AllMusic Review by

The production chores on singer Bert Robinson's 1989 I Promise You Love LP were split between the effort of Attala Zane Giles (who produced his Top Five R&B ballad "Heart of Gold") and his fellow Detroiters One Way. Robinson's vocal sound was in the style practiced by such other singers as Teddy Pendergrass and The Dells' Marvin Junior. He proves adept at handling the LP's slamming tracks -- the title track and "Real Thing" -- as well as the slow jam "I'll Be So Good to You" (which recalls Pendergrass' "Close the Door") and the edgy "Whip Appeal"-like groover "Sleepin' Alone."
