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!

Yeah just listened to it again. Well they have clearly listened to Kraftwork and Moroder, like I said I'm not saying it's a bad track, in fact it's quite ahead of it's time. I just didn't get your dismissal of the rest of the LP. Maybe we are coming from different directions but I'm coming as an 80's London soulboy (and I think it's a classic album) through the early electro, hip-hop and Acid House and Detroit and European techno scene. Of course most EDM (lets call it techno) is crap now as the majority of the kids wouldn't know have a clue about the roots of it in Disco and Electro, Cybotron, Model 500 etc. They are just using emulators instead of the hardware which sounds a hell of a lot better and are just copying what everyone else is doing. That's why of you go to a club now in the UK all you here is a boring seamless mix of electronic nothingness, no melodies, no peaks etc. Fuck it, it's been going here since '88. It's about time it's had it's day. The last outstanding techno night I went to here was Jimmy Edgar from Detroit who has taken over the Derrick May/Juan Atkins baton. Tbh the most interesting production at the moment is on the Underground hip-hop scene by Jeremiah Jay, Madlib, Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, Blu etc.

To the person who said it's 'dated', 'radio friendly' etc. what on earth are you on about? 'The Glow Of Love', 'Angel In My Pocket' 'Lovers Holiday' etc. You may as well say that everything is dated. The massively overrated Daft Punk just made what was a Chic song. And to be brutally honest the most dated sounding track on the album is 'The End', but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. The Early 80's was when Disco was at it's best - like post-punk is more interesting than punk, you could call it post - disco. Listen to Weeks and Co - Go With The Flow of Hi Voltage - Let's Get Horny and most early 80's Salsoul.

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.

Most of this album is smooth, mainstream, radio-friendly disco. Very dated, in my opinion, and not really my thing. The reason I have this, though, is for the last track. 'The End' is an amazing space-disco instrumental. It compares with the best work of Giorgio Moroder, Ganymed, Space, Laser, Harry Thumann, Automat, etc.
