    TLC are the second most successful girl group of all time (after the Spice Girls) and this record proves that their winning formula still works.

    TLC's letting-go is bittersweet and good, a sometimes somber, sometimes playful requiem for their time together (and with us).

    Sure, it’s nowhere in the same league as the seminal CrazySexyCool and the innovative concept album FanMail, and the absence of Left Eye--apart from a touching brief posthumous appearance on “Interlude”--is still keenly felt. But there are still a handful of tracks here which can sit comfortably alongside their incredible mid-late 90s canon.

    2017's TLC are clearly more comfortable reminiscing, making their good-natured fifth less futureshock, more time machine. [Aug 2017, p.89]

    There's a cheesy feel to many tracks but it's good fun, delivered with Chilli's soaring harmonies tempering T-Boz's throaty growl. [Aug 2017, p.112]

    Overall, a solid album, just not quite up to the legacy.

    TLC succeeds only to the extent that it captures the sound and style of the group's golden era, but absent of Left Eye's signature swagger; though T-Boz and Chilli are in fine voice, the group's success largely relied on the delicate balance of all three members.

At the same time, tracks like "Way Back" and "American Gold" seems very actual and good for the charts. It's not their best album, of course, but it's very TLC! Expand

    Finally, a new album of one of the best Girlbands of the 90th.
    The hits of 90th (here as a remastered version) still are virtually on the first day. The new songs sway between enough and property. This pulls the album under it, however a good comeback remains at the end.
