Overview

What's more surprising? That Pleasure and Pain, One Twelve's fifth album, is not a greatest-hits compilation named after a song off their 1996 debut, or that it comes with a parental advisory label? In nearly a decade of existence, the group has amassed enough charting singles to warrant a concise best-of, and not many artists coming up with them during the mid-'90s are still active. In the wake of parting with P. Diddy and Bad Boy, they've taken the opportunity to work with a mostly new pool of collaborators, including Mario Winans, Jermaine Dupri, and Bryan-Michael Cox, who each pitch in once or twice. They remain self-sufficient otherwise, with member Daron Jones handling a good portion of the production duties. The result isn't much different from the previous albums, with a few standout singles and album tracks surrounded by a generous amount of forgettable moments, and a similar ratio of upbeat numbers and ballads to match. The parental advisory label (a first for the once squeaky-clean group) can actually be pinned on previously unlikely collaborators Three 6 Mafia. (Who could've ever predicted that a line as forthright as "Is she gonna chew me up or she gon' swallow up my nads" would ever appear in one of their songs? Nobody.)

112 is back with their fifth installment Pleasure and Pain. Pleasure and Pain is a collection of unsaturated soul and pure R&B. We know that Hot & Wet did not do as good as anyone would hope. However, with this album comes some pretty sweet redemption. With songs such as "Nowhere", "That's How Close We Are", and "God Knows" it's evident that this group is back. I would recommend everyone to purchase this album. It'a a love manual you will definetly seek the rewards that this album gives.

these new album is the best yet and i hope there is more to come. they have all genres on the album including hip pop and slow jams. although we know that 112 are best at their slow jams. i would recommend everyone to purchase this album as they will not be disappointed.
