"Now he's done it. Posing like a rapper,he's released an album outside of his roots. Dance/house music. What happened to those house and dance beats of 'SEXAPPEAL'? Because he has traded it for hip-hop beats (he even has a wack rapper rhyming on a couple of tunes and he attempts to rap himself on a few tracks). Was this album meant to stink? RCA Records didn't think so.
"Stand" and "M.L.K." has Georgio getting political about African-American pastime telling us to raise up on "Stand",praise to a Civil Rights legend in "M.L.K." both are actually eye openers to this CD. Without those tunes,this would be considered a VERNON REID solo album (read my review).
Other than the hip-hop transformation he still attempting ballads like his hit "I Don't Want 2 Be Alone" from his self-titled album but they are not uplifting the CD. The damage is done. Better cop 'SEXAPPEAL'. He is really on PRINCE's tip here."
