How does an act follow a monumental novelty hit like "Who Let the Dogs Out?" By packing its next album with enough beat-laden, candy-coated jams to send the average listener into sugar shock.

How does an act follow a monumental novelty hit like "Who Let the Dogs Out?" By packing its next album with enough beat-laden, candy-coated jams to send the average listener into sugar shock. While there's nothing here even remotely as electric or as memorable as "Who Let the Dogs Out?," there's plenty of playful, fairly innocuous fodder. Ironically, the Men are most effective on such lower-key material as the reggae-splashed "Rich in Love" and the old-school soul ballad "I Thank Heaven." It's when they push too hard (as on the wildly self-conscious "Giddyup" and "We Rubbin' ") that Move It Like This starts to falter. It's proof that you can't recreate magic. You can only move forward and hope that something new and exciting happens naturally.—LF
