Karyn White’s voice is stupendous. Shame her momentum stalled after The away I Feel About You. This remains special.
SWV vs. Xscape day 2. For me both groups' sophomore albums seem to be mirrors of each other, in that New Beginnings isn't as bulletproof as It's About Time, while so far Off The Hook has higher highs than Hummin'... did. I still largely prefer SWV in terms of vocals and overall production though - It's All About U is one of my favorite R&B songs of the 90s.
Kandi definitely has the best vocals for me out of everyone in Xscape. So far SWV's albums are a lot stronger on the whole thoughBoth acts are on my list to explore, I always assumed I would prefer Xscape given how much I love Kandi's first solo album and the many bops she's penned. I only know 2-3 of SWV's singles, all of which I've enjoyed.
