 2 (number) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The glyph we use today in the Western world to represent the number 2 traces its roots back to the Brahmin Indians, who wrote 2 as two horizontal lines (it is still written that way in modern Chinese, and is analogous to the Roman numeral II).
The Gupta rotated the two lines 45 degrees, making them diagonal, and sometimes also made the top line shorter and made its bottom end curve towards the center of the bottom line.
In music, the Roman numeral ii is the supertonic scale degree, chord, or diatonic function, when distinguished II = major and ii = minor.

II is the perfect album to snuggle with your lover while you listen to tunes like " 50 candles" a soulful ballad with the classic Boyz 2 men feel to it.
Infectious rhythms and beats and some of the slickest lyrics of all time, II is a masterpiece of its own and it's a wonder that anything else R&B even came out after this because nothing can live up to this album.

My growing fear for Boyz II Men is that with each passing album they become a little bit less than the successors of New Edition, and more adult contemporary like Michael Bolton.
Not that there’s anything wrong with adult contemporary music, but with a group like Boyz II Men which has an abundant talent, you want people to be able to appreciate their craft and artistry.
Full Circle is the groups 5th full-length studio album (not including a Spanish language album, remix and Christmas album) and is probably the closest to their best album: II.

 Boyz II Men Reviews
Boyz II Men were the original, modern-day boy band, predating both 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys.
Heavily influenced by doo-wop groups such as the Platters and the Dells and developed by ex-New Edition member Michael Bivins, Boyz II Men quickly rose to heavyweight status after the foursome's 1991 debut, Cooleyhighharmony, their success based on romantic ballads and strong vocals.
Bursting with the airtight harmonies, feet-sweeping melodies, and scrub-free swagger the foursome from Philly's come to be known for, Boyz II Men aren't taking any chances with Full Circle, their sixth studio album (and their first on Antonio "L.A." Reid's Arista label).

Their third album (Tres Hombres) gained them national attention with the hit "La Grange," a signature riff tune to this day, based on John Lee Hooker's "Boogie Chillen." Their success continued unabated throughout the '70s, culminating with the year-and-a-half-long Worldwide Texas Tour.
By their next album, Eliminator, and its worldwide smash follow-up, Afterburner, they had successfully harnessed the potential of synthesizers to their patented grungy blues-groove, giving their material a more contemporary edge while retaining their patented Texas style.
Their third album, Tres Hombres, was a powerful, exciting set that drew from delta music and high-energy rock.

 CANOE -- JAM! Music - Artists - Boyz II Men Album Review: NATHAN/MICHAEL/SHAWN/WANYA
Three years after the release of their last album, Evolution, the R&B foursome that helped spawn the boy band extravaganza currently clogging up the pop charts is back with one stylin' mother of a makeout hit machine.
In fact, like their offspring, 98*, Boyz II Men kick off their latest with an uptempo Latin-tinged track called Beautiful Women (it's a La Vida-fied Hey Ladies).
The more mature crew set the bar a little higher and swing a little cooler with the beautiful finger-snap ballad Dreams, the doo-wop of I Do (sure to be the first dance at weddings for years to come) and Step On Up, a funked-up disco track that should have more than a few bodies movin'.
