Hard [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
On their fourth album, Hard, Atlanta quartet Jagged Edge offer a winning mix of ballads and club-worthy grooves including the heart-tugging hit single "Walked Outta Heaven" and the funky bonus track "Car Show," featuring Big Boi of Outkast.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Jagged Edge seemed destined to assume Boyz II Men's place as the pre-eminent black male vocal group when its second album, 2000's J.E. Heartbreak, went double platinum. But 2001's Jagged Little Thrill did only half as much business, despite the presence on it of the group's most successful single, "Where the Party At," which topped the R&B chart and reached number three on...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Jagged Edge seemed destined to assume Boyz II Men's place as the pre-eminent black male vocal group when its second album, 2000's J.E. Heartbreak, went double platinum. But 2001's Jagged Little Thrill did only half as much business, despite the presence on it of the group's most successful single, "Where the Party At," which topped the R&B chart and reached number three on the Hot 100. Maybe the problem was that that track, which featured a rap by Nelly, was more aggressive than most Jagged Edge songs and more identified with the guest star than the headliners. If so, Jagged Edge didn't repeat the mistake with their fourth album, Hard. This time, the leadoff single, released months ahead of the full-length disc and rising in the R&B Top Ten and the pop Top 40 as the album appeared, is the more characteristic ballad "Walked Outta Heaven." It's a good calling card for the collection, which as usual is full of slow-tempo love songs anchored by synthetic bass beats that will test the capacity of woofers and filled with involved group vocal choruses set against pleading solo lead lines that weave in and out. Jermaine Dupri, the group's musical guru, has pulled back from deep involvement in the writing and producing, leaving those duties largely to Bryan-Michael Cox, Sick Cents Productions, Inc., and Melvin Coleman, who allow group members Brandon and Brian Casey to write the romantic lyrics and provide all the other musical elements. For variation, reggae rapper Major Damage toasts over "Girls Gone Wild," and Big Boi from OutKast raps on the bonus track "Car Show." But for the most part, it's the four singers themselves who dominate.

    I was so happy to work with a great set of guys. This CD is on of my favorite cd next to JE Heartbreak.The guys really stepped up and delivered a great CD that was a long time coming. My favorite song is "Whats it like". If you ever get the chance to listen to the words, you will understand why. 1

    Simply Phenomenal

    R&B music is cluttered with so many boy bands that it's hard to keep track of who's who. But when it comes to distinction and "edging out" the competition while creating a league of their own, the men of Jagged Edge always manage to successfully stand out. Their latest album is simply phenonemal like their passed three albums. If you haven't already purchased this album or added it to your wish list - don't hesitate to add this one from "Jagged Edge." It's really good.

    THIS CD IS TIIGHHHT!!!!!!!

    Jagged Edge's new album "Hard" is clean, and maintains a emotional vibe throughout each track. I recommend this cd, because they are known for their velvet voices derived from a church background. Please pick this up TODAY!!!!
