Album Review

Luther Vandross was riding high in the 1980s, dominating the R&B charts and slowly, but steadily, increasing his pop exposure. This was his fourth consecutive platinum smash and second straight double-platinum winner, but beyond that was a superbly sung, expressive triumph. "Stop To Love" and "Give Me The Reason" were beautifully produced, arranged, and performed numbers and huge R&B hits (the latter a chart topper), and deserved a better pop fate.

Cool Album

I remember I was eleven years old when this album dropped!My father had the cassete tape!At night time I would grab that tape and listen to it on my walkman cassete player!Luther sounded so great and vocaly!
