Labour of Love II downplays the band's driving horn section in favor of sterile keyboards and electronic percussion replaces acoustic. Covers of R&B chestnuts "Here I Am (Come and Take Me)" and "The Way You Do the Things You Do" are enjoyable enough, but the band has a harder time adding much to the reggae-sourced numbers. Only the Heptones' wonderful "Baby" gets a decent workout, with the rest only serving as reminders of how well the originals were written.
