5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie Cole Don't Look Back July 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a Perfect Title for Natalie Cole's 1980 Album since it is her first album of the 1980's while retaining her magic of the 1970's.The Disco side contains Don't Look Back,I'm Getting In To You,and Cole-Blooded.The R&B side contains (I've Seen) Paradise,Hold On,Someone That I Used To Love,and Beautiful Dreamer with the Jazzinest of the Ella Fitzgerald Remake of Stairway To The Stars and the Rock/Gospel tinged Danger(Up Ahead).Unfortunately this Album is not talked about enough and it is Out-Of-Print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cole Enters A New Decade with A Hit Pop Ballad! December 10, 2009
By Starr
Format:Audio CD
This studio album, Natalie Cole's 6th and first of a new decade (1980,) would show an evolution of sorts. Firstly, she would continue with the same soulful music which made her a star since her debut in 1975 with such poweful offerings as the imperative title cut as well as the torchy, "(I've Seen) Paradise" and the Quiet Storm beauty of "Hold On." THEN, she would, for the first time in her career, sink her chops into an AC ballad, Michael Masser's gorgeous, "Someone That I Used to Love" and do it with such mastery, that one would have expected even more similar musical moments here, however, such was not the case; The music as well as her public image began to show signs of incredible wear due to a serious drug addiction.

As solidly as "Don't Look Back" begins, there is one lackluster moment in "Cole-Blooded" with its goofy employment of a pun using her last name. Melodically, it's mediocre. There ARE, however, some other interesting musical moments particularly in the lush piano ballad, "Beautiful Dreamer" and in the Southern rocker, "Danger Up Ahead."

What's good about "Don't Look Back" is that she DIDN'T. She pressed on. What's bad about it is that it was poorly sequenced, thus appearing as more of a mish-mash of styles (as on her previous outing, "I Love You So") as opposed to one cohesive set of songs (like on her first five studio outings.) Given this, you end up with an album which would be her first to be certified neither Gold nor Platinum even on the strength of a huge Pop hit ("Someone That I Used to Love.")

Did she rebound? Everyone knows that she did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie! Don't Look Back! June 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I love this Natalie Cole project from 1980 because it was the first one that she decided to try different styles on one album: R&B, pop, rock, and jazz. The results are amazing. Though this may be one of her least know albums (the others being HAPPY LOVE and DANGEROUS), this set proves that Natalie could do it all. We got previews of her abilities on the NATALIE LIVE! set, but this studio effort was the first project in which she did all the songs in the studio. My favorites are "Hold On," "Someone That I Used To Love," "I'm Getting Into You," "Beautiful Dreamer," and "Danger Up Ahead." Dag, was that all the songs on the album? Well all of the songs are great!

3.0 out of 5 stars Go Ahead and look back April 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am a NATALIE COLE fanatic. I have al of her albums in both CD and LP form, save for a few. So of course I alredy love the album, but from a non-natlie cole fan, they might be dissapionted. My favorite song is a ballard, entititled "Paradsie" the second track. It reaslly captures Natalie's sooth and refine vocals. The title track "Dont look back" was also another great track with a more R&B/pop type theme. "Cole-Blooded" is a song where natalie tries to dapple in the rock type pop and somewhat suceeds. The cd has good pionts and some non-natalie cole fans would like it but this is not one of her best.
