Overview

After doing more than their share of macho posturing in the mid-'90s, new jack R&B trio H-Town made a point of being more respectful to women on their third album, Ladies Edition, Woman's World. Hip-hop-influenced ballads and slow jams like "Ways to Treat a Woman," "Natural Woman," and the single "They Like It Slow" have a decidedly respectful tone, but for the most part, the Houston group avoids turning this CD into an exercise in preachy, whiny political correctness. Even if you spoke no English and didn't understand the poignant lyrics to "Julie Rain" (a sobering account of a woman who dies from spousal abuse) and "Jezebel" (which describes a single mother who turns to prostitution and drugs), it's obvious that these songs are examples of passionate R&B crooning. A definite improvement over H-Town's previous albums, Ladies Edition, Woman's World was one of the stronger "jeep soul" releases of late 1997.

This is a great CD! This CD is a perfect example of real R&B. Something that will hit the soul. H-Town is one of the best R&B group that hit the 90's. H-Town is my favorite R&B group. Dino and his voice will truly be miss. He has great talent.Rest in peace. On the real the CD is touching. H-Town music live 4 ever!!!

This is the latest release that the group has. It shows the group's maturity over the years. Their album is one of the most positive albums that I have ever heard. With good promotion, this album should've out sold any of their previous releases. Take it from me ... this will be a purchase that you will never regret. One of the best producers and singers in the world has been lost. But heaven has gained a wonderful member in its choir. Dino (R.I.P.) November 18, 1975 - January 28, 2003.

Though many people probably don't know, this is one of the top 5 R&B albums of the 90's. H-Town never got the credit they deserved. It's a trajedy that the lead singer, Dino passed away (along with his girlfriend) and it took a month and a half for me to even hear about it. They had just finished recording a comeback album when it happened, and I only hope it's still released. This album is priceless, and is their best ever.
