Pretty Ricky, a quartet of related young men who could be filed under R&B or rap, fly so over the top that they can no longer see the top. They're the kind of guys your mother wouldn't think to warn you about. That's how outrageous they are, fitting somewhere between Usher and the Ying Yang Twins at their most lecherous, but they're not nearly as effective as either influence -- "Get a taste of the salami, knock you down like tsunami" is not an atypical come-on. (A comedy troupe couldn't possibly come up with some of the lines.) Jim Jonsin produces most of the tracks, switching from pared-down Southern bumps to contemporary R&B backdrops. The group has more talent than it leads you to believe. Maybe they won't be so hungry for street credibility on album number two.

Pretty Ricky's debut is one of the best I've heard in a while. Pleasure is an old friend of mine, and that you all should go out and support my boy and his equally talented brothers. The songs that are the best are #2,3,6,7,8,12,13,and 14. Overall, superstar status with this CD.
Even though they are young and they really can't rap as good yet, Pleasure will make you love every song. Once you like every song you forget that the rest of them can't rap and you'll end up liking it. Pleasure sings good and the beats are tight. I love all the songs especially Playhouse, Call Me, Never Let You Go, Get a Lil closer, and I Want You.
Damn pretty ricky has great songs. I love Your Body that is my favorite song foreva. Damn he so fine. I love pretty ricky..Keep your good songs up I love them..
This is my favorite CD of ALL time. I love ALL the songs. Pleasure P's voice is intoxicating and sexy. His voice'll make any girl drop. It's way better then the second one they came out with, though I still love that one too. This CD is the perfect companion for those nights when your with your boo. *wink wink* It'll set any mood your lookin for in that area!
They're soo hot! I think they're the next best thing. Good harmony and good looks , shoot they've got it all! I love them!
Pretty Ricky's album, Bluestars is great and I love all the songs, I just can't get enough of Pleasure sexy voice expecially in "Nothing but a number", ohh he so fine. I love Your Body, Grill'Em, Chevy, Shorty Be Mine, and Playhouse. I love all the songs but expessially the ones i named.
YOU CAN"T GO WRONG IF YO BUY THIS ALBUM!!!! Every song is for a specific location and event :) This album is a special treat to all the ladies from Pretty Ricky! They are ALL SPECTACULAR!!!
I am the biggest fan of this group I lost their cd and cried every night until my birthday one week later my mama got it for me again then I found the one Ilost and ended up with two bluestars pretty ricky cds, Not to mention how I to mostly all their concert in my state and out. I love them with a passion, so dumb.
This CD is the best that i have heard in a long time, I love every song. The beat and chorus to every song is so different but each one is good in its own way. Most of the songs on this CD are not fast enough to dance to but there prefect to listen to when your just hanging out with your friends. Each member of the band brings a different vibe to the song and when you put them all together they make some great songs. Also i love that they talk about stuff that really happens in life with girl friends/boy friends and relationships. Over all the CD is great and i recommend it highly!
Its true, they most deffinatly make the best music. They are perfectly harmonized, and they're lyrics will make every girl swoon. THey are a bit like Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz without all the OKAYs and the WHAT's, and they are also like usher with smooth enchanting hooks. The background music couldnt be any sleeker either. They're lyrics arent all just... " ooo come here girl let me **** you, your so hot bounce that *** for me, give me your number so we can screw cuz I'm not about love I'm just about ***" bull. They actually have some songs that mean something more than that. My personal fave is Never Let You Go, and Call me. But you know i also like the Playhouse. Gotta keep it dirrrty too! But you should buy the cd its a good one, deff. one you wont regret buying!
