"Brrr, it's chilly in here. The Dramatic's signature vocal arrangements ("What You See Is What You Get", "In The Rain"), are missing in this 1990 break-beat galore album, replaced by a generic, indifferent collection of songs that indeed are stone cold. Twenty years after their biggest hits, The Dramatics sound like only producer's property willing to agree to the typical light jazz, rhythm and blues style of the era. No outstanding tracks, no defining moments, the horns are the best thing about it, and they seem to want to wail over many songs in an attempt to hijack this misguided production into jazz."
A fine contemporary R&B album from The Dramatics.

"Although plagued by many of the excesses which typified most post-1986 R&B, I found the "Stone Cold" CD quite satisfying--especially when compared to the "music" being put out by most major labels at the time. "Let's Make Love 4-ever" is a great tune that shows how hard The Dramatics tried to keep their sound contemporary. Not as powerful as their classic Stax releases but still a nice CD that could have done better."
