MID 90's SOUL/R&B...

"Okay - to get the real flavor of mid-90's soul R&B, along with Shai's "If I Ever Fall In Love" and SWV's "It's About Time", you must get Silk's "Lose Control". Although the album is short, it isn't short on quality jams. This is the best album Silk recorded (sorry fellas); and I'll lay out the best tracks:"Freak Me" - this song will take you back if you remember it (guaranteed) and still sounds amazingly fresh now, probably because of the way Keith Sweat blessed it."Girl U For Me" - great. Angelic actually, and well sung."Lose Control" - this was beautiful piano ballad that was never a single, but a pleasant surprise for record buyers in 1993."Happy Days" - their first single; didn't do that well, but the beat is funky. I love this one.The rest of the album is great. Their are only two filler tracks in my opinion, but whatever...now y'all got me reminiscing! But seriously, in the mid 90's (along with trendsetters Jodeci, Boys II Men and TLC) we had a rich dearth of R&B hitmakers, and Silk was definitely near the top of that list."
Why you should buy this CD.....

"Looking back at all the CD's that came out in the early 90's, I'd say Silk's "Lose Control" is one of the few that has stood the test of time. The whole CD is worth listening to. Silk is not like H-Town or Jodeci, where you buy the CD for the singles and ignore the rest of the CD, which is essentially filler. Also, Silk's style is true to their name: their soul is smooth, not whiny, like the direction a lot of New Jack groups took. My personal favorites are "Happy Days", "Girl U for Me", "Freak Me", which is sensual without being tasteless, and "Lose Control"."

"Silk had an indescribable knack for creating baby making jams. They just did it better than most people coming out at the time and that made them stand out. The title track Lose Control epitomizes this group. Slow, sensual, and romantic type music. They had other hits (Freak Me and It Hat To Be You) and albums but this is the main release that you will need from them as it is their best and contains their best songs. Great 90's R&B!"
