    Even with the monster jams "Do You Love What You Feel" and "Any Love", this is a very lackluster effort by Rufus. I blame this on several factors: One, Chaka Khan was doing very well in her solo career, and being recongnized for it(as well she should). Two: Members of the band were coming and going, and Three: instead of the group producing their own material, Producer Extrodinare, Quincy Jones had that job. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't blame it totally on "Q", I just feel that beyond maybe 4 songs, it just doesn't mesh well. I guess that's what happens when there are changes in a group constantly, and for Rufus, it took it's toll. Still, it's an ok set.

      Very good and nice album. This album tastes like more. I got a hold of a copy in 1984. Really liked it. For me "Any Love" stands out. Mellow song with a strong vocal string on it. Very groovy & mellow yet powerfull.
      Also "Do You Love What You Feel" is worth listening to. Very groovy and strong album.
