Much as we like Michael Henderson, we almost want to hate him for the cover of this one – which features him in a skin-tight Speedo – but the record is just too damn good! The music is fantastic – and is sort of an update of the earlier east coast smooth soul sound, with lots of elements of older harmony soul, wrapped up in some modern arrangements that work better for Henderson's voice than those on some of his other albums. The record's got a few tracks that are clinkers – more uptempo tunes that don't work well – but Henderson really shines on sophisticated interpretations of classics like "Never Gonna Give You Up" and "Make It Easy On Yourself", as well as on modern tunes like "Can't We Fall In Love Again" with Phyllis Hyman, "Take Care", and "Come To Me".
