The most amazing Luther album by far. Still listening to it regularly. A must for any Luther fan. Don't even consider buying a compilation albums of his greatest hits, buy this.

Another gem. There's a real groove running through this LP and if you can get Aretha's Get it Right cd as a companion from the same year you will complete the picture of what a great composer and arranger he was.

The USA reviews are overwhelmingly 5*. Track 7 is surprisingly adored. One opinion was "a dynamite closer". Damp squib more like. There's a 2¼ minutes intro (with ½ a minute of LV) before he starts bits of Superstar, taken more slowly than the Carpenters' original. It's a nice 4½ minutes but then the final 2¼ minutes are a real drag with far too many "it's all right" and other groans. The wasted time should have been used for another song.
Busy Body and For The Sweetness Of Your Love are good enough dance numbers and are not on the other 25 CD offerings currently.
Make Me A Believer is a lovely ballad but I'm distracted and irritated by occasional faint noises on the left channel that I think are a synth'd rhythm extra. Pointless and daft.
LV sings beautifully as usual but because of the disappointing track 7 and a total playing time of 41 minutes I really can't rate this above 3* when there are many better alternatives.

Classic, Essential Luther. 13 Oct 2002
By The Groove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Picking just one favorite Luther Vandross album is a daunting task for me, but 1983's "Busy Body" is among his very best. A great mix of suave upbeat r&b and smooth ballads, Luther's third CD is a classic release that puts much of modern music to shame. The upbeat track "For the Sweetness of Your Love" has Luther at the top of his game with his butter-smooth voice, the song's memorable bassline, and its undeniable groove. "Make Me a Believer" is a killer love ballad that's become a beloved favorite among fans, while he shares the spotlight with Dionne Warwick in "How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye." But the real deal is the dynamite closer, the 9-minute soaring love song "Superstar/Until You Come Back to Me." In an age where overprodced, trendy, and image-conscious singers rule airwaves and collect platinum discs, it's refreshing to know that there are mature, serious vocalists who have a genuine passion for music. "Busy Body" is a timeless r&b classic that, without hesitation, belongs in your CD collection.

Luther at His Best 26 Mar 2002
By rodog63jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of Luther's best albums. It is highlighted by superstar, but Superstar is not the good song on this album. A must for any Luther fan

Once Again,I Say Luther is Better Off Funky 7 Aug 2003
By Andre' S Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Make no mistake-Luther Vandross is an excellent modern R&B
cronner but he can SURE pack a punch on the right mid to uptempo
dance funk tunes and "Busy Body" has plenty of 'em.From the
opening "I Wanted Your Love","I'll Let You Slide",the slamming
"For The Sweetness Of Your Love" and the burning,sexual tital song-all specacularly produced by Marcus Miller.Oh and then
there is "Superstar" and all that stuff.But seek out "Busy Body" AND Marcus Miller's similar sound self-titaled 1984 LP (if you can) and you'll be so satisfied!

this is great vintage luther! 16 Mar 2000
By don prioleau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent CD with some great music. I remember searching six music stores in the rain for this album when it came out back in 1984. "Superstar" is obviously a great single in the library of Luther, but I really love "make me a believer". I had to reorder this one because I lost the album when my girlfriend and I broke up. The moral here is simple: Pick up this CD because it's great and never buy Luther together with anyone.

Old School Luther At His Very best!!!!! 15 Sep 2000
By Steven V. Elder Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I remember hearing this from a relative back in 85 and completely flipped out when she played the song "Superstar - Til You Come Back To Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)". One of the worlds most sweetest love songs ever written an performed by man. Once I picked up the CD, I was amazed how the rest of the album was just as good if not better. This is definately a CD to played to your loved one or some secret admirer. Other tunes to check out: "Make Me A Believer", "Busy Body", "I Wanted Your Love". Sdeez
