Picks and Pans Review: Welcome Ii

Next (Arista)

Following up 1998's irresistible "Too Close" with their latest hit single, "Wifey," this Minneapolis vocal trio still displays a sexy confidence. What they lack is consistently strong material. Much of this sophomore CD fixates on cybersex, and with eye-rolling lyrics like "I want your PC to sit on my laptop," it is hard to take Next seriously or give them credit for more substantial numbers like the reggae-flavored "Oh No No" or the bumpin' "Jerk."

Bottom Line: Uneven—next, please
