Unquestionably this was an album packaged for popular consumption. Yet the flagship tune, Feels So Real still sounds as fresh as the day I first heard it on WBLS in New York. No doubt back then, it also some serious club play as well. After all, that's what it's supposed to do. But the album has many musical moments as well. I know because I bought it soon after and played the mess out of the cassette.

Not a bad album especially if you like the feel of being on the highway HEADING to a dance club in Miami on a late afternoon in 1984. For lovers of programmed drums, you could possibly speed this up to be some enjoyable electro funk! I definitely prefer the organic sounds of "Straight From The Heart". This is all a point of view in retrospective, as I'm sure the production of this album was ambitious at the time. Nice funky bass at least and a feel good, laid back & relaxed feel. 3/5 IMO (I'm sure it suits someone's niche! The programmed beats are pretty cool after all.)
