Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA
BOYZ II MEN
Producer(s): Randy Jackson
Genre: R&B
Label: Decca
Responsible for bestowing incredible harmony upon early-'90s R&B, Boyz II Men always sounded like they were straight outta Motown. So it's only fitting that the quartet would cover classics from their Motown-era predecessors. Here, there are goodies like the Temptations' "Just My Imagination," Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me" and the Miracles' "Tracks of My Tears." While the majority of the cuts expertly merge the group's melodic vocals, the aggressive chants of Edwin Starr's "War" are unbefitting an act known for silky ballads. Staying true to the original versions of songs, the compilation offers little if any innovation, but that barely matters. If Boyz II Men were to time-warp back to the '60s, with the right matching attire and nifty two-steps, they'd blend right in.—Clover G. Hope
