In a spoken interlude midway through their debut album, teen R&B trio Blaque protest comparison to TLC. Never mind that everything from attitude to production on Blaque owes a lot to that zillion-selling act and that the group is a collective protégé of TLC's Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes. Not that there's anything wrong with that; in fact, while hardly earthshaking, the disc is a stylish entry in 1999's soul stakes. Blaque's material isn't always top-drawer, but several cuts make real marks, particularly the single "808" and the '60s-retro-chorused "I Do." --Rickey Wright

"When i 1st heard "808" i was really interested in Blaque so when their album was released i got it straight away! Not all the songs are for some people's appetite but this album is a blend of pop and r'n'b - which is a good blend! (well, i think so!) TRACKS1) Blaque Ivory intro - doesn't last long, maybe trying 2 copy TLC'S "Fanmail" beginning.2) Roll with me - quite a good start, a real "pump up the volume tune".3) I do - Great track to dance to, fab chorus. one of my fave's!Good rapping from member Brandi.4) Leny - maybe......skip this song, a bit depressing if u ask me..........5) Rainbow drive - really nice summer song, gives u a lift on a bad day!6) 808 - Complete r'n'b tune, written by R.Kelly (thats when u know its gonna be good!)Good rap by member Brandi. Another fave of mine.7) Time after time - a cover of Cyndie Lauper's, as they say originals r best but this is a good cover.8) Bring it all to me - Another fave of mine, a really good track, real r'n'b featuring JC from N'sync who gives it a bit of pop.9) Mind of a king - I like this, its a bit weird at first and the chorus is 2 but give it a listen, the words r crafted 2gether very well. Not very dancy but u can always tap ur foot 2 it...........10) Don't go looking for love - written by Mariah Carey, should have been sung by Mariah Carey!Lead singer Shamari hits a few dodgy high notes here......11) Release me - the music in the background of this reminds me of THE EXORCIST theme (!)good thing, bad thing....dunno also this has lots of heavy breathing and talking in it. Give it a listen. might make u laugh!12) Right next to me - ok song, maybe skip this!13)Stay by your side - not a bad love song, worth listening to!14) When the last teardrops fall - really, really good love song. Good song to finish off the album!Good album, could be better but maybe their 2nd can overcome the "TLC" copying!"
Great CD...this group has much talent

"this is a very good CD. I recommend buying it, it is worth the $$, and you'll be glad you bought it. I am giving it 5 stars because each song is great in different ways. It is great to know that Left-Eye of TLC is thier manager, it shows that they will be successful themselves. And I love that duet they do with N Sync, "Bring It All To Me". That's one of the best songs by them. So buy it if you havent already!"
