This set starts with a banger. All She Wants To Do Is Me, it goes as Peabo Bryson sings over a grown and sexy dance beat. It’s an early peak, thanks mostly to the sophisticated music production of Jimmy Jam And Terry Lewis. The album falters from there. Bryson has a nice voice; the women he coddles shamelessly will especially appreciate it; but these songs are far from lovable.
They’re mostly stodgy ballads riddled with bombastic declarations of “love”, the romantic kind pussy-whipped crooners like Bryson can’t seem to sing about anything other than. That includes an odd fanboy dedication to another popular soul singer, though him and Sade could make an interesting power couple. Odder is the ending concert medley of old hits with Chanté Moore.
