"For anyone that likes current old fashioned r&b, this is the CD for you. I first heard about Christion, when I saw their first video "Full Of Smoke" on BET. I later found out that this was the first r&b group that Jay Z was going to have on Roc A Fella records. As soon as the CD came out I bought it because I loved "Full Of Smoke". This CD has something for everyone. They have old school tales of hustlin' and pimpin' and tight midtempo and slow songs about love and relationships. It reminds me of the "Shaft (2000) soundtrack", because all of the songs, although they are new, have a 70s appeal to it. The 2nd single, "Bring Back Your Love" is also an example of that. This is one of the best songs on the CD. After beaking up with a girlfriend or friend, Christion leaves a song as a phone message to the woman explaining how much he misses her and how he wishes they were still together. This is an excellent song. Other highlights are "Midnight X Ta C" which uses a sample from The Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere", "Face Like Yours", "Anything Goes" and the 3rd single, a remake to the Rose Royce classic " I Wanna Get Next To You". Anyone that likes new music with an old scool appeal this is the CD for you. It may even bring back some good memories from the past."

"That The "Roc" had such a duo up their sleeve! This CD is the ultimate music fest! It's laid back, but not enough to put you to sleep. It thumps but not loudly. The lyrics are serious, the beats are thorough and the slow songs are divine ("Soon" is the bomb). There is just something about this CD that makes me feel like taking a long drive on winding roads of trees and hills in a convertible while a warm breeze blows through my hair!
These guys really put it down on this CD...and it is amazing to me that so many slept on them. It's been over 5 years and I still play this CD alot. When I haven't listened to it in a minute, it seems to call for me! I relax in the hot tub to it, sit by the fireplace in winter and listen to it, and even cook dinner and clean to it! People wanna know...who is that you're listening to..when I tell them they always say..Never Heard of Them...but when I talk about the video..then they say "oh yeah, I remember seeing them," I didn't know they were that nice! So listen up people, there's enough here for everyone to sink their teeth into..."Pull It" is a serious jam packed with a message... "Full Of Smoke" is just suave..and mellow at the same time. Their remake of "I Wanna Get Next to You" is done extremely well! And I like the way they break up the CD by chapters. Very unique and well done! Where are they now though? I hope this won't be their last project."

""Ghetto Cyrano" is one of the best R&B cds that I own. Christion is comprised of two brothers who seem as though they were born with an 'old soul'. "Ghetto Cyrano" reminds me of Marvin Gaye with a little bit of The Time. This is a wonderful cd. "Bring Back Your Love", "Midnight Xtacy", "Full Of Smoke", and their remake of "I Wanna Get Next You" are my favorite songs on the cd. Jay-Z needs to get this brothers back out here!! Quick note: For those who don't know, Christion is signed to Jay-Z's Roc-a-Fella Records. It's been four years already....and I still listen to this cd. I HIGHLY recommend this it."
