The second Love & Money album , "Strange Kind Of Love" (1988) continues the Steely Dan connection, having been largely completed in the USA with the input from the Dan's producer, Gary Katz and long-time Steely Dan drummer, Jeff Porcaro. Another three chart singles emerged from the album, "Hallelujah Man","Strange Kind Of Love" and "Jocelyn Square" and kept the momentum going through 1989 and into the 90's. Their finest hour!

Classic album from the 80's

"The quality of this album is too good to put into words. It is an all time classic that blew me away when I heard it first back in the 80's, and it's impact has never left me. The music is perfect for me - going from upbeat guitar edged numbers such as "Halleluiah Man", "Strange kind of Love" and "Razors Edge" to more moody easier going rifts on "Inflammable" and "Shape of Things to Come". James Grant's vocals on all the tracks are fantastic, and the way his vocals and the music comes together on them are ingenius. I particularly love the start of "Strange Kind of Love" - the synth cords and easy guitar/bass/vocal combo always gets my goosebumps going! The lyrics are also quite poignant, with "Jocelyn Square" and "Shape of Things to Come" being two of my particular favorites for this. I bought the album on Vinyl back in the days when CDs were just emerging, but found myself woefully missing it when I retired my record player a few years back. After finally pulling my finger out, I bought a CD copy from Amazon a few days back and have not looked back since. I'm in heaven again!"

"I'm only too surprised that I haven't left a review on this album sooner! I had this on vinyl back inna day after hearing Halleluiah Man for the first time on what was the greatest radio station evah, WLIR (or were they DRE by the time this came out?). All but three of the tracks on this album are on my mp3 and are listened to every daggone day! The lyrics! The vocals and harmonies! The bass! The guitar! The drums! The Synth! All wicked and very soulful. I keep seein' Steely Dan mentioned in these reviews. I believe L&M used a producer of theirs for this album, but I don't really hear much sound-a-likeness. Back inna day, I used to confuse L&M with Hipsway. My fav songs on the album are Halleluiah Man, Avalanche... Wait. I ain't even gonna get started on that. All of the songs are above par, but those two get honorable mention. L&M are one of the handful of bands whos music gives me shivers, it's so darn good!"
