My FAVE LP From Angie!
H. Busala | Harlem | 05/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"{{I've Learned to Respect (The Power of Love)}}That song have a very spiritual meaning, really moving too! Angela Winbush wrote that song in 1976 for Alton McClain & Destiny and then it was topped in the charts in 1986 by Stephanie Mills. Finaly, Angie sang it in her 1989 release Its The Real Thing. Personaly, I can't figure out which one is the betta version! Stephanie or Angela? I saw both ladies on the Apollo back in 2000 and they broke down while pre4ming that #. They tore the roof and people of all ages were crying after they finished the song. I heard Angela's version last night and I noticed that while singing that tune at the end she hollered "Stephanie, let me tell ya about that power!" like both ladies have witnessed the same pain and only BOTH know what went down in their struggles. Very Well produced LP and the lyrics are jawdropping! "Precious" is my FAVE jame from there."
A Lost Treasure Deserving of Discovery
Reginald D. Garrard | Camilla, GA USA | 12/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have yet to understand why the wife of superstar Ronald Isley has not received her due recognition. As a songwriter, she is in a class by herself and her distinctive voice is easily recognizable to all familiar with it. This late 80's gem is worth the purchase. The exemplary cuts are "Lay Your Troubles Down," performed with husband Isley, "Ménage a Trois," and the hit "I've Learned to Respect (the Power of Love)." C'mon, folks, the title says it all. Y'can't get "realer" than this."
A Premiere Album For A Diva Of Such Magnitude
AJ Campbell-Vordeaux | 05/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Angela Winbush by far is one of the most underrated singer/songwriter/producer of our time. Just when music was in a state of flux between gangsta rap and hip hop, Angela gave us an album of pop/ r&b sensibilities in "The Real Thing". Produced by her and executive produced by husband of the moment
Ronald Isley. Every song is top notch. Slinky, sexy and smooth. Everything from The Real Thing to I'll Never Be The Same is hot. Menage A Trois is a song about threesomes which she is not agreeing with. Why have three when you can have her?
I Learned To Respect The Power Of Love is a sensual track about the joys and pains of love. To me, I think Stephanie's version is a way lot better than hers due to the instrumentation. Angela's is wholesome while Stephanie's is more spiritually based. Overall, this is a dime album. Get it! Grade: A+++++"
