Take It to Heart

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Griggs
Songs about matters of the heart are Michael McDonald's bread and butter. In fact, the word "heart" is used several times on this and other McDonald releases another of the artist's favorite words is "fool," which is nowhere to be found on this album. Highlights include "Get the Word Started," "No Amount of Reason," and the title track, which was a minor hit. Take It to Heart is a bit overproduced at times, but overall it is a nice set by the golden voiced Michael McDonald.

    I Love It!!

    I have a huge appreciation for his voice. This is a good album if you're sensitive enough to handle it. I love it, and Jeff Porcaro is one of my favorite drummers. You gotta love the whole Toto feel to some of this.
