Album Review

Love Life, Berlin's second album, took over where 1982's Pleasure Victim left off, with Terri Nunn's vocals sounding a tad stronger in some places as well as some noticeable improvements on behalf of the synthesizers, but this improvement occurs sporadically, not consistently. Their first chart single, the clean-cut dance-rock hybrid entitled "No More Words," made it to number 23 thanks to Giorgio Moroder's production help. Moroder lends his talents to another track, "Dancing in Berlin," which emulates the same streamline formula of sharp keyboards and an animated dance pace. Outside of these two singles, the rest of the songs on Love Life fail to harbor any distinction, and even Nunn's forceful voice can't raise their value. Efforts like "When We Make Love," "Touch," and "For All Tomorrow's Lies" get lost in lukewarm techno-dance rhythms and cloned synth-driven beats. Berlin's sexual innuendoes are much too contrived, wearing thin by the end of the album, as does their attempt at combining one part rock to nine parts drum machine and dance beat. Two years after Love Life, Nunn cashed in on her vocal strengths, scoring a number one hit with "Take My Breath Away" from the Top Gun soundtrack. She then departed from the band in 1987.

Customer Reviews

Love It

Can't see where the reviewer's coming from at all. Love this album. Terri sounds great and the songs are honest and heartfelt. Not a weak spot on it except, possibly, Dancing in Berlin, which I've never been able to get into. Highlights: Touch, Rumor of Love, and For All Tomorrow's Lies. Highly recommend.

An album that gives me pleasant flashbacks

I really got into this album in the 80s and 90s, and still enjoy it. It's excellent and varied. I love her voice and unique sound. Love Life is my favorite album of Berlin's. I enjoyed various female artists around this time including Pat Benatar, Fiona (of Canada), some Joan Jett, and Patty Smythe. If you liked any of these artists, you might enjoy this album as I have. Check out the clips. My favorites are "When We Make Love," "Touch," and "Now It's My Turn."

Are you kidding?

Berlin is outrageously perfect. Love her voice and the music is timeless. Yes to this album. I'm playing it a lot again.
