Toooooo smoooooth

This was the album that caused my interest in Ambrosia to diminish. Gone were the incredibly ambitious, progressive sounds that made "Time Waits for No One" and "Cowboy Star" so amazing. Instead, "One Eighty" reinvented Ambrosia as a hit machine that depended too much on smooth pop and slick R&B to retain any real credibility with the audience that had been drawn to the band's first three albums. Still, I have to admit that "You're the Only Woman" and "Biggest Part of Me" made for some mighty fine ear candy. Beautifully recorded, performed and produced, they did demand attention. Unfortunately, the other seven songs here are forgettable -- and "forgettable" was something Ambrosia never had been before this album.

Almost wore this out on my turntable...

I loved this album right from the get-go. I heard "You're the Biggest Part of Me," on top 40 radio and knew I would like this Band/LP. My favorite tracks are "Cryin' in the Rain," and "Living on My Own." On the latter, lead singer David Pack's voice shines. When he sings, "She came into my life..." I get goose bumps because Pack's voice is so beautiful. Many would argue that Ambrosia sold out on this LP and went for more of a Top 40 feel. I would argue that the album has songs that are radio friendly and sonically pleasing. To most music lovers, that's a good thing.
