Our Review

Boyz II Men played it smart on their second album, giving their fans more of the vocal magic captured on their enormously-successful first release. II (1994) earned the quartet a series of high-charting singles, including the back-to-back Number One ballads “I’ll Make Love To You” and “On Bended Knee.” It’s easy to see why these tunes became huge hits — the Boyz infuse them with wholesome seductiveness that’s both earthy and impossibly romantic. Even better is “Water Runs Dry,” matching the quartet’s intricate (yet never excessive) harmonies with classically-accented strings. As on their debut album, they also get playful with new jack swing-y things like “Jezebel” and “All Around The World.” With production input by such notables as Babyface and Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis, II allows the old school essence of the group to shine with a minimum of extraneous elements. In fact, one of the album’s standout tracks is a street corner-style rendition of the Beatles’ “Yesterday,” a tune seemingly immune to fresh interpretation, but the group tackles the song as if it were a newly-composed piece, bringing out its elegant heartbreak. Putting taste above trendiness, the Boyz once again proved the appeal of their classy, caressing sound with II.

Customer Reviews

BEFORE R&B WENT BAD…THERE WAS THIS (5 stars)

Simply an amazing vocal album. This albums still gets to me, and I don't even like R&B anymore. These days it's just turned skank hip-hop and is a complete waste of time…no talent. But "II" with out a doubt has some of the greatest songs ever made all on this album. "Thank You," "On Bended Knee," "Water Runs Dry"…wow. Amazing. It's too bad there isn't more good soul music like this anymore.


Magnificent (5 stars)

If your a fan of pure singing, this is the album for you. These fellows trully have the best voices in the music buisness. All others are imitations. They don't even need music, just sing accapella.


Simply Amazing (5 stars)

I think Boyz II Men is one of the best R&B bands ever and this album just proves that – Every song is amazing. I cant get enough


Biography

Formed: 1988 in Philadelphia, PA
Genre: R&B/Soul
Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

According to no less an authority than the RIAA, Boyz II Men are the most commercially successful R&B group of all time. They've sold ludicrous numbers of records and been involved in three of the longest-running number one pop singles in history, and they've done it as a unit of equals. In fact, their four-part harmonies blend so smoothly that most of the general public would be hard-pressed to name any of the group's individual members. And that's no reflection on their skill as singers; Boyz…
