Blackstreet has stayed true to the elements which have carried the group to the status it now enjoys.
All of the songs are essentially romantic works, with little effort wasted on the pompous showboating that many similar artists incorporate into their work.
In addition to building upon the foundations which made Blackstreet popular, the group has also shown that it can expand their music-making repertoire.

By early 2001, Teddy Riley’s yearning to reform BLACKstreet had became a serious impediment to progress on the solo album he was working on.
The sweltering intensity of BLACKstreet’s vocal performance, coupled with the track’s pulsating rhythms and G-funk-infused sonics (including a cameo from Dr. Dre), propelled the song to #1 (Hot 100) and platinum certification.
According to the members of BLACKstreet, the variety of sounds heard on Level II goes a long way toward explaining its appeal.

Whilst most of the songs on this album would not be on Blackstreet's greatest hits if the group were to create one tomorrow, it wouldn't be because most of the songs on this album are bad, it is just that the group has had so many great songs in the past.
The group's 4th album, Level II, is a must for any music lover who enjoys an album that is a mix of slow, medium and fast paced songs, produced by a veteran and state-of-the-art producer (Teddy Riley) and sung with perhaps the best set of vocals/harmonies in the industry at the moment.

Not much, even though his latest album, which reunites the classic lineup of Blackstreet, is possibly his best since the days of the late, great R&B trio Guy.
Songs such as "Look in the Water" and "Bygones" (featuring former member Dave Hollister) are textbook revisitings of the romantic and spiritual dilemmas that fuel all classic soul.
The shame will be if the older, wiser Blackstreet is too good to make it amid the dumbed-down competition from Riley's own descendants.

Teddy Riley, one of the most innovative and successful R&B producers of the '80s and '90s, formed Blackstreet in 1994 with Chauncey Hannibal, Levi Little, and David Hollister.
Under Riley's direction, Blackstreet's smooth fusion of pop, R&B, and hip-hop became an across-the-board hit upon its release.
Another Level, featuring the monster hit "No Diggity," followed in 1996, and in 1999 the group returned with Finally.

Blackstreet: Teddy "Street" Riley, Eric "E" Williams (vocals, various instruments); Chauncey "Black" Hannibal, Mark L. Middleton (vocals).
Teddy Riley's fans were begging for a reunion of Guy, the trio with which he brought deep-soul music back to the R&B genre, but Riley chose to forge ahead with his new band, Blackstreet, instead.
The tracks here are unbelievably funky, and though two of Blackstreet's four singers have turned over since the debut--the new ones are Eric Williams and Mark L. Middleton--the vocal harmonies are breathtaking.

Powered by the massive hit single "No Diggity," "Another Level" is arguably the finest album created by Teddy Riley, the leader of Blackstreet.
Riley has masterminded an album that blends street-level rhythms with urban soul and pop crossover potential, adding two new members -- Eric Williams and Mark Middleton -- to the lineup in order to position Blackstreet as an heir to the classic R&B vocal group tradition.
The reallignment works, since the group sounds fuller and more eclectic with the two added voices.
