Good first album for him; several funk-driven songs here!

"I didn't hear this album until the mid-90s. I had been more onto Don't Be Cruel and the albums after it. But this album was a good first effort for Bobby Brown. I still like Girlfriend. But the rest of the album had some funky numbers. The Larry Blackmon songs for Bobby are heavy on the funk, a little of a Cameo sound added to Bobby's post New Edition style. There were some hints of the heavy funk that Bobby would give to Cruel two years later. Brown sounds more free form here than the limited appeal that he had in his former group."
A nice try for Bobby's first CD

"B.Brown's first CD wasn't anything special. It was rushed and only had two singles Girlfriend and Girl Next Door. If this album had more ballads maybe it would have been better."
