商品説明

No mere breakthrough, 1991's Cooleyhighharmony was one of the decade's biggest debuts, setting Boyz II Men well on their path to becoming what the RIAA certified the most successful R&B group of all time. Their sound, dubbed hip-hop doo-wop and aided in large part by the productions and arrangements of Dallas Austin, was a shrewd and flexible mix of contemporary and throwback elements. Fully exploiting the members' stunning vocal chops on ballads as a close harmony group, while hardly washed out when matched with densely layered upbeat material (new jack swing was still in full flight), the group put a mature collegiate spin on what were, at the time, the last two New Edition albums, updating the techniques reminiscent of the doo wop covered on Under the Blue Moon within a set that was as modern-sounding as the singles off Heart Break. It contains that rare mix of hot singles with several album cuts that could have just as easily been hits, the ultimate measure of a release that is both commercially and creatively successful. While the album was carried by four Top Ten R&B singles, two of which -- the swinging, anthemic Motownphilly and an a cappella version of the Cooley High soundtrack's It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday, the tear duct activator of 1991/1992 -- went Top Five on the pop chart, there is substantial depth. The non-single highlights include the sweet slow jam This Is My Heart, sonically somewhere between Gwen Guthrie's Outside in the Rain and an organic Babyface ballad, and the frantic new jack swinger Under Pressure, perhaps too much like Motownphilly or Dallas Austin's most chaotic Bomb Squad-inspired productions. In its original ten-song form, in fact, Cooleyhighharmony is a brisk 40-minute set built for front-to-back listening, though the sequencing is more natural with the adagio and allegro halves switched up. For many of those responsible for its multi-platinum status, it is the album of the early '90s, Uhh Ahh's amusing libidinal melisma notwithstanding. [Had the group not continued rolling with non-album material, like the record-breaking End of the Road (number one for 13 consecutive weeks, taken from the Boomerang soundtrack), or the a cappella rendition of In the Still of the Night (which peaked at number three, from The Jacksons soundtrack), Motown could have milked a few more singles out of it. Instead, Motown waited until the 1993 holiday shopping season, took advantage of those non-album hits, and rolled out a 17-track version of Cooleyhighharmony with new artwork.] ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

Boyz II Men

90年代初頭のコーラス・グループ・ブームの火つけ役として知られているとおり、Boyz II Men最大の持ち味は、言うまでもなく流麗なヴォーカル/コーラス・ワークだ。どのアルバムについても言えることだが、時代の先端をキープしつつも自身の在り方をしっかりと見据えたバランス感覚こそがBoyz II Menたらしめているのではないだろうか。
