Ok, I'm at a lost here. For years I steered clear from this album because I was led to believe that "I'm Every Woman" was the only song worth listening to on this album. That is A Big Fat Lie! Now, I do admit that I love Chaka with Rufus better, but this album is nothing to sneeze at. Songs like "Sleep On It", "Some Love", and "A Woman In A Man's World"(with it's Rufus flavor), holds very nicely on this album. "I Was Made To Love Him" is a little suspect, only because in my mind nobody can re-doe Stevie Wonder. With all that said, this album is so much bigger than "I'm Every Woman", it's a testament of Chaka as an artist on her own.
