Album Review

Ex-Gong Show contestant Cheryl Lynn hit paydirt with her self-titled debut album for Columbia. "Got to Be Real," one of those unavoidable disco-era hits — thanks to its instantly memorable bassline and Lynn's alternately soaring and barely contained giddiness — is one of the few singles of its level of success (number one black singles, number 11 club play, number 12 pop) to decrease in value with over-saturation. Thanks to that song and the multi-tiered "Star Love," Cheryl Lynn reached number five on the black albums chart and provided the artist with her time in the spotlight.

A strong debut that benefits from assured ease.
