Time for Healing

Time for Healing is Sounds of Blackness’ first major-label album without producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and lead singer Ann Nesby, but Salt ‘N’ Pepa and Craig Mack provide hip-hop assistance (and street cred) on two cuts. The band’s 11 singers flex enough vocal power on the rest of their fourth album to make this tour of gospel, rap, funk, and just about every other form of African-American musical expression well worth taking. B+
