Sole remaining original Temptation Otis Williams supplies the most memorable moments on the group's 57th album, Ear-Resistible. Unfortunately, the baritone stays in the background except for a bit of preaching on "One Love One World" and a call to party on, you guessed it, "Party." Ear-Resistible may appeal to hardcore Tempts fans; 1998's Phoenix Rising went platinum. But little or none of the group's greatness is on display on this disc's long series of uninspired midtempo ballads. It may be unfair to measure the new "Elevator Eyes" and "Kiss Me Like You Miss Me" to "I Can't Get Next to You" and "My Girl," but the quintet begs such comparisons by continuing under the legendary act's name. --Bob Roget

"The legendary Tempatations has provided us with great music for over 40 years and still going strong over a half dozen or so personel changes but one thing hasnt changed is that smooth, silky harmonzing that still sounds great.. Now with their 57th album ! it just shows the staying power these gentlemen have.. Their new album picks up where their last album Phoenix Rising left off.. In hope of attracting a younger audience to their music they enlist some of the hottest young songwriters and producers on the scene right now with the likes of folks like Joe who wrote and produced the hypnotic first single I'm Here.. Gerald Levert penned two tracks Proven &True one of my favorites on the whole cd and also wrote Selfish Reasons.. Donell Jones co wrote It's Alright To Be Wrong another great track on this album with these young talented gentlemen lending their talent makes this cd great listening .. It would be unfair to compare the new material to such great classic tracks from the past.. But this album should keep long time Tempt fans happy also.. Other noteworthy tracks are as following:Your Love, Kiss Me Like You Miss Me, Got To Get On The Road, Error Of Our Ways.. All these songs are great check this album out you will not be disappointed it just too irresistible not to listen !"
What a follow-up

"Coming from the Number one Temptation fan in the world, I feel free in saying "Kiss me like you miss" is it.......... It should have been released first. All jokes aside this is a great follow-up to Phoenix Rising. "Party" will make you want to do just that.Any Temptation fan will want this for there collection."
A taste of Old School!

"If you are seriously into "old school", track #9 "Proven & True" may, by itself, be worth the CD price. An old school slow jam that reminds us a little of Kendricks & Ruffin. The overall CD is a little uneven...probably trying to cater to the pitiful, fickle crowd that "learned about" the Temps from the TV movie. Still, by today's standards, it's a strong CD worthy of your dollar."
