Kenneth Babyface Edmonds

Grown & Sexy

If you can get past his incessant clichés (”sometimes the grass isn’t greener. . .”) and inexplicable compulsion to break into a strained falsetto, Babyface’s music on Grown & Sexy is as catchy as ever. Though none of these sexed-up love ballads and sickly sweet sentimental ditties has the classic sound of 1989’s ”Whip Appeal,” smooth new sing-alongs like ”Mad Sexy Cool” and the irresistibly groovy ”Tonight It’s Goin’ Down” make this CD perfect for grown folks who want to. . .well, get sexy.
