"First off I have to say Midnight Star and Atlantic Star ARE NOT the same group!They may dress alike and have similar cover art but couldn't be more different.Anyway 'Headlines' is the last Midnight Star album featuring the brothers Calloway and it shows.The material here bears more similarity to that of Ready For The World and other mid 80's dance-funk groups,notably on the two best songs 'Midas Touch' and 'Engine Number 9'.The styles vary though from hard edged electro-funk to dance-pop and THAT'S what made the Calloway's so great-they could have a distinctive sound AND be diverse all at once.I don't think I'll get any arguements here that Midnight Star lost most of it's individuality after this album and this is the last time most fans will find their music of any interest.So happy listening!"
