Format:Audio CD
Why are the reviewers bagging on Chaka's amazing, underrated cover of MY LOVE IS ALIVE? As produced by Arthur Baker collaborator JOHN ROBIE, MY LOVE IS ALIVE is MY favorite track on the entire CD, even better than I FEEL FOR YOU - Why? Robie's brilliant, minimal, Soulsonic Force-style grooves/edits provide TENSION against the fiery, fierce vocal ab libs of CHAKA - simply put, CHAKA HITS NOTES THAT AREN'T IN THE BOOK!!
In an age when most singers get by on flat, breathy lip-syncs, this CD harkens back to the old-school days when singers SANG! What is sad today is that most talented, influential singers like Chaka wouldn't even chart now! Other tracks shines also in a similar 80s electro/funk mode, THIS IS MY NIGHT, EYE TO EYE, and more - I got this LP when it FIRST came out and wore it out DJing at high school dances - two decades later, it's one of Chaka's most consistent, ground-breaking, most purely LISTENABLE albums she's ever recorded - Chaka has great taste in producers (Green Gartside of Scritti Politti, Arif Mardin, et al.), but WHERE IS A NEW CHAKA CD FOR US FANS? Please please please - let's not wait til 2005!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Slick...A True 80's Classic...Let It Shine February 2, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Chaka...the voice of an era. When people actually sung, and even with this electronic masterpiece her voice is number one. If you're not grabbed by "This is my Night" somethings wrong with you. All the songs have some form of scratching or sampling, and a lot of clean early hip-hop elements. They all fit very well with the Stevie Wonder blow you away harmonica solo on "I Feel For You" A lot of people complain that this record has not held up too well, but I think it has because the fact that it is an early digital recording proves that a 20 year old CD can still out "bump" some newer music. I listened to this 12 years ago while raiding my parents tapes...i reveled in the Donna Summer, Whispers, early Madonna, Rufus, Queen, Invisible Mans Band, and Teena Marie for years. I finally decided to get my favorites on CDs, and was lucky to find all or most of them in my local Rasputin Music (the best used store EVER!) I found this bad boy brand new for $7.50. I was blown away by how clean and well transfered it sounded, and how well it had aged. I still cant get over how well done this CD is. If you're lucky enough to discover it, be sure to. I'm only 17 and it's one of my all time favorites. This is the kind of hip-hop I like! Go Chaka!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chaka Takes The Love Song To Another Level January 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album was basically a work of art from one of the best female vocalists of our time. Chaka's voice on classics such as "I Feel For You", "Stronger Than Before" and "Through The Fire" simmers with passion and fire. She is truly one of the most underappreciated artists in music history. The recent use of "Stronger Than Before" on Showtime's mini-series "A Girl Thing" during the lesbian love scene between Kate Capshaw and Elle McPherson really showed the intensity and spark of that classic love song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chaka's most famous December 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Chaka Khan's "I Feel For You" was more or less her comeback as a solo artist, as her four previous album, 1982's "Chaka Khan", failed to produce more than a moderate hit. Essentially, Chaka hadn't had a major hit since 1978's "I'm Every Woman", besides some of the Top Ten R&B hits she garnered in the early 1980's, and "Ain't Nobody", the hit she had with Rufus in 1983. Chaka herself says she was surprised when "I Feel For You" broke into the mainstream in a big way in 1984. This is not Chaka's best album, but it is full of all the things that make Chaka such a great artist: slick material, innovation, and of course her powerful voice.
The album spawned three hit singles: the title track, "Through The Fire", and "This Is My Night". ("Eye to Eye" was a single in the U.K.) "Through The Fire" is the only bona-fide ballad on the album, and sings of a powerful love with heavy percussion and intense melody. (I often think that this song is the way God would speak to me, and the choruses would be my response to Her.) The last high notes from Chaka in the song are the icing on the cake. To me, it's more than a pop song. "I Feel For You" is great in the sense that it is a hybrid; the song itself was a previous R&B hit for Prince, a little classic Soul is thrown in with Stevie Wonder's harmonica, a Rock guitar, and a Pop beat. Let's not forget the rap by Grandmaster Melle Mel. So many elements are mixed and produce a memorable song, a feat Chaka has accomplished many other times. "This Is My Night" is a standard '80's dance tune, with just about all sounds being synthesized with the exception of Paul Pesco's guitar. Even so, it's great ear candy that simply makes you feel good. The swinging "Eye to Eye" is another great song, with a choir on the chorus and a mournful melody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 80's Grooves April 20, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was 16 when this album came out. Brings back great memories. This is my favourite Chaka Khan album, with This Is My Night as my favourite track. Eye To Eye, written by Michael Sembello (She's A Maniac) is my second favourite. Other highlights are of course I Feel For You and Through The Fire, written by David Foster, which closely resembles another classic balad "After The Love Has Gone, which he wrote for Earth, Wind & Fire. This album is typically 80's sounding because of the heavy use of early analog Synthesizers and 8-bit samplers and drum-machines, thus making it an 80's essential. Some tracks are dull, but overall there's some slick and inovative stuff on this album, especially for that era. If you are looking for that typical 80's groove, then this is a must have album.
