  1. If Revelation doesn't actually hold any, well, revelations, that shouldn't be held against the band, since they do wind up turning out a perfectly acceptable mainstream dance-pop album.
  2. 60
    Of course, despite experimentation, Revelation is bloated with ballads.
  3. 60
    As lyricists (they co-wrote many of the songs on Revelation), none of the members of 98° bring to mind T.S. Eliot, even at his jiggiest. But as a vocal group, they sure can be impressive.... while Revelation is nowhere near perfect, it is at times undeniably good and quite moving.
  4. The lack of quality material here isn't the only problem with Revelation; the entire production lags as well.
  5. Despite a few feverish moments, 98 Degrees remain slightly below average.
  6. Too bad the group still winds up singing formulaic radio fodder with a near militaristic reverence.
