Record Company's Need To "Stop Frontin"
retro_styled_crooner | Tustin, CA USA | 09/08/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Real Seduction was just one of the many urban groups that failed in 93/94 due to lack of promotion (Atlantic Records). Real Seduction's debut, It's Real, may have slipped through the cracks and didn't sell, but this obscure male vocal quartet probably would have had a great impact on the mid-90s fall of new jack swing era, thats if they were promoted. Although not fantastic, It's Real is a generally decent example of a neo-soul approach to urban contemporary. Tracks like "Stop Frontin'" and " Every Time I See You" have one foot in 1990s urban contemporary and hip-hop and the other in classic soul; obviously, the four members of the Real Seduction were well aware of what the O'Jays, the Dramatics, and other male vocal groups contributed to R&B back in the 1960s and 1970s. The Real Seduction realized that being affected by the Temptations doesn't mean that you have to ignore Aaron Hall, Jodeci, Boyz II Men, Keith Sweat, or LeVert. Unfortunately, the Real Seduction turned out to be one-album wonders; the group was dropped by Atlantic and never provided a second album. It's Real is a generally likable, if slightly inconsistent, release that should have done better."

"This is an album with some very good tunes on it. The harmonies sound amazing they sound better than boys to men on some of the songs. These guys truly have style like the claim on the intro to the album. There are 3 killer tunes on this album its a must have for any lover of vocal group rnb. I give the album 4 but like I said there is at least 3 must have tunes."
