Hurrah! None of these tracks compete with the single in terms of irritating tweeness, though Silent World's lyrics come close Donna's tokenistic use of squally MOR guitar (Love & Affection) can't hide the fact that these sugar-frosted, pseudo-emotive melodies are at best 'nice' & at worst musical wallpaper. \ ——————————————————————————————————1/2—— Luther Vandross: A smooth operator >>> CHECK THE SCENE ON MEGA-ZINE p442 Charts Tour Dates Gigs Digitiser

Salt'N'Pepa's Spinderella may rap on I Can't Wait No Longer, but mostly it's mid-tempo tunes, enlivened by subtle touches of swing or funk and, natch, the Big Ballad (Goin' out Of My Head). Luther's rich, relaxed vocals course confidently throughout. Someone should buy the man a dictionary, mind. We all know it's spelt 'lurve'.  ——————————————————————————————————2/2—— Donna Lewis' album: What's it for? >>> ALL THE LATEST CHARTS p625 Charts Tour Dates Gigs Digitiser
