There's no doubt that the title's accurate, though Soulful Ballads scrimps a bit on the length of the disc and quantity of the liner notes. For a ten-track compilation, the selections are mostly inspired: Smokey Robinson ("Cruisin'"), the Temptations ("Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)"), the Commodores ("Still"), and L.T.D. ("We Both Deserve Each Other's Love"). A few clunkers from Shai and Switch also decrease the worth of this budget collection.
