    Holy crap - just hearing Without Love for the first time and I thought it was a cover or maybe an original of the song “Storm” by Rare Silk. But I think they’re totally unrelated. Crazy how similar they sound.

      A near-perfect debut album from a very talented Artist/Multi-instrumentalist! He really nailed it with every song on here. The hits are great, but don't sleep on album cuts like "For your Love", "You should do it", & "Without love".
      Even more remarkable is that Peter played nearly all the keys/synths/drums on this, except for horns and the piano solo on "Dance with Me"--that was his songwriting partner Robert Rans, who along with Peter ended up composing Madonna's signature song a few years later-"Material Girl".

        An underrated gem of the '70's. Strong songs. Three huge hits and the remaining songs all stand on their own. This album had such an impact on me as a young teen. Listening to it takes me right back to summer camp in 1978.

          This music no longer the norm, as crappy music took over. I love 'Dance with Me' and I hate the 70s are over.

            Excellent album, great depth in lyrics, musicianship and concept. Needless to say, most of it is meant to make you dance! What a concept, dance music with substance. How unlikely is that 30 years later? Not to say it doesn't exist, but boy is it rare...

              Lovers of vintage synthesizers and electronics will not be disappointed at the amount of lovely, fat analog synth timbres on this album. Nor should they be disappointed with the good - no - GREAT songwriting talent that went into its production. I don't know why this level of musicianship is no longer the norm and hasn't been for nearly twenty years - but at the time of this album, this was considered "fair" skill-wise. My personal faves are "Do Ya Wanna Get Funky With Me" (GREAT vocal layering), "You Should Do It" (Awesome bassline and jumpy all-around), and "Without Love" (Was this techno? AWESOME synth textures!). The rest of the album can certainly hold its own. I would strongly consider a good listen and take note of what music-making once was. Still very relevent in electronic music.
