The debut album from the Minneapolis-based sextet featured the lackluster uptempo track "Are You Free," which did manage to secure the number 55 position on the charts. However, this album also featured two heart-wrenching ballads: "Breakin' My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)" and "Forever in Your Eyes." Led by Stokley Williams' animated tenor, the former is set in a suspenseful rhythm arrangement; the song builds momentum in the interlude, allowing Williams to explode vocally in an emotional testimony. The single sold over 500,000 copies, pacing the charts 34 weeks and peaking at number three and number six on the Billboard R&B and pop charts, respectively. "Forever in Your Eyes" offers another compassionate vocal delivery by Williams with similar arrangements, but still maintaining its own feeling. It inched its way to the number seven spot on the R&B charts in 17 weeks. The remainder of the album is extremely energized.
