Admittedly, the title of Smooth Grooves: Wedding Songs might make most cynics and record collectors a little skeptical, but they're not the target audience for this disc. Fans of romantic quiet storm and urban soul are the disc's intended audience, and they should find this collection of 12 love songs, all with a loose wedding theme, quite engaging. All of the 12 tracks -- including such hits as the Four Tops' "I Believe In You and Me," DeBarge's "All This Love," Peaches & Herb's "I Pledge My Love," Kool & the Gang's "Cherish," Larry Graham's "When We Get Married" and Klymaxx's "I'd Still Say Yes" -- are quite strong, and the end result is a romantic, enchanting collection that would not be embarrassing to play at a wedding.
