"A meeting of the young and the old as contemporary artists take their spins on songs made famous by others. There is obviously a great deal of respect for the original versions here; the renditions featured here are almost reverential in their execution. Highlights include Brownstone's reworking of The Emotions' classic "Don't Ask My Neighbors," "A Song for You" by Gerald Levert," Mary J. Blige's take on Natalie Cole's "Our Love," and a remarkable Spanish cut "Lo Prometido Es Deuda" by Tito Nieves."Oldsters" B.B.King ("The Thrill is Gone"), Teena Marie ("Wishing on a Star"), and Chaka Khan ("Sweet Thing") are also on hand to let the "youngsters" know that they still have the "skills."A surprisingly good performance is done by series star Michael DeLorenzo on "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight." It reminds the listener that the actor did have a musical career as one of the principal performers in the "Fame" movie and television show of the 1980's."

"=As a fan of the show, I was happy to see the album released, but I was also a little disappointed not to see some of the other stellar performances from the TV show (e.g. George Benson, Jon B., Keith Sweat, Johnny Gill, etc,), nevertheless the album is incredible. It is a hard thing to remake oldschool songs, yet the beauty of NYUndecover is the fact that many of the old songs were performed by the original artists themselves, such as B.B. King, Chaka Khan, and Teena Marie. Yet, when you add the flavor of new school artists, K-Ci and Jo Jo, 112, the always underrated Barrio Boyz, then it provides for an incredible musical experince. This show, when it aired on FOX was amazing because it integratd Black & Latino culture, music, style, and action all into a one hour cop show, it is truly missed but I still enjoy re-runs on USA. If you don't have this CD, you are missing out."
I had the best time at Natalie's!

"This is a great cd to kick back and listen to. Teena's cover of "Wishing on a Star" was the reason I bought this cd(I've been looking for it since the day after the episode aired! ) but I enjoyed Chaka, Blacksteet, and even Michael Delorenzo(I didn't know he could sing! ) I have only one gripe(and the reason it didn't get 5 stars) where is Johny Gill's cover of "You Are My Sunshine"?"
