Jodeci - Diary Of A Mad Band (1993)


I think Diary Of A Madman is a stronger album than Forever My Lady (also great) since it is noticeably less over the top, or at least they use their hyper-emotional style in a more convincing way. I was also pleased to hear fewer stabs at poppy, new jack swing-ish hip hop mashups. Diary Of A Mad Band features a more noticeable variation in beats, hooks, style, and features and proves that DeVante deserves to mentioned in the same breath as Daz, Havoc, and Dr. Dre as one of the hottest producers of the mid-90s.
