At a friend's 40th birthday party this year, all of a sudden "Ain't Nobody Better" was played. Let me tell you, these dinosaurs (including myself) got their carcasses up and began flailing themselves about as if it was 1989 all over again. I had to find this album.
There is not one single disappointing track. "The Power of Passion" may be a bit much, however, it's better than any Trance song ever forced on the unsuspecting public. "Do You Love What You Feel" to me is the best on this imcomparable CD. "Big Fun" and "Good Life" just dare you to keep sitting down without wanting to walk the runway. It's hard to believe that only two people made this classic.
Dance music today is soooo ordinary. If you want a reason to dance buy this CD! THIS is what dance music is supposed to be!
"Do You Love What You Feel," a remake of the Rufus and Chaka Khan hit, came along next with that distinctive Inner City sound. The single furthered the duo's niche in the house/club mixes--yet, U.S. radio chose to forsake it. "Ain't Nobody Better" became the final initial release of the album, heralding more club play.
Although "Power Of Passion" is Inner City's ballad for this project, later pressings of this Virgin Records product featured the remake "Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'" as track four. "Lovin'," first made famous by R&B singer Stephanie Mills, was remixed by Def Mix Productions, b.k.a. Frankie Knuckles and David Morales, into a lush mid-tempo house groove, complete with a tambourine and mellow bassline. The song was subesequently released as a single and included on the later pressings of the full-length album.
Perhaps "Power of Passion" slowed the album down, or took something away from it, hence, the possible explanation of its subsequent removal. "Passion" may come across incoherent to the casual listener, given Paris' moaning vocal delivery.
Overseas, however, "Paradise" reigned surpeme, garnering significant club play.Read more ›
great to see others wrote reviews, though an old album, it's appeal seems timeless. i haven't listened to this cd in years now, and i put it in to drive to and WOOOOOOOO, i forgot the connection i made in my mind when i first heard them, and still kinda hear (though it's a reverse comparison), it would be, don't get angry, dee-lite(shh did he? oh my? how dare you!), this in the sense that dee-lite in essence were an electronic soul dance group, that ventured into breakbeats, trance, dnb, but in the beginning on world clique some of the ambitions heard THERE can be heard realized HERE.
great sound, good to drive to, her voice is more soulful than usually heard on electronic dance albums, it adds ummmppphhh.
