    I totally agree. However, I strongly feel that New Edition sounded much, much better —— in general, as a group —— after Bobby Brown left and Johnny Gill took his place. The unique development of their whole musical sound (as themselves, rather than their directly copycatting off of The Jacksons’ earlier “ ‘Motown’-era” sound), the content/subject matter of their songs’ lyrics, EVERYTHING had changed about them, since they matured and grew up from the little children they once were, and developed into the MEN they became. My most favorite songs of N. E. are, “Can You Stand the Rain?” and “Home Again.” I just L-O-V-E these songs; Both of them are great.

    Yet, we hear Michael’s strong influence on the style of Ralph Tresvant’s vocals, big time. What’s interesting to me, though, is that Ralph’s voice had really deepened a lot (sounding very much like the Baritone his voice developed into, rather than that of a much higher pitch/tone), yet, it still is recognizable as himself.
