"Ex-Girlfriend had the benefit of working with FULL FORCE (LISA LISA AND CULT JAM, CHERYL "PEPSII" RILEY) on their debut. After supplying luscious background vocals for Jasmine Guy on her debut single "Try me" the group dropped their 1st release "X MARKS THE SPOT".The single "Why can't you come home?" was a hit. Another single "YOU" hit the top 40. This cd mixes it up pretty good with up-tempo dance and r&b cuts. "What i would do to you" and "Fellas in the area" are all prime early 90's r&b, with the latter showing the new york natives spitting rhymes on the mic about their fellas of choice. The ballads show their harmonies to be in good form. "With all my heart" is a song of teenage angst about the amount of love a girl has for her boyfriend. Then "I love my man" is from the woman's point of view. Lead singer Stacey tears into this song and has a powerful voice with alot of range. She is similar to an adult STACEY LATTISAW (they even have the same name...lol). This is a good piece of 90's girl group r&b. If you can find it...Buy it!"
Still In Love

"Papa-san (my father) bought me the cassette recording of Ex-Girlfriend's "X Marks The Spot" when I was still in middle school. I loved it then, and I'm still in love with it now. Though I'm a young adult *cough*, I still enjoy listening to these songs. Their harmonies were beautiful, and I can't (for the love of chocolate) understand why they're no longer around.
Though some may think of it as childish, I believe it has a bit of quirkiness as well. Some ballads, some dance tunes. All enhance their vocals and range. With such selections as "You (You're The One For Me)", and "Why Can't You Come Home" that made it to the charts and "With All My Heart", "I Found That Guy", and "I Love My Man" that never made it to the charts, you can't possibly go wrong with this CD!!
I haven't purchased the CD... but I still have my cassette, and I'm so thankful that this didn't get lost in the process of growing up, going off to college, and moving back home. Yes, I listened to it as a child, but even as a woman, it still speaks volumes. This is one timeless treasure that I plan on keeping with me for the rest of my life."
I love this albulm
