"If you haven't purchased an Evelyn King CD and you want one with every cut being good? This is the one. We live in a day when half a CD is good and the other half is usually so so but this CD is good from begining to end."

"Who doesn't like Evelyn "Champagne" King? She'd always put out plenty good music back in the day I was more than happy to find "Back to love" which didn't get enough radio play nor would you find it on any of her "best of" series. A true rare find. If you're REALLY old school, I can tell you this cd provides the lyrics which rates this cd a 10. You won't be disappointed buying this cd."

"This is the fifth E.C.K. album and the 4th to go Gold (preceded by "Smooth Talk," 1977, "Music Box" 1979 and "I'm in Love" from 1981. Mighty M Productions are back with her, as is Kashif and Paul Laurence Jones III. The sound is polished to a tee and the vocals sweetly sung in a high register than on the predecessor. Rumour had it then that Kashif was repulsed by Evelyn's lower register saying that he thought she "sounded like a man." This always perplexed me because her voice has paved the way for such artists as Toni Braxton and Monica, to name only a couple. Besides, she didn't sound like a man; she's an alto. Did Phyllis Hyman sound like a man? Did Anne Murray sound like a man? Then 'nuff said. They're women with alto voices, and those very voices are supremely sexy! I won't carry on about the content of this album because others have reviewed it quite extensively already. I will only add that the hits are/were "Love Come Down," the MONSTER of the album, "Betcha She Don't Love You," the second consecutive monster and the title cut. My favorites aside of the hits are "Stop That" and "Back to Love," which were more than certainly qualifiable to have been singles as well."
