Room 112

by: 112

112, Puff Daddy's four-man crew of smooth-crooning R&B loverboys, come on sticky and earnest throughout their second album, Room 112, combining old-school doo wop harmonies with '90s hip-hop trappings. Because this is a Puffy project, an occasional heavy-handed sample creeps in for a visit (e.g., the use of Shawn Colvin's "Sunny Came Home" during one tune). The best cut here is "Love Me," a bit of new jack breakdown that swings and hammers with convincing verve and groove. ~ Michael Gallucci
