I hadn't listened to this since the mid-80s, and recently bought a used copy of the cassette and boy did it hold up to the test of time, musically speaking. What an amazing album. While Shannon's vocals aren't anything spectacular, they're good enough to catch yourself belting out the lyrics along with each listen. The arrangements are fresh, even by today's standards. Why can't there be music like this on the radio today? Despite its age, it doesn't sound dated to me. Songs like Give Me Tonight and My Heart's Divided could easily blend in today's catalog, and stand apart from the Rhianna's and the Sia's of the world. While there have been MANY reissues and remixes of the title track over the years, the original (and the remix included on this release) are in no need of being fixed. Each song stands on its own and requires nothing else to make them groove-worthy. On top of the great music, the sound quality of my cassette is particularly surprising. Very clear and crisp for a 33 year old tape. I'll be playing this one for a long time to come.
