Recorded in 1995, the album may feature only one original Temptation (Otis Williams) as Melvin Franklin had recently departed, but its nevertheless a sterling example of the power of modern soul music. Most of the songs featured here hail from the Great American Songbook. This wasn't the first time the group had tackled standards, but the contemporary arrangements the tunes receive here are as startling as they are successful. It's a safe bet that Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne never would have imagined their classic "Time After Time" beginning with the spoken exhortation "drop the groove," but drop it they do, with the considerable assistance of studio mastermind Isaias Gamboa. The group's soulful harmonies and obvious emotional committment to the material should be studied by younger bands intent on breaking into the R&B game. Listen and learn, kids.
