  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. Despite a few feverish moments, 98 Degrees remain slightly below average.
  3. Too bad the group still winds up singing formulaic radio fodder with a near militaristic reverence.
  4. 60
    Of course, despite experimentation, Revelation is bloated with ballads.
  5. The lack of quality material here isn't the only problem with Revelation; the entire production lags as well.
  6. 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.
