5.0 out of 5 stars Luther at his best
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it play it and dance, 24 July 2014

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overrated, 3 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Busy body (Audio CD)
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.
