Bobby Brown: Bobby (1992)

By Scott Goldfine

Former New Edition frontman Bobby Brown comes forth with “Bobby,” the oft-delayed successor to 1988’s smash “Don’t Be Cruel.” Principally produced by hitmakers Teddy Riley and L.A. Reid & Babyface, the LP is full of danceable R&B. Brown is flamboyant, but merely a passable singer, and the material is spotty.

Best are the George Clinton-inspired “Get Away” and the Marvin Gaye-like “Good Enough.”
