"...As kids SWV (Sisters With Voices) fantasized about New Edition. More potent than they're daydreaming was the vocal skill they honed in the hallways of Brooklyn and Bronx schools...they debut sassily with 15 cuts that mix mellow R&B, smooth-edged New Jack production and grittier rap-inflected delights...."

SWV (Sisters With Voices) were nominated for a 1994 Grammy Award as "Best New Artist."
SWV (Sisters With Voices) electrified the urban contemporary world with It's About Time. Their deep, sensual harmonies, sometimes naughty lyrics and aggressive style immediately struck a responsive chord, particularly among male fans. Their CD shows their versatility, as they handled New Jack tunes, romantic ballads like "It's About Time," and sassy, innuendo-laden fare such as "Blak Pudd'n" and "That's What I Need." Their hits "Weak" and "Right Here" had the same blend of heat and vulnerability that underscore the best En Vogue material, and even though this CD was padded by remixes and repeats, it was still among the finest debuts issued in 1992. ~ Ron Wynn
