Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Mims f/ LeToya Luckett
Title: Love Rollercoaster
Label: Capitol Records

As the second single off Mims new album "Guilt," none too coincidentally charting at the same time the album is hitting stores, Mims is definitely trying to win back the large mainstream audience he found with "This Is Why I'm Hot." It's a new kind of Mims though - less braggadocious, more laid back, and willing to share the spotlight with a R&B singer instead of keeping it all to himself. In fact the producers known as Da Internz may have made this track a little TOO smooth. Don't get me wrong - this one's going to be a hit on urban radio and whenever it's time to grind with a honey nice and slow on the dancefloor, but Mims fans who remember him for "Hot" may find this song a little too COOL by comparison. Personally I'm going to cut Mims a break on it because I like the snap beat, the slow bass, the layered strings and the laid back rap. Whenever a song is as enjoyable for the instrumental B-side as the hip-hop A-side, you know it's one that you need in your crates. "Love Rollercoaster" fits that criteria.
