Album Review

X is the Roman numeral for ten, and this late-2000 release is titled X because it marks Cedric "K-Ci" Hailey and Joel "JoJo" Hailey's tenth anniversary in the recording business — first as one half of the trio Jodeci, then as the duo K-Ci & JoJo. X, the duo's third album, isn't a radical departure from its two previous albums; like 1997's Love Always and 1999's double-platinum It's Real, this CD emphasizes romantic material and combines a high-tech urban contemporary production style with an appreciation of classic soul. K-Ci & Jo-Jo were never a carbon copy of Jodeci, and X won't be mistaken for Diary of a Mad Band.

X isn't a masterpiece, but unlike all of the urban artists who have nothing more than image and attitude going for them, the Hailey siblings bring some genuine talent to this generally pleasant, if predictable, CD.

When they met the DeGrate brothers, Dalvin and DeVante Swing, they decided to switch to secular music and formed Jodeci.
