The Liner/Sleeve Notes:
Donna Summer had a few good hits back in her hay-day, she was kinda the Queen of Disco – then the 80’s came, she got all that bad publicity about some homophobic comments, but we’re not going to divulge into that. Anyways, here we go.
The A-Side is one complete track titled “Try Me, I Know We Can Make It” and hey, so far, only a few seconds in and it’s not a bad track, except for the vocals so far, they’re a little quiet for my liking, but the musicianship is pretty good, and the song kinda just fades into the background of the world and becomes easily forgotten, nothing overly memorable. I’m done with this side.
The B-Side opens with “Intro: Prelude to Love” and well, it seems to be a better track as opposed to the previous side, I definitely could probably dance to this, not quite sure, the moaning does throw me off quite a bit, it’s really awkward… moaning… heavy breathing… “Could It Be Magic” comes next, and you know, if I didn’t just realize she was singing the title over and over, I would’ve completely missed the song, but hey, it was an okay track, nothing overly special, not much of this album has. Next up comes “Wasted” and well, it too does not impress me all that much, it’s basically a background song with okay vocals and good musicianship. Nothing special. The album ends with “Come with Me” though, this song seems to be better than the previous tracks, and it makes up for the lamer ones. So hey, it’s not bad.
