Muze PNote Able to leap flawlessly from one vocal register to the next, Johnny Gill is his generation's Teddy Pendergrass. His sultry music evokes the soul that dominated R&B radio in the 1970s, and it returns a sense of maturity to the genre. Gill added a near-gospel flavor to HOME AGAIN, the reunion album by his old band, New Edition, and LET'S GET THE MOOD RIGHT, which arrived in stores less than a month later, finds him mastering the simple love song.
Muze PNote There are old-school soul touches all over Gill's romantic crooning on this one. "Touch" is based on the O'Jays' "Cry Together," from which it heavily samples, and Gill ends up inhabiting the O'Jays' old turf. On "Simply Say I Love U," he duets with his friend Stevie Wonder. Producers Tony Rich, Babyface and R. Kelly surround Gill--who also plays guitar, bass and keyboards--with a gentle R&B sound that highlights Gill's talents that much more.

Muze PNote Johnny Gill released his fifth album, Let's Get the Mood Right, only a few months after he participated in the New Edition reunion. In other words, it was timed to cash in on the group's massive comeback success. If he had delivered a dud, such crass commercial planning would have been in poor taste, but it's his strongest album in years, thanks to an excellent selection of songs and a stellar cast of producers, including Babyface, Tony Rich, and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Gill shines at smooth soul like the title track, but what is remarkable about the album is how comfortable he sounds with the uptempo, albeit low-key, dance numbers. It's his best, most consistent album since Johnny Gill. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
