REVIEWS
Average points: 4.55 (Reviews: 33)
****
Melodische Ballade, aber warum das auf Platz 1 in den USA landete, wissen die Götter (Dezember 1994).
Da waren ihre anderen Riesenhits schon von besserem Kaliber.
******
Gefällt mir auch sehr gut!
****
▓ Een ø plaatje van "Boys II Men" uit november 1994 !!! Het was tegen de kerst in Nederland een bescheiden "Hitje" !!! Verder echt niet veel bijzonders !!! (NL Top 40: 5 wk / # 18) !!!
*****
Boyz II Men haben damals alles abgeräumt in den USA und einen Song nach dem anderen auf die No.1 der Billboard Charts katapultiert. Für mich nicht nachvollziehbar, weshalb sie hier derart übersehen wurden. Zum Beispiel auch dieser Song hier, ist wirklich ein sehr schöner Song.
******
genial
**
extra-öde!
*****
wunderschön, wundert mich kein bischen dass das hier hit war, nur zurecht.
******
Wunderschön! Herausragende Nummer vom Motown Quartett (damals).
******
Ja, die Gruppe klang schon in etwa immer gleich. "End Of The Road" war aus meiner Sicht nicht nur ihr bekanntester, sondern auch ihr bester Song.
Trotzdem, die schöne Ballade "On Bended Knee", ziemlich solide gesungen, und das von einer Vocal-Gruppe, die ich nicht unbedingt als Boygroup bezeichnen würde.

edit: 5->6; einfach sehr schön.

Muy buena.

Dafür würde ich nicht auf die Knie gehen.

Recht schöne Kuschelnummer, die ich seit damals nicht mehr gehört habe. Gute Stimmen haben die Jungs ja.
******
Schöne R&B Ballade!
****
Ist ganz nett.
***
in de USA was dit een nr 1-hit, in Nederland kwam deze 2e single van "II" nog maar net tegen de top 20 in december 1994
*****
Very very nice. A big hit for them in the States.

Absoulute classic and there best!
*****
Great ballad.

ich habe in den 90er gerne R&B gehört, diese Langweiler-Formation nervte mich jedoch damals genauso wie heute – überaus langweilige Ballade – 2.5 (knapp aufgerundet mit viel Wohlwollen)...

#20 Ende November 1994 in UK...
*****
Teilweise fast schon zu schnulzig. Habe ich früher trotzdem gerne gehört.
*****
Wurde letzthin im Kaufhaus damit berieselt. Damals wie heute eine tolle Soul-Schnulze - ein unglaublicher Heuler.
*****
Nicely performed and done!
****
Etwas schnulzige Ballade aus dem Jahr 1995, die man aber dennoch anhören kann.
***
3 stars

My favourite from the guys. Vocals and instruments blend so well. Previous #1 on my personal charts. Lots of nostalgia.
*****
mooie song van de heren
****
4+

CDN: #1 (3 weeks), 1994
USA: #1 (6 weeks), 1994
*****
...sehr gut...
****
Better than their two #1 hits for sure. Not so sure why this one grabs me more though, but I can say it's a nice and pleasant listen. I know it's their style but the vocal histrionics bug me yet again, the song could really do without less of it. Also this really could've done with a trim in its length.
*****
mooie slowjam, daar kun je me voor wakker maken
****
Good easy listening track.

5 weeks in the UK top 100.

UK#20.
Ireland#24.
Iceland#25.

Zimbabwe#1 (6 weeks).

Brazil#21 of year end 1995.

16 weeks top 10. World Chart#2.
World Chart Year End (1994): #16.

The biggest selling boyband single of 1995 in the US.
