Not much to it
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Al B. Sure's sophmore album did not live up expectations put forth after his first album. I hate to give anything by Al B. Sure a low rating, but this isn't a great album, and he proved in his first CD that he has the ability to do much better. I was also disspointed that the mix of "Misunderstanding" that I heard on the radio was not what was on this CD. This happens a lot these days, and it was the only reason I bought "Private Times & the Whole 9". Al B. Sure's rendition of "Hotel California" is worth a listen. If you are already a fan of Al B. Sure, you will appreciate it, however those unfamiliar with his style might be turned off."
The Second Time's The Charm

"Well actually it really goes "the third time's the charm", but since I ain't really feeling Al's third album I got to give it up for "Private Times". I really liked this album. It's good, IMO it's better than "In Effect Mode". Don't get me wrong I really like that cd, but I like this one better. (Uh oh, I know someone is going to disagree with me. Oh well.) Anyway my favortie song is "Hotel California". It's a tight song. I also like "I Want To Know". This is a great buy for old Al B Sure fans as well as new ones (like me). pz

"It's too bad that fame is indeed fleeting in the pop music world. Too many artists score big with their first release and fade into obscurity by their second or, if they're lucky, third album.Al B. Sure! is one of those that star only shone brightly for a short period. He hit the music world in a big way with his freshman album from 1988 "In Effect Mode" which had a monster smash with "Nite and Day", a New Jack swing tune that seemed to stay on the radio forever. Because of the overwhelming success of his first-time out, the artist returned two years later with the mammoth-in-length "Private Nine".Exploring some of the same themes as in the first one, Al's voice was never more seductive and his lyrics were no less alluring. He even tried his had at remaking a classic in his soulful reworking of The Eagle's "Hotel California", the first cut and the obvious highlight of the entire release.While this is not a superior recording, it does stand as a reminder of that transitional R & B period between what music was and what it IS today."
