5.0 out of 5 stars Cheryl Lynn and Vandross equals magic!!! 8 Sep 2012
By barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the fourth release from the amazing songstress Cheryl Lynn. Her incredible range as well as her impressive power and emotive ability had already been on full display beginning with GOT TO BE REAL and STAR LOVE on her debut album. Here Luther Vandross takes over as producer and uses his skill and magic to bring out even more sides of this soulful diva. There is not a single miss of the 8 tracks on INSTANT LOVE. We still get the soulful funk, r@b and urban jams we expect from Cheryl Lynn but this time there is an even deeper depth. The first single INSTANT LOVE speaks for itself as a great dance soul jam. SAY YOU'LL BE MINE and I JUST WANNA BE YOUR FANTASY are superb r@b sensual jams. On SLEEP WALKIN and LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP Cheryl has a field day with her vocals. Superb funk.

But the true magic here lies in the ballads. Throughout the entire set Vandross brings out the best in Lynn but with the ballad BELIEVE IN ME she shows an emotianal side before untapped. The emotion is raw, heartfelt, haunting and gutwrenching as her vocals dig deep in her soul. For me this is the best performance of her entire career. Her range and entire skill as an artist are on display. And then the set moves to a duet with Vandross on IF THIS WORLD WERE MINE and the chemistry of these two together is awe inspiring. Two masters at the top of their game. There is another superb ballad DAY AFTER DAY but BELIEVE IN ME is worth the price of admission here alone.

BBR again goes above and beyond with their impressive packaging. There are 2 bonus tracks here and the entire cd is beautifully remastered. There is a booklet with extensive liner notes as well. Thanks BBR for presenting this amazing release from this definite diva the way it deserves to be. This is a definite must have for all true fans of soul/r@b music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Add Water! 1 July 2012
By Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cheryl Lynn is a Water sign (Pisces, March 11th), so if u add (her element) water to this stellar collection of inspired love songs and jams produced by the legendary, Luther Vandross, you get "Instant LOVE!"

From the hearty, synth-drenched, bass slappin' Funk of the first single (the title cut) full of Miss Cheryl's unique "stank" to the delicate, string-laden magnificence of the duetted (with Vandross,) "If This World Were Mine," you KNOW that flames are going to start shooting out of your speakers!

Here is a platter of R&B that so typified the beauty and power of a long-gone era in popular R&B music. Sad as it is to say, "They just don't make music like THIS anymore."

Additionally, the album's second song, "Sleepwalkin'" is another tasty jam full of zippy synths and a bassline that won't QUIT! In FACT, the album was originally due to be entitled "Sleepwalkin'," but at the last minute was changed to "Instant Love." I know this from when I first bought the "Instant Love" single in 1982 and it read "taken from the Columbia LP, "Sleepwalkin'" across the bottom of the 45. I thought it was a cool title, but in all truth, "Instant Love" somehow held more credibility by saluting Lynn's gigantic range and incredible talent. Besides, I fear to even imAGINE what they would have done photographically with THAT title! They probably would have had her dressed in a nightgown and cap with her eyes closed and her arms stretched out in front of her with a boombox on the bed sucking her in (like something out of The Twilight Zone! LOL!)

Other choice cuts include "Believe in Me" penned by Ashford and Simpson and the closing tender midtempo, "I Just Wanna Be Your Fantasy."

If REAL R&B is what you're after, then Lynn not only boasts perfect pitch and multi-octaves (unlike many of the singers today,) but she also COULD and still CAN blow the competition right out of the..."WATER!" Wait a sec...Did I say "competition?" SCRATCH that. There IS no competition when it comes to the big, crazy, booming vocals of the GREAT Cheryl Lynn!
5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic Rediscovered 13 Aug 2013
By Alex Litvak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cheryl Lynn's "Instant Love", released in 1982, was the Diva's fourth studio album. Lynn is a brilliant vocalist, blessed with the voice that can only be a gift from above. Lynn's voice works on every setting on this outing, which was produced by Luther Vandross. Vandross was a great producer and he smartly strips Lynn of all her previous Disco touches and infuses "Instant Love" with straight forward sophisticated R&B. This style suits Lynn beautifully and she is right at home with this material. The title track, which became a Top 10 R&B smash, is funky danceable R&B, a shining example of early 80's R&B. "Sleep Walkin'", "Look Before You Leap" and "Say You'll Be Mine" continue in the similar style and are treats. "I Just Wanna Be Your Fantasy" is a stunning mid tempo groove and a proverbial hit that wasn't.

As at home as Cheryl Lynn is on dance grooves, Lynn's vocal brilliance shines most bright when she slows down the pace. "Day After Day" and "Believe In Me" are both beautiful ballads on which Lynn displays a warmth and passion that is simply breathtaking. And of course there is Lynn's and Luther's arresting re-make of "If This World Were Mine", a rare case of the re-make being an improvement on the original. How "If This World Were Mine" and the title track did not cross over to become Pop smashes simply lacks explanation. 1982 was still a difficult year in the music industry for R&B artists and Cheryl Lynn was another victim of the lingering Disco and R&B backlash that swept through the US in late 1979. Like the previous year's "In The Night", "Instant Love" suffered a lack of promotion that it so richly deserved.

Big Thanks to Big Break Records for re-mastering this masterpiece. As always with any BBR re-master, the sound is great, the liner notes are informative and the striking oh so 80's original album cover art front and back is preserved. There are also 2 bonus tracks here, with "If This World Were Mine" and the title track presented in their single versions. A great find for any R&B collector.
