Review

Two years after Gill's disastrous self-titled debut on Atlantic which lacked "chemistry" between Gill and producer Freddie Perren, Atlantic mocks that effort by titling Gill's new release Chemistry. These tunes find common ground with Gill's masculine baritone, and the young crooner sounds alive again. Featured here are tasty selections like "I Can't Wait Til Tomorrow," an urban-jump with a big-band sound, and the lilting "I Found Love." Linda Creed, the writer of many classics with Thom Bell, contributes her lyrical talents to three songs, including the moving ballad "Half Crazy," a dramatic, builder that Johnny nearly goes half crazy singing. There's also "Chemistry," a beautiful midtempo floater with a slick cosmic opening. ~ Andrew Hamilton
