Nεш Editioи - Hεαяτ Brεαk (1988)
Wait, a GOOD Boy Band album? With major New Jack Swing vibes? IMPOSSIBLE!
Yessir, this is some prime ribbage from R&B's chunkier plastic pile of the late 80's. Sure the cheese meter is going into overdrive on multiple instances and everyone looks like a reject from someone's ghetto rendition of Kraftwerk, but when style and substance come together this well in this particular niche, the results are fantastic. Killer harmonies, sick beats, and some very solid songwriting all packaged together under the premise of outright commercialism -- who woulda' thunk it?
Listen Here - "N.E. Heartbreak"
