Back in 1997 Chris Rock launched a broadside against much contemporary R&B with the song 'Champagne'. It opens with an aggressive monologue that runs: "Yo man, R&B sucks!/I mean there's a couple of people that can flow/But for the most part, the genre sucks/Just a bunch of people singin' over rap beats/Get a old rap record?

This review is from: R&B - The Collection (Audio CD)
Back in 1997 Chris Rock launched a broadside against much contemporary R&B with the song 'Champagne'. It opens with an aggressive monologue that runs: "Yo man, R&B sucks!/I mean there's a couple of people that can flow/But for the most part, the genre sucks/Just a bunch of people singin' over rap beats/Get a old rap record? Sing over it!/Now everybody talk about their label, label this, label that". This plainly-presented, unmixed compilation features plenty of radio-friendly hits from the last 30 years - like Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy', Missy Elliott's 'Get Ur Freak On', Dawn Penn's' 'You Don't Love Me (No, No, No)' and Tweet's 'Oops (Oh My)' - that go some way to disproving Rock's point. But this inexpensive 3 CD box-set also features plenty of vainglorious, soulless and unsexy stuff - such as All-4-One's 'I Swear' and Color Me Badd's 'I Wanna Sex You Up' - that suggest the American comedian hadn't got things completely wrong about the genre. And over its 60 tracks R&B: The Collection also shows that when British acts slavishly imitate their American counterparts - as pop stars All Saints and Blazin' Squad do - they sound like inferior copies; when they are a bit more imaginative in the way that they use their inspirations - as grime's Kano and Wiley are - they sound a lot more persuasive.

Quite a few of these tracks appear on other albums that I have, but that's to be expected, still not bad for the price.
