Hey, it worked for the Isley Brothers, why not for the Temptations? On PHOENIX RISING, the group that virtually defined the Motown sound in the '60s reinvents itself as a contemporary R&B band, complete with subtle drum machine tracks, tight, processed-sounding vocal harmonies and an almost obsessive focus on matters romantic. While David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks passed away long before the recording of this comeback album, the remaining original members, augmented by some talented new faces, keep the flame of soulful, heartfelt R&B alive. There's little evidence of the group's old sound on PHOENIX RISING, but that just means they're not prepared to condemn themselves to the oldies circuit. Think of this not as a continuation of the past, but as a new beginning. Did we mention that it beats the hell out of R. Kelly?
