Diary of a Mad Band (1993)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Jodeci; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

On their second album, Diary of a Mad Band, Jodeci's clean, shimmery four-part harmonies and lover-man grooves often transcend the formulaic histrionics that marred their debut. The best moments: when the group's singing slips out of baggy jeans and into church choir robes. Hip-hop souls, saved by the gospel.
