3D [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
How good is TLC? So good that they survive the tragic, early death of a key member -- Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was killed in a car accident during the recording of 3D -- with grace and style, turning out a record that sits comfortably next to their modern classics, Crazysexycool and FanMail. Perhaps surviving members Chilli and T-Boz spend a little too much time in the lyrics paying tribute to their colleague, but it's easy to glide past that and just concentrate on the strong songwriting and stylish production. Like their previous albums, the particulars don't matter as much as the overall impression. No member of TLC has an astounding voice, but their skills are ...

So good that they survive the tragic, early death of a key member -- Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was killed in a car accident during the recording of 3D -- with grace and style, turning out a record that sits comfortably next to their modern classics, Crazysexycool and FanMail. Perhaps surviving members Chilli and T-Boz spend a little too much time in the lyrics paying tribute to their colleague, but it's easy to glide past that and just concentrate on the strong songwriting and stylish production. Like their previous albums, the particulars don't matter as much as the overall impression. No member of TLC has an astounding voice, but their skills are exploited to the hilt, since the material not only suits them, it's melodic, memorable, and grows in stature with each play. Best of all, the production plays to the strength of the song, balancing the group's character and abilities with the hooks and character of the song. Perhaps 3D doesn't blaze trails like their other albums, but it never plays it safe and it always satisfies, and it's one of the best modern soul albums of 2002. A bittersweet triumph, perhaps, but it's better to go out on a positive note.

    3D

    TLC did great with this CD, it was certified platinum. But the death of Lefteye struck the fans and this CD was not promoted well enough so they have to end their career!!!! The Best of 2002!!!!!

    the talented tlc

    Re: Stephen Thomas Erlewine article. I quite apalled with statement made in reference to the tribute to Left Eye from Chilli and T-Boz, those of us that loved her understand the words of tribute and more than likeley, feel just as sad. So NO, can't glide over the tremendous loss that we must now all endure. Also, to make such a bold statement as, "No member of TLC has an astounding voice...", is showing the writers true ignorance or lack of knowledge about these three amazing, strong women. Chili has an exceptional voice, she can most definitely let it go, but for TLC, she maintains her part. T-Boz can sing as well, but for her part in the group the raspy voice was made her thing. And of course, Left Eye, who played the piano, classical & more, in a most exceptional manner. These are three women that remind me through many of their lyrics as well as by the women that they are that we can be crazy, intelligent, and ambitious women. We must take care of ourselves and so much more, that have said so eloquently with each of their songs. I hope all of the real, true appreciators of TLC, do go out & buy the new CD, 3D. For it is going to be just like every other time a new TLC, hella jammin'!!! The only difference now is we will appreciate it so much more, know that it is the last of something unbelievably amazing that so many of us were let in to share by the spectacular women of TLC.

    The end of the tunnel??

    this title is one of the paragraohs that appears in 3d , the new TLC´s album , that´s amiazing¡¡ lisa (rest in piece) appears in a so little time, but the cd is so addictive, like one of her producters,missy elliot, may say. "Quickie" is a great song and Dirty Dirty" enjoys to "Left eye gets a moment of silence
