All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On his third album, Anytime, Brian McKnight continues with the mellow, romantic urban R&B that has become his trademark, but there's a new twist.

    One of the greatest R&B albums of all time!

    An unbelieveable R&B album by an unbelieveably talented R&B artist. B. McKnight writes all of his own songs and plays all of the instruments on most of the songs. Not only that, but he sings most of the harmonies on the songs. He is a much better artist than R. Kelly. R. Kelly who?
