Album Review

Crazysexycool was one of those records that defined an era. Few records before it combined hip-hop and classic soul songwriting quite as intoxicatingly or gracefully — the performances and productions were utterly seamless. It would have been difficult to top anyway, but TLC had it doubly bad, since a number of behind-the-scenes problems delayed a sequel for nearly five years. As with any eagerly anticipated record, that follow-up, FanMail, arrived with too many expectations. And initially, it may be disappointing to realize TLC doesn't forge new ground with FanMail, but after a few spins, it settles in that nobody else makes urban soul quite as engaging as this. Not that it was easy to make this record, as the head-spinning list of collaborators indicates. Almost ten producers worked on the record, all trying to replicate the easy, appealing sound of Crazysexycool. And "replicate" is the right word, since there are no new innovations on FanMail, apart from a few lifts from the Timbaland book of tricks. Nevertheless, that may be for the best, since TLC and their army of producers have spent time crafting the songs and productions, turning FanMail into a record that almost reaches the peaks of its predecessor. By the end of the record, it appears that they can do it all — funky, hip-hop-fueled dance-pop, seductive ballads, and mid-tempo jams — and they can do it all well. Other groups try to reach these heights, but they don't have the skills or the material to pull it off quite so well. True, the five-year wait felt interminable, and they're now standard-bearers instead of pioneers, but if takes TLC as long to make a sequel to FanMail, so be it — they have one of the best track records in '90s urban soul. [Fanmail was also released in a "clean" edition, containing no profanities or vulgarities.]

Customer Reviews

Ahead of its time!

1999's hit album "FanMail" could have been ahead of its time. The beats on this album sound very futureistic. All the songs are great and could have been hits! This is a different direction from their previous album "CrazySexyCool" but it's still very addictive! I used to love TLC ever since I heard their song "What About Your Friends" in 1991. Any TLC fan's collection isn't complete without this album!

A fantastic girl group album

Ok so.. this reminds me a little of Janet Jackson with all the little notes inbetween the songs but so what.. it's so well done .. we can forgive this. This album flows together so nicely.. it's a great pop /hip hop/dance record.. that still stands up just fine today. Really fun.. a favorite of mine. Well done. If you like Janet and Destiny's Child you must give this a listen.

Initially, their image was equal parts style and spirit, bolstered by a flamboyant, outrageous wardrobe. As time passed, they became equally...
