Good Guys

That sophomore album is a tremendous hurdle for these talented soulful brothers. Not sure of the cause but for these brothers either the 2nd go round their projects weren't promoted properly or they never even made it back in to the studio.

I wanted to recognize their work and send love and blessings. Hopefully we haven't heard the last of them.

I wonder if there was such a huge saturation of their type of neo-soul sound in the late 90's/ early 2000's that cancelled them out in terms of audience, particularly because they weren't in the mainstream like Badu or Maxwell or (gasp!) DeAngelo.

I also wonder if their destinies were determined by their record companies not putting enough gusto behind their sophomore projects and moving to other things, sensing the rise in popularity of rap- and r&b-driven music.

I personally miss Remy Shand.

Lyte, you really picked a good group of guys. Can't leave out Jesse Powell and Jon B. Really miss their crooning voices!
