Brings Back Good Memories

"My father was a big Angela Bofill fan in the 80's and he played "Teaser" constantly when I was four back in '83. I have vivid memories of "Your a Special Part of Me" and "Gotta Make it Up To You". Some twenty plus years latter those are still my favorite tracks on this album, as no one can pull a song together like Bofill. Like most of her Arista recordings this one has a lot of dance tracks that definitely show their age. Yet any Bofill fan will appreciate this effort for and most of the songs it produced. Ms. Bofill had a stroke in Jan '06, and I am sure that her legions of fans are hoping for her recovery her livelihood, and so she may sing again."
Buy it if only for "I'm On Your Side".

"While "I'm On Your Side" became a classic ballad, the rest of this album is quite disappointing in comparison to both "Something About You" and "Too Tough" because the dance tracks (which are more on the dance-rock side than R&B) are very much overproduced and lack distinction. Angela's incredible duet with Johnny Mathis ("You're A Special Part Of Me") is simply wonderful, however, and (had it been properly promoted and released as a single) may have been just what Angela needed to reach the mainstream pop market."
