II

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
With their second album, II, Boyz II Men assured their place at the top of the charts, as well as history. "I'll Make Love to You," the album's first single, stayed on the top of the charts for over two months, only to be unseated by "On Bended Knee," the album's second single. Not surprisingly, II is a carefully constructed crowd pleaser, accentuating all of the finest moments from their hit debut. While there are some high-energy dance tracks, the album's main strength is its slower numbers, where the group's vocals soar.

    One Of The Best!!!

    This is one of Boyz II Men's best c.d's. I still listen to it all of the time!! "II" is a one of a kind c.d that is timeless and hoplessly romantic!!! I have yet to hear another one like it!!!

    I Listen To It Almost Every Night (Although the years have past)

    Well, my favorites are All Around the World and Jezzebel. All of the songs on this CD are great but those two hit me to the heart because the last time I saw Mike I ask him where was he going? He said, Hawaii, I thought, I always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I can't leave my children. Well when BoyzIIMen came out with this tune All Around the World the guys tell all the places they''ve been and I can actually hear Michael whispering my name as they mention all the girls they met along the way. To me this was chilling, because I just learnt he had put that on the track(summer 2000). Oh yes, I remember the B train.:) He is cute and crazy. We buy all their CD's. Congratulations on you new CD and your marriage. You finally found love. I'm happy for you! You deserve it. Marsha(Home girl)

    they are great!

    I've listened to Boyz 2 Men on the radio ever since I came to this country and really didn't understand what they were singing about. But even then I understood great music accentuated by the group's unbelievable vocals and harmony. The songs 'I'll make Love to you' and 'On bended knee' as well as 'Water Runs dry' are chart topping favorites and makes you feel about the deep love and passion that only they are able to bring so vividly to life. I hope everyone purchases this CD and also gives their other CD's a chance. They are all fabulous!
