"Finally managed to get this out of print CD! Great songs, especially the duet with David Gates, titled "Wish We Were Heroes". A truly 80s classic!"

"Once called by one publication "Pop's Classiest Voice," that may be a tall title to give to one person, but Melissa Manchester is certainly a person of worthy consideration for the title. An amazingly versatile singer, she threw a bit of everything into this album, and no matter what she's doing, she does it all in good taste. This album spawned the Grammy-winning smash hit "You Should Hear How She Talks About You," a bouncy piece of pop perfection. Her versatility is well showcased on the cheerful, upbeat "Looking For The Perfect Ahh," the beautiful pop ballad "Come In From The Rain," the soul-tinged ballad "Your Place Or Mine," and the jazz chanteuse styled "Someone To Watch Over Me.""
You should hear!

"Of course, this CD contains "You Should Hear how He Talks About you", a song that got me through some rough spots in the 1980s. I love the overdubbed vocals. Such a great pop song. My other favorite on this one is "Hey your place or Mine" such a great R&B spot. "Come in From the Rain" is classic Melissa, a kind of singing I wish she had stuck with on her latest (2005) CD where she sings through a frog. I love her belted vocals - they push past clouds and move my personal mountains."
