EDITORS’ NOTES

In the hands of superproducers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, New Edition graduated from boy band to serious players on their fifth album. Heart Break’s blend of new jack swing smoothness, hip-hop swagger, and soaring harmonies peaks on tracks like the feisty “If It Isn’t Love” and the breezily funky “N.E. Heart Break." The sparkling “Can You Stand the Rain” showcases new member Johnny Gill’s husky roar, contrasting it with Ricky Bell’s searching croon and Ralph Tresvant’s silky tenor.
