CD Reviews

Buy it if only for "Heaven of My Life"

"A seminal R&B experiment that has been grossly overlooked, this album is a MUST have. Smooth disco /r&b soul. Track of note: "Heaven of My Life" a seemingly endless song glazed with flawless Luther Vandross vocals gliding over a frothy staccatto guitar riff. I defy anyone to remain motionless listening to this song!!"

"I had forgotten this lp from my 70's vinyl days. When it came in the mail, I put it in the CD player and was instantly transported into sunny bliss. The power of music to change one's state of mind is overstated, I think, but in the case of this recording, it's true. This music makes me happy, happy to be alive. It wasn't all the effect of nostalgia. Sure, as each track came on I was surprised at how much I remembered from 20 years ago. But there are wonderful arrangements, instrumentation, and playing on the album. The vocals are great-- an expressive male lead, choral-style, minimal-harmony female singing. The songwriting is confident and forceful. Change was a group formed in direct response to Chic, but the imitation is definitely flattering. Change took their cue from Bernard Edwards' bass playing, and give us rhythmic and melodic deep notes, and they use choral vocals in the verses. They de-emphasized the guitar and punched up the keyboards. They were clearly inspired by Chic, but produced music that stands in its own right as masterful. This album is the best of the Petrus-Malavsi productions. All the tracks are superior, with the possible exception of the one ballad (which falls just over the line into saccharine territory.) Miracles has a sound I have never tired of. Highly recommended for fans of soul, disco, or dance music."
The Very Best of Disco Ever!

"I got to know Change with the release of this album. I was in those years I myself call my prime - getting actually extremely interested in ladies. We had parties on the hills outside of Basel, the place in Switzerland I grow up. Everything was lovely, warm, cozy and strangely exciting.The only thing that's left with me - apart from endearing memories - nowadays is the music: Change's Miracles is the best of what had been going on 20 years hence. If you have any affinity to disco/funk/soul of the smooth and rich kind, I strongly recommend this record to you. It will give you hours and hours of melodic excitement, while the bass will keep you moving, hopefully together with your baby.Enjoy - they don't make records such as this anymore!"
