Take note, 'N Sync: Today the world, tomorrow--who knows? Just two years ago, Boyz II Men were headlining arenas and amphitheaters packed with young women deliriously enraptured by the biggest-selling R&B vocal group of the '90s. Emerging from the intervening years out of the spotlight, the Boyz still generated plenty of squeals Thursday at the outset of a comeback tour, but they came from considerably fewer than 1,000 fans at the Sun Theatre in Anaheim.

That's what electrified the mostly teenage, mostly female, crowd at Boyz II Men's show at the Great Western Forum on Sunday, and it's also what's made the Philadelphia quartet the biggest-selling R&B vocal group of the decade.

For Boyz II Men, it primarily involves projecting an image that's chaste and nonthreatening while providing, by means of their lush yet polite balladry, romantic and sexual wish fulfillment for millions of impressionable girls.

"Just plain old lying and scamming--the all-American way of doing things." That's how Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman laughingly describes what the red-hot Motown vocal group did to jump-start its career one crucial night. Now the group is reveling in the success triggered by its trickery, with a debut album, "Cooleyhighharmony," that's nearing the 3 million mark in sales, bolstered by two Top 10 singles, "Motownphilly" and "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday."
