R&B superstars Gerald Levert, Keith Sweat, and Johnny Gill first got together as LSG in 1997 for an appropriately soulful debut record that featured an all-star guest roster from Busta Rhymes to LL Cool J and production from Jermaine Dupree and P. Diddy nee Sean "Puffy" Combs. Six years later, the threesome drops the follow-up, LSG-2, and this time, sagely, the vocal giants are more subtle, letting their gargantuan talents speak for themselves.
On LSG-2, the guest stars are few and lower-key, but memorable. Rising star rapper Loon offers a strong turn on "Friends," the latest alteration on the Whodini classic, and Craig T. Cooper's vocoder hook sets the sultry, funky vibe on the sexed-out "Shakedown." But for the most part LSG2 is about Levert, Sweat, and Gill doing what they do best, their siren songs luring listeners anywhere the dulcet-toned balladeers might desire. The three trade off vocals on one appealing track after another, complementing each other to perfection, nowhere better than on the bouncy, catchy "What About Me?" LSG2 came after a long wait, but the icons don't disappoint, as the supergroup's sophomore effort offers consistent sensual soul.
