After the disappointing performance of 1984's "Cats Without Claws" and the alleged "AIDS is God's punishment"-statement, it would be another three years before a new Donna Summer-album was released. Another Michael Omartian-collaboration had been rumoured, but "All Systems Go" saw Summer return with former Giorgio Moroder-protegé Harold Faltermeyer who had co-written "Hot Stuff" and worked with her on "Bad Girls", her most successful album. Unfortunately, the new album sold even worse than "Cats", even failing to crack the US Top 100.

"All Systems Go" (written by Faltermeyer and Summer) was a promising opening track with Summer's trademark vocals and strong hooks although only a modest hit when released as the second single. A Richard Perry-production, "Dinner With Gerschwin", was favoured as the lead-single instead. Written by Brenda Russell, it was an unusual song, but it returned Summer to the UK Top 20 where it peaked at #13.

Easily the best track on the whole album is "Voices Cryin' Out" on which Summer's voice soars marvellously on a strong melody evoking Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time". Also Eddie Schwarz' "Fascination" is an enjoyable mid-tempo track with a nice chorus. At the other end of the spectrum is the naff "Bad Reputation" which hasn't aged gracefully and must range as one of Summer's weakest songs ever. Why this was included and the far superior "Tearin' Down The Walls" (penned by Siedah Garrett) was not, heaven knows ... the dance track "Love Shock" and the ballads "Jeremy" and the duet with Mickey Thomas, "Only The Fools Survive", are more run of the mill, though still enjoyable.

"All Systems Go" is by no means Donna Summer's strongest album but despite its so-so tracks, it does have some good moments that merits its purchase.
