CD Reviews

Great!!! R-Kelly, really messed up w/the split up of the gro
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great CD.......In my book it is #5 star CD .....It seems unfair that R-Kelly got all the credit when he first started out and then just dumped the group that made him a superstar. P.A. is great, but needed more 'promotion' to show the 'world' where R-Kelly came from!!!"
Very talented group!!!!

"When I first listen to All Work/No Play I was amazed. The beats were tha bomb. And all of the songs on the CD was very interesting and it got my attention instantly. The music made you listen to the words and not just focus on the beats. I listen to the CD everyday or whenever I have the time."

"Public Announcement is the group that played the background for R. Kelly's debut and this is their first coming titled All Work, No Play. It's hard to seperate the fact that they are a group all their own, but after listening to their debut it sounds as if R. Kelly is still present in "Body Bumpin' (Yippie-Yi-Yo)" and "Turn The Hands" just for starters. "It's About Time" has the same one, two kick arrangements but has a fuller, soulful chorus involved. Public Announcement is lead by writer Felony Davis and mostly produced by member Earl Robinson as they take control with many subjects and angles to make this release complete. As sexy and heartfelt as some of the titles are the title track gives an example of their talents. The release hit a high note with the "Body Bumpin' (Yippie-Yi-Yo) - R&B Remix" featuring Mingo Valentino and "Alone" for a more up tempo selection worth checking out. "Homey", a personal favoriate, that resembles a Isley Brothers tune with its guitar solo is what places this album in the elite of great albums. You couldn't have a Chicago release without a stepping song as "Y To The Yippie (Step On)" released before R. Kelly made it popular! P.A. also pays their respects to classic r&b with the remake to "Straight From The Heart". All Work, No Play has everything including desert for a full course meal."
