Overview

On their second album, TLC downplay their overt rap connections, recording a smooth, seductive collection of contemporary soul reminiscent of both Philly soul and Prince, powered by new jack and hip-hop beats. Lisa Lopes contributes the occasional rap, but the majority of CrazySexyCool belongs to Tionne Watkins and Rozonda Thomas. While they aren't the most accomplished vocalists -- they have a tendency to be just slightly off-key -- the material they sing is consistently strong. As the cover of Prince's "If I Was Your Girlfriend" indicates, TLC favor erotic, mid-tempo funk. Yet the group removes any of the psychosexual complexities of Prince's songs, leaving a batch of sexy material that just sounds good, especially the hit singles. Both "Creep" and "Red Light Special" have a deep groove that accentuates the slinky hooks, but it's "Waterfalls," with its gently insistent horns and guitar lines and instantly memorable chorus, that ranks as one of the classic R&B songs of the '90s.

After about maybe three years I never even knew bout TLC and just maybe in the year 2000 I just found out about them and this was the first time that I had listened to them and I think that all of ya'll out there should listen to it! After I listened to that one song which was ''Waterfalls'' I realized that it was talking bout me; but NOT directly to me but it was saying things that applied to me and that goes on through my life and what happens in my life! And so what i'm trying to say is buy this cd, and listen to it over and over until you understand what those three singers are really saying. Thank you very much for reading this or even scanning over it. If you do end up getting this cd then I wish I could know you so I can say thank you but if you already have this cd than I urge you to listen to it as soon as possible or as soon as you can. Again I say thank you!!!!!!!

wow! this cd is a classic! even though it's old now, i still like to pop it in my cd player now and then. all around, this cd is wonderful. there's no need to skip through any songs. i love the remake of "case of the fake people" and the remake of prince's "if i was your girlfriend." I love the slow, romantic feel to "take our time". i love the upbeat "switch" and "kick your game" and the chilling but the reality of "sumthin wicked this way comes." in my opinion, csc is one of the best girl group cds to date!
