Intimate Patti Austin

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Intimate Patti Austin draws mainly from 1981's Every Home Should Have One, 1985's Gettin' Away with Murder, 1988's The Real Me, and 1990's Love Is Gonna Getcha, with detours into the singer's appearances on Sadao Watanabe's Front Seat and Quincy Jones' From Q with Love.

Nonetheless, this Austin comp has its own character and legitimate reasons for existing, even though you'd be hard-pressed to form a comp with songs that aren't intimate. The top highlights include "Stop, Look, Listen To Your Heart," "Summer Is the Coldest Time of Year," and -- of course -- the quiet storm classic "Baby, Come to Me." Some listeners are bound to have issues with any number of the production styles here, but Austin's performances always shine through.
