Album Review

One of the more distinctive R&B groups of the late '80s and early '90s, Tony! Toni! Toné! managed to appeal to urban contemporary audiences while expressing a love of 1970s soul and funk. As high-tech as things get on its sophomore effort, The Revival, the Oakland trio never fails to sound organic and soulful. Funk smokers like "The Blues," "Oakland Stroke," "Let's Have a Good Time," and "Feels Good" (a major hit) may use technology extensively, but the soulsters always sound like they're in control of the technology (as opposed to it controlling them). Drawing on influences ranging from Digital Underground to Sly & the Family Stone, Parliament/Funkadelic, and Prince, Tony! clearly like their funk down and dirty. And yet, the group sounds equally inspired on such laid-back and mellow slow jams as "I Care" and the hit "It Never Rains in Southern California." Many of the urban contemporary releases of 1990 were gutless and homogenized, but The Revival is an album that had artistic integrity as well as commercial appeal.

Very Good

When you listen to this album, it's like your taking a journey into another world. "Feels Good" "It Never Rains In Southern California", and "What Ever You Want" are of course the best.

Tony!Toni!Tone!

Soulful and poppin' from start to finish. It Never Rains in Southern California is smooth and it makes you feel like taking a flight to Cali. Oakland Stroke will have you bouncin'. This is the perfect summer album. It's got a old school funk to it that will keep you rockin'

STILL A CLASSIC

Man they need to go ahead and rekindle this TRIO. I went to see Tony Toni Tone last summer at a concert. MAN I was gypt it was NOT Rapheal but a cousin that looked like him. Even though they still rocked it..this group is bad as SHYT! MUST HAVE IN THE COLLECTION. That is if you were at least in high school or grown in the 90's. TOP BILLING!

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Brothers Dwayne and Raphael Wiggins and cousin Timothy Christian have proven themselves durable guardians of the soul and funk tradition, while also infusing their music with enough contemporary devices to remain popular. This Oakland trio scored a number one R&B hit right out of the box in 1988 with "Little Walter," a song that generated some criticism from gospel audiences for its use of the melody from "Wade in the Water." But they've since been able to keep things going on their own, as their...
