CrazySexyCool: CD


Release Date: 30 November, 1999

CrazySexyCool is the second studio album by girl group TLC, first released by LaFace Records on November 15, 1994. On their second album, TLC downplay their overt rap connections, recording a smooth, seductive collection of contemporary soul reminiscent of both Philly soul and Prince, powered by new jack and hip-hop beats. Lisa Lopes contributes the occasional rap, but the majority of CrazySexyCool belongs to Tionne Watkins and Rozonda Thomas. The cover of Prince's If I Was Your Girlfriend indicates, TLC favour erotic, mid-tempo funk. Yet the group removes any of the psychosexual complexities of Prince's songs, leaving a batch of sexy material that just sounds good, especially the hit singles. Both Creep and Red Light Special have a deep groove that accentuates the slinky hooks, but it's Waterfalls, with its gently insistent horns and guitar lines and instantly memorable chorus, that ranks as one of the classic R&B songs of the '90s.
