    • Comedy

The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

Boyz II Men, II, 1994 *Rolling stones lists this as 1991, that is incorrect

With their innocent romanticism and meticulous vocal arrangements, Boyz II Men became the most commercially successful R&B vocal group of all time. II includes two mammoth hits, courtesy of Babyface: “I’ll Make Love to You” and the audaciously baroque “Water Runs Dry.” But the group’s own Nathan Morris and Shawn Stockman composed II‘s most poignant moment, “Khalil’s Interlude,” a soft onslaught that’ll leave you sobbing in the fetal position: “I need shelter from the rain/To ease the pain of changing from boys to men. - Rolling Stone


Rolling Stone's pick: I’ll Make Love to You
Lauren's pick: Water runs dry
Tom's pick: Yesterday (or All Around the World)
