Brandy's Fine, but there's more
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Wanted to name my daughter Brandy (After the song of course) but "Karlee" won out on a toin toss with my wife.Always was interested in this "Looking Glass" band. One hit wonder? not really after hearing the the ten tracks on this CD. After one listen, you'll probably like 60-70% of it (if, you of course like the Brandy hit). Many of the other songs of similar style.Similar to? Sounds somewhat like Stonebolt, and some tracks sound somewhat like blood sweat & tears. Lite pop music. Apparently their live show was much heavier.Weakness: This band (like many bands) seems to be split by two personalities within it. Which makes the direction not too focussed. Are they lite pop, R&B, or a little heavier??Elliot Lurie made all this happen. (The obvious talent). By the way, Brandy was apparently written about a girl whos name was 'Randy.' Brandy definitely sounds more radio friendly.B. Kuz (Winnipeg, Canada)"

"While I agree that Brandy and Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne are great songs, I like the rest of the album as well. It brings back a fresher, lighter time when the world seemed like a friendly and happy place!"

""Brandy" is - simply put - one of the finest songs to come out of the early seventies. This one's got it all: raw emotion coupled with story-telling genius and musical virtuosity. It is in Looking Glass' seductive lyrics that one catches the essence of an entire era and the perfume of an entire ethic. After hearing LG, no one can ever tell me the music of the sixties wasn't going somewhere."
