EDITORS’ NOTES

With injections of ’60s girl-group panache and trippy funk, En Vogue’s second album recalibrated R&B, creating a fresh template for the genre in the ’90s. From the jazzy, doo-wop-style refrain of “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” to the classic-rock swagger of “Free Your Mind,” the wide-ranging sounds and hippie-ish vibes of Funky Divas have a loose-limbed openness that transcends the boudoir jams of the era’s contemporary soul scene.

The Best

En Vogue is easily they best female group of all time. No one else even comes close before or after. They all can sing lead AND harmonize, it's amazing! It's really too bad their egos got in the way of them continuing on much after this because they really are matchless. The only group I can think of that is a close second is Destiny's Child but they're not really that close. Anyone who even just likes this kind of music owes it to themselves to own this album. It's their best

90's R&B at its best!

I've been listening to the Funky Divas album ever since I got the cassette tape when it first dropped in '92, then later on Cd and now on mp3 format, and I never get tired of it. En Vogue is hands down the best girl group of the 90's and no other group since then can compare, and their Funky Divas album is an undeniable classic. I can't believe it's been two decades since this came out, but I will never stop listening to the funky divas of soul!

Dates a certain period of my childhood to 1992

Ok. Maybe not a perfect album, but a lot of REALLY great songs from a REALLY great time in my childhood. This album was in every jukebox. I remember going to The Wall to buy it on cassette for about $6.99 and listening to it over and over in my mono tape recorder while playing with friends. Also, I remember it being one of the better examples of Dolby when played on a proper stereo. I was 9 and couldn't afford a CD player, but it has some real punch and sounded great. ACTUALLY, all this nostalgia makes me curious to buy a new deck and run it again. No, I'll just get it on iTunes...
