EV3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Leo Stanley
The sound of En Vogue isn't greatly affected by the departure of Dawn Robinson for their third album, EV3, since the group's harmonies remain remarkably supple and soulful. Instead, the group are hurt by its selection of producers and songwriters. En Vogue have decided to work with Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy only occasionally on EV3, choosing to hire such professional songwriters and producers as Babyface, David Foster, Diane Warren and Ivan Matias, who arranged their hit single "Don't Let Go Love."

In the cases of Warren and Foster, they reshape En Vogue as an adult contemporary band, sapping the group of any of their energy or style. Still, there are enough strong moments scattered throughout the album to make it worth the wait.

    The Awesome Trio!

    Forget Dawn! I never liked her anyway. This album showed that even without Dawn they are able to keep their vocals tight and make you groove. I totally recommend "Damn I Wanna Be Your Lover" and "Too Gone, Too Long" those are the best songs, and I believe Terry Ellis showed how great she is as a singer. I encourage you to get this album.
