"For all early hip hop/ r&b fans, this is a classic. The Force MD's were a unique blend of old school harmonizing and the then growing phenomena of hip-hop. This album is a CLASSIC! It's a feel good sound with nice instumentation that rides along well with the Force MD's melodies. Of course the most noticeable song is the Jimmy Jam- Terry Lewis produced "Tender Love" which stands as one of the most beautiful ballads of all time. Also, "One Plus One" which opens the album, sets a nice tone with bouncy guitar riffs and 'school boy charm' singing and lyrics. Another geat song is " Here I Go Again", which again showcases the Force MD's talent for slow jams. A pleasant surprise and funny as all get out is the "Force MD's Meet the Fat Boys". This was around the time the Fat Boys were just getting started and both of the groups talents meshed well! Overall, this album is a must have for those of you who appreciates the early days of modern r&b and hip hop."
