Music Review: 'Nathan Michael Shawn Wanya' (2014)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Boyz II Men; Genre: R&B

Boyz II Men drop the balladeering on their fifth CD, Nathan Michael Shawn Wanya, in favor of mature, danceable, even occasionally sexy tracks that, while not perfect, offer a respite from their past shtick. They never quite venture into R. Kelly territory, but there are hints of libido and open dissatisfaction with playing nice (''I try to be the good guy/You take me for granted''). Those matching sweater vests must've been getting pretty tight. B
