"Lil Louis struck gold by signing a deal with Epic records in 1989. This resulting album showcases what Chicagoans (like myself) knew all along -- this guy has skillz! Louis was always a phenomenal dj and his first few releases on the independent Dance Mania label created a buzz in the Chicago underground dance scene. 1989 was the year in which Louis (and Chicago) would take things to the next level. "French Kiss", one of my favorite tracks (and EPs) of all time, was the catalyst for the growing national interest in Chicago House. The album version is more commercialized with the added vocals but is still able to get the blood pumping. "Wargames", also in a "second" remixed form (and also from the original "French Kiss" EP), is another dance-floor-packer. Other preferred tracks are "I Called U" (something that the guys can definitely relate to) and the sleeper of the whole album: "Nyce And Slo". And then there are a couple of slower tempo tracks to add balance. Basically this is a great introductory album for Lil Louis to "show the rest of the world how we party"."

"I don't like the way this cd was laid out. It's a mixmatch free-for-all, bipolar in nature. There are way too many styles here, some dance, some r n b, some ballads, some instrumental, and some bluegrass?? What!!?? I am also hugely dissapointed that "French Kiss" is NOT the version they used to play in the clubs. I wanted to throw the cd against the wall when I heard it. I wanted the French Kiss Long Vocal version!!! It's nearly impossible to find. I used to have it on vinyl but my brother stole all my records. The version they have on here is arranged poorly with the orgasms at the beginning, and some unnecessary chatting, and it stops then speeds up, then slows down some more, and on and on. Come on Lil Louis what's up? It seemed like Lil Louis was experimenting alot on most of the tracks, like he was in his infancy stages as an artist. The only other tracks I sort of like are "It's the only Thing" and "The Luv U Wanted" is pretty good. The rest I skipped over because they got annoying. This is yet another one of those cds where the artist should have kept it consistant. Keep it all dance. The whole cd should have been "French Kiss" type club music, then this would have been a classic. I hate it when artists try and prove themselves by covering like 10 genres of music. If your good at one thing and it works and sounds good, own it. I wish Lil Louis would put out a greatest hits with all house club remixes, ALL OF IT."
