In Brief

May 05, 1996|Cheo Hodari Coker

The vocal trio's success the first time around was no fluke. Seductively mixing taut, hip-hop beats and blissful, gospel-rooted vocals, songs such as the sassy "You're the One," the nonchalant "When This Feeling" and the gentle "Love Is So Amazin' " make "New Beginning" one of the most satisfying contemporary R&B releases since the "Waiting to Exhale" soundtrack.
