"I started keeping this CD in my bedroom, away from the rest of my collection because people keep trying to take it home with them. They all remember this burner! The entire CD is hot enough to melt the polar ice caps! Chris had an amazing debut. I still remember seeing him on tour with Stephanie Mills in the early 90's! At show, he threw his wash cloth at me and I caught it! Ha! Ha! I didn't mind the sweat at all! Talk about a smoking show! Anyway, I have to keep him under lock and key and checking the prices here, I see why! I got lucky and found the CD at a warehouse for $5.99 about 5 years ago and what a bargain it was... Solid, solid..complete effort!"
I still like this album!

"Christopher Williams was underrated when he started out with his first album. Much of the attention was more toward Bobby Brown, Keith Sweat and Al B Sure!, but Chris made a solid debut, with songs like Promises Promises, Sexy Sex, his superb remake of Always and Forever, and the smooth ballads that dominate the second half. The music was very well done for an R&B release. Though his second album got pushed back to 1992, he later faded a bit. But I still remember this debut a lot. I've noticed that he's been doing plays as of late, so he's still out there 15 years later, entertaining folks!"

"Why Christopher Williams is not more well known than he is is a complete mystery. Not only does he have a great voice and undeniably romantic sentiment, he also has a plethora of killer connections (he's a nephew of legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, a cousin of Al B. Sure!, and he dated Halle Berry). This debut album proudly proclaims that "this is the year of Christopher Williams" and it was hardly overstating itself. All songs are good or great, particularly "Promises, Promises.""
