Overview

This debut from the R&B vocal trio the Gablz has a direct and musical tone that harkens back to the '80s heyday of breathy soul crooning, and the accompanying proclamations of love and desire. Passionate (if a little silly) tracks like the single "Shookie Shookie (Gimme Some of Your Sweet Cookie)" shoot from below the hip, and, although far from lyrically elegant, the retro beats and vocal performances on The Gablz make for a fun and fulfilling listen. Singers George Alston, Willie Cotton, and Samuel L. Johnson IV are credited with writing and arranging much of the material on this debut, along with producer/arranger/musician/programmer Bernard Lilton, who deserves plenty of credit for supporting some fine singing with solid beats and slick production. If listeners can ignore the clichéd and single-minded lyrics, tracks like the "Shookie" single and "It's a Ladies Night at Chocolate City" are real musical standouts, but the smooth R&B flows with considerable ease throughout each of The Gablz's 13 silky tracks.
