An Overlooked Gem!

"Big Bub's solo debut is one of the most underrated urban releases of 1992. At a time when the dominance of new jack swing started to escape the urban contemporary scene, Big Bub's incorporation of the outdated genre at its departure may have proven to be its biggest fallacy. Even with all of its deficiencies, Big Bub carefully balances the outdated genre with a smooth set of romantic tunes, which many consider to be the saving grace of the album. The highlights include the seductive "Simon Sez", the soothing "Tellin' Me Stories", and the romantic "Work It Out". Other noteworthy tracks are the funky "I Don't Mind", and "24/7". Commercially, the album bombed, mainly for an insignifcant lead single. Big Bub would correct this problem with his second time around and receive favorable reviews. However, this album is not needless filler. There is enough memorable tracks to merit a purchase. Therefore, this album is for new jack and smooth soul listeners."
