OMG!!! First of all, I Never, Ever, Ever, thought I would get my hands on this LP, and found it for a rightest price too!!!! With all that said, this was the first album without member, George "Smitty" Smith, who died sadly after a sudden illness. As the notes on the back of the album pointed out, the Manhattans had definitely paid serious dues before this album. And it didn't hurt by adding the singer in Gerald Alston, who would almost single handedly took them to a level that I don't think they even know would go. With all that said, this album is fantastic!!! With songs like, "It's The Only Way", "One Life To Live", and the title track, shows why they were the Kings of the Slow Jams. Even though that's true, they also have great uptempo songs here. "Back Up", Strange Old World, and "I Can't Stand For You To Leave Me", show how versatile they really were. Throughout their career, they had plenty of fast songs like these, but unlike groups like "The O'Jays" and "the Spinners", it seams like they were not allowed to branch out into that territory. Even if that's the case thought, this album was a stepping stone for the success they would experience for the next 15 years, and is definitely worth checking out!!!!
