5.0 out of 5 stars 9 Moments Of Pleasure, 25 May 2006
By 
Mike "Toy's Boy" (Sydney, Australia) - See all my reviews
This review is from: A Moment's Pleasure (Audio CD)
A Moment's Pleasure is a great example of early Millie Jackson. This album finds Millie J in fine form, singing about everything from swapping lovers to exploring the joys of disco. A Moment's Pleasure is one of the most relentlessly upbeat albums of Millie J's career; it also signalled her move towards combining comedic elements into her music.

The album kicks off with the funky "Never Change Lovers In The Middle Of The Night" and then switches into a slower gear with the fine ballad "Seeing You Again". While I enjoy both of these great songs, the next 5 songs represent some of Millie's finest work. Millie's version of "Kiss You All Over" is irresistible. I could listen to the song all day, the vocals are fantastic and the instrumentation is so warm. Just when you think Millie has outdone herself, she takes things to the next level with the title track. "A Moment's Pleasure" begins with one of Millie's signature intros, telling her man that they should stop talking and "get with the gettin' on". Things hot up even further with Millie's groaning and request for a towel (I'll leave it to your imagination)! Needless to say, this is a classic.

"What Went Wrong Last Night" is split into two parts. The first part is a ballad about Millie sitting at home waiting for her man, while the second part has Millie going to the disco with "some nosy bitches". It's great stuff. This is followed by another favourite of mine, "The Rising Cost Of Love". The final two tracks are more funk based, particularly the edgy "We've Got To Hit It Off". The final song, "Once You've Had It" closes the album appropriately with another large dose of Millie J attitude.

A Moment's Pleasure is fun, catchy and uplifting. It is impossible to listen to this CD and not have a smile on your face. This is very highly recommended.
