Review

Rose Royce's third album contains two killer ballads: "I'm in Love (And I Love the Feeling)," and the much recorded "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" which Gwen Dickey works like Mary J. Blige wishes she could. Norman Whitfield's productions often included doses of classical elements and this album is no exception, the sampling and borrowing occur frequently. "Angel in Disguise," another sweet ballad, sounds a bit contrived. As effective on upbeat tunes "That's What's Wrong with Me," "Do It, Do It," and "First Come, First Serve," are first-class movers and shakers. A carnival barker on the intro mars the opening cut "Get Up Off Your Fat." ~ Andrew Hamilton
