"Company B is proof that the music industry doesn't work like it should. This was a group with talented vocals and excellent compositions, and it sank without a ripple. "Jam on Me" is an example of this.
I think the best tracks are the first (Goddess of Love) and final (Fascinated). Lori L is lead vocal on both, and both showcase her voice wonderfully. In both songs, Lori's voice is best described as a seductive coo.
In "Goddess of Love", this gentle delivery contrasts amusingly with the song's very aggressive lyrics--at one point, she announces "I'm not gonna let you be/Until you give it to me." Lucky guy.
Unfortunately, this song also has a male vocal that has been electronicized into an annoying kazoo sound, and it detracts badly.
"Fascinated" also has a contrast, this time with Lori's own voice. The bulk of the song is performed in the aforesaid coo, but during the chorus her delivery becomes much stronger, almost brassy. This was Company B's debut single back in 1987, and it immediately made a fan of me.
All the music was written and performed by Ish, and he did an excellent job. Ish knows how to make a composition complex without letting the instruments interfere with each other, or with the singer. At no point in any of the songs does the music smother the singer's voice or become muddled.
This is a good product. Buy it. Play it. Love it."
A CDR - Are you kidding me?

"I purchased this release and was surprised to find that it was a CDR release. The CD comes with inserts as expected, but the disc itself is a silver CDR with simple black printing. I know that there are many smaller labels that release this way, but I was surprised to find out that this was a CDR. Shame."
Great! Fun to dance to and have stuck in your head.

"I think this band is an aquired taste, but once you aquire that taste...Mmmmmmm it tastes good. The instumental was especially well done. My favorite song is "Take a walk on the Wild Side." It's peppy music. Makes you just wanna tap your toes. It'a the kind of music that you don't mind having stuck in your head."
