TLC: CrazySexyCool [La Face, 1994]
Three great songs here: in ascending order, the cheater's whisper "Creep," the sisters' sermon "Waterfalls," and the wet dream's statement of principle "Red Light Special." The filler sustains, the skits are funnysexycool, the male rappers rock. But other wet dreams end badly--a guy would have to be pretty hard up to sustain four minutes interest in "Let's Do It Again"'s vow of lifelong intromission--and the project's caution is summed up by the Prince cover. Really, ladies, the brilliance of "If I Was Your Girlfriend" was that a guy was singing it.
