Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Ashford & Simpson came up with an intriguing tack for this early-'80s session: take a contemporary situation and use a quasi-operatic format to illuminate it. The only problem came in the execution; the songs weren't up to the concept, although most weren't terrible. They were just good, faceless urban contemporary dance and love tunes, hardly the kind of transcendent things needed to make this worthy of operatic pretensions.
