AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Smooth Grooves: After Hours Cool Down spans 12 tracks, all quiet storm and urban soul hits from the '80s. The thing that makes this different from other smooth, romantic collections of this nature is that all the big hits -- "You're Not My Kind of Girl," "Keep on Movin'," "Human," "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" -- are presented in alternate, extended remixes. While these aren't the versions heard on the radio -- which means that those listeners that want just the single edits shouldn't turn here -- they're all good versions of good songs, and the extended versions help sustain the mood for a romantic evening.
