Part III

The Atlanta quartet 112 not only have the distinction of being the most successful R&B ensemble on Puffy's Bad Boy record label; with a string of hit singles such as 1996's "Come See Me" and 1998's "Love Me," the playful hip-hop soul quartet are also poised to become the new millennium's Boyz II Men. On their aptly titled third disc, Part III, 112 flex their vocal chops on a set of up-tempo and mid-tempo tracks that address the many facets of love. The bass-infused club thumper "It's Over Now" expresses the bitter sentiments of a lover scorned, and "Missing You" and "Caught Up" deal with the residual pain and regret experienced after a breakup. Meanwhile, on the polished "Player" and "Don't Hate Me," Q, Mike, ...

Meanwhile, on the polished "Player" and "Don't Hate Me," Q, Mike, Daron, and Slim leave sentimentality behind as they trade verses chock-full of street braggadocio characteristic of any good Bad Boy. Even so, the fellas return to their romantic musings on the immaculate, soulful "Still in Love," demonstrating that 112 are one of the most versatile acts in contemporary R&B. Neo Brentacious
All Music Guide - Jose F. Promis
112 have proven themselves as one of the most successful and enduring acts to emerge from the 1990s urban music explosion, and continue to prove their longevity on their third set, Part III. Their second album, Room 112, despite the hits "Love Me" and "Anywhere," failed to hint at any artistic progress for the group, but the third effort is a different story. A lot of the sappy ballads that impaired their previous outings are abandoned in favor of edgier, techno-flavored jams, resulting in a more modern and forward-sounding effort. The album's first single, "It's Over Now," is an aching slice of melodrama that proved to be the group's biggest hit to date, and one of the best singles of the year. Other cuts on the album pick up where that one left off, utilizing cutting beats and electronic sounds, such as the album's dance-flavored opener "Dance With Me," the second single "Peaches & Cream," and "All I Want Is You," which is augmented with rock guitars to fine effect. And as always, the group's vocals are nothing short of stellar. Despite some clichéd lyrics case in point -- "Don't Hate Me" and sagging ballads toward the middle of the album although the ballad "Missing You" is a well-crafted slice of true soul, this set is definitely a step in the right direction for a hard-working group one can happily classify as having evolved.

    112, creative, cute and classy!

    112 is the boys 11 men of today. They sing with meaning and feeling of the songs they have written. They have many different varieties of melody. They contribute to many different age groups. There lyrics are clean in meaning and send a message out to those who listen. They are not as ''thuggish'' as many other artists are today. They seem very well mannered and clean cut. In my opinion they are the best boy band. I think they will become as known and lasting as boy II men. I know that they will make it far in the music indrustry. They have great talent, looks, writing ability and youth.

    I've waited 2 years for 112's new album and...

    I think that this ''Part III'' album is just another winner to add to the collection. Even though I'm a big advocate for downloading MP3's, I couldn't hold back from running to the store at midnight when it came out, and throwing it into my CD player! 112's new stuff is PIMP! They provide great harmony with hardcore beats to make any listner pleased!
