Music Review

Midnite Lover (1997)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Lead Performance: Shaggy; Genre: Reggae/Ska

Two years after striking crossover gold with Boombastic, Shaggy abandons the hardcore flavor of that rambunctious top 5 single for reggae-spiced R&B in Midnite Lover. But his third album is mostly spineless, watered-down stuff, better suited to Maxi Priest (who happens to be in the house). And the world certainly does not need to take yet another ''Piece of My Heart.'' C+
