5.0 out of 5 stars The best track for track Loose Ends Album 23 July 2003
By "hm1"
Format:Audio CD
I have loved Loose Ends ever since my sister brought home the "Zagora" album when i was about 10 years old. I fell in love and have been a big fan ever since. Loose Ends are the true soul sounf of London and ruled the 1980's UK soul scene. Sadly the original line up of Jane Eugene, Steve Nichols and Carl Macintosh sadly split at the end of the 1980's but Carl "Macca" MacIntosh develoepd a new line up and produced a truly great album. Look How long is perhaps the best introduction to Loose Ends and is as strong in it's ballads "Love Controversy & Hold Tight" and it is in Club based floor fillers such as "Love's got me & Don't be a fool and Try my love". This is a collectors item that is track for track, an absolute pleasure. It is the last true Loose Ends album too and is a fitting end to a truly great era and a "Super Group" that ended their careers far to early.
Buy this album at all costs and hear a rather unique and all too rare sound of pure UK soul at its best. It won't be long before your buying the other albums too.

4.0 out of 5 stars 80s soul for the 90s generation - classssssic! 23 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For me, the early 90s was hell-on-toast in terms of commercial music; which is why this album (together with Innocence's 'Belief' and Young Disciples' 'Road To Freedom') was such a relief at the time, being so different from not only the current music standard but also from Loose Ends' own back catalogue of albums. It is an excellent example of the change that 80s soul was undergoing as it entered the 90s. 'Look How Long' contains many of the new elements introduced by Soul II Soul together with their own unique style; songs range from the smooth (Don't You Ever...) to the funky (Love's Got Me) to the sublime (Love Controversy), and not forgetting, of course, their hit single 'Don't Be A Fool'; this truly is Loose Ends at their peak. A must for fans not only of Loose Ends but any of the above mentioned. Well done Macca!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold Tight.... 16 May 2002
By WILLIE A YOUNG II - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Carl Macintosh perfected British Soul and his 80's band, the legendary Loose Ends, were THE group to beat at the height of it's popularity (no disrespect intended Incognito) and this final studio effort from the band's last incarnation is note perfect from beginning to end. I listed the hypnotic "Hold Tight" above because it's the most perfect track on the album and placed next to the even more heavenly "Love Controversy Pt.II" it stands as a perfect distillation of everything I love about British Soul, the minor keys, deep, bone-rattling bass, a smooth, ethereal vibe, muted trumpet and vocals that perfectly complement the arrangement, not overwhelm it. With new vocalists Linda Carriere and Suny Suleyman on board for this last go round, the king Of U.K. soul went out on top, at least performance-wise. His production touches are still evident in all modern music and his vocal style has been imitated by nearly male soul singer around. "Look How Long" is the sound of joyous, effortless brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Loose Ends CD 22 April 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD was my favorite when I was a freshman in college. It played everyday and loud through the dorm halls. By brother sent me this on cassette when he was in Germany. I fell in love with it because it was different from what was on the radio at that time. "Symptoms Of Love" was one of the tracks that kept my finger on the rewind button even though it was only 1:22 long. I had the loudest stereo in the dorm and I let everyone know daily. Other tracks that kept the R.A. knocking were: time is ticking, "try my love", "don't you ever" and "loves got me". I have all of the Loose Ends CD's now and this still is one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars So, HE was the loose end! 24 April 2001
By Str8 Ghetto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was overseas in Japan when I bought this, away from American Radio and after returning from Desert Storm. I hadn't heard any singles, and had no idea what the album sounded like. All I saw was "Loose Ends," and that was all the assurance I needed. Being that I was out of touch with some of the music news, I was not aware of any changes, so imagine my surprise...
Apparently, there was a very noticeable difference in the release of "Look How Long" as compared with the other previous releases. Well, actually, there are two (for those who were REALLY paying attention): Carl McIntosh took over as the predominant vocalist (Jayne Eugene no longer being with the group) and instrumentalist (Steve Nichol also departed), pretty much making Loose Ends a "loose end." Well, McIntosh seemed 2 pull it off well. I guess he kept the name 4 recognition purposes (I think even fewer people would have bought "Carl McIntosh of Loose Ends").
Still, this is a "Loose Ends" album, without a doubt. The English funkfest continued on tracks like "Hold Tight" (U immediately think of Soul II Soul), and "Don't Be A Fool", an up tempo track that was the type of music constantly coming out of England. "Time Is Ticking" and "Love Controversy Pt. 1" are also classic UK R&B, and nice dance tracks, 2 boot. "Cheap Talk" sounds like very classic Loose Ends material.
I guess McIntosh decided 2 go the American route on several of the songs...he actually used sampled music 4 some of the tracks (the final definitive factor between this and the previous Loose End releases). The rhytmn track on "Don't You Ever (Try To Change Me)" sounds sampled (there is hiss noise present), but I believe it was his own. Check the sounds he uses on "Try My Love" and the ever-popular drum track on "Love's Got Me". And does anyone recognize the sample track on "I Don't Need To Love"? Here's a clue: Teddy, Aaron...
Complete with female vocal leads (he has 3 guesting on 4 tracks, plus one co-lead on "Hold Tight" that is not mentioned directly on the credits) and a bonus track (The song "Let's Wax A Fatty", included only on the CD version, was just in time 4 the Vogue dance era, and incorporated a Chipmunk-like voice sample), this is a fitting end 2 a great era...UK Soul, as it existed at that time, was already fading out. And Carl McIntosh gave the "Loose Ends" name the chance 2 bow out gracefully along with the era. 2 bad he did not continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Commenting on Loose Ends album 4 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am a die hard Loose Ends fan and Look How Long has got to be the best album yet. The others only had a few good hits, but this one really gets into your soul. Every song has a true meaning and is the ultimate in smooth laid back listening. I have purchased this album 5 different times because i can't seem to get enough of it. I actually have purchased all the albums. One thing to the group, please don't making songs I really love your music.
