Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
With the release of their fourth disc, Revelation, R&B and pop trio 98° have concocted the perfect balance of dance tracks and syrupy ballads to win over straggling 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys fans. With the sultry, Latin-inspired single "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)" leading the way, Nick, Drew, Jeff, and Justin prove they are a boy band force to contend with. On the up-tempo tracks, 98° borrow a page from the 'N Sync handbook, as on "Dizzy," which employs computerized vocals à la " 'N Sync's "Digital Getdown," and the sassy ode to lost love "He'll Never Be," which thematically mirrors 'N Sync's "It Makes Me Ill." Ballads, however, remain the Ohio ...

With the sultry, Latin-inspired single "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)" leading the way, Nick, Drew, Jeff, and Justin prove they are a boy band force to contend with.

Ballads, however, remain the Ohio quartet's mainstay -- and fans won't be disappointed by the soaring "Stay the Night," the sentimental "Always You," or the imploring "Yesterday's Letter." Another slow jam highlight is "My Everything," on which Jessica Simpson boy-toy Nick Lachey muses: "I pray on bended knee that you will always be my everything." With songs that come straight from the heart, it's clear that 98° will always give their fans the best that they've got.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It's hard not to feel a little sorry for 98°, since they're often overshadowed by their peers, the towering giants of male teen pop, Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. They've had hits as big as either group, but when it came time to release Revelation in the fall of 2000, they didn't have the grudging critical respect of the Backstreets or the cultural cache of N'Sync, who had dolls hitting toy stores the same month Revelation was unleashed. They were simply a teen pop band, capable of amiable dance-pop numbers and tuneful ballads, both of which sounded quite nice coming out of the radio. Not surprisingly, they wanted a little bit more than simply being an effective singles band; they didn't just want to hold their own with the Backstreets and N'Sync, they wanted to escape their shadow. The title of Revelation much like the title of the Sync's 2000 release No Strings Attached is a tip-off to their goal: They want to provide doubters with a revelation that they can indeed deliver strong music. If Revelation doesn't actually hold any, well, revelations, that shouldn't be held against the band, since they do wind up turning out a perfectly acceptable mainstream dance-pop album. Apart from the infectious opening cut, "Give Me Just One Night Una Noche," a song clearly influenced by Ricky Martin, and maybe "Dizzy," which adopts Cher-like vocoder tricks, they never stretch the boundaries of the music too much, preferring to just serve up straight dance-pop and sweet ballads. They lean a little heavily on the ballads, thereby aligning themselves with the Backstreet Boys' classy crooning rather than N'Sync's charged adolescent pop. That wouldn't be a problem if the songs were just a little better constructed, so that the melodies stand out prominently on the first listen, but ultimately, the album feels a little samey. Not bad, necessarily, but a little familiar, especially since the peppier songs have stronger hooks and attitude. The preponderance of ballads weighs down the album a bit, even if some of them hold up quite well on their own, and they make Revelations seem like it has more filler than it actually does. Ultimately, it's a good singles album, which may not be enough to make 98° hold their own with the Backstreets or Sync, but it is enough to make for a solid teen pop album.

    white guys can sing

    It's great hearing the amazing sounds that has legendarily (if that's a word) break the stereo type. I found the second cd to be even a much richer quality. I'm feeling it . Sounds like R&B to me.

    hip hop songs will rule the world

    I think that 98* degrees will rule the world with their song ''My Everything.'' I fell in love with the song the first time I heard it.My friend has the cd and I listen and sing the song over and over again. You guys are great, you guys didn't give up like most did because you all wanted to follow your dreams.
