Overall, Kashif's Condition of the Heart was a mellow album of '80s R&B. The swaying title track sashayed up to the R&B Top 40. The similarly soothing "Dancing in the Dark (Heart to Heart)" followed suit. Another smooth groove is "Stay the Night." The jumping instrumental "Movie Song" shows off his keyboard dexterity. "Botha Botha (Apartheid Song)" caused a mini-controversy. The title track and "Dancing in the Dark (Heart to Heart)" are also on his 1998 Definitive Collection.
