A touch of something silky from a man/wife duo specialising in top-drawer MOR-pop fare. As the title implies it's a programme of subtle, reflective music, typically lush USA arrangements with no corners cut and no expense spared. The team first rose to US prominence with First Call and here carry on many of that group's classy pop traditions. Melodie's voice is rich, warm and expressive, Dick handles chords on piano, keyboards and synthesizers with loads of class. All good stuff. The negative side is a tendency for the softness, the fluffiness of it all to induce a degree of sleepiness, mixed with a wandering off into totally unrelated thoughts. In other words there's not enough bite to hold the attention for long. The quality's undeniable though, so it depends what you are wanting from an album. Don't play it when you're tired, you'll nod off before you can say "relaxing, laid back music". Some good songs on display though, even if a bit predictable.
