All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Barbra Streisand's first album of contemporary material in four years was a typical '80s adult contemporary superstar release, each track written and produced as a potential "power ballad" single by an extensive team of other performers, in this case including Richard Perry, Kim Carnes, Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, Jim Steinman, Albhy Galuten the Bee Gees' producer, Richard Baskin, Diane Warren, John Mellencamp, and Streisand herself.

    Emotion

    Emotion is the most "Adult Contemporary" album of Barbra. The best tracks are "Emotion", "Make no mistake, he's mine" and "Letf In The Dark"(The Three Singles Of The Album)."Emotion" is a pop song, and the other two are "Dramatic Love Songs". "Left in The Dark" remembers "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" (Jim Steinman, wrote both songs).
