This review is from: Tide Is Turning (Audio CD)
This is perhaps my favourite of the Jive albums Millie released in the later 80s - it starts in gentle mood with the title track, a yearning, eddying tune that rolls over itself in a touching way, like the caress of the waves with air bubbles, right at the water's edge ... Next comes the funkier Something You Can Feel, and then the mood changes with each new number, from the touching Are You That Someone? to the fierce but boxing-glove effective You Knocked The Love Right Outta My Heart, while I Almost Believed You ends the album on a note of rueful recollection. But the tracks all blend together very well with a distinctive bright, funky backing sound. Perhaps the best of all for me is In My Dreams, where her burnished, husky edge suits the song brilliantly and confirms what you already knew - that Millie has a sound unmatched in soul or any other popular genre. It has a crushed, woody feel - perhaps a coconut? - mixed with something more zesty, more fruity. Fruity above all ... It has a special depth, yet she is so humorous with it, it's a kind of perfection, and the cover photo is pretty amazing too. The red leather seems absolutely right for her, for a voice which expands without limit to tell of the human heart full-on.

Millie Jackson recorded with JIVE records in the mid 1980's, and this was her second offering that was released in 1988. These are all top quality tracks, and a nice combionation of mellow soul and raunchy dance numbers. Jive records never failed to produce top quality modern soul during this period, and the body of work they produced with Millie is a fine example!
