The sound of R&B as we know it today owes nearly every distinction to the guys in Guy -- Teddy Riley, Aaron Hall, and Damion Hall. That's everything, from K-Ci & JoJo to the Backstreet Boys. Returning after an almost ten-year absence since THE FUTURE, Riley has dubbed this third collaboration of golden voices and funky beats not a reunion or a comeback but a "homecoming" -- an attempt, it seems, to corral R&B's current identity problem and reinstate the supremacy of New Jack Swing as the modern foundation of soul. Tracks like "Do It" and "Dancin' " will no doubt move folks to the dance floor, making a strong argument for the cause, while the smooth instrumentation and buttery vocals on "We're Coming" and "Why You Wanna Keep Me from My Baby" testify to the righteousness of Guy's mission. In its best moments, III holds its own in a world of contemporary hip-hop and R&B, despite a few obvious attempts to keep up with the times (see "Love on Line," which incorporates the sound of fingers hitting a computer keyboard and the eerie AOL "You've got mail. . ." intro). Still, "Teddy's Jam (3)," a live incarnation of the trio's signature classic, works both as a timely revival for those who remember when "Groove Me" and "Don't Clap...Just Dance" ruled the dance floor and as the perfect lesson for schooling neophytes to New Jack in all its glory.
