Still a hot debut today!

"Somehow, the albums from 1988, my high school graduation year, have held up very well and still get some radio airplay! Al B Sure is one of them! Although he had to compete with Keith Sweat and Bobby Brown for R&B male artist chart dominance, his album was a superb effort all throughout! The sexy Nite and Day still sounds fabulous! The new jack sounds of Off on Your Own Girl, which he won a Soul Train Music Award for, still are funky! His remake of Roberta Flack's Killing Me Softly is still fabulous. And songs like Naturally Mine and If I'm Not Your Lover are still nicely done! The high point of this album is the musicianship of Al B. Sure and Kyle West who produced most of the songs. Their construction of the songs and melodies are very masterful. And Teddy Riley produced one song, but nobody noticed it even when his group Guy was a major hit in '88. Sure couldn't match this success on his later albums, but this is a fine debut by him, one of the '80s best R&B albums!"
OOOH THIS MAN IS SO!!!!!!!!!!!!

"MAN,,, I HAD TO SIT DOWN AND TAKE SOME TIME OUT OF MY BUSY DAY AND WRITE A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT "IN EFFECT MODE",,,,,BEING THAT I AM TWENTY YEARS OLD AND I WAS ONLY FOUR YEARS OLD WHEN THIS ALBUM WAS RELEASED,,,,I REMEMBER IT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE SONG "OOH! THIS LOVE IS SO",,, I WAS IN LOVE WITH IT AND STILL AM,,, THIS IS THE MOST UNDER RATED AND OVERLOOKED SONG EVER,,, IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND SEXY,,, I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS ALBUM ,, FROM BEGINNING TO END, IT IS INCREDIBLE... KEEP IN MIND THAT I MAY BE YOUNG ,BUT I KNOW WHAT GREAT MUSIC IS,,, SEE IM NOT INTO RAP. ITS ALL ABOUT THE 80'S AND 70'S R&B MUSIC IN MY CD PLAYER,,, NO OTHER GENRE OF MUSIC CAN TOUCH IT,,,, AND IS IT JUST ME OR DID GOOD QUALITY MUSIC DIE? OLD SCHOOL PLAYAS LIKE MR.SURE ,CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS, NEW EDITION,TROOP, AND GUY AND SO ON AND SO FORTH,, CAN NOT BE TOUCHED BY THESE BUBBLEGUMS WE HAVE OUT NOW!!!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED EVERYONE???????? BUT TO CLOSE THIS OUT ,, "IN EFFECT MODE" IS A CLASSIC MASTERPIECE AND MY FAVORITE TRACKS ARE.....

1. "OOH! THIS LOVE IS SO"--- THIS IS THE MOST SEXY AND DYNAMIC SONG ON THE ALBUM AND ONE OF THE BEST AND SEXIEST SONGS OF ALL TIME... PLEASE LISTEN TO IT AND YOU'LL FALL IN IN LOVE WITH IT LIKE I DID.... {TIMELESS CLASSIC}.

2."NATURALLY MINE"--- THIS IS ALSO ANOTHER GREAT UNDER RATED SONG,,,THAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND WELL WRITTEN. BEAUTIFUL , BEAUTIFUL LOVE SONG ..... {ANOTHER TIMELESS CLASSIC}.

3."NITE AND DAY"--- I LOVE THIS ONE TOO,, THEY PLAYED IT A LITTLE TOO MUCH IN THE LATE 80'S AND THE EARLY 90'S,, BUT IT IS STILL A BEAUTIFUL SONG...

4."OFF ON YOUR OWN (GIRL)"---NICE UPTEMPO TRACK AND LYRICS, I LOVE THE RAP AND EVERY THING ABOUT THIS TRACK....

5."KILLING ME SOFTLY"-- GREAT,,, REMAKE {TIMELESS CLASSIC}



ALL IN ALL, I LOVE THE OTHER SONGS BUT THESE ARE MY JAMS.. ESPECIALLY "OOH THIS LOVE IS SO",,, I CANT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS ONE THOUGH . BUT THIS ALBUM IS A CLASSIC AND AL B. SURE IS SO , SO TALENTED... HE AND THE NEW JACK SWING ERA WILL SURELY BE MISSED.


AL B. SURE IS ONE OF OUR BEST ARTISTS OF THE 80'S ASIDE FROM HIS GOOD LOOKS HE SURE IS TALENTED,, AND CAN SING THE MESS OUT OF "OOH THIS LOVE IS SO" AND "NATURALLY MINE" HE WILL ALWAYS HOLD A PLACE IN OUR HEARTS "MUSICALLY"......

Back to the 90's

"i am a huge fan of al b. sure. he takes me back to my college days and i still had the album! so i wanted to upgrade the album to a cd so that i could burn all his great hits from this album to my ipod.

eventhough in the 90's there were great bands and artists who used keyboards as the instrumental part of their deal, al b. sure was one of the few that was GREAT. such hits as "ooh this love is so.." and "naturally mine" take you back to your youthful days when music was great unlike the music of the current generation.

check it out!"
