AllMusic Review by

After the success of "Disco Nights" taken from their debut album, GQ's follow-up album, Two, led off with another upbeat number, "Standing Ovation." Not as groovin' as its predecessor, it nonetheless managed to stand in at number 12 after 15 weeks on the Billboard R&B charts. The quartet followed with a remake of a song that Billy Stewart made popular among R&B lovers, "Sitting in the Park." The patient rhythms of the track provide a humble foundation for Emmanuel Rahiem LeBlanc to display his appealing vocals. Along with these two songs, another standout track is "Don't Stop This Feeling." With a combination of R&B and smooth jazz, this composition maintains a steady rhythm seasoned with LeBlanc's placid articulation of each lyric and improvising guitar solo. These tracks, plus the rest of the solid numbers that round out the album, made it a fine second album from one of disco's finest.
