Album Review

With cover art that features one of the best uberbrows in the history of music, In Effect Mode and its lead single, "Nite and Day," took Al B. Sure! from being just another smooth R&B singer to the top of the music charts. It certainly didn't hurt matters much that André Harrell and Teddy Riley helped to produce this debut album. Of course, the leadoff track helped to redefine quiet storm ballads for the new jack generation, but there are other gems on In Effect Mode as well, including "Off on Your Own (Girl)," where the narrator pursues the love of an uninterested lady, only to find out later that she is a lesbian. The updated, digitally enhanced cover of the classic "Killing Me Softly" is also of note, if only to contrast how the tone and palette of R&B evolved over a short period of time. And "Just a Taste of Lovin'" most certainly foreshadows the new jack phenomenon that Teddy Riley was to mastermind. Most people would be well off just getting these songs on one of the many readily available greatest-hits compilations, but those looking to dig deeper will no doubt enjoy this album from start to finish.

Essence of R&B - jamz during my crush

I had a huge crush on my neiboor for so many year years growing up at about 10-12, i adored this girl, her presence alone would make me forget everything- i would do anything for her- her name was Katia....i dreamed of her nite and day.... Then i moved away, but we later hooked up when i visited, around the age of 17, we had sex, but for me it was love, we made love.... I should sau that during the time before we reunited i liscended to Al B Sure's albulm every day and nite... Kept her on my mind and in my heart for years before we met again...this album is a treasure, it is pure emotion... It embodies the kind of deep feeling tou cant describe in words...only try. Every song painted the lusious picture of your deepest passions felt.... The way they are sung simply touches on perfection, soulful, romantic and I am thankful i had this album during my teenage crush.... It helped me bear the pain....Marc DuBois
