Gems (1994)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Patti LaBelle; Genre: R&B

PATTI LABELLE Gems (MCA) Patti LaBelle's voice remains as hopeful as ever on the smooth ballads on Gems, so it must be the intimate, stripped-down arrangements that leave the listener so heavyhearted. From the quasi-religious ''Come as You Are'' to the sultry ''Time Will Tell,'' these gems are as plaintive as they are uplifting. B
