Fantastic album, and I cannot say anything that has already been said about it, HOWEVER, Why didn't Warner Bros. swap out the edited LP version for the FULL 8:21 version from the promo 12"?

Imho only ITALO DISCO connoisseurs are able to hear this influences and the feelings which came out of italy in the early 80ies. Malavasi, Romani and Gianolio did a great job and made DISCO great again! ;) ITALO DISCO ;)

One of the things that hurt me the most when I get older is seeing how I have been gathering all kind of musical tastes and influences, loving music more and more, but being the only one at that. I find it sad that most of the people that listen to this album are in one of two teams: the ones that love disco soul derived from Chic, and the ones that are fascinated by its proto italo leanings. Well, in my world of unicorns and rainbows I think that the best thing about Change is how both electro italo, italo disco and disco funk live together in the same tracks making this a very international affair that sounds everything but dated and never stops being as catchy as a Harry Warren melody. From "A lover's holiday" to "The End", a wonderful collection of songs. Though, yes, they win a lot when Luther Vandross is heard.

A true classic us-italo production, Most critics seems no to mention the great Italian contribution on this recording.

I disagree strongly with the first reviewer; this album is dynamite. Sure there are moments when it veers off into cheesy, but at it's best it's subtle and restrained, yet still irresistibly sexy and danceable. Of course Luther Vandross steals the show with his vocals on the title track - obviously the high point. Hard to believe THAT performance was before AutoTune, huh?!

My favorite and a definite crowdpleaser is "lovers holiday" and I am sure you will agree… Enjoy!

The 80s do not have time to get, that already delighted us with an album like "The Glow of Love" certainly one of the best of the '80s, as well as the entire disco. "The Glow of Love" is probably the most famous song of the group and the most famous of this album. A true classic for lovers of the genre.

This to me is one incredible album. In those days I was(and still am somewhat today I suppose), a fan of good funk. And this album - from 1980 mind you - is very funky. Every song is in a slightly different vein of something rather funky - save for "the End" (of course, its in a world of its own). Some of it is slow funk, some more like love funk, a good bit of deep funk to get you down - ah, its just funky.

This album has a bit of everything. "Angel In My Pocket" is the obligatory feel-good disco track, and "The Glow Of Love" is the funky, yet soulful vocal number. For me though, the undisputed classic from this album is "The End". A space-age, lazer-dance instrumental with possibly the most infectious melody ever recorded. It has typical 80's flamboyancy, yet is equally reserved and understated. This track was truly ahead of its time, and still sounds fresh some 25 years after its release. A huge recommendation.

Well, opposite to the above two comments i think the whole album is beautiful. My personal favorite is "Searching". A haunting electronic track which could easily be a clubbers soundtrack. On old Larry Levan tapes i've heard "It's A Girl Affair" and " Angel In My Pocket" pass by and "A Lover's Holiday" reminds me of a beautiful summer back in the eighties. "The End" is a electronic masterpiece used a lot by radio piratestations. "The Glow Of Love" makes me want to light the candles. Perhaps this record isn't a coherent whole but it is a colourful mix of different tastes from the dancescene. An icon to me.
