Closer to contemporary R&B than to true hip-hop, REMEMBER ME? employs slow to mid-tempo beats and EZ-groove bass and keyboard textures to back up Domino's fluent rhymes. There's little chance of hearing most of these tracks on the local R&B station, though, since Domino's lyrics are primarily, and explicitly, about adventures of the sensual variety. Proclamations of carnal knowledge, description of various bedroom athletics and lyrics about warm Jello color songs like "Cocoa Tang," "69" and "Closer Than Friends."

Domino's choice of nasty subject matter seems appropriate to his heavy-lidded, bumpin' grooves and his style, while not always original, achieves a few moments of genuine flow. Guest vocalists Teena Marie, Surface and the unidentified female rapper on "Reality" (who kicks the most impressive style on the album), do their bit to liven up the mix, making REMEMBER ME? a melange of spicy vocals and cool, silky tracks that listeners can get down to in more ways than one.
