This follow-up to the platinum-selling debut IT'S ABOUT TIME doesn't stray too far from SWV's R&B-meets-pop appeal, but experience and maturity add depth to a second album that a lot of people thought would never come out. This really does sound like a NEW BEGINNING. From start to finish, the focus is on love, as the titles make quite clear: "Where Is The Love," "Love Is So Amazin'," "You Are My Love," "I'm So In Love"). But the production is diverse, drawing fine lines from one song to the next. And while Coko's lead vocals dominated the debut album, here she takes a backseat to bandmates Taj and Lelee on "New Beginning (Interlude)," "It's All About U" and "Don't Waste Your Time," giving the trio a richer, fuller sound this time around.
