Smooth Grooves: A Sensual Collection, Vol. 2 collects more seductive slow jams and quiet storm ballads, including Cameo's "Why Have I Lost You," Rick James' "Fire and Desire," Teddy Pendergrass' "Come Go With Me," and Chapter 8's "I Just Wanna Be Your Girl." Tracks by Stephanie Mills, Atlantic Starr, Alicia Myers, and Shirley Murdock are among the other highlights of this set, which does an admirable job of collecting popular and lesser-known singles from these sensual styles. ~ Heather Phares
