Short on ideas even with a three-year layoff (they couldn't even think of an album title!), the Laura Branigan brain trust put its faith in drum programs to carry a collection of mediocre originals, a lame cover of Vicki Sue Robinson's dance classic "Turn the Beat Around," and a Bryan Adams castoff. Branigan sang with her usual gusto, but even slick producers like Richard Perry and Peter Wolf couldn't animate the material. Leadoff track "Moonlight on Water" saw a little singles chart action, but Laura Branigan's sixth album was her least successful effort so far, failing to break into the Top 100 best-sellers.
